A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet and their nails.
The word pedicure comes from the Latin words “pendis”, which means of the foot, and cura, which means care. A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails however; usually dead skin cells from the soles of feet are removed.
There are many different ways to do a pedicure but you may wonder how pedicure is done at USA Nails, the information below may help you to understand more about the pedicure process at our shop.
Step 1: A member of staff will soak your feet for five minutes in warm water mixed with soap, which contains salicylic acid. This will give your feet an aromatic, mineralizing and softening bath in preparation the pedicure.
Step 2: After about five minutes, she takes your right foot out of the water, leaving the left foot in. Clipping the toenails and filing them, repeating the procedure with your left foot.
Step 3: Most people are not adept enough to cut their own cuticles uncertain they won’t cut too deeply and cause infection, so it’s one of the main reasons for people to go to a spa. At USA Nails we use a cuticle remover product; which helps loosen the cuticle so that it easily slides away from the nail.
