Beauty Salon Treatments – An Introduction to Pedicures

A pedicure is a soothing and relaxing experience to revive tired and aching feet and to improve the appearance of the feet and toe nails. It is a very similar process to a manicure but obviously for the feet instead. The word pedicure is derived from the Latin word pedis, which means of the foot, and cura, which means care. The best pedicures not only make the toes beautiful, but also include lower leg and foot massages to totally refresh the feet.

Stages of a Pedicure

Firstly any old nail polish will be removed from the toe nails and the nails will be trimmed to the correct length avoiding cutting into the corners of the nail to avoid ingrowing toe nails, they will then be filed to the desired shape.

After this, the feet will be soaked in a large bowl of warm water which may have some oil or moisturizer in it to hydrate the skin. The feet will soak for about 10 minutes which should feel very relaxing and will soften the feet so that any hard or dead skin on the feet can be removed either scrubbed away by exfoliation or by being clipped away.

The feet will then be dried and a generous amount of moisturizer will be applied to the feet and legs which normally involves a lower leg and foot massage to relax and work the moisturizer into the skin. A cuticle cream will also be applied to the toe nails to soften them.

Once this has been done, the cuticles will be pushed back and then polish will be applied to the toe nails in the desired colour or as a French polish.

The feet will end up smooth and moisturised, and the toe nails perfectly shaped and polished.
