Paraffin Wax

09 May Posted by in Blog, Skincare | Comments Off on Paraffin Wax

The skin on our hands and feet take a lot of abuse. We use our hands and feet for almost every single thing that we do. It is important that we keep the skin on our hands healthy and soft. Moisturizing our hands and feet regularly is a good way to do this at home. However, when it comes to going to a spa, one great treatment to get the skin on the hands and feet feeling soft and smooth is with a paraffin treatment.

Paraffin wax is a mineral wax that is derived from petroleum. It is a wax that is designed to soften and smooth the skin. During a paraffin treatment, the hands or feet are dipped two or three times into a tub of warm paraffin wax. This thick coating will retain heat for several minutes. When the wax is cooled, it is pulled from the skin. This process not only softens skin and opens the pores but it also removes dead skin cells. Paraffin wax will greatly benefit dry, cracked hands and feet.
