Why Men Need Manicures Too

In a time of pressure to look and feel our best, it’s no wonder people are easing up on their limiting beliefs surrounding gender-related grooming practices. Manicures, once seen as a girls’ day out activity, are now a staple for anyone and everyone who wants to have that after-mani glow and feel good about their nail health.

Getting your nails done is a staple of being pampered, which is essential for all people, but especially men. It’s critical for their ability to recharge, connecting with themselves, and overall self-care. When it comes to getting the paws and claws tended to, men are not in the dark.

It Helps Relieve Stress

Men are stressed, you guys, just like the rest of us. Is it a tendency for men to mask their stress, and try to get over it? Men must understand they deserve to take care of themselves and be taken care of.

Massages are often a standard part of getting a manicure. A soothing hand massage with lotion is a perfect and understated way to relieve stress. Having an hour or so to sit and do nothing but be tended to can go a long way.

Prevents Wear and Tear

Aside from the aesthetic appeal of a clean man hand, consider that men’s hands tend to go through a lot of wear and tear. This can pose a threat to their skin and nail health. Men who are active in the gym or sports tend to have dry, rough hands that can become uncomfortable over time.

Athletes are especially prone to having dirt and bacteria trapped beneath their nails. Careful attention to deep cleaning the nails is necessary to avoid infection or long-term risks. Massages can help to improve the circulation of the hands, especially if they are used to nonstop tension.

Gives You Confidence

Overall, getting a manicure works wonders for confidence. A man with a mani has got to have a confident handshake. Having confidence feels good and can go a long way.

If there is any real question as to why men need manicures, understand that anyone with hands and nails can benefit from a manicure.
