Cosmetically, paraffin wax is often applied to the hands and feet. The wax is a natural emollient, helping make skin supple and soft. When applied to the skin, it adds moisture and continues to boost the moisture levels of the skin after the treatment is complete. It can also help open pores and remove dead skin cells. Besides cosmetic benefits, paraffin treatment can result in therapeutic benefits and has been recommended in the management of arthritis and fibromyalgia. When used in massage, paraffin wax quickly builds up heat resulting in thermo-therapy that relaxes stiff muscles, increases blood flow, and soothes joint pain. Relaxes stiff muscles, increases blood flow, and soothes joints. 5 BENEFITS OF WARM PARAFFIN WAX ON YOUR SORE ACHY HANDS We can be hard on our hands. They are in motion all day. Any soreness and stiffness can have a huge impact on your life. Whether you have stiff aching joints from typing all day, rough and sore fingers from working in the garage or garden, or pain and stiffness from a chronic condition such as arthritis or scleroderma a warm paraffin wax treatment may benefit you. PAIN RELIEF Paraffin wax can help with the aches and pains. One study published by the Arthritis Health Professions Association reported that individuals who soaked their hands in paraffin wax experienced immediate pain relief following the treatment. IMPROVED SKIN ELASTICITY A good paraffin wax soak can improve skin in many ways, even for those with conditions such as scleroderma, or hardening of the skin. A study conducted by Sandqvist, Akesson, and Eklund (2004) found those who soaked in paraffin had softer, more elastic skin than those who did not. IMPROVED STIFFNESS Along with improved elasticity, paraffin can reduce stiffness in the joints. The heat used in warm paraffin soaks can help soothe muscles and improve blood flow making joints and hands feel more relaxed. This can help you get back to enjoying the activities you loved before sore hands got in the way. EXFOLIATING Paraffin is wax, which hardens when cool. When this wax is removed from the skin it takes with it dead skin and dirt leaving the hands smoother. Who doesn't love soft, smooth skin? MOISTURIZING Paraffin is also an emollient, which means it helps make skin soft. The heated wax also helps trap in moisture by opening pores, leaving hands feeling softer, smoother, and better than ever.
