Soft, moisturized hands after a paraffin wax treatment.

Written by: Maja K.

Our hands are the part of the body that are constantly exposed to outside conditions and influences of the environment and weather. No matter if it's summer or winter, whether you are inside or outside, everything we touch we do it with our hands. And today, when we need to keep them clean more than ever, the skin and their condition can show some signs of improper care.

Dry, cracked skin on hands.

Wintertime is especially harsh for the hands. The top of the hands is covered with thinner skin compared to the rest of the body, which makes them more prone to cracking and peeling. This condition is a common situation for those who are not wearing gloves, spend a lot of time in the open, and have their hands unprotected. The cracking and the peeling come because of a lack of hydration and moisture. Moreover, you do not have to stay outside to see that your hands are dry and cracked. Water and different cleaning solutions can also affect the condition and the good look of skin, and sometimes, regular hand creams just might not be enough.

That's why we at New Road Beauty have taken a step further into providing our customers with the best possible hand care. We are happy and excited to present to you the best at-home solution that will leave you with soft, glowing, and healthy skin of your hands - all Paraffin Wax Essentials .

What is Paraffin Wax?

If you haven't heard about paraffin wax, now is the right time to get to know this special and magical composition that has many different benefits for the skin. Paraffin wax is a wax-like solid that comes as a mixture of saturated hydrocarbons that are created by distillation from petroleum. As you might know, paraffin is commonly used in candles, sealing, and waterproofing compounds, but the latest researches have put paraffin as a very beneficial piece for the skincare, cosmetics, and beauty industry. 

Paraffin comes in many different forms. It is a type of mineral oil that is often found in face creams and body lotions. Its use in beauty products extends as a less expensive way to make the skin smoother, softer, and more moisturized.

Why is paraffin wax excellent for the hands?

There are many powerful and know benefits of using paraffin wax for hand treatment. 

The most common and well-known use of paraffin in the beauty industry is at spas and salons for soothing and softening the skin. It is applied on the hands and feet, and sometimes on the wrists and ankles. Since it has a low melting point, it lastly melts into a liquid at a temperature that is not too hot to immerse onto the skin. At this point, it is applied on the hands, or in our case, the hands are dipped into the liquid paraffin wax which results will deeply moisture as well as nourish the nails and cuticles.

These are the most common benefits of using  paraffin wax:

Moisture Relief

Paraffin wax is used in paraffin spa treatments because it acts as an emollient, which helps lock the moisture into the cells of the skin. Once the paraffin is rubbed, peeled, or removed, the rough surface of the skin and the dry cuticles becomes soft and moisturized. The paraffin wax is also a great soothing pre-treatment for a manicure, but with our paraffin wax accessories, it can easily be done at home, too. 

Heat Therapy

Paraffin wax is solid when it is left at room temperature; however, it melts at a temperature from 116 to 147 degrees Farenheit. The heat from the wax helps in temporarily soothing aching joints and increases circulation, which makes the hands look more youthful, which is why it is a regular part of paraffin spa treatments. The heat has a relaxing effect, and calms and relieves stress in the same way a warm bath does. Plus, adding your favorite essential oils like eucalyptus or peppermint to our unscented wax can customize your paraffin experience.

I would do daily chores around the house and very easily pull a muscle or tendon.
