Paraffin Treatment for the Hands and Feet

02 Dec Posted by in Blog, Skincare | Comments Off on Paraffin Treatment for the Hands and Feet

As the weather is getting cooler, our skin gets drier and rougher in response to the climate change. The skin on the hands and feet seems to be affected the most. If you are looking for a great way to indulge your hands and feet, a paraffin wax treatment is perfect for you. Paraffin wax will make the skin on your hands and feet softer and smoother.

A paraffin wax treatment involves heating melted wax to a certain temperature. Once the wax is ready, the foot or hand is dipped into the wax. After it is  removed, the wax slowly cools and the first layer of wax is finished. The hand or foot is then dipped into the wax again. While the second layer of wax is cooling, gloves or socks will be put on to trap the heat from the wax for a longer time.

Once the wax is peeled off, the skin will be significantly more soft, smooth and moisturized. The treatment is designed to repair cracked skin, soothe dry skin and moisturize the hands and feet. It will also soften rough calluses and make it easier to trim the cuticles.
