Waxing is an effective way to remove unwanted body hair, but it’s not cheap if you get it done by a professional. And while there are waxing kits available for purchase at drug stores, these too can cost a pretty penny. You don’t have to break the bank just to get a silky-smooth wax job. With just a few ingredients, you can make a sugar wax for hair removal right at home. This ooey-gooey sticky wax will get rid of the hair, and you’ll even have money left over to indulge in a mani/pedi.
