Pedicures don’t have to be an occasional luxury. They have valuable health benefits. At Beyond Yourself Beauty & Wellness Clinic, we think of pedicures as a health service, not just a pampering treat. Think of pedicures as something you are doing to maintain the health of your feet. They are after all one of your bodyparts that really work hard and are mostly neglected. You don’t have to feel convicted about treating yourself.
Research has shown that pedicures are not just good for your feet; they have a mental effect too. With this treatment, you release tension and feel calm and collected. This kind of de-stressing and the impact of the physical touch releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins cause you to feel happy, peaceful and content. They also lower blood pressure, improve circulation and relieve pain.
So what is a pedicure exactly? Pedicures are designed to give necessary care for your feet. It is a cosmetic treatment of the heel, foot and toenails which is done for cosmetic as well as therapeutic purposes. They are sought afterthrough the world and is done by both men and women.
What are the benefits of pedicures?
Reducing the risk of infections
When a pedicurist works on your feet, she has to clean, cut and trim nails, which helps reduce the risk of any infections due to toenail ingrowth. Also, it removes dirt and bacteria, curbing foot odour and the growth of fungi.
Help get rid of dead skin cells
Exfoliation is an integral part of a pedicure, which helps you get rid of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother and more attractive. It also helps prevent the cells from accumulating, causing bunions or corns, which can be painful.
Tackles cracks in the heel
Many people suffer from blisters, cracks, and other food problems as their feet are dry and not moisturised. Getting a regular pedicure done helps retain the moisture your feet need.
Helps you de-stress
Soaking your feet in warm water after a long day at work, enables you to relax, and when followed with a pedicure can also help ease tension.
Promotes blood circulation
A foot massage is a vital part of a pedicure that increases blood circulation and relieves tensions in the calves and feet. This action also aids in the release of all the feelgood chemicals in your brain.
