Sandalwood has soothing and cooling effect on the skin to a huge extent.

Then, it needs to be applied on those facial parts, from where the hairs need to be removed. The sugar in the molten state imparts the sticky nature and honey and lemon provide soothing action to the skin and act as bleach as well.
