What Is The Difference Between a Spa and a Regular Manicure & Pedicure?

What Is The Difference Between a Spa and a Regular Manicure & Pedicure?

A manicure is a cosmetic treatment of the hands involving nail shaping and painting, cuticle removal, and skin softening – generally taking care of the hands and fingernails. The beauty treatment provided by trained therapists uses special tools, creams, and waxes to ensure your hands are pampered to perfection! But what exactly is the difference between a spa manicure and a regular manicure and pedicure? Read on…

A standard nail manicure procedure will ensure that any old nail polish is removed, and then cuticle cream will be applied and rubbed in. You’ll need to soak your hand in the prepared warm water for about 5 -10 minutes before the treatment of cuticle removing, shaping, and massaging begins. Then you’ll be asked to choose the colour of nail polish to be applied after a base coat has been added.

A good manicure will clean, shape, strengthen, paint and decorate your nails as well as attending to any skin problems you may have around the nail. Hand-massage techniques will improve the health of your skin, and the oils and waxes will improve nail texture and the skin of your hands.
A spa manicure will offer different shaping of the nail including an American style which is very natural and shapes the nail to the fingertip. As in the spa pedicure, a French classic manicure uses clear polish with a white tip, and a square cut nail. A hot stone manicure relaxes the hand with a massage using hot stone therapy, and an intensive paraffin wax rubbed into your nails and hands moisturises and softens.

A whole hand treatment comes under the luxury section! This includes a hand massage, softening paraffin wax treatment or heated mittens and a wrap, alongside a combination of heat and moisturisers to soften hydrate, and soothe.

A basic or classic pedicure includes the shaping of the nails and cuticle areas, sloughing of the feet and legs, massaging the calves and feet, and finishing with an invigorating lotion! A good pedicure will remove dead skin, soften hard skin, and treat your toenails. A regular pedicure can help if you suffer from foot problems, help your posture, and allow you to walk more comfortably.

A traditional pedicure will begin with a therapeutic foot bath where your feet are soaked and cleansed. An exfoliating rub will slough away dead skin with minerals or salts, then your pedicurist will remove cuticles, and cut and shape your nails. Creams and aromatherapy oils will be massaged into your feet and lower legs before your toenails are painted with a high quality polish.

A spa pedicure goes much further – the service is much longer utilising an aromatic salt rub, hot towel wraps alongside hot stone massages or paraffin dips. Spas use single-use systems that avoid any chance of cross-contamination when the paraffin is put onto your feet, leaving just a soothing scent of lavender from the essential oils.

A spa menu will include a French pedicure which uses long lasting nail varnish and whitens the tips, a Gel pedicure where clear or coloured gel is bonded to your nails using UV light for a long-lasting glossy look, and a luxury pedicure which is a whole foot treatment including a massage to warm and soothe your feet as well as softening and hydrating your nails. The pedicure chair should drain water rather than re-circulating it to ensure every procedure is completely sanitary.

Pluck? Shave? Wax? Let it be? What to do about facial hair

When I was 16, a boy informed me that I had more hair on my upper lip than he did. (File under, “How to terrorize a teenaged girl.”) I was beyond mortified, and since then, it’s been me versus this hair, which, delightfully, also exists on my chin. My lip and chin hair has been much more of a source of anxiety than my leg hair, which I haven’t shaved in close to a decade.
