WHAT IS THE SPA PEDICURE?
Taking care of your feet is not only a satisfying moment, it also improves your appearance and your health. The spa pedicure that we offer at SOLMAX SANTANDER offers this double benefit, that is, on the one hand it offers a unique moment of disconnection and relaxation. On the other hand, it guarantees the best care and treatment for your feet as well as preventing possible problems with them. However, do you really know what a spa pedicure consists of and how it differs from a normal one? Here we tell you everything.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A SPA PEDICURE?
The pedicure is a therapeutic beauty treatment that improves and maintains the feet and nails in good condition. These incorporate exfoliation to remove dead cells, filing the nails, cleaning the cuticles and applying one or more nail polishes. Likewise, on many occasions, the feet are massaged and apply masks especially suitable for this area.
BENEFITS OF CARE FOR YOUR FEET
In this section, we are going to break down several of the benefits that you will get with a pedicure:
- Increases Blood Flow: This helps remove fluid from the legs and feet and will make them feel less swollen. Similarly, nail filing can promote blood flow and deliver nutrients to the nails, which encourages healthy growth.
- Detect possible problems: Pedicurists have seen a lot of feet, which means they can spot when something doesn't look healthy. They can see the early signs of yeast infections and other problems that you may not have noticed or would not have been able to identify a priori.
- Removes dead skin: This process leaves the extremities soft and smooth, and that's because it removes dead cells. When the foot and heels are removed, the growth of new cells is stimulated. This helps keep them soft and healthy.
- Provides a pleasant feeling of well-being: As this procedure is relaxing, it reduces stress and, therefore, improves your mental health.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A NORMAL PEDICURE?
A spa-like pedicure not only cares for your feet, but seeks to appeal to all your senses. The massage with the spa-like pedicure it is longer than with the normal one and different massage techniques are used. In addition, masks are used that soften and hydrate the feet.
This treatment usually begins with a hot whirlpool bath and is followed by a series of spa services, including exfoliation, hot towel wraps, and massage. Later on, it ends with cutting the cuticles and toenails, as well as filing and polishing.
The ordinary pedicure, for its part, consists of giving shape and color to the nails and the cuticle area, exfoliating the extremities and refreshing them. As you can imagine, it doesn't last as long or as accurate as the previous one.
