Ladies, after a long 40 hour work week and tireless hours of working a “second shift” at home, wouldn’t it be nice to be pampered. Even though you may think that your joints and muscles in your body take most of the abuse, it’s your feet that are the ones that take the beating. That’s why it’s important once in a while to give your feet that extra special attention.
Many of us know how relaxing a spa pedicure can be, but could a pedicure actually have health benefits? If you think about it, the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps every day. This can accumulate to an average of about 115,000 miles in a lifetime. Whether you give yourself pedicures or visit a salon, properly maintaining and caring for your feet can have a profound effect on your overall well being.

Clipping, filing and cleaning prevents your nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also prevent nail diseases and can prevent odors. Also, when your feet are exfoliated the dead skin cells are sloughed off which prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions and corns. Removal of dead skin cells encourages new cell growth which creates a smoother more appealing foot.
Of course the best and most enjoyable part of getting a pedicure is the massage. The lotions and or oils used in a foot massage moisturize the newly exfoliated skin and massaging promotes circulation in your calves and feet. It can reduce pain in your feet and help to maintain the health and performance of your muscles. Not only will your feet feel relieved and rejuvenated, but you will feel pampered and ready to take on another day.
