Pampering oneself in this aspect is not a sin. Men should realize that it is not totally "gay" to have clean and well maintained nails. If men are shy to go to nail care salons to have pedicure and manicure services, then be relieved that you can do these two nail care services at home. All you have to do is to secure clean nail care materials including high quality products and you can have your nails looking perfectly healthy and well taken care of.
One sure technique that you can do for your manicure regimen is to push and remove your cuticles every week after taking a shower. Afterwhich, you can put on some oil or lotion. This applies to both men and women. You can do this alongside cutting or trimming your nails. In case you have nail polish, make sure that you have at least a week of no-nail-polish interval so that your nails can breathe from the chemicals found from these nail care products. This easy manicure tip is sure to make nails look good.
The same actually goes for your pedicure regimen. After stepping out of the shower push and remove the cuticles around your toes. Afterwards, use a foot file to scrape dead skin cells around your feet. Apply oil or lotion just like what you did with your hands. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez do this all the time to have softer feet.
If you can make time, you can also soak your feet in pedicure products like rosemary solution. This can be bought in department stores and beauty bars. Mix the solution in warm water. Soak your feet in this rosemary solution for about fifteen minutes. Not only does this pedicure tip makes your feet smoother and softer, it is also relaxing for your whole body.
Other pedicure and manicure options include paraffin wax treatment. There are also paraffin wax treatment sets that you can buy for home use. However, it is highly recommended that you avail of this procedure in a nail care salon rather than by doing it yourself at home. Having this treatment once a week is a great way of taking care of your hands and feet. It has been known that the process of dipping ones hand and feet in paraffin then removing it quickly makes the skin soft and supple. It is the right temperature of the paraffin the prompts the pores of the skin to open and moisturize the skin. This also stimulate blood flow in these areas that causes nutrients to be brought to the hands and feet.
