Homemade Sugar Wax Recipe

Waxing is my most favorite method to remove unwanted hair. Not only it is effective in removing those hair but I believe it also pulls out dead skin and helps smoothen it. I only use other methods, like epilating or plucking, when I ran out of my cold wax and has no way to get my hands on a reliable wax sooner. For years, I've been relying on store-bought cold wax because I didn't have the courage to make one for myself but since I promised to try to live sustainably and lessen my negative impact to the environment so making my beauty products at home is definitely a good idea.

This homemade sugar wax isn't the first one I tried making but this is the most successful and effective so I'm confident to share the recipe with others who are interested in making their own as well. It is actually very easy and doesn't take much effort.

So without further ado, here's the recipe...


How to Use

For the wax to work effectively, wait for the hair to grow about 1/4 to 1/2 inch long.

1. Wash and dry the area that needs to be waxed. If it's too short, it may not be able to grip the hair and if it's too long, it will be painful to remove.

2. Scoop a small amount of wax and knead by stretching and folding until its color lightens.

3. Smooth the wax onto a patch of skin against your hair growth then flick the wax back in the direction of hair growth to remove the hair.

4. Repeat the process using the same wax on a different spot. You can continue using the same wax even if it has some hair on it.

5. Discard the used wax if it has become gooey and no longer able to remove the hair.

6. Clean the skin with a lukewarm wash cloth and wait at least 8 hours before washing with water or 24 hours for hot shower.
