Why Should I Get A Pedicure?
You may wondering why you need to look after something that’s not going to be on real show on your big day, but have you thought about your honeymoon? Your wedding day footwear? Your stress-levels? Whether you’re a bride or groom-to-be, it’s time to turn a little attention to your toes.
This week, The Beauty Bible is dedicated to a lesser-popular topic: feet. They may not be everyone’s favourite subject: did you know that the word Podophobia means a fear of feet? Abhorred as they may be, it doesn’t mean they don’t need our attention: in fact, it’s quite the opposite! For cosmetic, therapeutic and medical purposes, a pedicure is a must on your pre-wedding beauty treatment list ahead of your big day. Read on, and let us tell you why:
A Day in Comfort
Walking down the aisle, waiting at the altar, standing for the receiving line and – of course dancing the night away…your feet need to be up to the challenge! Whether a bride in high heels or a groom in formal flats, the day can really take its toll on your feet, particularly if you have some existing complaints. Getting any nasty problems or areas of hard skin treated, exfoliated and softened ahead of your wedding will mean your feet are better equipped for a full night’s dancing!
Glam-Up Your Feet
Brides-to-be: what shoes are you wearing on your big day? Sandals, strappy, open-toes? If you’re wearing shoes that show your feet off even if just a little, take the chance to glam up your feet: especially if you’re wearing a shorter dress, as they be on show all day long. Make sure you treat your feet right: exfoliated skin and polished toenails will ensure your big day look is complete from head to toe!
A pedicure is also an opportunity to go for a fun, brighter nail colour shade. Your manicure may be more traditional, but with your toenails you can have more fun! Why not match your colour scheme?
Be Honeymoon Ready
Jetting off to a beach-soaked location with your new husband or wife? Answer ‘Yes’ and the chances are that you’re about to spend a lot of time barefoot: sunbathing, walking on the beach and swimming. Make sure your feet are ready to be exposed!
What’s more, wearing shoes without socks or walking barefoot – especially on coarse sand – can aggravate existing complaints, so get them cleared up with a quick pedicure before you head off on honeymoon.
Planning and preparing for a wedding is hard work, so it’s vital to take some time to sit back and relax. A good pedicure starts with a foot soak, which is a soothing opportunity to sit back and take the weight off your mind.
Furthermore, a foot massage increases blood flow to your legs, improving circulation and reducing fatigue, as well as easing any muscle-tightness you may be experiencing from that pre-wedding workout.
