Here is the best sugaring recipe I have ever created. But there were a couple of things that make me not want to do this to myself again. If you are use to waxing this is a great alternative but if you are like me and are used to shaving... brace yourself.
8 oz sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbls water
2 tbls lemon juice
Stir until it boils and turns into a caramel color (aka everyone in the house can smell it and they are asking what you are cooking)
Pour it into a glass or metal bowl that can handle the heat.
Let it sit for about an hour.
Scrape it out of the bowl and knead it with your hands by stretching it out like taffy.
Apply in the opposite direction of the hair growth then rip it off in the direction of the hair growth.
The hair will not grow back for 10 days. (At least this was my experience)
Warning: I was left with a few bruise like marks on some of my most painful pulls. Like the follicle or pore area. But they went away after a few days. I think I'm just not use to this. Not sure I'll do it again. But really loved being hairless for a couple of weeks. :D
Thanks for watching.
