The Incredible Benefits Of Manicures And Pedicures


Manicures and pedicures in Tucson are often regarded as experiences designed to leave you feeling pretty and pampered. While it’s wonderful that those benefits come with the process, they’re only two of many benefits you’ll experience from your service. In fact, they’re the least important benefits of a manicure or pedicure. They’re merely a bonus on top of many enhancements to your health and wellness.

The General Health Of Your Feet And Hands

Your feet and hands get dirty, even if you wash them frequently. Dirt and dead skin cells get jammed up underneath your nails, and that’s not something soap and water can easily fix. If you’re ever tried to use a pointed metal file to clean out from under your nails, you know that one false move can really hurt. It’s easy to make a mistake when you’re using your nondominant hand to scrape the nails of your dominant hand – your coordination isn’t great, and you’re probably bungling through the process.

Then there’s dead skin, ingrown nails, hangnails, and calluses. If the skin isn’t properly removed, this can cause bleeding. An open wound on your hands and feet would be highly prone to infection. That’s why it’s important to remove calluses, hangnails, and ingrown nails safely. Debris should be carefully removed from underneath the nails to prevent accidental cuts and scrapes.

Your manicurist or pedicurist is properly trained to do that. He or she can keep your feet and hands well maintained and free from germs and hazards for things like infection or nail fungus.

Improved Circulation In Hands And Feet

If you work standing on your feet all day, you know what they feel like at night. You know what they feel like on Saturday morning after a hard week. They’re sore, and maybe even a little swollen. You put them up for a few hours and spend your whole weekend just trying to reset, so you can do it all over again when Monday rolls around.

A pedicure with a massage will help to stimulate circulation in your feet, allowing your body to clear away the fluid and byproducts of your muscle that lead to painful swelling. Tissue stimulation will flush the muscles in your feet full of oxygen and nutrient rich blood, which is exactly what your feet need to repair themselves. The massage will ease strain and help your overused muscles recover. Regular massage can help to manage recurring foot pain.

The same goes for your hands. Do you work with your hands? This includes typing for eight hours a day. Repetitive motions where your hands don’t get a break can lead to soreness and stiffness that starts at the tip of your fingers and ends somewhere around your elbow. A manicure with a massage will provide the same muscular healing power for your hands.

Manicures And Pedicures Offer Skincare Where You Need It Most

If you move around a lot, you’re rough on your feet. You’re probably no stranger to cracked heels and dry skin. Your hands are also constantly being dried out. Washing your hands removes the lipid barrier, the part of your skin designed to lock in moisture. With the barrier gone and your hands nice and clean, they’re constantly getting dried out.

Manicures and pedicures often utilize deep moisturizing treatments. Things like vitamin infused cuticle oils can soften the nailbeds, allowing nails to grow in healthier and preventing peeling skin around the nail. Special soaks and masques help to lock in moisture and much needed nourishment, replenishing everything your skin has lost throughout the week.

Manicures And Pedicures Are Relaxing

How often do you spent time truly relaxing? Not sitting in front of the TV and binge watching your favorite show because you’re too tired to do anything else. Truly relaxing. Centering yourself. Placing yourself in a calm environment with pleasant sights, sounds and smells? Focusing on positive sensations, breathing deeply, and completely clearing your mind?

You probably don’t do that. Most people are often so busy or so tired that they spend their downtime multitasking or distracting themselves. They don’t get the time to unwind that they truly need and deserve. Day spas are designed to provide an all-encompassing experience of selfcare. You truly relax, and you leave looking better and most importantly, feeling better than you did when you came in.
