What is a pedicure and foot detox?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails. A pedicure carries many of the same properties as a manicure (another well known form of beauty treatments) with the only difference is, it’s the hands and finger nails.
Did you know people have been pedicuring their nails for over 4000 years? Many people would create solid gold tools to achieve a pedicure. Also there were early signs of pedicures in ancient Egypt as well as foot detox. They would color their nails red to show highest social class.
In the 2000s there were approximately 50,000 nail salons in the U.S alone.
Tools used for pedicures
Many tools are used to create a perfect pedicure. Some of the important tools used are acetone to remove any residue on the nails. Some cuticle cream may be used for soft and healthy feet. A relaxing foot detox is a must for a perfect pedicure.
Lotion is used to make the feet softer than ever. A Nail file to create a delicate nail shape. Toe nails clippers. Nail polish to give a splash of color. A pumice stone to remove all the dead skin from the sole of the foot. And finally paper towel rolled up to spread the toes apart so it’s easier to apply the polish.
