Homemade Eyebrow Wax Recipe 01: Sugar and Honey Wax
This recipe is a good one because the thick sugar mixture should grab your hair follicles and not your skin. Plus it’s not full of chemicals, and you can make it with whatever you’ve got at home.
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1 microwave-safe bowl
- 1 small spatula (like this one)
- Thin cloth strips (like these)
Start by pouring all the ingredients into the bowl and giving it a good stir. Then cook it 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until you have a bubbling and golden brown mixture. Remove the mixture from the microwave and allow the wax to cool down. You want the mixture to be thicker in consistency, but not so thick you can’t spread it. If you need to add more water/honey/sugar and continue to cook, go ahead. When you’ve got a thick but spreadable consistency, you’re ready!
Using one of your spatulas, scoop up some of the wax and apply to the facial hair you want to disappear. Next, place a cloth strip over the wax and press and smooth with your fingers in the direction the hair grows. Now comes the hard part. Take a deep breath and pull the strip in the opposite direction that the hair grows using one consistent and firm motion. Continue until all unwanted hair is removed.
