There are a number of benefits of a manicure including wrinkle prevention of the fingernails, damage prevention and the removal of hangnails. A professional manicure also helps to increase suppleness and flexibility in the hands and wrists.
As part of a manicure, the hands are often massaged with creams to help increase blood circulation. Manicures also exfoliate and cleanse the skin, and improve nail texture. Manicures have the added benefit of soothing and relaxing the person being treated, as while they hands are being handled pressure points are activated. Overall manicures serve to promote smoother, softer and younger-looking hands, fingers and nails.
