Breaking News Beauty ~ A Paraffin Dip For Your Hands And Feet is perfect for the winter months when your hands and feet are driest. Paraffin wax may also be used as a therapeutic treatment for sore muscles and arthritis any time of the year. In my beauty salon, we also use paraffin for a facial treatment for dry skin.
The first time you use a paraffin machine, it is best to follow the directions of the manufacturer since each machine is different.
When I am turning on my machine, I always keep the lid on it to make the paraffin wax warm quicker. Once the paraffin has melted It is important to keep the paraffin in a liquid state.
Wash hands and feet with anti bacterial soap. Never contaminate your paraffin container.
I dip each hand by opening up the fingers in order for the warm wax to surround the entire hand. I dip each hand three to four times, going all the way to the bottom of the machine, with a slight pause between dips.
Then I place the hands/ feet into a plastic bag to keep it moist and warm.
Place the hand/ feet into an electric plastic glove and bootie for the feet.If you are doing your hands and feet at the same time do your feet first then your hands.
Leave hands/ feet in the glove/bootie for 15 to 20 minutes.
When removing the paraffin wax, the wax will slide off easily leaving your hands and feet incredibly soft and smooth. Your muscles and joints feel happy.
* As a side note. Using paraffin can get messy. Make sure you put your paraffin on a surface that can be easily cleaned. Never use paraffin on carpet or a wood service. When I use my paraffin, I put in onto a plastic trash bag so when I am finished, if there are any drips I can easily throw away the bag.
This love this machine because of it’s size. It will fit your hands and feet into it perfectly.
If you have any kind of allergies please use this unscented paraffin wax. You can add a few drops of your favorite aroma therapy into the wax when it has liquefied.
It is important to use hand/ feet liners to keep your mitt and booties clean. Dispose after each use.
To give yourself the best treatment, always use these electric hand mitts and booties. I chose these mitt and booties because of the heat adjustments. Put the settings on to the highest heat your hands feel comfortable in and relax for the next 20 minutes.
