Getting your nails done is a fun way to pamper yourself. But did you know it has amazing benefits as well? Having beautifully painted nails is just one of the perks. All the techniques and products used have huge health benefits for your hands and nails. Here are some of the great benefits you get when getting a manicure done at a salon:
Keeps Dry Skin (and Annoying Hangnails) at Bay
Winters can be harsh, especially for those with dry or sensitive skin. When you get a manicure, manicurists pay special attention to making sure your hands are very moisturized. Regularly getting a manicure done can help prevent cracked, dry skin and help maintain soft hands despite the elements. This will also help to prevent painful hangnails, too!
Boosts Blood Circulation
Hot oil, massages, and exfoliation help to improve blood and lymph circulation in your hands and arms. This is great on its own, but can also help with joint mobility, releasing tensions and dimish any pain.
Younger Looking Hands
If you combine the previous two, what do you get? Anti-aging benefits! Getting regular exfoliation, your blood circulating, and a good moisturization can make your hands appear younger. All of these combined can help to reduce cellulite, strengthen and tighten the skin. These will visibly improve the appearance of your hands and help to reduce the signs of aging in the future.
Improves Well Being of Nails
Unfortunately, nail infections and fungus are a thing. But when you receive a manicure on a regular basis, you decrease the chance of getting an infection or fungus! Also, our hands are exposed to a lot of outer elements and products every day. Getting a deep clean from a manicure helps to remove dead skin cells from your nails so they remain healthy and strong.
Not only will you have the option to choose from a wider array of colors than at home, but a professional manicurist will also be painting your nails! That means your polish will look professional and smooth for longer. Also, you’ll be able to get amazing nail art too, which is a smaller (but fun!) benefit.
Life is full of stressors, and we sometimes take them out on our hands. We’ll bite our nails, scratch at or cuticles or pick off our old nail polish. Getting a manicure is a great time to unwind while fixing your hands and nails up! Taking time to treat yourself and get your nails done is essential, especially when life gets crazy.
Who doesn’t love looking at a freshly painted manicure? Having your hands look stylish and fabulous will give you a self-esteem boost. Then you can proudly show your family and friends your fresh, new manicure!
Do we need to say more? Both the physical and mental health benefits of getting a manicure are incredible. So go on and treat yourself and get those benefits from a manicure!
