Pedicures don’t have to be a rare luxury. They actually have valuable health benefits. At Salon D’Artiste, we think of pedicures as a health service, not just a pampering treat. Think of pedicures as something you’re doing to maintain your health. You don’t have to feel guilty about treating yourself. Keep reading to discover the many benefits of pedicures.

If you’re very physically active, or if you work in a physically demanding job, your feet absorb a lot of stress. They are probably your most strained, overworked body parts. All of that stress takes a toll on your overall health. During your pedicure service, your technician will massage your feet. Those massages reduce soreness, improve circulation, and release tension in your foot muscles. Your feet will thank you for the extra attention.

Exfoliation is not just for your face! Your pedicure technician will exfoliate your feet as part of your service. You can say goodbye to dead skin and calluses. Aside from leaving you with smooth feet, your pedicure doubles as a preventative service. Things like fungal infections are much less likely if you take good care of your feet. You’ll be glad you invested in that pedicure because it prevents more foot-related troubles down the road.

Pedicures are obviously great for your feet, but did you know they help your mind too? When you get a pedicure, you release tension and feel relaxed. This kind of de-stressing releases a brain chemical called endorphins. Endorphins make you feel calm and happy, They also lower blood pressure, improve circulation and even relieve pain. So you shouldn’t feel bad about splurging. You’re actually doing your body a favor and giving your mind a rest.
