Look no one likes to deal with it but woman do sometimes get unsightly hair on their upper lip. It’s not attractive. Can’t afford a waxing? No need to panic. You can make a DIY wax mixture at home with just a few ingredients and get rid of the hair just like if you would if you went to a spa. But you won’t spend spa money.
You will need:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- A wooden spatula or ice cream spoon
- Cotton patches
Now in a pan, heat all the ingredients over medium heat. Stir constantly for about 8-9 minutes.
Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl that can handle hot liquids. Coat your skin with just a little face powder so you don’t burn the skin. Test the temp first on you wrist like you would a baby’s milk. Warm but not scalding is the best rule of thumb. Apply the sugar wax to your upper lip, using the spatula. Press down square of cloth. Press well and in one sweeping motion, rip it off. There you go, you are waxed.
