Why foot care is so important?
We tend to forget our feet and seldom stop to pamper them. We expect them to take us everywhere, often in the most unsuitable of footwear, and it’s only if we get a blister or other problem that we even think about what’s happening down at floor level. Regular pedicures are hugely important if you want to ensure your feet are kept in prime condition.
Four reasons why foot care is so important;
Early Detection of Problems
Receiving a regular pedicure can help the pedicurist detect early signs of corns, bunions and fungal infections. These conditions are easier to treat when they are identified in its earlier stages.
Decreases Chances of Infections
Clipping, cutting and cleaning of the toe nails prevents them from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases disorders (fungi) and foot odors. It is also important to keep toenails healthy because they protect toes from trauma.
Preserves Skin’s Moisture
A pedicure includes soaks in warm water and massages with oils and lotions that help preserve the moisture and integrity of your feet. Moisturized feet are less likely to get blisters, cracks or other foot problems. It is also important to keep your cuticles moisturized to prevent nails from growing out with ridges or split ends which can cause the nails to lift out of the nail beds.
Exfoliates the Feet
Exfoliation, or removal of dead skin cells, prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be uncomfortable and painful. The removal of the dead skin on your feet, especially on the heel, encourages new cell growth which creates smoother and more attractive feet.
