This homemade version of body sugaring is budget friendly and just as effective as many of the store bought tubs. With summer practically here, this easy-to-make hair removal solution is just the thing for silky skin and sunny days. Plus it requires ingredients already in your kitchen!
Body sugaring is similar to waxing, primarily using a sugary mixture that is heated, cooled and applied to the area of the body for hair removal. Strips of fabric are pressed on top of the mixture and then ripped off. To remove all hair, continue to reapply section by section and rip off the fabric strips until the entire surface is smooth and hair-free.
Since the paste can grab and pull the hair out deep at its roots, the new growth is slower to appear than if shaved. Skin is left soft and smooth and the mess is minimal since the mixture is water soluble and washes off easily.
Wash the skin surface well with soap and water, removing all traces of oil, makeup, deodorant and dirt. Pat dry.
Combine ingredients in a heavy saucepan and turn on the heat to medium.
Once it starts boiling, reduce heat to low and cook until the mixture reaches 250°F.
Stir often to prevent boiling over and then take off the heat.
For a thicker paste heat the mixture to 245°F.
Let it sit until it's warm and then pour into a glass canning jar.
Continue to let it cool until it's at room temperature.
Warning! The mixture can cause serious burns if it's not cooled down properly before applying.
