Revitalize Rough Skin with a Paraffin Wax Bath
Use the relaxing warmth of a thermal paraffin bath to immediately revitalize the rough, dry skin on hands, elbows and heels. Your hands are submerged in a warm liquid wax. The paraffin wax helps deep-moisturize and condition the skin on your hands, and your nails and cuticles. The wax then hardens slightly on your skin and is removed after a few minutes.
- Be sure you have no cuts or visible patches of sensitive skin. Remove jewelry and roll up long sleeves or pant legs. Wash hands, feet, or elbows thoroughly.
- Dab a bit of wax on the inside of your wrist. It should be very warm, but not uncomfortable. Do not dip your hand/foot/elbow in wax if it's too hot.
- With fingers/toes apart, slowly immerse your hand/foot in wax. Also dip elbows slowly.
- Being sure to maintain the open finger/toe position, immediately pull your hand/foot or elbow out. Wait 3 to 5 seconds until the paraffin loses the wet look, then dip again, repeating the process until 3 to 5 layers have been formed.
- Immerse to the same depth each time, so the lip of the wax "glove" thickens uniformly.
- Wrap hand/foot/elbow in basic household plastic wrap (not included) and relax for 10 to 15 minutes while wax releases heat to soothe and soften your skin.
- When heat subsides, remove plastic wrap and discard.
- Wiggle fingers/toes to loosen the wax and peel off the paraffin starting from the wrist/ankle and pulling downward, like a glove.
- If only one person will be using the bath, put the wax back in the bath for next time. Put the lid on, switch to OFF, and unplug and allow the bath and wax to cool before storing.
