How does Oriental waxing work?

 
How does Oriental waxing work?

Oriental waxing used to be done with a sugar, water and lemon-based concoction which was made into a caramelesque ball that was rolled onto the area to be waxed. It's now a very hip hair removal technique, and you can find ready-to-use Oriental wax in the shops either in tubs, roll-ons or strips.

The wax is extremely effective on all parts of the body. It removes hairs deep down and also has an exfoliating effect. It promises soft skin for up to 4 weeks.
- It leaves residue on your skin, which is easily removed with water. The real downside is that you need to let the hair grow back to a certain length before you have it done again.

Tips: If you're using ready-prepared wax, warm it and roll it around in a ball in your hands, then spread it over your leg, applying gentle pressure. Start from the knee and smooth down towards your ankle. Remove the wax in one go in the opposite direction to the growth of your hair. If you're using wax from a tub, use the same method as for hot wax and stick to the stated heating times because sugary wax burns just as much as ordinary wax.

Use it on: Legs, armpits and bikini line.
Pain factor: 7/10. We're not going to lie to you: it hurts! But it does give you lovely legs.
