Few Amazing Benefits of Pampering your Feet with a Soothing Pedicure

by Rajesh Patil Consultant, writer

With summer around the corner, you can finally give a rest to your heavy boots and sweaters and switch over to sandals, shorts, skirts, and dresses. But are your feet ready to come out of hiding?

The average person walks around 10,000 steps a day. That’s a whopping amount of walking! All this can take a toll on your feet if you don’t maintain them properly.

Pedicures are a great way to pamper your feet and refresh them! In fact, the health benefits of a pedicure done through professional home service providers such as Housejoy go beyond the cosmetics. Read on to discover the amazing benefits of getting regular pedicures.

1.    Pedis prevent Infections

When it comes to moisturizing, most women skip the feet and legs. Pedicures are a great way to moisturise your feet.  Proper moisturizer prevents cracks, corns, and other infections from forming on your feet.

2.    Put an End to Calluses

Nothing makes you want to hide your feet in layers of socks like unsightly calluses. A callus is your feet’s natural defence mechanism and occurs in areas of friction. However, this hard skin can break with repeated friction like working out, running, walking, etc. This may even lead to painful foot sores and ulcerations.

With a regular pedicure, you can stop calluses early and prevent them from occurring again.

3.    Relax your Feet

A pedicure involves rhythmic massages to your feet and legs. This helps to relieve accumulated tension on your joints and muscles. Additionally, when you receive a pedicure, you can de-stress, while the expert masseuse works her magic on your feet. This helps you feel refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated after the treatment.

Happy feet do wonders for your overall emotional well-being making you feel positive and cheery.

4.    Healthy Skin

Your feet are one of the most abused organs in your body. From being exposed to dirt, pollution, improper footwear, contaminants, your feet go through a lot. A pedicure involves gentle scrubbing that helps to exfoliate the dead skin cells from your feet. This makes your feet look and feel healthy.

Additionally, when dead cells are removed from your feet regularly, it helps to distribute your body weight across your feet evenly. Also, pedicures help to increase the blood flow to your legs and feet, thereby improving circulation.

5.    Aesthetically Pleasing

Overgrown and dead cuticles make your feet look old and unkempt. During a pedicure, the masseuse doesn’t just paint your toenails with polish. She first gets rid of dry cuticles and ingrown nails, making your feet look pretty and pleasing.

6.    Bid Adieu to Smelly Feet

There’s nothing as embarrassing as smelly feet. The foot bath, oils and lotions applied on your feet during a pedicure not only keep your feet silky smooth but also impart a pleasant fragrance to your feet. One of the main reasons for stinky feet is fungus growth between toenails. With regular pedicures, your feet will no longer harbour bacteria, fungus, and other smelly pathogens.

Contrary to popular belief, pedicures aren’t only for runway models and celebrities. It’s time that you include pedicure in your monthly grooming routine and pamper your tired feet! It’s time to show some care to tired feet with a relaxing pedicure.
