By the end of every year, I redeem my loyalty card points at The Nail Spa where you can find all kind of treatments: refreshing, relaxing, moisturizing… You name it, they have it! This year, I went for the very well known Paraffin Therapy treatment for my hands and feet followed by a manicure. What’s a trip to The Nail Spa without getting your nails done?
Before introducing Paraffin, let me just say that they have the best service on earth! I’ve tried different nail salons in Dubai and Beirut, The Nail Spa is by far the winner. It is really “perfection at your fingertips”, as they would say it.
Back to the Paraffin Therapy! It’s basically a soothing and revitalizing treatment for hands and feet.
A few days ago, my friend told me that this treatment would cause nail breakage. Of course, I ignored her. I just wanted to get pampered :p
Step 1: They start my scrubing your feet and your hands until they reach the elbow.
Step 2: They apply oil (wasn’t curious enough to ask what kind of oil it was) to your hands and feet.
Step 3: They place the areas covered in oil in plastic bag filled with hot wax that includes essential oils for the skin.
Step 4: They let it set for a few minutes in some sort of glove. I obviously couldn’t take a picture of my hands. But let me just tell you, I felt like the Teletubbies for a moment there (no fingers!)
Step 5: After that the wax is set. They slide out the “glove” and remove the remaining wax stuck between your fingers and nails.
Step 6: *TheBestPart!* They finish off by moisturizing the area with a little massage.
Of course, I had a little manicure done right after the treatment. But that will be another post 😉
