Skin care recipe - Hair remover

Homemade hair remover usually contains either honey or sugar, ingredients that make it sticky and able to pull the hair out.

Its simplicity of preparation and use make it a very popular method for removal of hair, both on the body and face. There are no harsh chemicals or ingredients in it that might cause an adverse reaction so it is safe.

This and other honey based body wax are great by themselves, but keep in mind that you need to prepare the skin before starting.

Use a body scrub before starting to to open up the pores, remove the layer of dead skin and also eliminate the possibility of ingrown hair.

When you're done, apply body moisturizer to soothe the skin and prevent irritation or redness.

The following recipe is courtesy of



  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • cornstarch
  • clean cloth cotton strips
  • wooden stick or spreader


Dust the area to be waxed, with cornstarch.
Combine the first three ingredients in a clean glass bowl, and microwave for two minutes.
Stop and stir your sugar mixture every 20-30 seconds.
Let it cool to a comfortable warmth, and, using a wooden stick, spread a very thin layer onto your clean skin.
Immediately cover the mixture with a strip of cotton fabric.
Briskly stroke the strip several times in the direction of the hair growth, and then, pull the skin taut, and quickly rip away the cotton strip, against the direction of hair growth.
As you proceed, you may need to reheat your sugar mixture in the microwave to keep it warm.
Do not boil it or overheat as you could easily burn your skin.
