You want a hair-free bikini area, but you don't want to spend 50$ for that or you are uncomfortable with the idea of letting a stranger come near your bikini area. Why, worry about that when you can give yourself a Brazilian Wax treat, all you need is a mirror and 10$.
While making your own sugar wax is simple, it's quite an art. 2 cup (400 g) white sugar 1/4 cup (30 mL) lemon juice, orange juice (squeezed), or vinegar 1/4 cup (180 ml) water Waxing strips (from the store or a piece of cotton fabric/t-shirt) Use a large stainless steel pan.
Stir occasionally. Keep a close watch, under-cooking is reparable but over-cooking is not . Lower the heat, if it starts boiling again.
Now, the wax is supposed to turn from translucent to honey brown. Take it off the heat immediately when you reach this point. It can take around 6 to 20 minutes. Take a butter knife and see how thick it is. try dropping it in a glass of water, it should form a bead and should not trail, if it's runny and not at all like wax, through it in the trash and start over.
Let it cool to the point where it is hot but does not burn you. It will lose its stick if it cools too much. Apply baby talcum powder to the area, making sure that every last bit is dry. As you go, you may need to reheat the wax. apply more talcum powder if you start to sweat or experience more pain.
If the wax is too hot , wait for it to cool down. If it is too cold it won't tear off 100%. Apply it in the direction of the hair. Hair should not be too long, try having them about 1/4 - 1/2 an inch (.63 - 1.2 cm). Place a mirror between your legs to have a good look at your undersides.
starting from the area nearest to navel. To ensure clean removal, rub the strips into the wax. You can use waxing strips from the store.
Leave the strip on the area for 30 seconds, depending on its size. Keeping it manageable, do one or two at a time. Rip it off quickly in the opposite direction of the hair gowth.
