Nailing the importance of manicure and pedicure
Good grooming includes well maintained nails on hands and feet but it is not enough just to apply polish.
A qualified professional will help you maintain good health through manicure and pedicure treatment. This includes cleaning and shaping nails and treating cuticles without hurting the skin.
During manicure and pedicure procedure, your hands and feet will be soaked first with warm water and treated with relaxing aromatherapy oils for ten minutes.
As cuticles become soft, they can be chipped to remove dead skin cells and improve circulation and stimulate blood flow.
Manicure and pedicure also involve gentle massage to soothe the skin and remove wrinkles. Apart from enhancing the beauty of hands and feet, the process also helps to make the skin glow.
Benefits of Pedicure
In my practice, I see women and men with ingrown nails and painful sores but with regular pedicure, we can improve the health of the skin and remove the ‘dead skin’ that unnecessarily accumulated at the feet.
The feet endure a cumulative force of several hundred tons and hence healthy feet are vital to the overall health and beauty of every person.
During pedicure, the nails will be cleaned, shaped and trimmed, while the exfoliating and massage elements relieve aching feet and muscles and stimulate blood circulation. Oils and moisturising elements keep the feet well hydrated and prevent dry cracked heels.
Pedicure generally includes application of a toenail polish.
Fungi grow on toe nails when the feet are exposed to excess moisture.
Often, it takes a few weeks for the infection to become noticeable.
However, a professional manicurist will be able to identify a fungal infection even in its early stages and provide appropriate treatment.
It is important that manicure and pedicure equipment are sanitised and/or sterilised to prevent infection and other dangerous elements invading the skin.
Physical and mental health benefits of getting a manicure and pedicure are incredible.
Beautiful nails are an asset and can be obtained by everyone.
