You should never feel guilty about spending a couple of extra bucks on a well-deserved manicure or pedicure. Manicures and pedicures are known for being a great way to pamper yourself. Although, what most people don’t know is that there are many benefits that both manicures and pedicures offer. In addition to relaxation and the occasional massage, there is so much more that these cosmetic services have to offer. Listed below are all the ways that you can benefit from a manicure and pedicure!

A Good Way to Unwind 

A manicure or pedicure is a great way to feel luxurious while also treating yourself to more free time. It is important to have some personal time to yourself, where you get to destress and allow your nail technician to do all of the work for you. You deserve to concentrate on yourself every now and then. Manicures and pedicures are both great ways to feel refreshed!

Moisturized Skin 

Some jobs make it hard for individuals to keep their hands soft and moisturized. Thankfully, this is where a manicure or pedicure can help. If you have cracked skin on your feet or hands, a nail technician can use rejuvenating lotions and serums to help restore the damaged skin. When you get a manicure or pedicure done, you will immediately notice the difference in your skin!

Prevent Infection 

It can be too easy to contract an infection if your nails are bitter or if you take care or if your hands get dirty while on the job. Brittle nails and infections can cause pain and discomfort that can be easily prevented with regular manicures. You can protect your nails and skin from these issues by having a professional treat them accordingly. 

Increase Blood Flow 

When you have a cosmetologist rubbing lotions and serums on your hands and feet, it relaxes you and puts you at ease. But what many may not know is that a relaxing feeling also encourages blood flow. A manicure and pedicure can help increase blood flow from the limbs to the heart. This helps revive the body as a whole. 

Exfoliate Your Skin

Even if you do not deal with cracks or dry hands, your skin could still look dull and lifeless. A manicure or pedicure is a great way to make your skin look youthful. Oftentimes, a cosmetologist will use certain tools such as pumice stones to smooth out calluses and shave off dead skin. You can expect your cosmetologist to finish a manicure or pedicure with a soothing lotion to lock in moisture!

Supports Your Mental Health 

Even something as simple as getting regular manicures done is a great way to support your mental health. Just like your physical health, it is essential to think about how you can treat your mind. While manicures and pedicures seem solely responsible for physical relaxation, this treatment can be especially helpful if you are feeling stressed or anxious. This is because mental health issues can play out in your body. 

Healthier and Stronger Nails 

Healthy and strong nails make the most beautiful nails! At some point in our lives, most of us experience brittle nails. You don’t have to stress about brittle nails because they can easily be treated. Still, they are not the prettiest sight. A manicure is a quick fix if you are struggling with brittle nails. The professionals at Selah Salon & Spa are equipped with materials such as nail strengthening serums to make sure you see improvements in your hands and nails in the near future!

Relaxation with Aromatherapy 

Getting a manicure done is a great way to get some aromatherapy included in your regular wind-down and meditation. If your nail technician does not already offer aromatherapy in their manicure packages, you can always request it as a separate service! The essential oils in aromatherapy are made to promote relaxation. Some popular scents include: 

  • Lavender
  • Eucalyptus 
  • Chamomile
  • Peppermint
  • Sandalwood
  • Bergamot

If you are having a hard time relaxing, aromatherapy could be helpful. 

Massages are Always Included 

The best thing about getting a manicure or pedicure done is that these spa services almost always include massages! Usually, a nail technician will finalize a manicure or pedicure by using some lotion and massaging it into your skin. It is actually recommended to get massages done on different parts of your body to ease and alleviate physical projections of stress.
