Depilation with Sugar Wax

  1. There are various methods of hair removal, ranging from shaving to epilation and waxing to lasering. However, in North Africa and the Middle East, oriental resin, also known as sugar resin, is a paste made from sugar and lemon.

Benefits of sugar resin

  1. Sugar wax is a super cheap depilatory remedy and also easy to make yourself. Sugar wax is also gentler than beeswax hair removal. In addition, the substance removes the hair roots and dead skin cells, ensures good blood circulation in the skin and allows hair growth to decline. Hair takes longer to come back and the hairs that come back are softer and thinner than after shaving.

Tips for hair removal with sugar wax

  1. Depilate in the evening so that the skin has time to calm down and recover from the treatment. If you still need to bathe or shower, do this after waxing. Bathing or showering opens up your pores, which can cause irritation and infections. The hairs should not be longer than one centimeter, but not too short, as the sugar resin cannot get a grip on hair that is too short. Make sure your skin is dry and oil-free. If necessary, you can first apply some talcum powder to the place to be depilated. Sugar resin residues can be removed with water. If you have sensitive skin, disinfect it after waxing.

Supplies for making the sugar resin

  1. About 100gr sugar Juice from one lemon Five tablespoons of water Cooking pot or pan Spoon Glass or aluminum dish

Making the sugar resin

  1. Put the sugar, lemon juice and water in a saucepan or pan and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring constantly. The syrup will start to thicken a bit. After four minutes it turns a golden brown caramel color (the color of liquid honey). That is the time to take the pan off the heat. Moisten the glass or aluminum dish with cold water and pour the syrup on top. Stir gently and keep moving until it cools down (about eight minutes). The paste will become firmer as it cools. Divide the pasta into four or five portions. One portion is enough to completely remove hair from one person; the other portions can be kept in plastic bags in the refrigerator. You can heat these portions with your hands, in steam or au bain-marie before use. You should pack these portions in bags immediately after making them; if you leave the sugar resin too long, it will solidify on the plate and make it almost impossible to do anything with it.

Preparing sugar resin for use

  1. Wet your fingers with cold water and have a portion of sugar paste. Pull the pasta apart and reassemble. Repeat this movement a few times. By kneading the paste, as it were, it becomes more elastic and tough like a chewing gum; the color will lighten.

The hair removal itself

  1. Spread the sugar paste on the skin to be depilated, in the direction of hair growth. Press firmly. Quickly pull the paste off the skin against the direction of the hair's growth, like a band-aid. Knead the paste again and continue on another piece of skin until you have finished all the desired areas.
