Why Professional Nail Care is So Important

Most people don’t skimp on personal care and hygiene. We take care of ourselves every day, with regular skincare routines, tooth care, bathing, and hair care, but some of us don’t take regular care of our fingernails and toenails. For these people, manicures and pedicures are a luxury for special occasions. But regular nail care is important, and a regular schedule of professional manicures and pedicures is crucial for the health of your hands and feet. Here’s why.

  • Protection from injury. Have you ever thought about the purpose of fingernails and toenails? Most people haven’t. Nails are actually shields that protect your hands and feet from injury. We depend on our hands every day for just about every task, but without nails to protect us, delicate tissues would be at risk, both from physical injury and infection, if it weren’t for those nails. The same goes for toenails, which protect your toes from injury. Regular nail care ensures that both your toenails and fingernails are healthy and strong so they can do their job and protect your precious hands and feet.
  • Skincare. The skin on your hands and feet needs care just as much as the skin on your face, but most people don’t have a regular skin care regimen for these areas. Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing are crucial to keeping your skin healthy, especially on your hands and feet. Professional mani’s and pedi’s on a regular schedule give your hands and feet the skincare they need.
  • Catch problems before they start. Problems like fungal infections can be hard to spot, especially on your feet, until they get bad enough to become a real problem. When a professional esthetician monitors your skin and nails on a regular basis, they can spot these issues and treat them before they become an unsightly or even painful problem.
  • Esthetics. Of course, any discussion about mani’s and pedi’s can’t ignore the obvious – that your hands and feet look great when you get regular, professional nail services. Even if you opt for clear nail polish, healthy, neat, trimmed nails look great and give you that boost of confidence, especially since your hands are always visible to the world.
  • Men need professional nail care, too. For all the above reasons, nail care is also important for men. Manicures and pedicures aren’t just for women. Men can come in for professional nail care and just skip the polish (or opt for clear polish) and just get a nice buff for that natural, healthy look.
