You need a pedicure… and yes, that includes men!
Your feet literally carry you through life and yet we neglect to realize how important it is to take proper care of them. Pedicures are a great way to provide basic care for your feet.
What is a pedicure?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment for the feet and toenails that cleans your feet, provides nail care and foot/calve massages. Contrary to popular belief, pedicures are NOT just for women! They are for anyone who wants to take care of their feet.
Despite the belief that they are for those who want to pamper themselves, you should understand that there are many physical benefits to having routine pedicures by a professional.
1. Prevent and Treat Calluses and Corns –Calluses and corns are a yearlong issue. They are hardened, built up layers of flaky dry skin that can hurt and crack if they get too thick, which increases the risk of infection. Regular pedicures will keep corns and calluses at bay and keep feet smooth.
2. Prevents Ingrown Toenails–We often neglect the importance of trimming our toenails properly and let’s face it, it isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially as we age. Cutting nails too short or leaving miniscule pieces at the edges can lead to ingrown toenails which are painful and often lead to infection. A professional pedicure will ensure that your nails are taken care of and are cut to the correct length which will leave you with strong, healthy nails. This is especially important for exercise enthusiast and runners.
3. Removes Foot Odor–No one likes stinky feet! Pedicures are the best way to remove dead skin, dirt and bacteria from the feet completely. The exfoliation you receive during a pedicure will remove the bacterial infection, which you can’t get rid of with daily washing.
4. Increase Your Self Confidence–Routine pedicures make your feet look and feel good whether you are sitting by the fireplace or sporting sandals on the beach.
Regardless of how you feel about pedicures, there are many health benefits to having them on a regular basis throughout the year.
So the next time you look at those feet that have been carrying you throughout your life, why not consider giving them a break?
