Paraffin Baths for Hands
Skin refreshing, nourishing and cherishing paraffin baths for hands are perfect for the cold season. They are particularly useful in case of frostbites and hand skin prone to cracking. Hands are dipped in warm paraffin saturated with a variety of useful substances, then they are wrapped in special plastic and gloves. Warm paraffin helps the useful substances to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, smoothes and soothes it. Paraffin bath warms up hand skin and opens the pores in this way improving blood circulation, rejuvenating the skin, softening the horny layer of it, opening the pores so that all active substances could penetrate into the subsurface. The heat makes the skin sweat exerting toxins in this way.
It is claimed that the effect of paraffin therapy last longer than a week.
Physicians recommend them to anyone with blood circulation disorders. They are particularly useful for patients complaining about cold limbs. The baths sooth pains of chronic arthritis, relax tense muscles, improve joint flexibility, relax tired hands, warm up cold hands, and improve blood circulation.
Do not be afraid of burns: paraffin is characteristic of low thermal conductivity, therefore it releases heat little by little. This is an effective procedure for dry, sensitive hand skin tired and damaged as a result of work.
If hand skin is emaciated, one procedure may not be enough – sometimes it needs the whole course.
