The warmer months are here and it is time to start wearing peep toe shoes or summer sandals.

It also means making sure that your feet are in great condition - a pedicure is an easy way of achieving this as well as enjoying a relaxing experience.

Your feet endure a lot with the average person walking a few kilometres every day and many more kilometres if you are engaged in strenuous activities.

A good pedicure can be very relaxing and therapeutic, particularly if a foot rub or soak is part of the treatment.

“A good manicure and pedicure will clean and shape your nails and treat your cuticles, which is vital for keeping your nails healthy and strong,” a beautician said.

“During a pedicure your nails will be cleaned, shaped and trimmed to prevent ingrown nails plus the feet will be buffed to have dead skin cells removed and lotion applied to improve circulation and stimulate blood flow.

“All instruments should be new or sterilised to prevent the spread of fungus or disease. A pedicurist should be licensed and accredited and make you feel comfortable.”

Usually a layer of nail polish, the colour chosen by you, will be the finishing touch. Then you’ll be ready to step out in style this spring and summer.

Manicures and pedicures are a way to treat yourself or you can give a voucher for the perfect gift idea. This pampering is recommended for the health of your feet – plus you will feel better too.
