Diy Sugar Wax Recipe For Beginners

As someone who has dark hair, getting rid of unwanted hair has always
been a big pain. With shaving, hair grows back super quickly and I find
I have to re-do it again the next day. Waxing is messy AND
expensive…whether you buy it in store and do it yourself or you get it
done. Last week, I research how to make your own homemade sugar wax and found a recipe that seemed fairly easy. I tried it and I was sooo frikken impressed!


It took me 10 minutes to make (not even), I already had ALL the
ingredients in my kitchen, and it worked like a charm! So if you’re
trying to get rid of unwanted hair at home and need a cheap, quick, and
easy recipe, look no further!

How to Make Your Own Homemade Sugar Wax


  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated white sugar
  • 1/8 cup (30 ml) lemon juice (preferably bottled)
  • 1/8 cup (30 ml) warm water


In a small saucepan, add the water, sugar, and lime juice. Cook over
medium-heigh heat stirring constantly until sugar has melted. You’re
looking for the sugar to darken in color. It will go from clear, to
champagne, and then to amber pretty quickly so make sure you’re always
stirring! Take the mixture off the stove and allow it to cool. Once it
has reached room temperature it’s ready to be used!

Grab a spoonful of the cooled mixture and roll it into a ball. If the wax
is too brittle, it means you’ve cooked it for too long and will need to
start over again. If it’s too gooey and soft, that means you didn’t
cook it for long enough and it can go back in the pan.

How to Use:

Take the ball of sugar and spread it onto your skin with the
direction of hair growth. Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Then,
holding the skin taut, pull the wax back against the direction of hair
growth. Repeat on the same area if necessary. What’s really awesome is
that you can use the same wax over and over again! Just roll it back up
into a ball and spread onto your skin.

Once you’re finished sugaring,
you can store the ball in a container and just microwave it for a few
seconds when you’re ready to use again! How amazing is this? No need for
waxing strips, expensive trips to the salon, or complicated

Will it Hurt?

That all depends on your pain threshold as well as if you’ve ever
waxed/sugar before. If you have, then you know what to expect. But if
you haven’t, you should always test a small area first to make sure that
your skin doesn’t get irritated. Of course, some redness IS to be
expected, so use your judgement! To minimize the pain, you can always
take a Tylenol or other pain-reducing pill half hour before you start.
