Waxing removes the hair by the roots, causing the follicle to weaken so that the hair grows back in a longer period of time and will be finer and finer until there comes a time when it does not grow anymore, or that is, it will be eliminated forever.

Wax preparation

To begin, you must mix the two cups of sugar, with the lemon juice and water and if you want to add a fragrance, put two drops of tea tree oil, which also serves to provide certain properties to the skin.

Once this mixture is made, it should be poured into a saucepan in the kitchen over medium to high heat. This should be constantly stirring until you see that it melts and that a homogeneous mixture is obtained, with a consistency very similar to that of a syrup.

It is important to know that you should not stop stirring the mixture while it is on the fire because the sugar burns very easily and we do not want that to happen or the wax will be damaged.

Be very careful that the wax turns a golden brown color. To know if it is ready, if you have a candy thermometer on hand, insert its tip into the mixture and if you see that it has already reached 125 degrees Celsius, then you can turn off the heat and remove it from the kitchen.

Take the glass bowl and add the wax there and just wait for it to sit for a couple of hours before you can use it.
