To put you at ease some basics for what to expect when you arrive for a manicure and or pedicure or foot peel:
WHAT EXACTLY IS A PEDICURE?
Per Google, a pedicure is defined as “a cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails.” Much like manicure (for the hands), a pedicure is at face value just a process of making your feet look more aesthetically pleasing.
THE FIRST STEP IS GETTING IN THAT CHAIR.
You’ll get in a chair with shoes and socks removed. Your feet are placed into a warm whirlpool of water to soften your skin.
THE CUTICLE-NAIL CONNECTION.
See that hard-looking skin at the bed of each toenail? Those are your cuticles, and they protect your new toenails as they grow. They must be maintained for many reasons:
- keeps your nails strong.
- allows for your toenail to grow straight. Another, Prevent infection
During a pedicure, your toenails are clipped and cuticles are trimmed, with protective oils added to your nail beds to prevent fungus. This keeps your toenails clean and tear-free.
A Foot peel takes care of this issue without the endless buffing. The peel is applied and left on for a few minutes where after the excess skin is wiped away and the feet are lightly buffed. Depending on whether you’re ticklish this can be the funniest moment of your pedicure, but one thing it won’t be is painful. Just a note to runners: a degree of callusing is necessary on your feet to absorb some of the shock when you run. If calluses grow too thick, they can crack and become infected, but no calluses at all can make for a painful next run. While you’re at your pedicure, just request a slight removing of your calluses.
BONUS: THERE’S A MASSAGE TOO.
Part of the pedicure treatment, is a short foot massage. This is typically done by hand with lotions. Any guys who are big on fitness and legwork will find this to be the best part of the pedicure.
