There is no painless hair removal, although every advertisement screams about this magical property. In addition, sellers often lie about the ideal result. Beautician Honey Patel, an expert at Everything Be Kind, knows how to make wax for hair removal at home, which will surprise you with its end result from the first use. So, how to prepare wax for hair removal at home, read in our material.
- Sugar – 2 Spoon
- Lemon juice – 1 Spoon
- Beeswax – 1 Spoon
- Honey – 1 Spoon
Preparation and application
- Melt the wax granules in a water bath, and mix thoroughly to a thick consistency.
- Wax must be applied with special wooden spatulas. They can be bought in cosmetic stores or ordered online. 100 pieces of such spatulas cost about 100 rupees.
Properties of each component that is part of the wax:
Sugar – one might say, this is the main ingredient of wax, the main fixative of hairs.
Lemon juice – a natural acid cleanses the skin, corrodes dead skin particles, and makes the skin smooth.
Beeswax – disinfects, relieves inflammation, promotes tissue regeneration, has an analgesic effect, and moisturizes.
Honey -This procedure creates a detox effect for the skin: cleanses the pores, cleanses the skin of toxins, and helps restore skin health.
All components are absolutely safe to use. The only contraindication is individual intolerance to honey and beeswax.
You can do a small test in advance to check if you have allergies: apply a small piece of the product to the skin in the area of the wrist and hold for several minutes. If during this time you do not have redness, rash, itching, or other signs of allergy, you can safely use the product.
Another contraindication is skin lesions. If you have open wounds, cuts, scrapes, burns, rashes, or warts in an area of unwanted hair, do not apply hot wax to those areas. It is better to wait until complete healing. When waxing the bikini area, make sure that you do not have any dermatological diseases. And in the area of warts, it is easier to remove hair with ordinary tweezers.
Regarding painlessness, it is believed that the pain threshold of women and men is different. This is true. Besides, everyone is different. That is why you can never guarantee that by buying some kind of miracle wax, you will not feel pain at all.
After epilation, use creams that contain B vitamins or, for example, a soothing component such as panthenol. If we talk about folk methods of getting rid of pain, you can try ice before epilation. It works on the principle of lidocaine, freezing a certain area of the skin for a while.
