Healthy Beautiful Feet
Professional pedicures play a big part in your overall health.
There is no disputing the fact that feet are very important parts of our anatomy, yet, they are probably the most forgotten and neglected parts.
Just think how small your feet are in comparison to your whole body and body weight. Your feet have to carry your whole body around for the rest of your life.
Even if you give yourself a pedicure on a regular basis, I suggest you go to a pro at least every 4 – 6 weeks to keep your feet in top condition and get some pampering for yourself. There are thousands of nerve endings in the soles of your feet.
Everyone loves to get their feet and legs massaged.
A pedicure consists of disinfecting and soaking the feet, removing polish, cleaning, trimming and filing the nails, removing calluses, a relaxing foot and leg massage, a nail conditioning treatment and polish. A spa pedicure should include an exfoliation treatment and/or a foot mask to complete the treatment and to get ultimate results.
“TREAT YOUR FEET” – invest in some professional pedicure products.
They are designed to bring tired, neglected feet back to life. Experience the feeling of walking on “AIR”.
Cracked heels don’t feel good, can be painful and simply are not pretty.
Check out the Gehwol Extra foot cream. It’s simply one of the best foot creams.
Fungus on toenails or fingernails
Many people have it and are not aware of it. Check your nails. Are they white farther down on your nail plate? Are your toenails dry, brittle, splitting and breaking? Are your toenails yellow or discoloured? If so you may have fungus. Are they lifted off the nail bed.
It means that the nail is detaching itself from the nail plate. It’s actually more common on toenails, but people can also have it on their fingernails.
Fungus on toenails or fingernails can and should be treated.
Your doctor can give you a prescription for it. You have to apply the medication eery day on dry nails. Getting rid of the fungus can take a year or more even with the prescription. We recommend the Gehwol medicated nail and skin oil in addition to the medication. Apply the medication at night on dry nails and apply the medicated nail and skin oil in the morning after your shower when the nails are dry. A drop goes a long way. Massage it into the nails and cuticles and a bit between the nail bed and nail.
How can you take care of the problem? By having a regular pedicure every 4 – 6 weeks and by using proper professional home care products everyday. Don’t cross contaminate by using the same file or nail clipper. If you have fungus file your nails straight across every week and throw the file out after each use.
Clean your nails once a week with alcohol to disinfect them.
Have you been neglecting your feet?
If so, be sure to book an appointment for a spa pedicure today! That goes for men too!
Of course you can give yourself a pedicure at home. It’s just not the same pampering experience, but here’s how to do it.
Soak your feet 10 – 15 minutes in warm water. Add your favorite scented bath product and relax.
Dry your feet, clean out your nails. Cut them straight across with a nail clipper. Dig out a little more on the sides if you have ingrown nails. Push back the cuticles.
Avoid cutting cuticles or calluses.
It is not safe and not recommended by properly trained professionals. It can causes more problems in the end. People with Diabetes have to be especially careful with their feet. I know sometimes the cuticles are so overgrown that you really cannot avoid cutting totally, but don’t cut so much that you start to bleed. Some people have an obsession with that. Cuticles are there to protect the root of the nail. File your nails with a proper nail file.
Remove the calluses with a proper foot file!
Rinse your feet to remove all the dust. Massage your feet with a proper foot cream. That will work wonders for your entire system.
Massage the foot cream into your feet. Give special attention to your heels. Remove the residue of the cream from your toenails with a polish remover. Separate the toes with a toe separator. Apply the nail growth system as a base coat then follow with 2 coats of nail polish. Apply a quick dry top coat at the end. Use a medicated nail & cuticle oil every day.
