Paraffin has an excellent effect, which is created by the action of heat and mechanical action. When applied to the skin, the molten paraffin hardens and forms a film, the temperature of which rapidly decreases to body temperature. Between the skin and the film, a thin gas layer forms, protecting the skin from the effects of high paraffin temperature. When the paraffin hardens, heat is released, as a result of which the temperature under the paraffin layer remains constant throughout the procedure.
The effect of occlusion (squeezing) leads to increased activity of sweat and sebaceous glands. The greasy secret liquefies and easily comes to the surface, thus eliminating sebaceous plugs. The skin is released from toxic products of metabolism, tissue respiration improves. This determines the anti-inflammatory and stimulating effect of paraffin.

Before using the mask, the oily skin should be wiped with a cotton swab moistened with a mixture of alcohol and ether, and grease the dry skin with vegetable oil.
