Now holding skin taut with your free hand (I couldn't because I was sugaring my arm) remove strip quickly with one pull in the OPPOSITE direction of hair growth, all the way to the other side. Don't pull strip straight up or remove it slowly.
Keep working in sections until you remove all the hair. You can apply the sugaring gel over the same section (unlike waxing), but I would only do that a couple times. Those with sensitive skin really need to be careful.
You may need to heat the sugaring gel up again in the microwave as it begins to cool down. You'll know when the gel gets thick and it isn't removing as easily from the skin. You probably will only need 15 to 30 seconds to re-heat.
Any missed hairs can be removed with clean tweezers.
Once finished, any excess gel or stickiness will come off skin with soap and water from this homemade hair remover. To calm skin and lessen redness and irritation apply GiGi After Wax Cooling Gel (buy direct)
. Because hands can carry a lot of bacteria, try to avoid touching sugared area the first 24 hours to lessen the amount of irritation and potential pimples.
