Other than having an incredibly relaxing and re-energizing experience, mani's and pedi's have wonderful health benefits for you, too.  Making these treatments a regular part of your routine will keep you even keeled while looking and feeling your best!

Here are four benefits of manicures and pedicures:

Increase blood circulation

During any manicure or pedicure, you receive a relaxing massage of the hands and feet. This helps to improve blood circulation and improves mobility of the joints along with reducing swelling of the lower extremities.

Improve the health of your nails

With regular manicures and pedicures, the chances of your nails developing fungi and other infections are reduced. Our hands are exposed to a lot of elements and products on a daily basis. It’s a good idea to have a deep cleaning so the dead skin cells on your hands can be removed, encouraging new cell growth and leaving your nails healthier and stronger. 

Stress Relief

We all know that body massages are a great way to relax and rejuvenate your muscles and nerves, but research has shown that as little as 5 minutes of a hand and foot massage is all it takes to relieve stress considerably.  Manicures and pedicures are a great way to relax while improving the look and feel of your hands and feet. If you’re feeling stressed, some of us tend to pick at our cuticles, leaving them dry, cracked and bleeding. Plus, having great looking nails can always help to put a smile on your face, making stress levels decrease. 

Keeps hands and feet smooth and soft

With summer almost here your hands and feet will be prone to sunburn. chlorine, and concrete.  Regular treatments will keep them protected from the harshness of summer.  On the other hand, Chicago winters are harsh and drag on way too long.  Schedule regular manicures and pedicures to help keep your skin and nails smooth and soft as winter goes nowhere for quite some time.
