Paraffin Wax Treatment for Hands and Feet
Paraffin wax treatment uses the warmed wax to bathe the hands or feet to create a thick coating that will retain heat for several minutes. As the wax hardens, the paraffin's natural emollient softens the skin and the heat opens pores. When the cooled wax is pulled away from the skin, it removes dead skin cells, leaving the skin smoother. Paraffin wax treatments are also beneficial to dry, cracked hands and feet.
Paraffin is an excellent moisturizer because it forms a light waterproof coating over the skin that helps it retain the oils produced by the body. This "waterproofing" makes paraffin treatments great for soothing and healing dry, cracked skin and offers protection from external elements.
