Treat your hands with a paraffin wrap

Dry skin bothers us mostly during the winter months. The paraffin wraps, which treat our skin, are offered for example in beauty salons but we can do them quite easily at home as well.

We use paraffin with melting point 52/54 for these purposes. A white medicinal oil is usually added to this type of paraffin, ratio 2 : 1 (paraffin : medicinal oil) .

It is very important to make sure that the temperature of the liquid mixture does not exceed 54 °C even in domestic conditions. We recommend checking it by thermometer or you can even buy a special container with a digital temperature display. If the temperature is higher, a reddening skin may occur.

Once the paraffin get cooler, store it in a dry place.

The procedure can be arbitrarily repeated.
