As the cooler weather sets in, we’re starting to enjoy gorgeous colors, warm cider, and fun hayrides for the family. Unfortunately, lower temperatures and dry air also mean stiff joints and dry skin.
What better time to get a paraffin treatment?
Contrary to what some may think, paraffin wax treatments are not just for prettifying hands and feet. They also offer many health benefits.
The wax used in paraffin treatments is a soft type which melts without burning the skin. When the melted wax is applied to the hands and feet, the gentle and even heat increases blood flow and relaxes the muscles. The result is relief from joint stiffness and pain, as well as increased range of motion. This is an effective therapy if you suffer from ailments like arthritis or tendonitis, or if you’ve overworked your hands, leading to soreness and fatigue.
Skin softening and rejuvenation
During the colder months, our skin is prone to drying out and cracking as a result. The most severe conditions end up in chronic swelling and infections. Paraffin treatments can help prevent this by softening the skin and removing dead cells. This eventually increases skin elasticity and facilitates movement in the affected hand.
In addition, the soaking step and oils used during treatment open up the pores and allows moisturizers to work their magic. You’ll leave with soft, touchable and more comfortable skin, even in problem spots like heels and knuckles.
Another, often overlooked, benefit of a paraffin treatment is aromatherapy. Essential oils may be used during a session, adding to the overall relaxing experience.
A paraffin treatment is one of the most affordable ways to treat yourself, as well as help your hands and feet stay healthy this winter.
