Do you think of manicures and pedicures as just an occasional way of pampering yourself? Regular manicures and pedicures actually provide great benefits for your overall health and well being, especially in Maine’s cold and harsh winters. They also help keep hands looking young.
Here are four benefits of manicures and pedicures:
Increase blood circulation
During any manicure or pedicure, you receive a relaxing massage of the hands and feet. This helps to improve blood circulation and improves mobility for the joints.
Improve the health of your nails
With regular manicures and pedicures, the chances of your nails developing fungi and other infections are reduced. Our hands, especially, are exposed to a lot of elements and products on a daily basis. It’s a good idea to have a deep cleaning so the dead skin cells on your hands can be removed. That encourages new cell growth, leaving your nails stronger and healthier.
We all know that body massages are a great way to relax and rejuvenate your nerves, but sometimes all it takes to relax is a hand and foot massage. Manicures and pedicures are a great way to relax while improving the look and feel of your hands and feet. If you’re feeling stressed, some of us tend to pick at our cuticles, leaving them dry, cracked and bleeding. Plus, having great looking nails can always help to put a smile on your face, making stress levels decrease.
Keeps hands and feet smooth and soft
Maine winters are harsh and last too long. With regular manicures and pedicures during these months you can help to keep your skin and nails smooth and soft despite the exposure to the harsh winter elements. If you don’t take care of your hands and feet, you can experience dry, cracked skin that leaves painful sores and potential scars.
