What are the benefits of getting a Manicure and Pedicure

Besides making your hands and feet look pretty, there are actual benefits to getting a manicure and pedicure on a regular basis.

Skin Care

Your hands are the most commonly exposed to dirt and weather.With that said they get dirty and pick up dirt quickly and easily.  As far as your feet are concerned, they may not be exposed as much as your hands are but walking on them all day can create callouses and other uneven skin conditions.

A professional manicure includes a thorough cleaning and lotions designed to exfoliate your skin.  Which will allow any dirt to be removed, as will dead skin cells, keeping your hands smooth and reducing any appearance of wrinkles.  A professional pedicure will also exfoliate your skin, as well as remove any callouses on the bottom of your feet.  This not only makes your feet more attractive, it also helps you distribute your weight more evenly across your feet, which can reduce leg and back pain after standing for long periods.

Blood Flow

There is typically a massage that comes with both the manicure and pedicure, which is not only relaxing it also helps to improve blood circulation to your hands and feet.  This can help reduce pain.

Fungal Infections

Fungi often grow on toe nails when your feet are exposed to excess moisture. However, a professional manicurist will be able to identify a fungal infection even in its early stages, when it is most easily treated.  Getting regular pedicures is actually a great way to maintain the health of your toes.

Mental Health

A manicure and pedicure is a great way to relax and pamper yourself, after a stressful day or week these can help you relax, and having pretty nails is a bonus that can last for weeks.

So as you can see there are both mental and physical benefits to having a mani/pedi done on a regular basis.

Wow, I had no idea that a pedicure could help prevent fungal infections— that’s pretty nice! I’ve heard that fungal infections can be a pain to get rid, especially when they’ve developed to the point of being visible. In my opinion, it is probably worth it to get those frequent pedicures and manicures. If it can save you a few visits to the podiatrist, then it is definitely worth it!
