This article is the study of manicures and pedicures. We have examined the process of manicures and pedicures over the years and have come up with an amazing philosophy. Manicures date back to the year 3200 and have evolved immensely. A manicure is the cosmetic treatment of the hands including soaking, pushing back and trimming the cuticles. Followed by that you should massage cuticle oil into the cuticles, perform a wonderful finger, hand and lower arm massage, followed by the proper shaping of the nails to the client's liking. Once this has been completed the client may choose a polish or shellac just to top it off beautifully. Polish was used by Egyptians in ancient Egypt but this was more like a lacquer polish. Modern day nail polish was actually invented in the U.S.A in the 1920's!
The history of pedicures originated in ancient Egypt. The word pedicure is actually a Latin word meaning "pes" which translates to foot and "cura" which means care. A pedicure is the cosmetic treatment of the feet involving the soaking of the feet, pushing back and trimming the cuticles, removing callus from the side of the big toe and the bottom of the toes (if necessary) and cleaning/filing the toenails. A pedicure takes between forty five and ninety minutes depending on the condition of the person's feet. Many people believe that only women obtain pedicures but on the contrary, both men and women enjoy and NEED pedicures in the year 2017!
The reason people usually get a manicure is because they start to notice dry cuticles and dry hands in general. When trying to perform the task of doing a manicure at home, the problem is the implements you are using. You may have gone to the salon a hundred times and watched the esthetician do the manicure over and over but you will never achieve the same look as you get at the salon/spa done by a professional. This is primarily because you cannot purchase professional implements at the drugstore. Professional esthetic contraptions can only be acquired at wholesale suppliers that only distribute to professionals that are licensed. Even that file that looks the same from the drugstore or department store is not the same as what you get from the professional wholesalers and you won't get the same results because of it. (not to mention you haven't been trained proficiently in how to do a proper manicure) THEREFORE, my advice to you would be spend the few bucks it costs to go get a professional manicure rather than spend the money on different expedients that don't work.
The reason people choose to get a pedicure is much the same as the reason they get a manicure only it's even more imperative because you're feet get much worse than your hands do. A pedicure can only be done by a professional esthetician. This is for obvious reasons starting with the fact you CANNOT buy the right devices to properly remove callous or the proper products that help remove unwanted callous and dry skin on the feet and cuticles. I must stress that the drug stores and department stores don't sell professional manicure and pedicure products. For products Colours Mobile Spa loves OPI check out www.footcreamreviews.com

The benefits of a manicure are obvious. When you work with your hands extensively, you will definitely do some damage to your skin and cuticles. A manicure will alleviate these problems, especially when done consistently. A manicure will clean and shape your nails as well as treat your cuticles which is essential in keeping your nails healthy and strong. In the duration of your manicure you will receive an exfoliating hand scrub to remove the dead skin cells. The massage at the end of the manicure is excellent for stimulating blood flow and circulation as well as moisturizing the skin. With regular manicures, the chance of getting ingrown nails or any type of infections is reduced significantly. Nothing looks better than clean, well manicured nails and hands, especially when you're going out of your way to make a good impression!
A pedicure is wonderful because it not only looks fabulous but has some incredible health benefits as well. Pedicures keep the nails cut and shaped, the cuticles trimmed and moisturized, calluses removed and the skin hydrated with professional lotion. The foot massage at the end of the pedicure is the best part especially when reflexology is applied. A properly trained esthetician knows how to do reflexology and will provide you with a magnificent reflexology massage treatment at the end of your pedicure. Reflexology is extremely beneficial for helping circulation and blood flow. Reflexology also boosts nerve function, stimulates the central nervous system, prevents migraines, eliminates toxins, cleans up the urinary tract, speeds recovery after surgery or an injury and helps put you into a very deep state of relaxation! Reflexology can also be done on the hands but is most often practiced on the feet because the feet have more pressure points. Overall, pedicures are one of the most relaxing services to have done at any salon or spa but Colours Mobile Spa in Calgary is among the best!
