Manicures (Hands)
Manicure is derived from the Latin words manus, meaning hand and cura, meaning care. Manicures began over 5000 years ago. In Arab countries, henna was used for manicures. Why do we have manicures? Well apart from the pampering from having the treatment done in a salon; it is also keep the nails smooth, the skin soft, to improve the appearance of the hands and keep the cuticles attractive and most importantly the nails healthy. A manicure treatment is not only a treatment for the natural nails but also for the hands. A manicure consists of filing, shaping, treatment, massage of the hand and the application of polish. Hands can be dipped in melted paraffin wax for softening and moisturizing. The intense heat allows for deeper absorption of emollients and essential oils.

Our nails are made up of a hard protein called keratin, which is one of the body’s building blocks. Our nails are very crucial to us as they help protect the ends of the fingers and toes from any trauma and assist us in picking up small things.Our hands are a part of our body that we tend to take for granted. Just think of what you put them through everyday! Nowadays, a manicure is the weekly regimen of most men and women.
