Whoever thought of the brilliant idea of removing body hair by way of waxing definitely deserves a million thanks from all the ladies around the world. Here’s your guide to waxing your body hair at home using some homemade wax.
While waxing finds increasing acceptance for removing hair from legs and arms, it’s also good option for removing hair growth from your chin, forehead, sideburns and upper lip. You can even wax hair from her private areas when you’re getting ready for that special night or when you want to sport that sensuous bikini.
Although waxing can be flexibly used to remove the hair from most parts of the body, it’s prudent not to try and wax on areas like breasts, nipples, and nose and around the eyes because the skin in these areas is somewhat sensitive and the pain can be unbearable.
The best advantage of waxing is that the hair gets pulled out from the root thus it will take longer for the hair to grow back. Also in some cases regular waxing leads to permanent hair loss, so gradually over time you may see a much diminished hair growth in those areas. It just needs a little practice and you can learn how to do waxing at home, and while it’s definitely convenient because you don’t need to spare the time to go to the beauty parlor the other advantage is that you save a lot of money.
To make your own homemade wax you need about 2 cups of sugar, and about Â¼ cup each of water and lemon juice. Put everything into a saucepan and cook till the sugar dissolves and it turns somewhat thick. When it’s nearly done the color would automatically changed to brown.Â Be careful not to overcook it or else it will turn too hard when it cools down.
Before you begin waxing, check the wax for its temperature because if it is more hot than what your skin can tolerate you will end up with burns all over. Use a spatula or a butter knife to spread the wax on your hair growth, and remember to spread it in the direction of the hair grow and not against it.
Now place a strip of cotton cloth over the wax and press it firmly so that the cloth sticks to the wax. Let it stand for a minute or two and then pull off the cloth strip with a jerk against the direction of the hair growth. Apply some ice or coldwater on the area to soothe the skin. And repeat the same for all the areas from where you wish to remove unwanted hair.
