Salons offer a range of body removal treatments but it is possible to use most effective home hair removal treatments with equally good results.

It is a very popular hair removal treatment that is not too harsh on the skin and is quite easy for one to do at home. The method of sugaring that they used is very similar to that used today. A mixture of sugar, water, and lemon juice is heated and then cooled to form a sticky mass. When performing a sugaring hair removal, the sugaring mixture is worked between one’s palms and kneaded to become warmer and soft. It is then applied to the skin and pulled away taking the hair with it. This treatment is popular because it is very easy to do and far less painful than waxing. It only tugs at the hair, unlike waxing that is harsher on the skin. It does not use any cloth strips. The sugar mixture can be made in a larger batch and stored for future use.
Turmeric is a spice that has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that have made it invaluable in traditional medicine.

A paste is formed with the addition of water and it is applied to the skin. When it dries it is removed by rubbing in a circular motion by hand or with a dry cloth. This pulls the hair out. Wash well to remove the yellow turmeric stain on the skin.
