We touch everything with hands be it food, clothes, utensils, books and thus our hands should be kept clean. Dead cells and other impurities should be completely removed from your skin. We also cook with our hands. Then the stains of vegetables and spices tend to remain in our hands. A manicure is the best way to get rid of these stains. It is therefore crucial to maintain the hygiene of our hands as many activities are performed by our hands.
Our feet are exposed to sun most of the time. Since we live in a tropical country, the effect is severe for us unlike for those who live in other countries. We treat sun burnt face skin and even hands sometimes, but we always neglect the feet. Then again there’s the dirt that we step on morning to night everyday. That is why you should get a pedicure once in a while. In addition, Our feet are said to be a main part of our body as they carry the whole of our body weight. Therefore, a certain amount of pressure is always maintained on our feet.
