Origin of PEDICURE
First Known Use: circa 1842
French pédicure, from Latin ped-, pes foot + curare to take care, from cura care
The pedicure is a grooming ritual for the feet. A salon service used for relaxation and as a spa treatment, the pedicure is standard foot care for both men and women. From the ancient origin of foot maintenance to the use of a foot massage to rejuvenate the feet, the pedicure is a necessary procedure to maintain healthy toes and nails.
The basic pedicure is a method to enhance the look of the feet. A pedicure session lasts from 30minutes to an hour. Feet are washed and cleaned first, followed by a detailed scrub and massage session for the feet. Nails are trimmed and polished, with the treatment ending with moisturizing treatment. Whether performed at home or in a spa, the basic function of a pedicure is to clean and maintain the appearance of feet.
• Feet demand proper care and attention because of their importance to walking and support of the body's weight. This spa service pampers and soothes tired feet, but also repairs brittle or ingrown toenails and removes dead skin cells off the bottom of the feet. Pedicures can prevent nail diseases and nail disorders.
• Avoid shaving and waxing your legs or cutting your cuticles a minimum of 24 hours before placing your feet in a salon foot bath. Shaving can cause tiny nicks in the skin. The bacteria "Mycobacterium fortuitum," can enter through these cuts and cause infections
