Among the different hair removal options, body sugaring is a popular choice. There are a number of benefits of using body sugaring for removing hair. Unlike the depilatory creams, sugaring does not remove hair only from the surface of the skin. It uproots the hair, which not only helps in keeping your skin hair free for a longer time but also slows down hair growth. Furthermore, the sugar paste is applied to the skin at a low temperature that does not burn the skin. Hence, it is considered safer than using hot wax for hair removal. Moreover, body sugaring removes the dead skin and leaves your skin smooth and soft. Body sugaring is not only effective and safe, it is also inexpensive. You can easily make the sugar paste for hair removal at home.
Here Is The Recipe:
Things You Will Need
To make the sugar paste, you will need a quarter-cup of water, a quarter cup of fresh lemon juice and two cups of sugar.
How to Make the Sugar Paste
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Now reduce the heat and simmer the mixture. Keep on stirring the sugar mixture to prevent it from boiling. Check the temperature of the mixture with a candy thermometer. When the temperature reaches 250-degree Fahrenheit, turn off the heat. It usually takes 25 minutes of simmering to get the sugaring mixture of the desired color and consistency. If you don’t have a candy thermometer, check the color of the sugar mixture. When it attains a dark amber color, remove the saucepan from the stove. Allow the mixture to cool down slightly and then pour it in a glass jar or a heat proof bowl. When the sugar mixture reaches room temperature, it is ready for use.
