Here are four benefits of manicures and pedicures:
Increase blood circulation
During any manicure or pedicure, you receive a relaxing massage of the hands and feet. This helps to improve blood circulation and improves mobility of the joints along with reducing swelling of the lower extremities.
Improve the health of your nails
With regular manicures and pedicures, the chances of your nails developing fungi and other infections are reduced. Our hands are exposed to a lot of elements and products on a daily basis. It’s a good idea to have a deep cleaning so the dead skin cells on your hands can be removed, encouraging new cell growth and leaving your nails healthier and stronger.
We all know that body massages are a great way to relax and rejuvenate your muscles and nerves, but research has shown that as little as 5 minutes of a hand and foot massage is all it takes to relieve stress considerably. Manicures and pedicures are a great way to relax while improving the look and feel of your hands and feet. If you’re feeling stressed, some of us tend to pick at our cuticles, leaving them dry, cracked and bleeding. Plus, having great looking nails can always help to put a smile on your face, making stress levels decrease.
Keeps hands and feet smooth and soft

Like anything, there are good and bad sides of choosing a classic manicure. Before you settle on it, you should be sure that it’s right for you. Weighing out the options can either make or break a decision!
For the pros, convenience, and ease of application reign supreme.
A classic manicure is normally easy to apply, with no need for UV lights or setting powders. Polish is applied with a brush, just like your normal at-home job.
This often means that it’s a faster manicure, too, though the drying might take longer.
If you’re worried about a lot of chemicals, or something similar, you don’t have to! The polishes that are used are almost always the same type that you can find in stores.
In fact, many salons will let you bring your own polish! Because of this, you’ll often find that a classic manicure is cheaper overall than other options.
That, however, is not always the case.
Cons? There are a few. The biggest of which is the short lifespan of a classic manicure.
Because it’s only polish on your natural nails, you’re not going to get the same time between manicures as you would for gels or acrylics.
And the difference is substantial: A classic manicure might last a week, while acrylics can last as long as two months!
It’s also easy for a classic manicure to be damaged.
With just polish, any little thing can cause chipping, peeling, or other problems. While the damage is unlikely to hurt your nail itself (something that may happen with acrylics, for example), it will definitely shorten the wearing time.
