Below are 3 benefits of pedicure:

Regular pedicures not only help keep feet looking pretty, they also keep nails trimmed, calluses controlled and skin moisturized. Treat yourself to a salon or spa pedicure or pamper your feet at home. Start by cutting toenails straight across with a toenail clipper then shaping nails with cushion file. Next, refresh feet with a 10 minute foot soak using an large bowl or inflatable pedi bath. Smooth away dry skin and calluses with a sloughing lotion, foot file, salt scrub or pumice stone. For an extra treat, use a moisturizing, softening foot masque to condition the skin. Rinse and dry feet, then massage them with a foot lotion or massage oil. Before polishing nails, remove all traces of oil or lotion with a cotton swab soaked in polish remover. To give your pedicure the perfect finish, use a professional-quality base coat, followed by two coats of top coat. Allow polish to dry completely. Source: SallyBeauty

Massages and warm water you know, just like you’d get in a pedicure to help with joint health, adds cardiologist Dr. James Rippe, editor of American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine. “[With a foot massage] you are putting all of your joints through a full range of motion to help decrease stiffness. Soaking feet in warm water can also help relieve stress on joints and temporarily subside side pain.” In between appointments he recommends Osteo Bi-Flex, a daily supplement that helps strengthens and lubricates joints.

Lymphatic and Blood Flow
Another benefit from foot massage is stimulating blood and lymph flow. Your body has lymph nodes all over which are the tiny factories that help process and clean the toxins from your lymphatic fluid into the blood which then gets taken back through the veins to the heart to get cleaned. Lymph nodes are also known as glands which in our legs are situated behind our knees.  Source: HealthyOptions
