DIY SUGAR LEG WAX
Get ride of disposable razors once & for all with this easy recipe!
This sugar wax is super easy to whip up and will leave your skin silky smooth. Not to mention it is entirely compostable!
1 cup sugar
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup water
paper bag (ripped into strips) OR cloth cut into strips (wash in hot water & reuse)
- Whisk sugar, lemon juice, and water in a small sauce pan.
- Heat mixture on low heat and wait 10 to 15 minutes until it turns amber brown. Stir only 2 to 3 times.
- Pour sticky syrup into a plate or bowl. Let it cool a bit, then use a popsicle stick to spread onto skin.
- Cover with a paper bag strip, and rip off!
You may need to heat the mixture up a few more times if it cools to much to spread on your leg. Also, be sure to compost the waste when you’re finished!
@kula_xo on instagram recommends applying corn starch (prob could use arrowroot too) on legs before waxing to prevent it from sticking to skin! Great tip.
