The battle of the sexes may at long last be cooling down–at least when it comes to hygiene. More than ever before, men are finding that taking care of their feet is just as essential as brushing their teeth! Like manicures, pedicures do involve the beautification of a limb. However, they may be infinitely more beneficial. The feet, unlike the hands have the daunting responsibility to carry the entire body. For men, this means hundreds of pounds of pressure are placed on fifty-two tiny bones, day in and out. This pressure combined with the general wear and tear brought on by bad or uncomfortable shoes, dry skin, and sweat causes calluses and corns to form. So what is the cure for these foot ailments? Guys it is as simple as a trip to your local nail salon.
Women have always known pedicures are more than just painting their toe nails. It’s a form of treatment and relaxation. Entering the nail salon you might feel like you have entered “No Man’s Land,” but just remember no one is judging you. In fact, a well groomed men is all the rave in 2014. Take some time to review the different spa packages they have. Always choose the one with callus remover, hot towels, and a massage. The process begins with a comfortable salon chair connected to a tub of bubbling warm water. The water is colored with bath salts for fragrance and treatment of the skin, followed by the removal of dead skin, toe nail clippings, and the removal of corns and calluses. The latter is the most therapeutic part of the process. Using either a credo blade or callus remover, the hard skin of the irritation is removed and then further treated with hydrating lotion.
