Satin Smooth Paraffin Wax Spa
Every woman knows that the first step to fabulous looking hands is a paraffin wax dip. Simply place six pounds of wax into the tub, turn on the unit and in just four hours you’ll be ready to give your hands the benefit of a wax peel. Once the wax has melted, dip your hands, one at a time, into the warm wax, let the wax cool and peel it off. You’ll peel away the rough,dead skin and, when followed by an intense hand moisturizer, have the softest hands of your life.
Exfoliating Hand Cream
Hands need more moisture than a simple body lotion can provide. For truly soft hands, use an exfoliating moisturizer like Philosophy’s ‘time on your hands’ or a kit like Mary Kay’s ‘Satin Hands’ before bed. Double-duty bonus: works great on elbows, knees and feet, too!
