Brown sugar is one of the most common ingredients in the kitchen and finds its use mostly in desserts. However, you can add it to your beauty regime as well.

There are two main ways in which brown sugar can be used to prepare a beauty DIY. The first way is to use it as a scrub since it has a granular structure. The second way is to prepare a waxing ball from it to remove fine facial hair to reveal smoother and fairer skin. Here is how you can use both of these ways:

Sugar Wax

How to:

  1. Take ½ cup of brown sugar in a heavy bottom vessel.
  2. Add 4 tablespoons of lemon juice to it.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  5. Now start heating that mixture.
  6. As soon as the sugar starts bubbling and turns into an amber colour, turn off the heat.
  7. Once the mixture has cooled down but is still warm, wet your hands and collect the wax from the vessel.
  8. It will stick to a ball.
  9. Stretch the ball until it changes into an opaque colour.
  10. Make sure you are careful as the wax ball will be hot.
  11. Place the ball on your face and stretch it in the direction of hair growth to spread it over the fine hair.
  12. Then pull it in the opposite direction of hair growth.
  13. Repeat this to remove the fine hair from the face.
  14. Do this remedy once a month.

How this helps:

Sugar works well on sensitive skin to get rid of the fine facial hair to make the skin smooth and soft. Lemon juice helps in preventing allergies. This method of waxing also gets rid of the dead skin cells on the face and reveals a brighter complexion.
