The female struggle for leg grooming is real although the end result is like a flawless blessing from nature.
Women who include leg grooming to their general body grooming routine will agree that shaving with razors or hair removal products will nix the hair on your legs but unfortunately, only for a short period of time.
To be honest, having to shave fortnightly is not the dream activity females look forward to.
For this reason, some women will opt for a better option of hair removal: waxing. Waxing remains a better method because this method pulls out hair follicles from the root rather than just the surface as shaving does.
Some waxing methods might be painful but are worth the jabs of torture because the results of the procedure last a longer period of time.
Spas, certified salons, and other beauty institutions are examples of commercial places offering waxing services to women. However, sometimes, you might want to try waxing yourself. And contrary to popular belief, self-waxing can be an easy process with the simple sugar wax.
To make the sugar wax you’ll need the following items:
- A cup of sugar
- A cup of raw organic honey
- Half cup of lemon juice
- White powder or cornstarch
- Cloth strips
Exfoliate your legs with natural ingredients like Dilka, salt, sugar and citrus juice
Place the sugar and lemon juice in a non-stick pan. This paste should be kept on low heat and stirred.
In the paste, add in the raw organic honey. Stir the paste adding a little bit of water, one or two teaspoons until it simmers. Usually, the paste should be a golden brown colour.
Transfer the paste into a stainless bowl and let to cool.
Apply a good amount of talcum powder or cornstarch across your dry, exfoliated legs
Apply the sugar paste on your legs: in the direction towards the growth of hair
The next step is to press the cloth strips across the sugar paste on your legs. The strips will stick to the paste as it drys off. When you notice this, pull the strip from the edge towards the growth of hair as quickly as possible.
The final step involves washing off your legs and applying the moisturizing cream or oil of choice.
Note: that this sugar waxing method is not ideal for waxing the upper lips, bikini lines and brows as it is too harsh for those areas.
