PEDICURES AND FEET

Why are pedicures so good for us?
Pedicures are an excellent way to guarantee you look after your feet!
A routine pedicure can assist chiropody especially if you suffer from foot problems. They may prevent you from needing further treatment.
A pedicure can also help your posture helping you to walk more naturally on comfortable feet.
Pedicures can also soothe and relax you when combined with other treatments. Once your pedicurist has massaged several softening and soothing creams into your feet, you will feel all your stresses leave your body and a lovely feeling of relaxation come over you.
What should I expect from a pedicure?
A conventional pedicure starts with a therapeutic foot bath or spa. Your feet will be immersed and bathed in warm, scented water to soften the skin.
Next, comes an exfoliating rub to slough off dead skin with salts or minerals. Your pedicurist will also remove your cuticles and cut and shape your toenails.
Luxury creams and aromatherapy oils are massaged into your feet to refresh and soften your skin. Many pedicurists will also massage your lower legs and maybe give an acupressure or reflexology-based foot massage to help relax you. High-quality toenail polish will be applied at the end of your pedicure. A good pedicure will result in your feet looking and feeling amazing.
A pedicure will usually last between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the techniques involved. Always allow time after your treatment to ease yourself back into standing position.
What are the different types of pedicure?
Pedicures vary depending on the spa and pedicurist, but you can usually find one perfect for you by the description on a spa menu.
French pedicure: a classic which uses long-lasting nail varnish, whitens the tip and squares off your toenails
Intensive paraffin wax pedicure: warm wax is rubbed into your nails, feet, and lower legs to moisturise and soften them
Gel pedicure: clear or coloured gel is bonded to your nails with UV light for a long-lasting glossy finish
Luxury pedicure: a whole-foot treatment usually including massage, softened paraffin wax and heated towels, or a wrap which warms and soothes your feet as well as softening and hydrating your nails.
