Regular manicures are the best way of achieving and maintaining beautifully healthy natural nails. They promote healthy nail growth, improved circulation and a noticeable improvement in the condition of the skin and overall appearance of the hands and nails. Hands, nails and cuticles will be more hydrated and the hand and arm massage can relieve muscle and joint aches and pains. Manicures are very relaxing and can be a great stress reliever.
Nothing makes your feet feel better than a pedicure and if you have never experienced a professional one before now then it is definately time to start! Treat yourself to a pedicure and soak away the stresses of the day. Hard skin build up can be dramatically reduced with regualr pedicures and the foot and leg massage relaxes and releases muscle tension. Blood circulation is stimulated therefore reducing joint aches and pains.
Pedicures are traditionally always thought of as a summer treatment but smooth and moisturised feet feel better and really are a must throughout the year.
If your feet have a significant build up of hard skin or are severely cracked, please be advised that this may require more than one pedicure to get them into tip top shape.
