Sugar Wax Remedy

Sugar Wax - Home remedy for Excessive Facial Hair:


Sugar Wax - Home remedy for Excessive Facial Hair:  This is a natural version of the wax used in beauty salons, albeit much safer and better for the skin. It is made by heating a mixture of sugar, lemon, and water until the sugar melts and turns brown. This concoction should be used while it is still hot. After applying a moderately thick layer on the skin, a muslin cloth or a commercially available waxing strip should be placed on the area to be waxed. This strip should be pulled in the direction opposite to that of hair growth.

Another type of natural wax that can be used is honey wax. This is a mixture of honey, lemon, and sugar heated in a similar way. However, this is more expensive to make than sugar wax.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
