What are the Benefits of a Manicure & Pedicure?

Manicures and pedicures offer many benefits, and here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa on Vista avenue in Boise, we can assure you, the benefits are both physical and mental.  People get manicures and pedicures for many different reasons. Not only do they have a cosmetic function but like massage they have both physical and mental benefits. Let’s review some of the benefits of manicures and pedicures:

Benefit #1: Pamper Oneself

Most people get a manicure or pedicure because they want to destress and improve their mental health. It is a nice break from the day, whether a self-help trip or an outing with friends and family. Taking a trip to a nail salon can help your clients pamper themselves a little with a manicure and pedicure. They will enjoy a nice warm soak, drink some tea, and read a good book. Getting a manicure or pedicure is a time-honored tradition that parents pass down to their children and where best friends go to bond.  Our clients at Perpetuity Skin + Spa improve their mental health and well-being with a mani-pedi.

Benefit #2: Body Hygiene

Body hygiene is important for an individual to manage, and a pedicure can help. Many diseases and disorders are common like athlete’s foot, toenail infections, plantar warts, blisters, bunions, corns and callouses. Just before a pedicure is a great time for you to examine the client’s feet and notice any fungal infections or other diseases. At Perpetuity Skin + Spa we help educate clients on proper foot hygiene, so they keep their feet healthy in between appointments.  Pedicures keep the feet clean from dirt and bacteria, as well as odors. A pedicure will also remove calluses from the feet and allow the client to improve posture and properly distribute weight across the entire sole of the foot. Pedicures also help prevent in-grown toenails, and anyone that has seen a pediatrist with an in-grown toenail can attest to the pain of the procedure to remedy them.

Manicures also improve body hygiene by removing dirt and debris from under the nails, pushing back the cuticles, and trimming the nails so they don’t snag or tear. As trained professionals at Perpetuity Skin + Spa, before we begin a manicure or pedicure, it is important to sterilize all nail grooming tools. We will shorten and trim the client’s nails as needed. Then scrub the underside of the nails to remove any dirt or debris. Next, we moisturize their nails and cuticles with sun oil to prevent hangnails, cracking of the skin and nail snags. Finally, we polish the nails and apply a topcoat to strengthen the nails and prevent breaking or splitting. Once the nails are clean and moisturized, deciding nail polish or gems to stylize the nails for even more increased self-confidence!

Benefit #3: Increased Blood Circulation

While the client is getting a manicure or pedicure at Perpetuity Skin + Spa, they are also receiving a massage. This massage can help increase blood circulation from the limbs back to the heart. The blood will get oxygenated and help revive the body as a whole. Poor circulation can cause numbing, pins and needles, swelling, joint pain and cold hands and feet. Massage helps increase blood circulation to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain.

Benefit #4: Skin Care & Moisturizing

A client’s hands are exposed to dirt and harsh weather. The excess oils and dead skin cells can build up causing tone issues, excess grime and cracking of the skin. A manicure and pedicure at Perpetuity Skin + Spa in Boise will exfoliate the skin, remove grime and dead skin, and moisturize the skin back to health.

Benefit #5: Self-Confidence

Nothing is better than a freshly trimmed nail with your favorite color of nail polish. Your clients may where sandals in the winter to show off their pedicure and leave off the gloves to show off the manicure. Looking good can improve a person’s self-confidence, help them meet their personal goals, and walk into the board room with head held high. Looking good allows your clients to feel good, and at Perpetuity Skin + Spa, that is priceless.

Benefit #6:

Style & Fashion - One of the great things about a mani-pedi is the finishing touch. You can work our team at Perpetuity Skin + Spa to pick out the best shade or the perfect gems to create a unique look that is fashion forward. Are they more subtle and enjoy a clear coat? Do they like to make a splash with a beautiful red? How about adding gems to the nails for a stylish and unique look. The possibilities are endless.
