If you’ve never had a manicure or pedicure then you really don’t know what you’re missing!
Manicures and pedicures are hand and foot care treatments offered by professional beauty therapists. They are similar in that they both aim to keep the hands and feet looking and feeling their best, but that’s not the full story!
They both begin by the feet or hands being soaked in a warm, salt water bath to loosen up dead skin cells and make the skin easier to work with. The cuticles are trimmed around the nails, then the nails are trimmed to a pleasing length. In the case of a pedicure any hard callouses are also easily filed off of the heels.
A pedicure treatment will also usually involve a good foot, ankle, and lower leg massage, whilst a manicure normally includes a hand and forearm massage. Both are designed to increase the blood flow to those areas.In the final part of the treatment the toes and fingers are dried, buffed and painted to your satisfaction.
The whole process leaves you feeling de-stressed, pampered and special.
Getting a manicure is a great way to relax and reduce some stress in your life and the hand massage can moisturise and exfoliate the skin of your hands and forearms.
