  • Pot.

Weigh the ingredients by measuring:

  • Water – 1 part;

Keep stirring it.

Cook the caramel until the drop in cold water is the same color.

Now you need to turn off the heat immediately. However, the mass will still darken a little since it is a high temperature and the caramelization process is not finished. To stop it, pour the sugar milk into a cold container. Cool it down. Now it should become plastic and viscous but should not stick to your hands.

It is better to use freshly prepared paste, which has the desired properties. Take a small piece of this product, pull it, and stick it on the selected skin area so that the mass is positioned against the growth of the hair.

Wait a bit, and now you have to pull sharply along the thick edge of this paste already in the direction of hair growth.

To prevent bruises on the skin, do not pull this mass up; you need to remove it with a movement parallel to the skin.

If all the hair from this area has not gone at once, you can use the glue here several times but not more than four.

Use the same piece of glue; throw it away when it doesn’t stick well to the skin. Lubricate this area with cream after you get rid of it. See how you can make this tool with your own hands.
