Benefits that come with a pedicure

Your feet and legs  take a lot of beating and it is therefore important that you take good care of them. A good pedicure is what your feet need to stay strong.

Yes, you can do pedicure at home, but there are benefits of going to a salon for a professional pedicure. They include:

• A professional will take care of your nails and skin and prevent infections from cuticles as a result of over-clipped and ingrown toenails.

Relaxing massage

• In a salon, you are assured of a relaxing massage. To enhance this journey to Eden is the warm footbath and soothing  massage chair. I am sure not many of us keep such gadgets at home.

• The lotion and/or oils used in the massage moisturise the newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. It can reduce foot pain and maintain the health and performance of the muscles.

• A pedicure rids the legs of old dead skin, and ensures the skin is more moisturised using extra rich products.

• A pedicure will also take extra care of the cuticles. Cuticle oil softens the cuticles and creates a neat and tidy perimeter around your nails. When a professional does it, there’s no infection or over trimming.

• Toenails are twice as thick as fingernails and so require strong clippers and shaping with a file best done by a professional.
