Skin Glowing Tips

Skin Glowing Tips
Here is a simple homemade body wax for smooth glowing skin. But, before you do this make sure you have everything ready…..Have several strips of cotton (I would use an old dress shirt. A flimsy cotton t-shirt may not be stiff enough). Also have waxing sticks ready. You can find really cheap on Amazon........

Now get your ingredients ready……honey, sugar, and lemon juice.. (I would aim for 6-8 ounces of honey and sugar and a tablespoon or two of lemon juice.

Heat the sugar in a small pot over medium heat until it turns brown and caramelized, Then add the honey and lemon juice and mix well until it's all blended. Then place the pot into a larger pot of hot water to keep it warm…otherwise, it will begin to harden if cools.

Using the wooden waxing sticks, smooth a small amount of the mixture on your arms or legs (or whatever part of the body you're waxing) and place the cotton strip over it. Press well so the cotton strip sticks……hold the skin taunt with one hand and use the other to pull the cotton strip off …taking the hair along with it.

Make sure to pull in the opposite direction of the growth. Due this in small sections until the area is free from hair. The mixture washes off easily with warm water when you're done.Be careful not to burn yourself, you need to keep the mixture warm, but not too hot.

If you're doing large sections, you might want to replace the water in the large pot. Remember, you need to keep the mixture warm because once it cools it becomes sticky….which why it works to pull hair out from the roots. Some women find it easy to just do this in the kitchen.

Keep the large pot of hot water on the stove on low and the smaller pot or container inside so the mixture stays warm and smooth.

This does take some practice at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy and quick. The important thing to remember is to have all the ingredients ready before you heat the sugar/honey mixture.

And, with any home remedy always try a small area first to make sure you don't experience any irritation. Just because it's natural, doesn't mean some people may have u

nusual reactions.
