1.- Sugar wax.
It is also called sugaring , and has the same effectiveness as normal wax, but with more benefits.

But unlike this one, it is much cheaper, and beneficial for health, because it has cheap ingredients that care for and nourish the skin.
– 1 ½ cup of hot water
– Juice of 2 lemons
– 1 cup of sugar
In a nonstick container, pour the lemon juice, the cup of sugar and the water. Mix well and cook over low heat. Cook without stirring, until it forms a thick liquid without lumps. It is very important to stir constantly, as it prevents the sugar from sticking or burning. Remember that if this happens, the wax does not work.
Mode of use
Wait for the mixture to cool or cool, otherwise it may cause burns or skin irritation. This procedure should be done in a dry place, without humidity, to avoid that the sugar melts and becomes unusable.
Once ready, it is applied in a similar way to wax: that is, it is spread in the area to be plucked with a finger or with a wooden spatula. Then it is pressed with a finger, stretching the skin; and with another finger, the wax is removed quickly, in the opposite direction of hair growth.
– Wash your face before and after applying the wax, because this way you ensure a much more effective and clean hair removal. Of course, do not forget to dry the area well, to prevent the sugar from melting.
– If after the hair removal you have red skin, you can apply a little aloe vera or tomato. The area will be relieved instantly.
