What is a Pedicure?
A pedicure is love, care and attention for your feet and involves removing dead skin, softening up areas that may have become cracked or hardened and shaping your nails.
If you’re up and about all day, you may have problems with your feet. A regular pedicure can help stop dry skin from becoming hard and even painful. If your feet are uncomfortable, it can mean that your posture is also affected and that can lead to further problems with your joints.
Of course, if you love wearing open-toed sandals then a regular pedicure means that your feet always look fantastic. When carried out by a professional pedicurist, it can also help spot and solve problems before they get worse such as fungal nail infections.
Tips for Happy Feet
There’s a lot you can do yourself but it’s worth paying a bit more attention to your feet regularly. With today’s busy lifestyles, this can be quite difficult. Once you have had your pedicure at Cecily Medi Spa in Marlow these are some tips on keeping you feet in tip top condition until your next appointment.
- The first thing to be on the lookout for is whether the heel area is cracked or seems to be hardening. This is particularly important if you wear open-backed shoes because the heel doesn’t get support and can ‘bulge’ and cause cracking.
- Regularly using something like a pumice stone in the shower or bath can help reduce this from happening.
- One piece of footwear you should try to limit is the flip-flop. These may be comfortable, but they don’t give your feet any support at all which means you can develop problems over time. Keep them for the beach but don’t wear them all day every day.
- Going barefoot is another thing that can, potentially, damage your feet. When you’re on the beach or strolling through a field it can feel fantastic. But it also increases the chance you might pick up a virus or some sort of bacteria.
- Another problem to avoid if you want healthy toes is getting sweaty feet. Give your feet time to breathe and dry them off regularly if you’re wearing socks and boots. Letting a little fresh air in now and again is a good thing. Not doing so can mean that bacteria and fungi thrive in warm, moist conditions.
- Finally, book yourself in for regular pedicures with the expert team at Cecily Medi Spa in Marlow and give your feet the care and attention they deserve, especially after a hard week’s work. Not only will it relax you, but your feet will thank you too.
