Manicures: More Than Just a Relaxing Day at the Salon

April 24, 2018

Everyone loves a relaxing day at the salon, pampering yourself with manicures, pedicures, and facials. With our busy, hectic lives, the time spent on quiet time for yourself can be more valuable than gold. But there are other important benefits of regular, professional manicures that make them important not only for your mind, but for your health as well.

Cleanliness. Our hands face the environment head-on every day. Pollutants in the air, exposure to dirt and grime, and constant washing take a toll on the health of your skin. Professional manicures help revitalize skin by exfoliating away dead skin cells and encouraging regrowth. This helps hands stay young-looking, soft, and smooth and discourages the development of wrinkles.

Regular check-ups. Professional estheticians who work with your hands regularly can spot potential health issues before they become a problem. Issues like chipping, cracking, or ingrown nails can be addressed and corrected before they are an issue if caught in advance.

Resolve infections. If you have a pre-existing fungal issue on your nails, your professional esthetician will use specialize products to resolve the issue. In many cases, you won’t see fungus developing until it becomes a problem, since the environment around your nails is moist and prone to these infections.

Stimulate blood flow. As your professional esthetician massages beneficial products into your skin, your hands benefit through increased blood flow. Better circulation helps the blood deliver oxygen to your extremities, which improves the health of your muscles and skin.

With all these benefits, it’s clear that regular, professional manicures (and pedicures) are a great way to keep your skin and nails healthy and your mind stress-free.
