Sugar paste hair removal

Today post about sugar paste. This is not a sweet cream with which we will spread a slice of bread. Sugar paste is a mixture of sugar, water and lemon that can be used for depilation.

depilation with sugar paste

I have heard about sugar paste a long time ago, but I have never had the opportunity to test it. Some time ago it was the first time I did it (surprisingly the consistency came out perfect. Many girls have a big problem at first).
First I will give you a proven recipe, and then I will say a few words about the epilation itself.
- 2 cup brown sugar
- 1 lemon juice
- 1 / 4 glasses of water
First, pour sugar into the pot, then squeeze the lemon juice and add it to the sugar. Finally, pour water. We cook about 20 minutes. You will need a little bit of character with this paste, because if you don't burn it, you have to mix it all the time.
Cool (note! The paste is very hot!), Pour into a container (I recommend a plastic one, e.g. after Grycan ice cream (click). Pastes may seem a little, but this amount is enough for us to epilate several times.
sugar paste recipe
I used sugar paste like wax (with depilatory strips that can be bought in a cosmetics store. Mine cost PLN 9 / 100 pieces).
First, we powder the skin with baby powder, then we put a spatula under the hair with a spatula. Press the strip and break in the direction of hair growth (from top to bottom, not like wax: from bottom to top).
Unfortunately, I can't use sugar paste because, contrary to popular belief, that I was not allergic, I had terrible red spots. I don't know if my skin just reacted to the pain or something else was the reason.
And if we're already in pain ... my pain threshold is probably sooo low, because I managed to depilate only one leg, while the other I shaved with a simple razor ...
The effects after the paste are visible to the naked eye, the bar can actually see the hairs that are pulled out along with the bulbs.
Maybe someday I will come back to sugar paste, but at the moment I have apologized with the machine ... I am also thinking about laser hair removal, but I am afraid of the pain that is present during these procedures.
Any of you did laser hair removal? It hurt?

    I've heard a lot, but I've never tried - so far I prefer traditional hair removal.

      Well, unfortunately .. some probably just are not suitable for this: D

    I am also thinking about laser hair removal, but once that the road is still painful. But we will have peace for a long time.
    I also have a very low pain threshold, I'm afraid that using such a paste will be impossible for me. And I suspect that I wouldn't depilate even one leg 😉

    I'm also interested in this laser, but so far I'm only using the razor. I am also thinking about the epilator, but I heard that it hurts a lot: p

      I used it once and it ended up like a sugar paste. Pain and lament 😉

    for now I remain faithful to the machine, painlessly and smoothly 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 4 March 2015 / 16: 07

      It is a pity that the hair grows back so quickly, otherwise it would be an ideal tool 😀

    It seems to me a very painful way (like any depilation), I am tempted by a laser, but I do not know at what price.

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 4 March 2015 / 09: 17

      A series of these treatments is not the cheapest 🙁

  10. Avatar Mrs.Rose 4 March 2015 / 06: 47

    It is new to me such a paste 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 4 March 2015 / 16: 09

      I'm glad you learned something new here. Drop in more often 🙂

    I've just finished my series of five laser hair removal treatments and recommend it with all my heart! I made a bikini and armpits. this is not the most pleasant procedure, but for survival - it depends on the pain threshold (you can anesthetize with emla ointment and then painlessly). the effects are fantastic, I have very few hairs, a few remain there, but compared to what was heaven and earth and in principle in these places I use the razor from time to time to shave off the remnants of the bikini and such blond hair, which in total I can't see at all, and my armpits are now smooth 🙂 I'm starting to put my feet back on my feet! 🙂

    I used it once, but I can't depil my legs myself 🙁

  13. Avatar Kaprysek 3 March 2015 / 16: 26

    I am a fan of waxing, but sugar paste also tempts me. But the laser is not very good; /

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 3 March 2015 / 16: 35

      It's very easy to do and is supposedly efficient. I won't say that, because mine probably won't be used any more: P

  14. Avatar Pepa 3 March 2015 / 16: 16

    I did depilation with sugar paste and it ended up with terrible bruises. This way is not for me 🙁

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 3 March 2015 / 16: 30

      Well ... probably this method of hair removal is simply not for us: P

  15. Avatar scarlet23 3 March 2015 / 15: 26

    I am very tempted by laser hair removal ...........

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 3 March 2015 / 16: 30

      Me too, but unfortunately a series of treatments is a big expense. In addition, apparently it hurts more than sugar paste, which effectively deter me: P

    • Avatar Lady Cosme 3 March 2015 / 19: 58

      the pain is not that bad, and it's worth the effects! paste or wax must be tired every 3-4 weeks, and here 3-5 treatments and hair from the head basically for life! 🙂 you can anesthetize yourself with ointment and then the procedure is painless at all 🙂
