Sugar, Lemon, and Honey

Have you ever noticed how sugar turns thick and wax-like when heated? It’s why we have delicious caramel and toffee!

Using sugar with honey can be a natural alternative to the costly paraffin wax used by so many spas and hair removal clinics. Adding a bit of a lemon helps to bleach the hair, reducing its visibility. Mixing honey and sugar make a thick wax that, once applied, will nourish your skin even as it sticks to your hairs–making it easier to rip them out.

Note: Trim your hairs roughly 10 days before using this remedy to maximize its efficiency.

Sugar, Honey, and Lemon Remedy

For this remedy, you will need:

  • Honey
  • Sugar
  • Lemon

Mix a tablespoon of sugar with a tablespoon each of honey and lemon juice. Place the mixture in a metal bowl, and place that bowl over a double boiler. This will heat the liquid slowly (preventing burning), dissolving the sugar and turning it into a thick wax-like paste.

Note: Add water to thin out an overly thick paste, or mix in cornstarch to thicken a too-thin paste.

Apply a bit of cornstarch to the areas you want to wax. This will help to prevent the wax mixture from clinging to your skin.

Using a wooden spoon, apply the wax to your skin in the direction of the hairs. Pat, a strip of waxing cloth into the still-soft wax, allow it to cool and harden, and rip off. It works like a regular wax, but far more natural!

Lentil and Potatoes

 

Potatoes contain acid that will bleach your body hair, lightening them and making them less visible. The addition of lentils will make the potato remedy more effective.

Lentil and Potato Remedy

For this remedy, you will need:

  • Yellow lentils
  • Potatoes
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice

Soak the lentils in a bowl of water overnight. Come morning, run them through a food processor or grinder to turn them into a thick paste. Crush one potato into the mixture, and add a tablespoon of honey and lemon juice each. Mix and apply the paste to your body. After 30 minutes, rinse it off.

Sugar and Lemon

This is a simpler remedy, one that will work more like a bleaching than a proper wax. The acidic liquid will help to bleach your facial hair, but the acid also scorches the hair follicles, weakening them and slowing down hair re-growth. However, the Vitamin C in lemon juice will provide your skin with the nutrients needed to produce collagen and elastin. It’s one of the best ways to get rid of body hair while keeping your skin healthy!

Sugar and Lemon Remedy

For this remedy, you will need:

  • Lemons
  • Sugar

Squeeze the juice of one lemon. You will need about 2 tablespoons of

 

lemon juice. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar and half a cup of warm water. This will form an acidic liquid that you can apply to your face with your hands. Apply it in the direction that the hairs are facing, and let it sit for about 20 minutes. You’ll feel your skin getting stiff and crackling. After 20 minutes, wash it off with warm water, using a gentle rubbing motion. This will help to exfoliate your skin and ensure the lemon juice/sugar mixture is absorbed into the follicles.

Repeat this remedy two or three times a week, and you’ll see hair lightening immediately. Overall body hair growth will decrease after a couple of weeks.

Egg and Cornstarch

Egg and Cornstarch

When eggs dry, they harden into a sticky, waxy substance that makes for a perfect mask. It not only nourishes your skin, but it makes it easy to rip out any hair clinging to the mask. By adding cornstarch, you ensure that the mask is thick enough to pull out even the most stubborn hairs.

Egg and Cornstarch Remedy

For this remedy, you will need:

  • 1 egg
  • Corn starch
  • Sugar

Crack the egg white into a mixing bowl, and stir in half a tablespoon of cornstarch and a tablespoon of sugar. Mix well until it forms a thick, smooth paste. Apply the paste to your skin, let it dry (25 minutes or so), and peel it off–pulling out hair in the process!
