How to store handmade brown sugar wax

Store your DIY brown sugar wax on the countertop or fridge until you can use it.

Homemade sugar wax can last weeks or even months in the fridge.

I usually keep mine on the kitchen countertop.

But store yours in the fridge, if you prefer that.

How to clean up after making brown sugar wax

Fill your saucepan with water, and add the wooden spoon and the candy thermometer.

Let them soak for a bit.

All the sugar wax will melt.

Then rinse with clean water.

How to wax yourself with brown sugar wax

It’s essential to follow these steps when waxing yourself at home:

Make sure your skin is oil and moisture-free

  • Before sugaring with the brown sugar wax, ensure your skin is moisture and oil-free.
  • Use several folds of paper towels to soak up sweat or oil on your skin.
  • If you’re waxing your underarms, use powder to soak up moisture.
  • But always use paper towels when waxing your bikini line.
  • Ensuring your skin is moisture or oil-free helps the brown sugar wax stick to the hair.
  • So the wax removes the hair without you needing to reapply it several times.
  • Which means you’d be done with your waxing within minutes.
  • And with less pain.

Make sure your bathroom or bedroom is well-ventilated

  • It’s always best to wax in a well-ventilated room to prevent sweating.
  • Again sweat stops the wax from sticking to the hairs.
  • So if you’re waxing in your room, sit before a fan.
  • Or turn on your air conditioner.
  • The plan is to make sure you’re comfortable and not sweating.
  • And to wax fast and with less pain.

Knead the brown sugar wax.

  • First, remove any rings so the wax doesn’t stick to them, making your life difficult.
  • Then wet your fingertips.
  • Next, scoop a tbsp. of wax and pull it apart with your fingertips.
  • This sugar wax doesn’t need much kneading because brown sugar has candy-like properties.
  • So it gets caramel-ly without much kneading.
  • I think I only kneaded it for about 1 minute, and t was ready for use.

Steps to use the brown sugar wax.

  • Apply the wax in the direction of hair growth, and pull swiftly in the opposite direction.
  • Repeat until you’ve removed all the hairs.
  • Then throw the brown sugar wax hairball in the trash.
  • And follow with a post-waxing skincare.

Post waxing skincare tips.

  • After sugaring with brown sugar wax, clean your skin with a damp washcloth.
  • Then tweeze out any short or light hairs the wax didn’t pick.
  • Next, exfoliate your skin with a thick baking soda and water paste.
  • Leave it on your skin for a few minutes, then rinse it with warm water.
  • Or wipe off with a clean wet washcloth.
  • Then moisturize your skin with a light moisturizer.
  • Avoid wearing clothes that touch your newly waxed skin.
  • Also, if you wax your underarms, please don’t use deodorants for at least one day.
  • And for your bikini area, skip underwear until tomorrow.
  • To avoid chaffing on the skin.
  • But you can take showers.
  • However, you must be gentle on freshly waxed skin.

I waxed my arm with the brown sugar waxing paste

So I waxed my arm after with the DIY brown sugaring wax.

It stuck to the hair and pulled them out clean.

And I waxed my left arm from my elbow to my wrist.

Now I have one hairless arm and one hairy one.

Anyway, I just thought I’d put it out there.

I also did a Brazilian with it.

When doing a Brazilian with this brown sugar wax, I noticed the wax didn’t melt like that.

Maybe because my room was well-ventilated.

But I always wax in an airy room, and most times, the sugar wax melts a lot.

However, the brown sugar wax was intact from the beginning to the end of my waxing session.

And I was done with my Brazilian within 10 to 15 minutes.

I think the homemade brown sugar wax is a new favorite.
