The pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of feet and nails. The word pedicure refers to superficial cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails. Pedicures can help prevent nail disorders and nail problems. They are very popular, especially among women.[1]

Pedicures are not only limited to the nails. Usually, dead skin cells on the bottoms of feet are rubbed off with pumice stones.

People have been pedicuring nails for over four thousand years.
