Paraffin wax goes hand in hand with holistic therapies and natural healing. It is surprising to know that many people don’t know much if anything about Paraffin wax and it’s healing treatments. Paraffin wax increases circulation, helps open pores, improves skin color, soothes and moisturizes your skin. If you suffer from any of these conditions you should give paraffin wax a try:

Pimple Problems

What can ruin a perfectly good date or just about any day? A pimple. We all hate them and they seem to pop up for no reason at all. But even though you just want them gone ASAP, resist the temptation to squeeze them. Pimples are actually a skin infection caused by many different reasons. When you pop them, because they are a bacterial infection, they cause the bacteria to spill all over the face. This can cause even more pimples to pop up, how dreadful!

More problems that can come from squeezing those pimples are nasty dark spots, red swollen area, and can cause a scar which can lead to large pores. Some things you can do about pimples are to follow a skin care regiment which incorporates an acne ritual into it.  Check out some of these face products in getting your skin back to it’s beautiful and radiant self. Also, add more water into your day. You should be drinking atleast 8, 8oz glasses a day. If you are really unhappy with your skin, give a detox a try. You are sure to see a positive difference in your skin after doing a body detox.

Even though we all, at some point in our lives, get pimples, we don’t have to live with them at all times. If you are really have pimple problems contact your dermatologist about getting help.

Dark Neck Problems

image I recently wrote an article on dark underarms and have been getting feedback from those wanting more information on the conditions that create dark necks as well. As stated in my previous post, it could be a sign of a medical condition known as acanthosis nigricans. Acanthosis can begin at any age with sign, symptom or warning. It is characterized by dark neck, underarms, and groin areas. The dark areas will have a velvety, deeply creased, brown to black coloring. Most of the times those who suffer from this condition are overweight. If it develops in those who are not overweight, you should seek medical attention immediately because it could be a sign of a more serious problem such as tumors in the stomach.

It is believed that Acanthosis Nigricans is an insulin related condition and those with it usually have elevated insulin levels. Too much starches and sugars can further negatively impact this condition by causing insulin resistance. With proper diet and medical guidance, skin improvement can be seen. Many people have this condition and may not even know why or how they got it. So, if you suffer from this, don’t despair. Get to your doctor and learn all the facts and what you can do to help this condition and ensure it won’t get worse.
