The Health Benefits of Pedicures
Many people enjoy the luxury of a spa pedicure, did you know that a pedicure actually has health benefits for both men and women?
Your feet take a beating, and if you happen to be carrying extra weight on your frame, your feet get the brunt of it. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles over a lifetime. Comparing in terms of cars, not everyone will drive a car that has 115,000 miles, especially if it hasn’t been properly maintained.
Taking good care of you feet benefits your overall health. Cutting, clipping and cleaning the nails prevents nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases and disorders and helps eliminate foot odor.
Exfoliation, or the sloughing off of dead skin cells, prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be painful. Removal of the dead skins cells also encourages newer skin cell growth which creates a smoother, more appealing foot.
The most enjoyable part of a spa pedicure is the massage. The aromatherapy lotions or oils are used to massage moisturize into newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. This can reduce foot pain from being on one’s feet all day, and can also help maintain the health and performance of the muscles. One of the great health benefits is the the mental health time out for this pampering that can reduce stress.
Whether or not you get nail color or simply have your nails buffed to a healthy glow, the health benefits of pedicures play a big part in proper foot care. Gone are the days when this kind of foot care was only a luxury. Everyone deserves to take good care of their feet.
