“Ouch! That hurts!” That sentiment is the only one that accurately describes a routine wax appointment. Even though we love the look of our svelte arms and legs afterward, waxing is typically a very painful process. While it removes unwanted hair, it may also cause redness, inflammation, irritation, and skin sensitivity. Because your skin is put in a very delicate position afterward, how you choose to wax can have serious consequences for your skin. If you choose to get a waxing from a spa or a salon, they might use harsh chemicals to eliminate unwanted hair. Even a laser treatment can be too harsh for your skin and may cause skin damage.

Now that summer is almost here, we must ask ourselves whether waxing is worth the pain we put ourselves and our skin through. “Should I endure several wax appointments or should I forego that and just stay inside all summer?” Instead, why not try a natural wax remedy? Natural wax remedies contain none of the harsh chemicals associated with popular wax treatments, and they also won’t damage your skin. We have 3 natural remedies that you must use so that you are ready for summer. You don’t need to spend all that money at a spa when you can easily assemble any of these waxes right at home.

1. A Quick & Simple Natural Wax to Remove Unwanted Hair Easily

As we mentioned above, a lot of professional wax treatments use a lot of harsh chemicals on your skin. However, there is a recent trend that many people are following as an alternative to waxing. Sugaring is the process of applying warm sugar (usually brown sugar) in the direction of hair growth on your skin and then either rolling the wax off your skin or removing it with a cotton strip. There are several benefits to using brown sugar over traditional hot wax. First, unlike hot wax, warm sugar only sticks to your hair, which leaves you less susceptible to skin issues after you get rid of unwanted hair. Second, a basic sugaring mix consists of brown sugar, lemon juice, and water, so you shouldn’t be concerned about being exposed to harsh chemicals when you use a sugaring wax. Finally, because brown sugar is readily accessible to all of us, we don’t have to resort to a professional when we are able to do it ourselves. Sugaring can even be used to eliminate unwanted facial hair, too.

Ingredients

¼ tsp. of turmeric powder

1 tbsp. of water

1 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice

½ cup of brown sugar

Instructions

Mix the ingredients together.

Heat the mixture on low heat until it bubbles and turns dark brown.

Let the wax cool down until it is warm.

Apply the wax on your skin in the direction of hair growth.

However, if you use a natural wax remedy, you can take steps to ensure that your skin calms down and returns to a normal, healthy state at a much faster pace.

This is likely due to the antioxidants and other nutrients found in cucumber.

A major benefit of using a natural wax home remedy is that by adding more natural ingredients, it can tackle multiple issues besides unwanted hair removal. For instance, adding fuller’s earth and rosewater to a wax remedy can be very beneficial to your skin. Fuller’s earth can deep clean your skin, detoxify it, and unclog your pores. Because of fuller’s earth cleansing nature, your skin will be healthier and more balanced after using it.
