In this case, the hair should be covered with a scarf, the neck with a napkin, and the eyes with a wet swab dipped in a solution of boric acid. Paraffin is applied in 2-3 layers. A layer of cotton wool with holes for breathing (mouth, nostrils) is placed on top.
Over the cotton wool is a towel. A paraffin mask is applied for 15-20 minutes. After removing it, face cleaning is done. When applying a paraffin mask to dry skin, the face must first be wiped with refined vegetable oil, and after the procedure is completed, apply a nourishing cream. Paraffin masks are done 2 times a week or every other day. A full course can include up to 20 masks.
