Self Care : why you need a manicure/ pedicure

The first thing you should know is that self-care is all about loving yourself. Sometimes we may feel guilty for spending money on getting our nails done, but in reality, we should embrace it and enjoy the experience. It’s okay to indulge a little- especially when it is a form of self-care. It offers a chance for relaxation and renewal of mind, body, and of course hands/feet and nails. Applying colour to nails can also give you mood-boosting benefits and evoke positive feelings associated with specific colours! but that’s not all… here’s a breakdown of 5 benefits of getting a mani-pedi:


  1. Smooth Skin

The first and most evident benefit of getting your nails done is the rejuvenation of your skin. When it comes to our hands and feet, they are constantly being used and as a result are collecting dirt, sweat, and grime on a regular basis. Getting a manicure will help keep your hands and feet soft as well as exfoliate the skin to remove all of the dirt and grime.


2. Prevents Calluses

A nail technician can help you prevent getting calluses as they scrub off the dead skin cells on your feet. So say goodbye to flakey dry feet and hello to feet as smooth as a baby’s feet.

3. Increased Confidence and Self-esteem

Practising self-care is an easy way to increase your self-esteem as you are investing time and money in yourself. After a nail technician has made your fingers and toes soft, given you a fresh coat of polish, and removed any hangnails, you can be sure that in every presentation you do and in every picture you take, people will take notice of your nice nails.

Prevents Infection

Getting a pedicure and manicure can also be an easy  way to spot a fungal infection, especially on the feet. Fungi thrive in dark damp spaces, this is what attracts them to the tissues of the feet. With our feet constantly exposed to moisture, it’s easy to develop fungal infections. Our nail technicians are very familiar with feet and are able to spot infections in their beginning stages before they spread.

Even though getting your nails done may only be for a short amount of time, the benefits last a couple of weeks. Getting a mani-pedi forces you to take a step back, which we often forget to do in our busy lives. Maybe now that you’ll be left feeling your best self you may get the boost you need to try something new and exciting.
