Nail Care – Pedicures and Manicures

Pedicures

A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet and their nails. It provides a similar service to a manicure. The word pedicure refers to superficial cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails and comes from the Latin words pedis, which means “of the foot,” and cura, which means “care.” A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails; usually dead skin cells on the bottom of feet are rubbed off using a rough stone called a pumice stone or using a foot rasp. Additionally, the pedicure includes exfoliation, foot mask or paraffin wax and a relaxing leg and foot massage that improves the appearance of the skin and stimulates circulation, helping to remove unwanted toxins from the body.
