Nail grooming is no longer a luxury, but now a necessity. Getting your nails cleaned, trimmed, buffed, scrubbed, and painted may seem like too much of a pampering. But hey, you deserve it! Your hands and feet are among the overworked parts of your body. It’s only right to care for them regularly.
When it comes to nail grooming, you’ve got two choices: a manicure or a pedicure. A manicure service will get your hands relaxed with a massage and your fingernails spoiled with your choice of nail polish. A pedicure service is similar, only designed to care for your toenails. Here’s more about it:
Simply defined, a pedicure is a full treatment for one’s feet and toenails. This service may include a foot spa, massage, and scrub, along with toenail cuticle removal, cutting, shaping, and buffing. There are many ways to provide a pedicure so it’s important for you to choose the right spa or salon to get the best pedicure service. It is best to go to a salon that can do everything, including nail art and nail extension, in case you decide to have them done too.
A pedicure service has several benefits, which is why some people make it a part of their regular therapeutic care rather than treating it as a purely cosmetic service. Going for a pedicure regularly will let you enjoy the following:
A standard pedicure treatment with nail polish will last for 1 - 3 weeks. But that will still depend on what type of pedicure treatment you got and how well you took care of your feet after leaving the salon. Gel pedicures may last between 2 and 4 weeks. You may get another pedicure as soon as the nail polish has chipped or every four to six weeks.
Be sure to care for your toenails after getting a pedicure to maximise the lifespan of the nail polish. Wear flip-flops or open-toed sandals instead of closed shoes when going to the salon to ensure that the polish gets to dry fully.
Each salon may follow its procedures when providing a pedicure service to their clients. A pedicure service may last for anywhere from 30 minutes to a full hour. Generally, here are the things that you should expect from it if you decide to get the full service.
The cost of a pedicure will depend on the services that you would like to include, as well as the type of nail polish you want to use. A regular pedicure service without gel polish may cost between $45 and $55. The one that includes the application of gel polish could go anywhere from $55 to $70.
Salons may charge higher or lower, but it should be commensurate with the level of service that you’re getting. Go to a salon where you feel warm, comfortable, and welcomed. Remember that it should be a place where you can just relax and while your stress away.
Different kinds of pedicures provide you with benefits that match your needs. You’re free to decide which type to get to enjoy maximum pampering for your time and money. Just don’t forget to ask what the entire service includes. Some of your choices are:
Absolutely! There are pedicure treatments specially created for men. It may or may not include the application of a transparent nail polish, which would be solely at the client’s discretion. The service will most likely include a massage and other health-related foot care routines.
Podiatrists recommend that men get pedicures regularly, particularly those who lead a very active lifestyle. Doing so will help maintain the health of their foot, and possibly prevent the occurrence of pain that is associated with ingrown toenails, heel fissures, and calluses.
