Sugaring

Sugaring, sugar waxing or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. Historically, sugar was confined to the regions surrounding Persia until the first millennium AD. As a result, it is speculated that honey was the first sugaring agent. This seemingly too-good-to-be-true technique is called sugaring, and it’s become the No. 1 choice for hair removal for many people. “Waxing is a popular and easily accessible method for body hair removal,” explains Daria Afanaseva, founder of Sugaring Organic Waxing in New York City, “But once you try sugaring, we bet you never go back!”

Sugaring is a natural hair-removal technique. Unlike traditional waxing, sugaring does not require paper strips. Instead, technicians use a special paste made out sugar, lemon juice, and water. Aesthetician use their hands to smoothes the paste onto the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth and lets it sit for a few seconds. The paste cools a bit and gets slightly harder. Then it’s flicked off in the direction of hair growth to keep the hair intact and prevent breakage.

Ingredients

  1. Sugar                          1 tablespoon
  2. lemon juice                 1 teaspoon
  3. organic honey            1 teaspoon
  4. Flour                           1 to 2 teaspoons
  5. Piece of cloth/ waxing strip
  6. Spatula for waxing or butter knife

Method

  • Take sugar, lemon and honey and mix them well.
  • Heat this mixture for three minutes in a vessel to make it a smooth paste.
  • If paste is bit thick, add water and mix well.
  • Allow mixture to cool at room temperature.
  • Dust body parts with flour.
  • Use the waxing spatula and apply a generous amount of warm mixture on the areas .
  • Cover it with a cloth or waxing strips and press to make it stick on the paste.
  • Pull the strip in the opposite direction if your hair growth to effectively remove unwanted hair.

OH NO, NO MASCARA!

Here’s a little trick I picked up while on vacation sometime ago. As you know vacays are supposed to be documented even if it’s for your eyes only, and you absolutely want to look your best, especially your makeup.

My go to makeup, are mascara , eyebrow pencil and lipstick. I can live with that, but I absolutely cannot live without either.

On this one night I started to get dressed for a night out. While applying my makeup I realized I grabbed the wrong container of mascara, oh no, no mascara, no eyelashes.

Meaning, I have little to none to begin with. To think, I would usually apply more than one, or up to three different mascaras at a time, because I hardly ever wore fake lashes.

At first I panicked, then I went into survival mode and said, think girl think! I immediately ran to the bathroom, turned the facet on hot and lay my empty mascara container in a cup, and let the hot ran on it for about 20 seconds.

Guess what guys?

You guessed it.

I had mascara. Whew! What ever little that was left and dried up in the container, melted and I was able to finished my makeup. I saved my night and myself. Thank goodness, or I would had to try that paper bag over my head trick.

Anyhow, I did that for the rest of the vacation and felt like the mascara fairy godmother since then.

Try it and me know if it works for you.
