Can’t go to a salon for waxing and don’t like shaving too? If yes, try this homemade wax. To prepare it, you need to take a ceramic or glass vessel /bowl, add half a cup of sugar, a quarter cup of water, and half lemon juice. Heat the mixture on medium flame. Don’t put it directly on the stovetop. Place on the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water. This method keeps the sugar from burning directly from the heat. Keep stirring the mixture. As soon as it changes the shade to light golden, turn the heat off and keep stirring to cool the mixture a bit. Now moisturize your underarms, apply sugar syrup with the help of an ice cream stick or waxing palette knife. Tap this onto your skin and let it stay for a few seconds. Then, peel in the opposite direction of your hair growth.
