5 Benefits of getting a Manicure Spa Treatment
In a manicure spa treatment, a lot is involved. It’s not just about getting your nails to look pretty. There are techniques and products that take place, like filing and shaping, deep cuticle work, exfoliation, heated mitt masks, paraffin wax, deep hand and arm massage and lastly buffing and nail varnish. Each of these brings huge health benefits to one’s hands and nails. You will notice and feel the difference during the treatment and with a bonus, you get to just close your eyes, listen to calming music and relax. Best of all, you don’t even have to do anything. All you have to do is to choose your own designs and the colours that you want for your nails before you enter the room. After that? Just let the professional do their work, and you’ll come out feeling fresher than a daisy, with pretty nails to boot!
1.Pamper yourself (get some me time in) and stress relief
Everyone needs a break from everyday life, work, and kids. Getting a bit of pampering is a way to escape from reality for a bit, like a pause button to just relax, take a breath and restart. Stress might cause you to pick at your nails or develop unhealthy skin. So if you go for a manicure spa treatment, you can kill two birds with one stone! Make your nails cleaner and healthier while de-stressing with a relaxing massage at the same time. This will prepare your nails for when you start using nail chrome powder in the future. A massage will improve circulation in your blood and relax your muscles, loosening up all that tension from work.
I like to have calm music playing in the background like water falling or dolphins singing. You can keep your eyes shut while your therapist massages your hands and fingers while the rhythm of the music just takes that intense stress away. Some spas also provide aromatherapy, with relaxing floral scents and essential oils. The popular ones like lavender or jasmine can relax the senses. Paired with calm music, a manicure spa treatment will be the highlight of your entire month. Hmmm, sounds so good hey!?
2. Prevent hangnails from popping up!
You know that annoying skin sticking out on the sides of your nails all torn and stuff? Well, there are a few reasons why this happens. It can be because your environment is too dry, which will cause your nails to lose the moisture it needs to be healthy. Or it could be because you keep cutting your cuticles, which will actually damage your nails rather than making them look better. If you have a habit of biting your nails, you will often experience hangnails. And finally, direct injury to the nail, like stubbing your toe or accidentally slamming a door on your fingers can cause damage to your nails.
Getting a manicure treatment regularly will prevent you from getting hangnails, as the products that the therapist uses will help insert moisture into your skin. The deep cleaning that a manicure will give your nails will also remove dead skin cells so that your nails can keep growing healthily. Stronger nails mean you get lower chances of getting fungal or skin infections, so that’s a major plus as well! Plus, they can tell you if shellac nails look good for you!
3. Improves blood circulation
Hot oil, massages, and exfoliation will improve the blood and lymph circulation of your hands and arms, releasing the tension and pain. The heat will help your blood vessels to expand so that oxygen-rich blood can flow more easily through your hands and nails. A massage will do the same, and help the muscles of your hands loosen up if they are tense after repetitive work or stress. This is perfect if you suffer from arthritis and diabetes, both of which affect your blood circulation. If your body doesn’t react well to the cold and moisture and tends to stiffen up or swell when it rains or snows, a spa treatment will be perfect for warming you up. Your body will also be able to handle cold weather after treatment due to better blood circulation. No more freezing hands or cold feet!
4. Improve the appearance of your hands and nails
Manicures will completely clean your nails and skin. The dirt that builds up will be removed, which will make your hands both cleaner and healthier. Your nails will be clipped, cleaned, buffed and polished, without you even having to lift a finger. Exfoliating your nails will improve skin texture and soften your skin tissues. A hand mask treatment will tighten and tone the skin. It is also an anti-ageing agent that helps to make your hands look younger and smoother. Even if you browse wedding nails ideas but your hands and nails aren’t aisle-ready, then it won’t make sense!
5. Reduce the amount of dry skin build up
Did you know that every 7 days you get a new layer of skin? Yep, that’s why you are always left with dead skin. Plus, all the dirt, dust and other pollutants in the air can build up underneath your nails. It may be hard to get rid of all that dirt by yourself, but a professional knows exactly what to do to help. Exfoliating will help remove any dead skin and discolouration on your hands and arms. They can also tell you how to strengthen nails, either through diet or other external means.
Hope this post was helpful to you all and you check yourself into a spa now and then, in fact, they now have Medical Spas! So c’mon, give yourself some slack and get TREATED! You deserve to be pampered once in a while. Not only will you get your nails clean, but they’ll also be prettier and more presentable. Especially if you haven’t had the time to treat your nails yourself. The spa treatment will also have you relaxing and shedding all the tension and stress accumulated after a busy work week. I mean, doesn’t a hot oil treatment and massage sound like the perfect way to end a stressful week?
Oh and just a little tip, apply cuticle oil twice a day to keep your cuticles soft and moisturized. If spas aren’t your kinda thing, and you prefer to pamper yourself, make sure you get one of these beautiful makeup desks that can also be great to do your nails on.
