Written By: Luiza V.The harsh winter is finally coming to a close! With temperatures warming up, we’re ditching the gloves and trading our winter boots for strappy sandals. If you’re out with friends and feeling great, the last thing you’d want is for dry skin to distract from your cute spring outfit. Luckily, paraffin wax is able revive your sad winter skin, and give you the spring glow you’re looking for.We’ve all experienced the drying effect that the cold can have on our skin and are usually more diligent in taking care of it during the winter. However, a lot of people forget that a good skincare routine is equally, if not more important in the spring than it is in the winter. This is where paraffin wax comes in. Whether you’re extremely busy and looking for a one-stop-shop to beautiful skin or simply needing to wind-down with a relaxing spa night at home, paraffin wax has your back (and hands, and feet, and elbows)!What are the Benefits of Paraffin Wax?Moisturizes your SkinBesides looking unpleasant, dry skin can also be extremely itchy or uncomfortable. While everyday moisturizers can help relieve some of this discomfort, the effects only last a short amount of time. Meanwhile, paraffin wax can trap moisture in your skin for days!How does it do this? The heat of the wax opens up your pores. Unclogged pores allow for the moisturizing ingredients in the wax to fully soak into the skin, rather than just sitting on top of it. Paraffin wax is so moisturizing that it is often used to aid in the symptoms of serious skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Please talk to your doctor before using it to treat medical conditions.Gives your Skin a Natural GlowMany lotions that claim to provide “Glowy Skin” are actually just infused with glitter or shimmer that can look artificial and will wear off after washing. With paraffin wax, however, the glow it gives truly comes from within and will last much longer.The real key to achieving a dewy or glowy look is having healthy skin. Developing a sustainable skin care routine using high-quality products, like New Road Beauty, is the quickest and easiest way to enhance not only the look, but overall health of your skin.Softens your SkinIn addition to its moisturizing properties, paraffin wax is also helpful in removing dead skin cells. Our bodies naturally shed dead skin about every month or so, however, sometimes it doesn’t shed completely which can result in stubborn rough patches.Paraffin wax treatments are a great way to remove those pesky dead skin cells that your body isn’t able to naturally shed. This leads to a much softer appearance and feel. It can even help with soothing calluses on hands and feet. Since sandals and open-toed shoes are all the rage for springtime, it’s important to take care of your feet. Paraffin wax can keep them feeling smooth and looking healthy all season long.Relaxes your MusclesSpring weather often results in people getting more active in the outdoors after months of sitting inside. While this is wonderful for your overall health, it can result in temporarily sore muscles. Soreness can not only be extremely uncomfortable but can also prevent you from being active again until it goes away.Many spring activities like hiking, walking and biking can be hard on your feet. If you’re looking for an easy way to relieve sore muscles, paraffin wax is the answer to your question. The heat of the wax helps increase blood flow and relax stiff muscles. This will speed up your healing process, letting you get back to the activity and warm weather of spring!Pain ReliefIn addition to its cosmetic benefits, paraffin wax can also be used as a legitimate form of therapy for those suffering from numerous joint pain and mobility issues. According to healthline.com, it can be used to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel. It’s even used in physical therapy sessions for those recovering from various hand surgeries.Physical therapists will use the heat of the wax to relax and loosen muscles, then have patients peel the wax and squeeze it in their hands to increase mobility. Many patients are quoted saying it’s the reason they’re able to still use their hands today.Why Should I use At-Home Paraffin Wax Treatments?Customize it to Your ScheduleIt is often said that the best times for a wax treatment are first thing in the morning or right before bedtime which means, for many people, salons would be closed. Doing at- home treatments allows you to customize them to perfectly fit your schedule and specific needs.You can Guarantee its CleanlinessThough most salons do have regimented cleaning routines, you can never be truly certain that their products are sanitary. With at-home treatments, you know exactly who has used the products and when they were last cleaned. Using sanitary supplies removes any chance of infection or irritation.It’s Cost-EffectiveAfter the initial cost of purchasing an at-home wax bath warmer, the price of wax averages out to about half of what a treatment costs at the salon. Currently, that cost is reduced even more with New Road Beauty’s Spring 20% Off Sale! All products will be 20% off for a limited time.
