Nail & Foot Care

Essential Nail Foot Care

Your nails provide important clues to your overall health and look. Broken, discolored or misshapen nails can indicate nutritional deficiencies, infections or skin conditions. Good nail care keeps your hands and feet looking nice and part of your general program of good health habits. Knowing that your nails look well groomed and polished boosts self-confidence and can make you feel more professional, prettier, and even sexier!

An average person walks anywhere from 7,000 to 11,000 steps per day, which can really add up to a lot of wear and tear on your feet. Our feet also carry around all our weight, and need pampering from time to time.  Here are few benefits of a pedicure.

Relaxation: Most pedicures include a massage for your legs and feet. Treating yourself to a one-hour pedicure can relieve stress and help make you feel refreshed and ready to get back on the dance floor of life.

Enhances Circulation: A foot and leg massage also gets the circulation going which helps release toxins and stimulate blood flow. Drink plenty of water after your massage to flush toxins from your body.

Exfoliation: Scrubbing and exfoliating the skin on your feet and legs help the skin breathe and renew itself. Removing “dead” skin on your feet encourages new cell growth and softer, smoother and attractive feet.

Moisturises Dry Skin: A pedicure includes rich moisturizer, leaving your skin and cuticles feeling clean, refreshed and soft. It also helps prevent blisters and cracks on your heels.

Prevention of Foot Problems: A regular pedicure can help detect early signs of fungal infections, corns and bunions on your feet and help them correct.

Keeps hands and feet smooth and soft

Summer or winters are harsh and last too long. With regular manicures and pedicures during these months you can help to keep your skin and nails smooth and soft despite the exposure to the harsh winter elements. If you don’t take care of your hands and feet, you can experience dry, pigmented, cracked skin that can lead to itchy and sensitivity.  Hands wrinkle faster than rest of the body as skin is thin and environmentally damaged.

Do you think of manicures and pedicures as just an occasional way of pampering yourself? Regular manicures and pedicures actually provide great benefits for your overall health and well being. They also help keep hands& feet looking young.

Here are four benefits of manicures and pedicures:

Increase blood circulation

During any manicure or pedicure, you receive a relaxing massage of the hands and feet. This helps to improve blood circulation and improves mobility for the joints. 

Improve the health of your nails

With regular manicures and pedicures, the chances of your nails developing fungi and other infections are reduced. Our hands, especially, are exposed to a lot of elements and products on a daily basis. It’s a good idea to have a deep cleaning so the dead skin cells on your hands can be removed. That encourages new cell growth, leaving your nails stronger and healthier. 

De-stress

We all know that body massages are a great way to relax and rejuvenate your nerves, but sometimes all it takes to relax is a hand and foot massage. Manicures and pedicures are a great way to relax while improving the look and feel of your hands and feet. If you’re feeling stressed, some of us tend to pick at our cuticles, leaving them dry, cracked and bleeding. Plus, having great looking nails can always help to put a smile on your face, making stress levels decrease.
