The myth that manicures and pedicures are just for women has been shattered, as 49% of spa customers in 2017 were men. New Yorkers are embracing the health benefits of these hand and toe treatments and we couldn’t be more excited for them. Here are five reasons to head to an expert nail technician.
Why Get a Manicure & Pedicure?
1. Impress When You Shake Hands
When you’re meeting a client, first impressions count. A sharp outfit and well-maintained facial hair will always do the trick; however, having dirty, unkempt nails when you shake hands can put you in a bad light. A manicure completes a polished look; while someone may not notice if you care for your nails, they certainly will if you don’t.
2. Prevent Ingrown Nails
Ingrown nails aren’t just distasteful to look at and painful to live with; if left untreated or unrecognized, they can cause serious infections. Having a certified technician inspecting your feet regularly will mean that, if you do have anything concerning, it’ll be spotted early enough for you to seek treatment.
3. Improve Joint Mobility
Most manicures and pedicures include a foot or hand massage. While relaxing, they also encourage blood flow, relieving aching joints. You’ll feel looser, and any knots or kinks will be ironed out even after just a few minutes of joint manipulation.
4. Stop Biting Your Nails
Nail-biting isn’t just an unpleasant habit; it’s also unhygienic, as you harbor germs under your nails. Plus, biting means you’ll be more at risk of finger infections and tooth damage. Having nice-looking nails will help you to stop this habit, preventing an expensive trip to the dentist or hospital.
5. Relieve Stress
Your hands and feet contain many pressure-points that help relieve stress. The massage you receive as part of your treatment isn’t just a nice add-on; it’s a beneficial practice on its own. Even five-minutes will leave you feeling renewed and invigorated, ready to face an afternoon of meetings.
