We tend to take a lot of care of our face, but a few body parts are kept ignored, and our feet are one of those. In fact, these are part of our body which should be pampered and cared. Like our face and other parts, feet also need a special attention. All this can take just a few minutes every day but can feel great.

Our feet bear much than we expect. Rough shoes and slippers can harm your feet. To keep our feet happy, we can also visit a salon or a spa for gentle care and cleaning. A pedicure once a month will result in beautiful and soft feet.
Why should we care?
Most of the time we wear wrong shoes, because they match our outfit. This can have wrong results in a long time like in cracked feet, corns or ingrown toenails. This can be avoided if we take proper care and keep our feet happy. Unattended dirt which accumulates in the feet can lead to serious skin problems or stinking. A pedicure can solve all this for you.
How to make them happy?
If you are going through a pedicure for the first time, then suggest the professional to go for a longer massage and longer cleaning. You have to pay something extra but it will give you a great experience. Once you get a first session, your next sessions can be shorter. Trim your nail in proper shape. Pamper your feet at least once a month.
