Because of their powerful hydrating and softening effects on the skin, paraffin manicures and pedicures are the perfect beauty present to yourself – and anyone else that comes into contact with your fingers and toes.

During the processes, hands and feet are gently dipped into a liquid wax that opens up pores and increases blood circulation and then taken out to dry. The paraffin layer is kept on to seal softness into the skin, and is gently peeled off after a determined amount of time.

After it’s all been said and done, your hands and feet will feel completely new! And remember, my SOC (spa of choice) for the best paraffin mix is New York Nails and Spa.
