Pedicures And Manicures-Make It A Girls Day Out
Pedicures and manicures are treatments you can get at any salon or spa by their professionally trained staff. The term pedicure comes from the Latin “pedi” meaning foot and “cure” meaning care and the term manicure also from the Latin “mani” meaning hand and “cure” meaning care.
Pedicures and manicures are very similar in that they are done to make the hands and feet look and feel their best. It is just that one is for the feet and the other is for the hands. They help the hands and feet remain free of nail fungus and other nail maladies when done on a regular basis.
Let’s concentrate on pedicures first. A pedicure begins with your feet being soaked in a warm, salt water bath to loosen up the dead skin cells to make the skin of the feet easier to work with. The cuticles are trimmed around the toe nails, the nails are trimmed to an acceptable length and the callouses are filed off of the heels.
The salon professional will also give you a really good foot, ankle, and lower leg massage to increase the blood flow to those areas. Finally the toes are dried, buffed and painted whatever your chosen color is. They usually have a large selection to choose from so do not be shy. Let them paint your nails. You will feel marvelous.
Foot health is very important. Your feet have to work very hard just to carry you around all day and they deserve the very best treatment. You will have less ingrown toe nails, less corns and bunions because of the regular care you give your feet. You feet will thank you, trust me.
Manicures are also another great way to pamper yourself. whether you are male or female, it does not matter. Some men like to have their hands look good, especially if they are in business. They want to make a good impression so they get their nails done. The men just forgo the nail polish.
A manicure usually starts out with the traditional soaking of the hands. Then the cuticles are pushed back and trimmed off, and the nails are trimmed if necessary. The nest part is the best part if you ask me and that is the hand and forearm massage you get. Oh my, you will feel like you have died and gone to heaven. Getting a hand massage is one of the most relaxing things that has ever happened to me and I know you will feel exactly the same when you have one done.
Getting a manicure can be a part of the outfit they have on. If the shade of nail polish they pick matches then they are considered to be all put together. Getting an manicure is a great way to relax and reduce some stress in your life and the hand massage can moisturize and exfoliate the skin of your hands and forearms. You hands will be so soft it will absolutely amaze you. Make it a girl’s day out and take a couple of friends to go get pedicures and manicures.
