Now that Summer is over, people tend to neglect their feet! Some think that just because they’re not in sandals anymore, they don’t have to have pretty painted toes! Pedicures are much more than esthetically pleasing toes! Let’s look at the top reasons pedicures are good for you… in any season!
Removes calluses on your feet
Calluses are caused by constant friction and pressure on certain areas of your feet. They can develop from continuously wearing high heels or from a pair of shoes that doesn’t fit quite right. A callus appears like a thick skin and often looks unsightly. If left untreated, some calluses may develop into an infection and cause you pain.
Getting a pedicure can help remove calluses on your feet. Before you have it treated, make sure that you do not suffer from certain medical conditions such as diabetes. A foot scrub and moisturizing lotion during your pedicure can help reduce the development of callus on your feet.
Relaxes your feet
A pedicure involves a foot and leg massage to help release tension on your muscles and joints. The massage received during a pedicure is also a great for de stressing and makes your feet feel relaxed leading to what our experts call “happy feet”. It helps with blood flow circulation and can act as a therapy to relieve us from stress and relaxation.
Detects signs of nail diseases
Changing your toenail polish regularly, could help you see if you are developing a toenail fungus. Your nails could be brittle, dull, thickened, or a dark color and you might not even notice if your polish is three months old. Getting a regular pedicure allows you to become more aware of the normal condition of your toenails helping to prevent nail disease.
Our nail technicians recommend getting a pedicure every 4-6 weeks for optimal results. Schedule an appointment today for Happy Feet at 910.484.9922!
