A pedicure at a trustworthy salon or spa can be extremely beneficial for the health of your feet, as well as to improve the appearance of your feet. At Alpine Foot Specialists, we work with you to identify any issues with your feet and to fix the problem. Here are some benefits of getting a pedicure.
Getting a regular pedicure can help detect early signs of corns, bunions and fungal infections. Since the pedicurist spends a majority of their day handling feet, they are able to detect any issues. When these issues are detected early, they are much easier to treat.
Decreased Chance of Infection
Proper clipping, cutting and cleaning of your toenails is extremely important for your overall foot health. It keeps the nail from growing inward and causing an ingrown toenail and even another type of infection. Eliminating dirt and bacteria from your feet will help prevent nail disease disorders and foot odor.
Moisture and Exfoliation
Pedicures include a soak, massages with oils and lotions, and exfoliation in order to preserve the moisture and health of your feet. When your feet are moisturized they are less likely to get blisters, cracks or other foot problems. Exfoliation will remove dead skin cells and prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns.
The massage during your pedicure promotes blood circulation and helps relieve tension in your calves and feet. An increase in blood circulation helps distribute heat throughout your body and reduce pain.
Taking care of your skin and hair has been something that has been taught to you, but proper foot care seems to never be brought up. Getting a monthly pedicure can fend off conditions and other infections. If you are suffering from a foot condition visit us at Alpine Foot Specialists today.
