You may notice in your skin that the weather is starting to get a bit cooler and that winter isn’t far off. Our hands and feet tend to get dry and cracked in the colder weather due to indoor heating and lower humidity levels outside. While heaters and dry air dry out our skin, frequent handwashing and hand sanitizers can dry out our skin even more.
That’s why it’s important to take care of our hands and feet with regular manicures and pedicures so that they stay healthy, beautiful, and soft. At Square One Salon, our nail experts know the benefits of mani-pedi’s and want to share some of the top reasons not to skip them as the weather gets colder.
Boosts self-esteem. Your hands are one of the first things people notice about you. Dry skin, jagged nails, and blotched polish can make you feel self-conscious about showing your hands in public. When your nails look nourished, smooth, and have perfect polish, you feel better about not only your hands but your appearance as a whole. At Square One, we have many colors and embellishments to choose from to show off your personality.
Increases hydration. Dry cold air, indoor heating, and frequent handwashing can really dry out your skin to make your hands and feet look dry, cracked, and can even make them painful. Regular mani-pedis can help to replenish moisture in your hands and feet. Hydrated and nourished nails and skin help to give you smooth, soft, healthy, younger-looking skin.
Anti-aging. When your feet and hands are lacking the proper moisture, your skin looks aged its cracked appearance, and the addition of fine lines and wrinkles. Dry hands and feet can actually make you appear older than you are! Professional manicures and pedicures can help to reduce the sign of aging by deeply exfoliating to stimulate collagen and boost elastin production. These two things - collagen and elastin - are essential for skin rejuvenation, skin renewal, and tightening. When you do any of our mani-pedis we offer, you’ll enjoy nourishing serums and professional products to give your skin a renewed look.
Boosts circulation. You may know from our expert massages that circulation is beneficial. This is the same with both pedicures and manicures. Our technicians massage the skin to boost circulation which helps your body to deliver vital nutrients to your hands and feet, eliminates toxins, and improves the elasticity of your skin.
Reduces pain. If you have arthritis or other ailments that cause pain to your joints, a mani-pedi can help lessen the pain in your feet and hands. Between the relaxing soak and expert massaging action, we can relieve tension and reduce swelling to your joints and muscles.
Alleviate stress. When we take the time to pamper ourselves, our stress levels are reduced. Relaxing at the spa for a mani-pedi not only gives you beautiful, polished, healthy nails but also helps clear your mind and unwind from the everyday stresses you experience.
Stop infection. Nail fungus is something no one likes to talk about – but it’s a thing and it happens to the best of us. Most of the time, especially on the nails of our feet, it’s not noticed until it’s become a problem and is irritated and painful. Our nail experts at Square One are trained to notice early signs of nail infection and treat it before it becomes an issue.
