- Sugar – 2 tbsp. l.
- Lemon juice – 1 tbsp l.
- Beeswax – 1 tsp
- Honey – 1 tbsp. l.
Preparation and application:
- Melt the wax granules in a water bath, mix thoroughly until a thick consistency.
- You need to apply wax with special wooden spatulas. They can be purchased from beauty stores or ordered online. 100 pieces of such spatulas cost about 45 hryvnia.
Properties of each component that make up the wax:
Sugar can be said to be the main ingredient in wax, the main hair fixer.
Lemon juice – 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, moisturizes.
Honey – in this procedure, it creates a detox effect for the skin: it cleanses the pores, cleanses the skin of toxins, and helps to 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 beforehand to check if you have any allergies: apply a small piece of the product to the skin in the wrist area and hold it for a few minutes. If during this time you do not develop redness, rash, itching or other signs of allergies, 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 with unwanted hair, you should not apply hot wax to those areas. Better to wait until complete healing. When waxing in the bikini area, make sure you do not have any dermatological conditions. And in the area of warts, it is easier to remove hair with ordinary tweezers.
With regard to painlessness, it is believed that the pain threshold of women and men is different. It’s true. In addition, everything is individual for everyone. That is why you can never guarantee that by buying some kind of miracle wax, you will not feel any pain at all.
After epilation, use creams that contain B vitamins or, for example, a soothing ingredient such as panthenol. If we talk about traditional methods of getting rid of pain, then you can try ice before epilation. It works on the principle of lidocaine, temporarily freezing a specific area of the skin.
