So lets talk about my epic DIY sugaring failure. I’ve been wanting to try an organic way of removing hair instead of using Nair and razor blades.
I made a typical, vegan lemon-lime sugar wax and it came out good but I kind of put the wax on my leg when my hair was a little too long . I haven’t shaved in four months so trying to pull inch long hair off my leg was a tragedy . I went to Instagram to test it out before posting on the blog.
If you guys want to try out my DIY Lemon Lime Hair Removal here’s the recipe:
1 Cup of sugar
1/4 Cup of water
1/4 cup of lemon- lime
put all three ingredients in a non stick cooking pan at a low medium heat
stir occasionally after the ingredients start boiling for five to seven minutes until the liquid turn into a light caramel brown
pour the substance into a heat resistant glass container and wait for the substance to cool down for 15 to 20 minutes
use crafting sticks or popsicle sticks to spread the wax
spread the wax going the direction of your hair (for my case it was downward) and pull the wax the opposite way
*** before sugaring please apply powder or cornstarch on skin**
Hopefully this recipe will not be a tragedy for you guys as much as it was for me.
