Every one deserves to have clean, and well taken care of feet. The name pedicure comes from the Latin words pedis, which means “of the foot” and cura which means “care.” A pedicure is a great way to relax, and be pampered. It is also a great way to keep your feet looking great, and feeling even better. Pedicures helps prevent many diseases and disorders of the nail, and can help to aid in healing other parts of your body. Here are some of the ways pedicures help your body and why they should be done every month.
Removing Dirt & Bacteria
Soaking your feet in a bath of warm water, and a combination of signature ingredients will help to remove any dirt,and sweat while loosening dead skin cells. It will also help to eliminate foot odors caused by being trapped in damp, warm socks or shoes. The warm water helps to increase blood flow, which will improve circulation to the feet and legs. By improving the circulation, you can help reduce any swelling you may have from walking on your feet all day. This is also the time that your feet will be examined by the professional, to see if there are any nail fungus or injuries that need to be addressed. Be sure to go to a licensed professional, and check out the foot baths. Whirl pool baths, can build up with bacteria and transmit foot fungus, like athletes foot, from person to person. It is best to go to a salon or spa that uses disposable liners. They are always fresh and clean for every client.
Your nails become dry and brittle from cold weather and wearing shoes for hours at a time. Properly cutting and filing the nails will help prevent breaking, splitting, can prevent irregular nail growth, and infections. Taking proper care of your cuticles by pushing them back and trimming hang nails, helps prevent infections on the nail, around the nail, and underneath the nail. If you neglect getting regular pedicures, it can result in infections, injuries, along with brittle nails.
Exfoliating Your Feet
Every pedicure has an exfoliation process. The exfoliation of the the skin removes any excess skin build-up, which helps prevent calluses. The exfoliation will also help to smooth calluses, which allows your body to create new skin growth. Getting your feet exfoliated, helps to allow your weight be distributed more evenly across your feet. This helps reduce leg, foot and back pain that can be from standing or walking for long periods of time, as well as improve balance. It is recommended that athletes, especially runners, have a pedicure a week before a big game or race.
Getting a Foot Massage
The foot and leg massage is one of the best parts of the pedicure. It allows your body to fully relax, while it works out your feet, which is the hardest working area of your body, and can even help promote healing in other parts of your body. The massage will get your blood circulating, which helps you to feel relaxed, increase blood flow to the heart, reduce pain, and help keep your body warm in cold months. Regular pedicures also help increase your bodies overall circulation. The massage goes into muscles and joints to help loosen and relieve tension. The reflexology massage in a pedicure can help to relieve pain in other parts of your body, such as the hips, and back. Your feet will then feel relaxed, fresh and clean.
Monthly pedicures are recommended to keep your feet healthier, which help to create a healthier body, and improve your quality of life. Pedicures help to increase your energy, relieve stress, and can even help improve a persons self-esteem. Stop in and get a pedicure done this month.
