Why you should have regular salon manicures
A manicure is a cosmetic treatment of the hands and nails. Manicures can either be performed at home or in a nail salon. The procedure normally involves filing, hand massage, shaping of the nails and application of nail polish, Shellac, Minx or other treatments.
A manicure is not a complicated procedure and while it can be performed at home by use of homemade or improvised manicure sets without paying a nail technician, of course this does not guarantee success and it’s why it is advisable to have a professional manicure in a nail salon.
This treatment is beneficial in several ways. First of all it improves the health and texture of your fingernails and hands. Your hands become softer and pleasant to touch and get protected from fungus or any other type of infection.
This treatment also improves the health of the skin. This is because massaging the hands increases blood circulation which ensures that the skin is well nourished. This in turn prevents the skin on your hands from wrinkling, therefore ensuring that you have beautiful and flawless hands.
Other benefits include prevention of hang nail formation, treatment of sore or broken skin around the nails, prevention of nail damages and reducing stress. All these benefits are guaranteed if the manicure is done professionally.
Professional manicures are performed using special manicure sets. Some of the tools in the set include nail polish remover, finger brush, emery board and cuticle remover, cuticle oil (Solar Oil) and others. The products for proper nail care and enhancements can be quite expensive and most of the best products are only available to qualified nail professionals. Therefore it is not possible for everyone to have a professional manicure at home.
On the other hand, nail salons are very well equipped and have all the tools that are required in this procedure. They are also manned by professional nail technicians who are experts in this field and strive to offer you the best service in accordance with your specifications. The nail technician will know how to safely trim any cuticles and hangnails and how to shape the nail without damaging the sensitive surrounding skin. That is why it is always advisable to go to the nail salon for your manicure.
