Nail it!

If I told you I had news about a spa treatment that is good for your skin, your circulation and mental health you may never guess that I'm talking about manicures and pedicures. But I am. Hear me out...

The dirty fact is your fingernails are exposed to grime daily and it accumulates even though you wash many times a day. And, while you generally only expose your feet in the spring an summer, walking on them all day creates callouses and other uneven skin conditions. And keeping them covered up in socks and dark shoes is a breeding ground for fungus.

Professional manis and pedis groom your nails and are relaxing stress relievers. They include massage which improves blood circulation — which, by the way, improves your immune system while feeling incredible. During these treatments your skin is exfoliated bringing out a fresh beautiful glow and decreased signs of aging, wrinkles.

Then, when all this good work is done, go ahead and have a gorgeous, or fun, or funky polish color applied — or not. Nail polish is to a manicure or pedicure what makeup is to a cleansing facial. Neither is necessary, however it can be fun.

Bottom line, manicures and pedicures are important all year.
