Manicure Pedicure

If you are at a salon getting a manicure and pedicure, it can be even more relaxing after a long week at work or school, or if you are getting ready for a wedding, birthday, or mini vacation. But anyway, have you ever gotten so relaxed in that chair that you start thinking about things like maybe where did the art of a manicure begin? Well, if you haven't, I have, and if you read on, I will take you on a journey to the place where this art actually began.


A manicure, which can be done at home or in a nail salon, is primarily a cosmetic beauty procedure for the hands and fingernails. The history of manicures dates back 5,000 years to India, when henna was used as nail polish. Later, the popular practice spread to China, where Cixi, the dowager empress, was renowned for her exquisite, long artificial nails, which she always had well-manicured. This led to the rise in popularity of "fashion nails," which were acrylic and UV gel nails that were popular in the 20th and 21st centuries among women who did not have long nails but still wanted a manicure.

A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment, specifically for the feet and toenails. The history of pedicures originated in ancient Egypt. The carving shown was created by an official of an Egyptian pharaoh that shows representation of people receiving a manicure and pedicure. The word pedicure stems from the Latin word "pes," which means foot, and "cura," which means care. Pedicures are still done today to prevent nail diseases and disorders, as well as to improve posture due to smoothed and relaxed feet.

History demonstrates that manicures and pedicures are a treatment worth trying: not only for a great time of relaxation, but also to keep your feet, hands, and nails healthy! Originating in China in 3000 BC, nail color indicated one's social status, according to a Ming Dynasty Manuscript; royal fingernails were painted black and red! As for the Ancient Egyptians, they have been manicuring and pedicuring since 2300 BC! A drawing of an early manicure and pedicure was found on a Pharo's tomb, and the Egyptians were known for paying special attention to their legs and feet!

TManicure procedure:


Use an acetone pad or some nail wipes to remove old polish from both your hands and your feet. Use an alcohol-free remover as it is believed to be good for nails.


After polishing your nails, trim them to a suitable length for you. Shape them if you want almond or square nails. Wash your hands and feet with water; if you are doing a dry manicure, you may skip this step since you will be applying moisturizer to your hands.


Applying cuticle oil and rubbing for three to five minutes is a good way to take care of your nails. Using a cuticle stick to push backward at an angle will help your nails take on a pleasant shape. Cuticle oil is widely known for strengthening and speeding up nail growth.


After your nails are well clipped, soak them for five to ten minutes in a bath with a teaspoon of epsom salt. This will help to remove dirt and dead skin from your nails and will also help to relax your muscles. If you are getting a dry manicure, this step will be replaced with a lotion or heat treatment to leave your skin feeling silky smooth.


The skin around your nails will become smoother and cleaner once you have done bathing your hands and feet. Use a pumice stone or good foot scrub to remove all the dead skin, polish your heels and knuckles, and eliminate any tanning.


After slathering your nails with body butter or hand and foot lotion, massage the region for ten minutes or more to encourage blood circulation, smooth the skin, and repair the damage caused by the abrasive exfoliation that just took place.


Now for the really exciting part: applying a protective base coat will help to avoid nail discoloration by maintaining the natural sheen of your nails. Allow the coat to cure for three to five minutes.


Once you have completed the above steps, your nails are ready to look amazing! Just relax and let the top coat and nail polish dry naturally. If you want the process to go smoothly, do not rush it. By following these simple steps, you can make gorgeous DIY nails at home without having to spend a lot of money.


Most people enjoy getting a manicure and pedicure because it is a relaxing experience and allows them to choose a new nail lacquer color that matches their mood. However, most are unaware of the many benefits that come with getting regular manicures and pedicures. If you have been treating a mani-pedi as an occasional, indulgent treat, here are some reasons why you might want to incorporate it into your routine

  1. Proper nail care and cleaning during routine manicures and pedicures can help prevent the development of fungal and bacterial infections. Because our hands and feet are exposed to a wide range of objects, we run the risk of acquiring infections in these areas.
  2. Hand and foot massages promote blood flow and circulation in these areas, which in turn allows greater mobility in the joints and less strain in those overworked muscles. This is especially beneficial for people who spend a lot of time typing, writing, and standing. Because our hands and feet carry us through daily tasks nearly constantly, those joints and muscles are exposed to a great deal of strain compared to the rest of our body.
  3. Exfoliation can improve the condition of your nails and skin Deep exfoliation during a manicure and pedicure is as healthy as it is pleasurable. When it comes to your hands and feet, eliminating dead skin cells can make them feel and look better overall, unclog pores, lower your chance of ingrown nails, and smooth out wrinkles and encourage the production of collagen in the skin.
  4. Relaxation helps reduce stress Manicures and pedicures are a terrific way to relax, unwind, and turn off your brain for a little while while you enjoy lovely services. Reducing your stress levels is good for your entire body and is just as vital as getting regular exercise
  5. Better blood flow can help reduce cellulite, increase muscle strength, tighten the skin, and fight the symptoms of aging on your hands and feet. These benefits can make your skin appear younger and healthier.
