It's finally summer, which means that it's time to show off your toes as much as possible. Whether you're wearing your new favorite sandals or barefoot on the beach, a pedicure is a must for the summer months. If you're in need of a pedicure, you need to first decide what kind of pedicure you want before making moves to the salon. A spa pedicure is a great treat to your feet, incorporating long, luxurious treatments and also healing remedies for tired legs and feet. You will leave relaxed and your toes will look great, but it will take a long time and also end up being pretty expensive. If you don't have the time or money for a spa pedicure, there are always other options! An "Express Pedicure" is a great option for people on the go, whether on your lunch break or after a hard work out.
Whereas a spa pedicure has several treatment steps, an express pedicure is much quicker and straight to the point. You will still receive many of the relaxing and rejuvenating treatments offered in a spa pedicure, such as a foot soak in hot water and a moisturizing foot massage. A spa pedicure will then continue on to include exfoliation and buffing of the legs and soles of the feet, often followed by a soothing masque and hot towel cleanse. An express pedicure will actually skip these steps, and start trimming and manicuring your toenails. Just like in a spa pedicure, your toenails will be filed, cuticles will be trimmed, and polish will be applied to your toenails.
Express pedicures are perfect if you're trying to save money and time. You'll still leave the salon feeling refreshed, and your feet will thank you later.
