Homemade Eyebrow Wax Recipe 02: Sugar and Lemon Juice Wax
Using fresh lemon juice is awesome because the lemon juice acts as a natural anti-microbial agent to fight bacteria and prevent bumps. Plus the vitamin C is awesome for your skin! This is one of my favorite homemade eyebrow wax recipes!
- 1 c. white sugar
- 2 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice (this is important!)
- 2 tbsp. water
- medium sauce pan
- spoon, spatula, cotton cloth pieces
Start by putting the sugar, water, and lemon juice in the saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar begins to dissolve. Continue to cook for 8-10 minutes until the mixture thickens and darkens, similar to honey. When the consistency is right, remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
While the mixture is cooling, prep your area by giving it a good scrub and making sure you know what you want to wax. Then use a small spatula to apply the wax in the direction of hair growth. Place a cloth strip over the area and smooth in the same direction while the wax cools more. Then using one continuous motion, pull the strip off in the direction opposite of hair growth. Continue until all that yucky hair is gone!
