It is rare to find someone who doesn’t enjoy the luxury of a relaxing spa pedicure. Having your toes and legs pampered just feels great. But, did you know that having a pedicure has health benefits as well?
There are several health benefits in properly maintaining your feet:
Clipping and cleaning of the nails prevents ingrown nails which can cause pain and even infection.
Removing calluses helps to improve the comfort of your feet. Having calluses on your feet can cause uneven pressure when you walk or stand and lead to aching feet.
Exfoliation prevents the cells from accumulating and causing painful bunions or corns. Removing dead skins cells also encourages newer skin cell growth which creates a smoother, more appealing foot.
Massaging the feet and legs in enjoyable and has many benefits. The lotion and oils used in the massage moisturize the newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. Increased circulation improves agility and maintains strong foot muscles for walking.
A pampering foot massage is also a great way to reduce stress.
