Benefits for Skin Health – Manicure Ottawa
The skin of your hands is more exposed to environmental toxins, dirt, and weather damage than any other part of your body, with the exception of your face (and that’s debatable). During sandal season, the same applies to your feet. Not only that, but your feet must deal with the daily work caused by walking and wearing shoes and socks all day long.
During a professional manicure Ottawa and pedicure Ottawa, we will use a variety of cleansing techniques and products to help exfoliate your skin, removing any dirt from under the nail, as well as any dead skin cells. This helps to keep your hands and feet feeling soft and smooth. A manicure Ottawa helps hydrate and moisturize your hands, while a professional pedicure helps to remove any hard, rough callouses that may have developed on your feet. Removing these callouses helps you stand and walk with your weight spread more evenly across all areas of your feet, reducing back and leg pain during long periods of standing. This is particularly helpful if you regularly wear high-heeled shoes, which can cause calluses to develop on your heels and the bottom of your feet.
Better Circulation – Pedicure Ottawa
During your manicure Ottawa and pedicure Ottawa, at Esthetics by Gilla, we use a variety of special lotions and moisturizers on your hands and feet while you’re enjoying your foot massage with some reflexology. This isn’t something that you can receive doing a manicure Ottawa or a pedicure at home ; Not only does this mini-massage help to relax the muscles in your hands and feet, relieving any pain and tension in these areas, it also helps to increase the blood flow to these areas. If you find that your hands and feet are usually cold and uncomfortable during the winter months, getting a professional manicure Ottawa or pedicure can help. Many clients state that the improved circulation can last for days following the massage.
When you visit us for a manicure Ottawa or pedicure, we can identify health issues in your skin and nails in the earliest stages, when it’s still easily treated. Getting a pedicure regularly can help to keep your toes and toenails healthy, as this is an area that many people forget or ignore. Getting a manicure Ottawa and having your nails properly shaped and your cuticles stimulated regularly can help to prevent chipping, cracking, and annoying (not to mention painful) hangnails from occurring.
Treating yourself to a manicure Ottawa or pedicure is an excellent act of self-care. Most people find the process to be quite relaxing, and they feel particularly pampered afterwards having this experience at our facility actually. The feel-good chemicals that are released during a manicure/pedicure can help to fight feelings of depression.
Having beautiful nails can also help to elevate your feelings of confidence and self-esteem. Manicures shouldn’t be reserved just for special occasions – we believe that all of our clients deserve to look and feel their absolute best every day. Getting a manicure or pedicure doesn’t take long, and can be an excellent and inexpensive way to help yourself feel more relaxed and confident.
