Did you know? In the 1950s Doctors who wanted to alleviate their patients’ arthritis pain first used paraffin wax . Today decades later its benefits are often overlooked as a beauty treatment.

Parafin wax benefits:

This petroleum­based product hydrates and softens skin while coating the skin’s surface. It also increases circulation to the skin and opens pores, which allows the hydrating elements to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. This makes it a good candidate for treating dry skin and moisturizing cuticles. Technicians apply paraffin wax by dipping the hand, foot or limb into the warm wax or brushing it on, allowing the wax to cool before peeling off. After being applied to the body, the wax encases the treated area, trapping heat and relaxing the surrounding tissues. This makes it particularly helpful for treating stiff joints and alleviating pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, bursitis, tendonitis and sore muscles.
