Make a sugar and lemon hair removal paste

It's bikini season, so you know what that means: swimsuits and lots of bare skin. Get rid of unwanted hair without dropping mad stacks at your drugstore or aesthetician by learning how to make your own hair removal paste. Watch this video to get the how-to.
This sugar hair removal technique only requires sugar, lemon juice, and water!

For centuries, women have relied on this and similar methods.

Sugaring is safe to use and is great for body and face.

All hair textures seem to work well with this recipe.

For best results, allow hair to be longer than a stubble...this will allow hair to be "grabbed" in the sugar.

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup water

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Bring down to a simmer once you have brought this to a boil. Adjust temperature as needed and continue stirring until mixture is a rich brown or amber color.

Pour into freezer quality plastic containers or mason jars (run jar under hot tap water and dry before using to avoid cracking glass).

Place lid on jar after product has cooled to room temperature or warm enough to handle.

The video says 2 cups of sugar but it only says 1 cup on this page...I believe 2 cups is the correct measurement.

I will try this it can't hurt and is cheaper and healthier for you than using some type of store bought cream for sure. Thanks Nina!

If I add it enough times will the hairs go away permently?

I read somewhere, that's after a long time of sugar waxing/sugar pasting, the hair follicle becomes damaged & I'm pretty sure it said that the follicles can't grow after a lot of damage to that area. I would look it up just in case, but I've been wanting to do this myself :) only done a little research but you should have a look at the pros & cons of it cause it's different for everyone, especially people with sensitive skin.

my gf face burn cause she use sugar nd lemon mix when it was hot, what she doin know?
