Benefits of manicures and pedicures

Manicures and pedicures often fall into the category of ‘pampering.’ Although it is often very enjoyable to have your nails done there are some good reasons why this should be more than just the occasional luxury experience. There are several benefits to regularly investing in manicures and pedicures and they go much further than just aesthetics.

A manicure or pedicure provides a deep clean for your nails, as well as ensuring that they look great. This is an important part of positive nail health, as both our hands and feet go through a lot daily. Regular manicures and pedicures ensure the removal of dead skill cells, which is an essential part of encouraging new skin cell growth. New skin cells are key for nails that are strong and healthy. Regular manicures and pedicures also help to make sure that your nails do not get into a poor condition, for example being plagued by fungal infections. If you are keen to protect your nail health on an ongoing basis, manicures and pedicures have an important role to play.

The manicure or pedicure involves a massage, to the hands or feet. Massage is a fast and effective way to boost circulation, poor circulation can result in cold or numbness in hands or feet, as well as swelling or joint pain. The effect of the massage is to increase blood flow around the body to improve joint mobility and help to reduce swelling and pain.

Manicures and pedicures are incredibly relaxing. Aside from the blissful effects of the massage, this is also a great way to set aside time that is just for you. Plus, the impact of taking care of your nails, both in terms of aesthetics and contentment, can make you feel good long after you finish the appointment.

These are just some of the benefits of having regular manicures and pedicures – there is a lot more to the experience than just a great finish.
