– Wax of your choice (preferably a wax that is meant for hair removal)

– 3/4 cup sugar or salt, or more for a bigger batch

– Two tablespoons water

– 1 teaspoon lecithin (optional)

Directions: Before you start making your wax, read the instructions on the wax package to make sure you are using it correctly.

Before applying wax, choose a location that is well ventilated. Ensure there is no wind. This will help ensure that your hair remains tangle free after being removed with the wax.


1. Wet your skin so that your hair becomes very rigid

2. Apply wax in the opposite direction of your hair growth. You can apply it with a spatula or brush, but using your hand works as well (make sure to use gloves for this).

3. Press a cloth strip against the wax and hold it tight for 10 seconds

4. While keeping the cloth strip taut, quickly pull it off against the direction of the hair growth. (If you are using pre-waxed strips, make sure to rub them on your skin before applying wax to ensure they stick well)

5. Repeat steps 1-4 until all of the desired area is waxed

Tips about Waxing:

You can apply baby powder or oil to your skin before waxing, but these are not necessary. If you have sensitive skin, it is best to test a small patch of your skin with the wax before applying it all over your body. This will ensure that you do not have any adverse reactions to the wax.

If you are using hair removal strips, make sure to rub them on your skin before applying wax to ensure they stick well. If you are using pre-waxed strips, be sure to rub them against the direction of hair growth before applying wax.

If your skin feels very hot while removing the wax, let it cool for a minute before removing the wax again.

If your skin is red after removing the wax, apply aloe vera to the area. If the redness does not go away after a few hours, it is best to consult your doctor or dermatologist for waxing advice.

When applying wax, make sure to apply in the opposite direction of hair growth. Always pull the cloth off in the opposite direction of hair growth as well. For example, if you are pulling the wax upwards, pull the cloth off downwards. If you are pulling it to the right, pull it off to the left.

Do not brush or rub your skin in between waxing sessions. This can cause small hairs to stick above the surface of your skin when they should still be in their roots.
