Most parlour visits are the perfect pamper sessions as you can get a relaxing facial or hair spa to emerge like a glowing goddess! But when it comes to removal of body hair and especially the facial hair growth, most of us dread that parlour visit. There have been times when I have delayed the visits till the time people started noticing the visible upper lip hair and when my eyebrows when from misshapen to downright bushy. Why? Because it hurts so bad! And having a sensitive skin doesn’t help as threading feeling like someone’s almost slicing my skin with each stroke. That’s when I decided to give some other options a chance and that’s how I chanced upon these easy homemade waxing ideas that make the process way less painful and are also good for the skin.

Sugar And Lemon Juice Wax

Sugar And Lemon Juice Wax

Heat a mix of 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp lemon juice, and 10 tsp water. After it cools down, start applying it like wax in the direction of the growth of your hair. Keep it for 20 minutes to let it dry and wash off with cool water while rubbing in circles. To begin with, start doing this thrice a week to see results. The sugar and lemon juice wax is an excellent hair remover as the sugar sticks to the hair to remove it, the wax is not very hot and the lemon lightens the skin tone.

Oatmeal And Banana Wax

Oatmeal is a great beauty product of nature as it contains hydrates the skin and has antioxidants that cut down redness and itching.
