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.
Adding a paraffin wax treatment to manicures and pedicures helps to regularly lock in moisture and protect your nails from the elements.
