Homemade sugar wax

I know,to all ‘wax-ers’, you’ve probably heard of this homemade recipe before but maybe never dared to try it because you’ve no idea whether or not it actually works. I may not be a professional but I know that this  solution is definitely save and most probably the ingredients are non-allergic to most of the people out there.

There are two types of wax – the sugar wax and the wax,wax type.

Many would prefer the sugar wax as washing off is a clinch whereas waxing would be quite cumbersome because if the wax is too hot,it can’t be applied and when it’s too cold,it gets hard.Moreover,getting the remaining wax off would be hard because you’ll have to pick it out one by one.

I’ve personally use this recipe for my usual wax and it works great. I’m not sure for you but as for me,this is cheap and safe because I know what is used. Furthermore, I do not need to make a trip to the waxing salon and spend bucks there.

Here’s few easy steps for you to make your own:

you’ll need:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup water

What to do?

  1. Take a saucepan and add all ingredients listed into it.
  2. Constantly stir the mixture as it is easily burned when leave alone. DO NOT go away.Stir until there are no more sugar granules.
  3. Leave to cool and get ready to apply!

How to apply?

  1. Get preferably a cotton cloth,any old cotton bedsheet or muslin cloth.All would work  fine.Cut into strips.
  2. spread the wax onto the area where you want to wax then press the cloth firmly onto your skin.  (I personally prefer this method as it pulls out more)
    Spread the wax onto the strip and then apply it onto the area you want to wax
  3. Pull and curse!(optional)


  • The waxing part is usually done in the bathroom as it’s quite messy.
  • Make a batch of these mixture and then store them in a jar/container.You can put them in the fridge or just leave it out like that.
  • If you store them in the fridge,it can be easily reheated and reused.
