The seasons are rapidly changing, temperatures are dropping quickly, and these conditions can wreak havoc on our skin, especially our hands and feet. By getting a paraffin wax treatment, you will not only be indulging in a warm treat, but also softening, moisturizing, and rejuvenating dry skin. In addition, the treatment increases blood circulation and relieves aching joints.
A paraffin wax treatment is an add-on service that can be performed as part of your manicure or pedicure. Your nail care specialist will dip your hands or feet into a warm paraffin bath, place a plastic covering over the area being treated, and insulate with a cotton mitten. After some time, the wax is massaged off. Upon completion of your treatment, your hands and feet will have a soothing feeling thanks to the calming oils infused in the wax.
If you experience frequent joint pain or have arthritis, you can definitely benefit from a paraffin treatment. If you suffer from dry skin, impaired circulation or skin irritations, you should consult your physician first. In addition, if you are a senior, you may be more sensitive to the heat of warm paraffin due to various medications or thinning skin; therefore you should seek approval from your physician as well.
So treat yourself today to a relaxing paraffin wax treatment. Your hands, feet, and joints will thank you!
