This natural body sugaring recipe is for hair removal. It is cheaper that buying wax for hair removal because you can make this at home whenever you need it.
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 cup lemon juice (pure, not lemonade please!)
candy thermometer, if you don’t own one
In a medium saucepan, add water, sugar and lemon juice and heat over low heat. Stir the mixture every 15 seconds or so to prevent burning. Keep heating until small bubbles begin to form, then check temperature with a candy thermometer. Once the thermometer reads 250F, remove the saucepan from the heat.
Allow the mixture to cool for about 15 minutes, or until it is cool enough to touch without burning your skin. Place body sugaring mixture into a microwave-safe container and seal tightly. Body sugar will keep for one month before needing replacement.
Heat in microwave before use. You can use an old cotton tshirt cut into stripsfor hair removal. You can apply with a wooden spoon or stick in a layer about 1/8″ thick, then press cotton strips on top of body sugar then pull to remove, making sure to remove in the opposite direction of your hair growth. Pull as quickly as possible!
