7 Sugar Wax Tips for A Perfect Recipe
1 – You can use white or brown sugar for the recipes. I like to use white sugar for mine because I find that the wax gets too dark when I use brown sugar.
2. To prevent burning the sugar set the heat to medium until starts simmering and then to low. (I set mine, in an electric stove, to 4 to begin with and then lower to 2)
3. As soon as the golden brown color (similar to honey) begins to show, remove it from the stove. This can take several minutes, depending on the intensity of the heat.
4. Make sure the container you use to transfer the wax is heat resistant.
5. Allow the mixture to cool and always check the temperature before applying it. In case you burn yourself, pour cold water on the area. You can also rub ice or apply aloe vera gel, cold cucumber, or cold milk.
