Bring Dry, Lifeless Hands Back to Life! - Importance of Skincare for the Hands

One of the most overlooked parts of the body when it comes to skincare is the hands. While we all focus on facial and body skincare, we often neglect the hands. The hands are the one body part that is exposed the most to the sun and harsh climates - almost as much as the face. Skincare of the hands is an important part of the overall health of your skin and you'll want to remember treat them just as you would any other part of the body.

In harsh weather conditions, the skin on the hands can become dry and rough. The winter is starting to slowly disappear and this is a great time to offer hand repair treatments. You can offer them as specials and/or add on services also! It is a good idea to recommend at home night treatments to your clients and offer retail items for that as well. Treatment of the hands should include exfoliation, moisturizing, protection and prevention to maintain healthy skin. Keep in mind that it is super important to exfoliate, as the dead skin cells will prevent any moisture treatments from being more effective.

Add Some Spice to Your Fall Menu - Warm Apple Parafffin



Warm paraffin treatments are a great service to offer this time of year. Anything warming will sound very appealing to your clients during the colder months. Therabath Pro Paraffin treatments will relieve aches and pains and will soften and moisturize the skin from the inside out!

The Warm Apple Spice Paraffin is perfect for your fall/winter spa menu. It is a delectable scent of juicy apples, fresh spices and a hint of pear that I am sure your clients will love! It is also infused with therapeutic essential oils of clove and cinnamon.

How it works:
A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin's heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. Basically, as a liquid, the paraffin is able to retain more heat and when a hand or foot is dipped into it, it turns solid and the heat is delivered straight to the core of the area.

Hand Treatments:

  1. Cleanse hands or use Sanitizing Spray
  2. Apply Intensive Hydrating Cream.
  3. Spread fingers slightly, hold hand flat and slowly immerse hand into paraffin; removing hand immediately.
  4. Wait 5 seconds allowing the parafin "shine" to go away indicating the wax is dry.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make a warm "glove" . Dip 3 times - for light therapy and skin moisturiizing. Dip 5-15 times - intense therapy. The more layers of paraffin, the longer the more heat and length of therapy.
  6. Cover hand with plastic mitt liner bag and plush mitt
  7. After 5-30 minutes, remove mitt, move hands and fingers to loosen paraffin, removing it in liner bag.
  8. Discard used paraffin.


Foot Treatments:

  1. Cleanse feet with Sanitizing Spray. Rub in.
  2. Apply Intensive Hydrating Cream
  3. Slowly immerse foot into paraffin and remove. ( feet are more sensitive to heat than hands – dip only portion of the foot on first dip, and entire foot on subsequent dips)
  4. Wait 5-7 seconds, repeat 3, remove.
  5. Repeat 3-5 times
  6. Cover foot with plastic liner bag and terry boot
  7. After 10 minutes, remove boot, move foot and toes to loosen paraffin and remove it in liner bag
  8. Discard used paraffin


Tips for Best Results:

  • The more layers of paraffin, the easier it is to remove.
  • If the area to be treated has a lot of hair, apply additional layers of paraffin. (Paraffin will not remove hair.)
  • Dip to the same level each time so that an even amount of paraffin covers the area to be treated and there is a thick edge to grasp when removing the paraffin.
  • To build up thicker layers, wait a few seconds (until the shine goes away) in between dips.
  • Don’t flex your fingers or break the “glove” of paraffin in between dips.
  • Keep the paraffin in place for 10 to 15 minutes. (The more layers, the longer the heat lasts, and an insulated mitt or boot will cause the heat to last even longer.) Because you will grow accustomed to the heat, it may seem like the heat is gone before it actually is.
  • Before applying paraffin with a brush, preheat the brush by letting it sit in the Therabath Pro for five minutes

Winter Friendly Manicures!


Dry, cracked skin (especially the hands!) is a common problem around this time of year. The cold weather outside and dry heat from indoors will suck the life out of your clients' hands. A great way to cater to your clients right now is to offer cold weather, winter-friendly manicures!

Hydration treatments and products are perfect for this. Using warming mitts along with the hydration products will help increase the absorption into the nails and nail beds. Nail strengtheners are definitely another great item to incorporate into these manicures because this weather causes nails to become weak and brittle. But, before you even want to think about moisturizing, exfoliation should be your first thought. Exfoliating the hands will help get rid of all the rough, dry skin. Exfoliation along with deep moisturization are the key to these winter manicures.

Don't forget about massage! Massage will help to penetrate the moisturizers deeply into the skin. Also, add-on paraffin treatments are ideal to include with winter manicures, and can help increase your profits as well.

You should also educate your clients on home care in between their appointments. Some ideas include applying cuticle oil every night to prevent cracked skin and cuticles, exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week, and wearing cotton gloves after applying a moisturizer to keep hands insulated.

Great products for your Winter- Friendly Manicures:
