Pedicure is the beautician's way to improve the appearance of the feet and nails.The word pedicure comes from the Latin words pedis, which means of the ankle, and cura, which means care. It also means the care of the feet and toe nails. A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails; usually dead skin cells on the bottom of feet are rubbed off using a rough stone called a pumice stone. Additionally, leg care below the knee became a common and now expected service included in pedicures. Leg care includes depilation via either shaving or waxing followed by granular exfoliation, application of moisturizing creams, and a brief leg massage. Those at risk for blood clots should forgo leg massage.
