DIY Body Sugaring Recipes For Removing Hair

DIY Body Sugaring Recipes For Removing Hair
Centuries ago in ancient Egypt, Cleopatra and her handmaidens discovered a secret beauty treatment that magically and painlessly got rid of unwanted hair…and this recipe was lost for years until recently discovered. At least that’s what the television infomercial declared years ago when I first became aware of body sugaring. I pulled out my credit card, ordered my tub, gave it a try and found that a) it wasn’t painless like the infomercial stated and b) it was pretty pricey considering I could go to the salon and have a professional take care of the mess for just a few bucks more. I never placed another order. Over the years I’ve discovered a few homemade versions that do just as good a job as that pricey tub cost me, and they cost only pennies to make! Now we’re talking ;). If you’re wondering what this is, it’s epilation that’s very similar to waxing, a sugary mixture is heated then cooled and applied to the area of the body that you want to get rid of hair. Supplies Needed: That’s it!

The core is divided into a stabilization and a movement system.
