How to take care of your feet
This video will show you how a Pedicure done on a Client, with their first Salon Pedicure. With a very thick Big Toenail that has Callus under the nail. A good pedicure should be down no less than twice a month.Caring for your body is as essential as caring for your soul.
Body and Soul, one must take care of their body as well as their soul. We feed our soul by fasting and praying, reading the word of God, and forgetting not to assemble ourselves with the body of Christ. We worship, we praise and we pay our tithes, along with following the guidelines from our Savior.
Now I do have to say, I was a little disturbed by the fact that she didn’t wear gloves during this pedicure, but I will have to assume she knows what she is doing. The manicurist called it callus, but it looks like fungus to me. One must take every necessary precaution to shield themselves from catching or running the risk of getting what others might have.
For years I would never get a pedicure, even though I would get manicures. One day while in church, I heard a Evangelist speak on how women are to take care of themselves, not only for the sake of their men but for themselves as well. When I looked down at my feet, I saw these great big old claws just sitting there looking back at me. I thought immediately she must have been talking about me. So from that day on, I begin getting pedicures also.
Encourage Yourself: Note that scriptures let us know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in us, whom we have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. We must therefore honor God with your bodies. As well as your soul.
Check out this gruesome video. Pamper yourself, by taking care of your feet, nails, drinking more water, eating healthier and exercising, and getting enough rest at night.
There are various different types of pedicures. Some of the most common types are as follows (names and products may vary from spa to spa)
- Regular pedicure: A simple treatment that includes foot soaking, foot scrubbing with a pumice stone or foot file, nail clipping, nail shaping, foot and calf massage, moisturizer and nail polishing.
- Shanghai pedicure: involves soaking feet in hot water and using scalpel
- Spa pedicure: Includes the regular pedicure and generally adds one of the following- Paraffin dip, masks, mud or seaweed treatment.
- Dry or Waterless pedicure: A pedicure typically including nail shaping, cuticle cleanup, callus smoothing, moisturizer with massage, nail polish or buffing, but definitively without soaking the feet in water. Often the callus smoothing, nail shaping, and cuticle cleaning are all performed with an electric file.
- Paraffin pedicure: A treatment that includes a regular pedicure but also includes the use of paraffin wax. The feet are covered with layers of paraffin wax to moisturize feet.
- Stone pedicure: Basically a foot massage that involves the use of different essential oils that are rubbed with the help of hot stones for the massage of the feet and legs.
- French pedicure: A regular pedicure that involves the use of white polish on the nail tips with a sheer pink color on the base.
- Mini pedicure: This focuses mainly on the toes with a quick soak, nail shaping and polish, but does not include the massage or sole care. This is designed for an appointment between regular pedicures for generally well maintained feet.
- Athletic pedicure: Similar to a regular pedicure for both the genders. It includes either a clear polish or toenail buffing. Usually, the aromatics used will be more cooling, such as peppermint, cucumber, or eucalyptus.
- Chocolate pedicure: A pedicure which may include a chocolate foot soak, chocolate foot mask, or chocolate moisturizing lotion.
- Ice Cream pedicure: A pedicure where a “bath ball”, which looks like a scoop of ice cream, is chosen. The soak is followed with a foot scrub (usually vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry) and topped with a whipped moisturizing lotion. Red nail polish simulates the ice cream’s “cherry”.
- Margarita pedicure: A regular pedicure which includes a salt scrub, soaking water with fresh limes, a lime-based massage oil, and moisturizer.
- Champagne or Wine pedicure: This is a regular pedicure usually featuring a grape-seed scrub, grape mask peel, and finished off with a grape seed oil or moisturizing massage.
- Most places use a pumice stone or a PedEgg-type device to shave off calluses. If calluses are shaved too aggressively and the skin is broken, this can become a portal for bacteria or fungus. This is especially problematic for diabetics, who need specialized foot care.
- Solutions and chemicals used to cleanse or soak feet may cause skin irritation.
- There can be a risk of developing an ingrown toenail from improper trimming.
- Instruments may not be sterilized and can thus pass on fungal or bacterial cells. Fungi are easily transmittable from one person to another. These organisms can live for days on objects, especially if not properly cleaned.
