Why Regular Pedicures Protect Your Feet and Promote Healthy Soles

September 27 2022

In our lives, we face a lot of battles. These battles can range everywhere from internal, emotional, outward, medical, and anything in between. It is important to combat these problems of course, because giving our lives our all, is all too important. We shouldn’t neglect any of our needs, after all. And keeping our feet healthy, and well groomed is one of those many things we need to consider on the regular. You can do this by setting up routine pedicures for yourself at your local salon or spa. But what exactly are all the benefits of a pedicure? How do they help keep us healthy?

Prevent Ingrown Nails

Everyone knows how annoying ingrown nails can be. Did you know that pedicures are able to help prevent this painful situation? Through proper filing and shaping, you can prevent ingrown nails before they ever begin. When you are giving yourself an at-home pedicure, or even just routinely cutting your nails, you can make sure to prevent your nails from becoming painful and inflamed through shaping techniques. You do not want to cut your nails in the shape of a curve. If the nail has been cut evenly across and kept even with the nail bed, it makes it a lot harder for the nail to grow into the toe. If you are nervous about doing it yourself, or afraid that you will accidentally cut off too much, that is where your pedicurist comes in. 

Reduce Your Calluses 

Calluses can be a very annoying issue, and the more you spend on your feet the more likely you are to develop them. But there is no need to worry, pedicures are able to help with this! Our high-grade products are able to help ensure your skin becomes soft again, moisturizing and reducing the look and feel of rough skin. Preventing calluses can start before pedicures though- you can look at causes from your everyday life. If your shoes are too tight, this can cause friction and tell your skin to develop a protective layer. Daily moisturizing helps skin from becoming rough and uncomfortable, and exfoliation with a pumice stone once a week can also help remove any calluses that may still threaten to form.

Follow It With A Massage

When it comes to pedicures, nothing can really make it more worth it than the accompanying massage. Massages are incredibly beneficial to the body, mind, and treated area. Not only do they reduce stress and promote relaxation, but they also stimulate blood flow to specific areas of the body. Healthy blood flow makes for healthy skin cells and pretty results. You can also benefit from these massages by promoting blood flow to the extremities. These areas are the first to be neglected when the body is cold and wants to preserve heat. Which is great news for anyone who hates cold feet. 

Protective Polish

Did you know that nail polish can serve a practical purpose as well as a stylish one? There are many cases, especially when it comes to people with weaker nails, where nail polish can actually help keep nails strong and sturdy. It creates a moisture barrier between moisture and the nail, meaning that the nail can not absorb water and does not become weak. There are also special polishes infused with vitamins for the nails to absorb. Of course, when you get polish, regardless of the reason, there is absolutely no reason not to make it stylish. We offer a variety of colors for you to choose from, so you can have both benefits of a great polished look. There are some amazing colors and styles trending right now like matte clay-colored nails, and brown to orange gradients. 

If you want amazing, consistent results from your pedicures, you should be sure to come in at least once every two to four weeks, depending on your lifestyle. Those who are more exposed to the elements on a regular basis should consider coming in more frequently- but if you have the time and material to maintain your pedicure, then you should be able to go for about a month without your pedicure needing to be redone.
