Most men believe that pedicures are strictly for women. But I say that nothing can be further from the truth. A simple pedicure helps take care of our feet that tend to get tired and sore after a long week of work. Add gym and other errands to the list, and your feet have had a marathon of things to take care of. Not just women, but men are on their feet all the time as well. So, why should they be left out from the wondrous benefits of enjoying a relaxing pedicure? Pedicure for men not only helps eliminate ingrown toenails, but it also makes those “manly feet” look passable.
When it comes to pedicures for men, the goal is for clean and healthy feet, not painted pieces of art. There’s no need to worry, most pedicures for men never even use a single drop of nail polish.
Pedicures not only make feet look and feel fantastic, they keep them healthy. Cracked heels and calluses can be moisturized or filed away. Toenails can be shaped and clipped to prevent ingrown nails or razor sharp edges. Infections or fungal issues can be controlled and treated with cleaning and lotion.
I think the major misconception when someone mentions Men’s pedicures is that Men getting their toenails painted. I know a few Men who has done that, except with clear coats. Nothing in bright colors like pink or red like Women do. I could assume that Punk Rockers get their toenails painted in black but that might be generalizing in my part. I’ll take this opportunity to apologize if that’s the case.
This is pretty funny to me because, while I get the occasional mani-pedi, I think of it more as a chore than a relaxing event — something I have to do to look put-together for events. So is that same social pressure to look “just so” making guys self-conscious about their hands and feet?
