5 DIY Sugar Wax Recipes For Hair Removal
To make sugar wax, you need the following
- Honey (sometimes)
- vinegar (sometimes)
- Wooden spoon
- Mason jar with a lid
- Pyrex measuring cup with a handle.
- Regular measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
Homemade hard sugar wax recipe
This is the most basic DIY sugar wax recipe you’ll make.
It contains sugar, salt, water, and lemon juice.
Again, this is a thick, sugaring paste.
So you don’t need strips to use it.
One tip that helps you nail the best sugar wax is to let it cool slowly.
I used to take my wax from the hot stove into ice-cold water.
Then I wondered why it turned out brittle and hard.
But since I started allowing the wax to cool on its own, I got good, pliable sugar wax to remove unwanted hairs.

Sugar & honey wax
This honey sugar wax is one of the best sugar wax recipes I’ve made.
But don’t even think you can skip lemon because of honey.
You must use lemon plus honey.
Also, honey makes the sugar wax easier to knead.
And it also adds more moisturizing and skin-lightening benefits to the wax.
So, your skin stays moisturized and brightens over time when you use the honey sugar wax.

DIY brown sugar wax
This is where it gets interesting.
I used to think you can’t make sugar wax with brown sugar.
But one day, I tried it, and it was amazing.
Brown sugar wax, just like the honey counterpart, is easy to knead.
Also, brown sugar has a caramel texture when you melt it.
Which makes the wax soft and easy to use.

Microwave sugar wax
For those who don’t like cooking on the stove, you’d love this microwave sugar wax recipe.
The ingredients to make it are just the same as the classic hard sugar wax.
But only that you’d mix and cook it in a microwave-safe Pyrex glass measuring cup.
Then you’d let it cool slowly as well.
Maybe I’m just biased, but this brown sugar wax hair removal is less painful compared to the others.
Again, I might be bais because I was blown away by how great the brown sugar wax turned out.
Or maybe my skin developed a higher pain tolerance.
So, sugaring isn’t as painful as it used to be for me.

Homemade sugar wax without lemon
You know when you want to cook and get stuck because you’re missing an ingredient?
That’s where this no-lemon sugar wax recipe comes in.
Did you know that you can make sugar wax with vinegar?
Oh yes, you can.
If you need to make sugaring wax and you’re out of lemons, grab the vinegar bottle.
It doesn’t matter which vinegar – white or apple cider will work.
I’ve used both in the past to make sugar wax.
The only difference between this sugaring wax recipe and the others is the vinegar smell.
Though, it’s not a bad smell.
Well, it’s the smell of vinegar.
But the finished wax removes hair and leaves your skin smooth.
So ignore the smell and make the wax for smoother skin.

Frequently asked questions about sugar wax recipes
Can you use sugar wax for bikini wax?
Yes, you can get a full Brazilian wax with homemade sugaring wax.
That’s what I use whenever I need to wax myself.
Here’s a post about steps to do Brazilian wax at home with DIY wax.
Why is sugar wax not sticking to the skin?
When your skin is sweaty or oily, the sugar paste won’t stick.
That’s why you must only use sugar wax on dry, oil-free skin.
So use corn starch, powder, or towel papers to soak up and prevent moisture on the skin when sugaring.
But if you’re waxing your feminine area, use four folds of towel paper to dab sweat before you apply the wax.
Conclusion on the best sugaring wax recipes
So those are my top five sugar wax recipes.
The reason they’re the best sugar wax recipes you’ll make is that you don’t need strips to use them.
Which keeps things minimal for you.
Also, you can start and finish your waxing sessions within minutes.
Without worrying about washing your reusable strips.
Instead, you can focus on the after-wax skincare routine to make your skin smoother.
