paraffin dip treatment DIY

Are you one who deals with dry, itchy hands during the winter? Sounds like a paraffin treatment is in your near future! Paraffin Dips have become a treatment that not only can be done in a salon but also at home with the help of a paraffin pot. Performing this once a week is said to increase flexibility, circulation and improve skin hydration.

How to Prepare Paraffin Wax Dips: Step-by-Step Guide

Did you know that you can do this treatment in the comfort of your own home? With the right equipment and a few simple steps, you can transform your hands from dry and cracked to soft and supple, while enjoying the warmth of paraffin wax.

Today’s Tues-torial comes from Kayla Sawyer (Student from our Esthetician school in Fort Dodge).

Necessary Steps

Step 1: Start with a clean & dry hand.

Step 2: Next, dip the hand into the paraffin wax. Palm should be flat and the wrist slighting bent. Repeat 3 times.

Step 3: Wrap the hand with plastic.

Step 4: Next wrap the hand with a warm towel and let sit for 10 – 15 minutes.

Step 5: Slowly remove the paraffin and dispose in trash.

Step 6: Choose your favorite lotion. Kayla use CND’s Hand & Body Scentsations Dune Flower Lotion. 

Step 7: Finish with a mini hand massage.

Once finished, your skin will feel smooth plus relief from that annoying itchy & dry sensation. Repeat once per week.

Thanks Kayla for sharing these great tips & participating in this week’s LJIC Tues-torial!

Benefits of Paraffin Dip Treatments

Here are some of the benefits of paraffin wax dips:

  • Moisturizing the skin: paraffin locks in moisture and leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated
  • Reduced stiffness: The heat from the wax can improve range of motion in your hands or feet
  • Stress relief: Wax can also help to relax your muscles and reduce stress
  • Exfoliation: Paraffin wax can help to remove dead skin cells from your hands or feet
  • Improved circulation: The warmth of the wax stimulates blood flow to your hands or feet.
