Sokkar: perfect for sensitive and delicate skin, low cost and totally natural 🌿
Sokkar is the Arab waxing with millenary origins (it seems that Cleopatra and her handmaids used it first) but few know it in the West. It allows to obtain an effective and lasting hair removal on the whole body (up to 4 weeks), without irritating the skin.
Making Sokkar wax at home is really simple and you need few commonly used and cheap ingredients:
- 250 g of sugar
- 30 ml of water
- 30 ml of lemon juice
- 2 spoons of honey
🌸 Pour the ingredients into a non-stick saucepan, let them mix with the help of a wooden spoon and melt them until they reach the boiling temperature. For the first 10 minutes of cooking in a water bath it is necessary to mix often to prevent the mixture from thickening too much.
🌸 Lower the heat and leave the mixture on the stove for about 10-15 minutes. When it has taken on a yellow-amber color, turn off the heat and let it cool.
🌸 When it is possible to handle the mixture which is not too hot, it is possible to shape it. A ball must be made to be spread directly on the parts of the body to be depilated. Processing the compound with your fingers is one of the most delicate steps to obtain optimal results.
🌸 At this point it is necessary to tear with decision in the opposite direction to that of the hair growth.
The resulting ball may also not be used immediately. Stored in the fridge, it can be handled and extended again so as to make it ready for depilation.
Once the hair removal is finished, it is preferable to apply a soothing cream based on aloe or olive oil on red skin.
