If you’re like most people you probably consider a pedicure to be a luxury. In truth, pedicures aren’t just for making your toes look pretty. They actually have some very good health benefits that you may not be aware of. When you combine the knowledge that they are good for your health with the long-lasting ability of a gel pedicure, you can treat yourself without feeling the least bit guilty. Read on to discover some of the benefits of pedicures.
Your feet are overworked and underappreciated. If you work in a profession that requires you to be on your feet much of the day this is especially true for you. All the stress that your feet endure can lead to foot problems and impact your overall health. During your pedicure, the technician will massage your feet which increases circulation and relieves tension to help you relax.
Dry cracked skin is not only painful, but it is a risk for infection. A pedicure provides exfoliation to remove dead dry skin and calluses before they can cause a problem. Consider your pedicure a preventative measure to head off problems down the road. For example, fungal infections are far less likely to happen if your nails are kept clean and neatly trimmed and your skin is kept healthy.
We know how pedicures can keep feet healthy, but what else can they do? Indulging in self-care such as pedicures helps to relieve tension and stress. The process releases endorphins, “feel-good” chemicals, that make you feel relaxed, calm, and happy. This increase in endorphins has even been shown to lower blood pressure, so it benefits both the body and the mind.
