Waxing Upper Lip with Homemade Brown Sugar Wax


Removing hair from the upper lip is an annoying, but sometimes necessary beauty procedure. Waxing yourself means that you can control the pain and using brown sugar, which is not texhnically wax, is a more natural way to do it at home.

  1. Mix 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1 cup of brown sugar and put the mixture over medium heat for 7-10 minutes. Stir and remove it when it becomes thick, like honey, for instance.

  2. Leave it to cool for a few minites.

  3. Make sure your face is clean and dry. There should not be any traces of makeup on your skin.

  4. Apply a light dusting of powder on your upper lip for protection.

  5. When the brown sugar wax is warm, but not too hot, it can be used.

  6. Apply the mixture on your upper lip with a spatula. In order to make the area a flat surface, pull it over your front teeth.

  7. Press a thin cotton cloth to the sugar wax and let it sit for about a minute.

  8. Pull the cloth with a fast sharp movement in the direction opposite your hair growth. (Usually, up towards your nose.)

  9. Rub an ice cube over your upper lip area to soothe skin and reduce redness.
