Home wax - wax, cleanse, smooth...

Although the strawberry home wax recipe is not as well known as the good old honey based body wax, it does a great job removing hairs.

It also provides the antiseptic quality that might come in handy if your skin is prone to infections and ingrown hair.

Strawberry honey home wax

Ingredients

10 large strawberries
2 egg whites
4 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of bees wax.

You will also need a double boiler in order to melt the bees wax. If you don't happen to have it, do this: place a small pot inside a larger pot that contains boiling water.

Food processor or blender to mix it all together.

Cotton strips

Preparation

  • Melt the beeswax and let it cool down a minute or so
  • Put strawberries, honey and egg whites into the blender/food processor and add the beeswax
  • When the mass is blended, spread on the spot you want to wax, cover with cotton strip and pull quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Strawberries are a strong antiseptic and prevent any possible skin irritation and infection, while egg whites rejuvenates it. They also make for a great body scrub ingredient as they easily slough off dead skin cells.

Same with honey based body wax, you will need to remove the sticky residue by preparing the following:

  • Boil 1 l of water (you can use distilled) and add 1 tablespoon of baking soda in it.
  • Rinse the legs off using a soft cloth.

The next day, when the possibility of irritation has decreased and your skin is smooth, prepare a mix that will certainly prevent ingrown hair.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon of glycerin
1 teaspoon of corn flour
100 ml of distilled water
5 drops of essential oil of lavender.

Blend the ingredients and apply on the skin while gently massaging the skin.

Glycerin is a natural substance that attracts moisture and keeps it locked in. For skin care, this means that it is an excellent way to moisturize the skin. It is mostly used in soap preparation and in production of lip balms as it creates a barrier that stops environmental conditions from affecting the skin.

Lavender has a wonderfully calming effect, on both the body and mind. It leaves the skin soft and smooth, all the while giving out its soothing, irritation preventing effect.
