The first natural home remedy is sugar wax. For removing unwanted hair, sugar is a hair removal treatment that has been used for hundreds of years throughout Northern Africa, the Middle East and Greece. Rather than a wax that adheres to your skin and then pulls your skin when you are removing the hair, sugar binds to your hair and then pulls it out at the root. This makes sugar waxing especially great for people with sensitive skin and peach fuzz because it’s less likely to irritate the skin. You can use sugar waxing anywhere you would like to remove hair, but you will want to grow the hair out to about 1/4 of an inch to help ensure that the sugar wax has something to grab hold of. For the natural home remedy of sugar waxing, you will need granulated sugar, water, lemon juice and a candy thermometer. For this DIY idea, you will start by combining the sugar, water and lemon juice in a small sauce pan. Heat the ingredients on low until the mixture reaches the hard ball stage on your candy thermometer. You want to make sure not to cook the mixture for too long. If you make the batch cooked just a bit too long, by the time it reaches room temperature, it may be rock hard. Remove the mixture from the heat and let the wax cool to room temperature. You want to make sure that the sugar wax has cooled enough because you can burn yourself with this natural home remedy if it is too hot. Use a spoon to help scoop up a bit of the wax and then use your fingers to help roll it into a ball. For the full step by step, tutorial looks at the One Good Thing by Jillee site.
