You already know that a mani-pedi makes your nails look fantastic. What you may not know is that a professional nail treatment actually has long-term and health benefits as well!
Your hands are more exposed to daily dirt and weather than any part of your body where they accumulate grime easily, as well as constantly create new skin cells and slough off the old. Your feet can collect calluses by standing on them all day.
A professional manicure includes a thorough cleaning and lotions designed to exfoliate your skin. Any grime will be removed, as will the dead skin cells, keeping your hands smooth and reducing any appearance of wrinkles.
A professional pedicure will also exfoliate your skin, as well as remove any callouses on the bottom of your feet.
This not only makes your feet more attractive, it also helps you distribute your weight more evenly across your feet, which can reduce leg and back pain after standing for long periods.
