When it comes to how we keep our nails, we all have our preferences. Some prefer the natural look, some have a big occasion and need their nails to match that killer outfit. Others choose to see them as an extension of their personality and like to let their wild side shine through. Whether you have a strict regime when it comes to regular nail treatments, or you see a manicure or pedicure as an occasional treat, there’s no denying there’s something special about walking out the salon with freshly painted talons.
The great news is that there are proven benefits in having regular manicures and pedicures. The Secret Oasis Spa, talks us through the best:
Nail treatments make you feel good
A good manicure / pedicure will do so much more than just make your nails look nice, it will improve your whole wellbeing too. Choose a salon that adds that extra touch of luxury to make you feel pampered and relaxed. Choose a treatment that includes a hand / foot massage to help ease tension away. And don’t forget to pick a colour that makes you smile every time you look at your freshly painted nails.
All our pedicures are conducted in our luxurious spa chairs, that include a back massage feature, so you can sit back and relax whilst you enjoy your treatment.
Manicures and pedicures improve the health of your nails
Unsurprisingly, regular attention to your nails will help them stay healthy. Even the most basic manicures and pedicures will normally include cutting, filing, buffing and preliminary cuticle work, with more in-depth treatments including soaking, cutting, filing, buffing, complete cuticle work, massage and exfoliation.
These procedures may make your hands and nails look great, but they also have health benefits too. Regular treatment will prevent issues such as painful and unsightly hangnails, nail fungal infections and general infections caused by a buildup of dirt or bacteria under the nails. These procedures can help make nails stronger and less prone to breakage too.
Nail treatments can boost circulation
If all the above information wasn’t enough, the work that goes into a professional manicure or pedicure also help to increase circulation. Improving the circulation in your hands and feet can reduce swelling, cold sensations and painful joints.
So, choose a treatment that incorporates a relaxing massage to help boost blood flow.
Manicures and pedicures improve the health of your skin
Unless you are going for a basic nail treatment, you’ll find there are options available such as skin masks, exfoliation, massage and deep moisturising treatments that will help make hands and feet feel soft, hydrated and look years younger. In fact manicures and pedicures can be a particularly effective way to reduce dead skin build up and address dry, cracked skin.
