Your Total Guide to Pedicures For Men

It’s no surprise that a considerably higher percentage of women compared to men visit their local salon or medical spa to treat themselves to a manicure and pedicure. However, these treatments offer some amazing health benefits that both men and women can enjoy.

Contrary to popular opinion, pedicures aren’t just about indulgence or getting a splash of colour on your toenails — they are also about achieving and maintaining healthy feet, which is critical for both men and women. Pedicures for men are becoming increasingly popular because they offer numerous benefits, including: 

  • Healthier nails 
  • Improved blood circulation 
  • Enhanced mood and stress reduction 
  • Elimination of dead skin and calluses
  • Lower risk of developing fungal or bacterial infections 
  • Better smelling feet 

Improved Athletic Performance. Not only can pedicures improve your feet from an aesthetic point of view, but regular treatments may also improve your athletic performance. If regular exercise is part of your weekly routine, then you may want to consider opting for monthly pedicures.

Pedicures for Men: What to Expect From the Appointment 

When was the last time you thoroughly cleaned the area beneath your toenails? When did you scrub the bottom of your feet to get rid of any dead skin or calluses? While it can be easy for men to overlook the importance of having regular pedicures, you should take into account the hygienic benefits of paying close attention to your feet. 

Have you booked your first pedicure appointment? While every beauty salon or medical spa is different, a pedicure typically happens the same way. Here are some of the steps you can expect from your nail care session: 

1. Soak.
The first step in having a pedicure is allowing your feet to soak in warm water. This will help prime the tough skin on your feet for the next step — exfoliation. Remember, sit back, relax, and enjoy this rejuvenating experience.

2. Exfoliation.
Your pedicurist will exfoliate your feet with the main goal of sloughing off dead skin cells to reveal smoother and healthier-looking skin. This will also help you avoid problems such as calluses and you may notice the alleviation of any aching sensation in your feet.

3. File and shape.
Your nail technician will file and shape the nails on your feet. This will get rid of any jagged edges and leave your nails with a smooth, clean edge. In addition to this, you will receive cuticle care that will help protect your nails from bacteria and keep your skin nourished and hydrated.

4. Moisturize.
After your feet are patted dry, your pedicurist will moisturize your feet and calves. This part doubles as a massage, which has additional benefits such as stimulation of your joints and increased blood circulation.

Say Goodbye to Ingrown Toenails and Leg Pain 

One of the most common causes of painful ingrown toenails is improper nail grooming and trimming. With a professional in charge of the nail clippers, you are less likely to have this problem. In addition to this, your pedicurist can give you good advice on what kind of shoes you should wear and how you should take care of your feet at home to prevent this painful condition. 

Do you have leg and back pain? Regular pedicures could help! 

Over time, your feet can develop small calluses from excess friction. A pedicure can remove dead skin and dirt to reveal smoother, softer skin underneath. It will also eliminate any calluses that may be causing your weight to be unevenly distributed, leading to leg and back pain.
