There's a lot of women out there who struggle with hairs growing on their chins and upper lips. Here's how to use JBHomemade Sugaring Paste to remove those pesky, stubborn hairs lasting up to 2 weeks.
Hair removal, especially from the face, is a personal process. As the unwanted hair is on the face, women are typically more careful about the type of treatment used compared to removing hair on the legs. Sugaring, used in ancient Egypt, is popular in many parts of the world but has only recently been made popular in Western cultures. Many regard this as a more natural, and therefore safer, approach to facial hair removal.
Facial sugaring comes with a range of short- and long-term benefits and is suited for all skin types and hair textures. Sugar cane's natural alphahydroxy acid (AHA) content makes for a refining and a moisturizing hair-removal method, which is known to improve facial texture and tone. Because you are pulling in the direction of hair growth, sugaring helps eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs and is said to be less painful than traditional waxing and threading. Unlike traditional hot-waxing treatments, sugaring will not burn the skin and can be reapplied to catch missing hairs without irritation. It’s also hypoallergenic and water-soluble, which makes for easy cleanup.

Exclusive - How to use Sugaring Paste to remove underarm hair


This post covers exactly that.

How to use Sugaring Paste to remove underarm hair.

I know no one whats to talk about pit hair.
None of us LIKE pit hair.
Well, that is unless you're a manly man or a die-hard feminist.
But guess what? We ALL have to deal with underarm hair.
I mean, after all - we are mammals after all. But what about those of us who want smooth pits for more than a day (from shaving)?
OK, I'm sure you came here for a reason, so Let's jump right in, shall we?

There are three main reasons for sugaring your armpits.
  • Underarm hair grows pretty fast, so shaving it daily is a must.
    As we all know, daily shaving can cause irritation, ingrowns, etc.
  • If you have thick or dark hair, you can still see the hair follicle through the relatively thin skin in that area regardless or how closely you shave.
  • The hair in your armpits is a huge culprit for body odor.
    Removing the hair by the follicle eliminates odor until the hairs begin to grow back past the surface of the skin. Moisture plus hair is a great place for bacteria to grow.
  • Remember life before puberty?
    You didn't need deodorant then. The hormones of puberty caused hair growth in your armpits. And the subsequent stink thereafter.
Side notes**
  • Sugaring your own armpits can be a little scary but the right technique can make it pretty easy.
  • You will need moderate shoulder flexibility
  • You will need a mirror and cornstarch or powder.
  • Know in which direction your hairs grow on your armpits before hand.
  • Most likely, the hair under your arms grows in two main directions. You probably have have one main horizontal crease. Above that crease grows in one direction and what is below that grows in another. In the middle, there may be a swirly area. You may have to do two pulls over that area.
  • If this is your first time sugaring your armpits, you should not work in sections larger than your pinky finger or tip of the applicator provided.
