Having a pedicure is the most relaxing and effective way to maintain foot hygiene and keep them clean and fresh.

Most men think that having a pedicure is too girly or not a manly thing to do. It's time to change your mindset. Paying attention to how you look and looking after your nails or any type of grooming rituals isn't going to dent your masculinity, or make you less of a man.

Going for a pedicure is a must as it helps to prevent athletes' foot, fungal infection, smelly feet, ingrown toe nails, sore, tired feet, hard, rough skin, and thickened toenails.

Pedicures are a therapeutic treatment for the feet, they are done to remove dead skin, soften your feet, remove excess cuticles, cut and shape nails correctly with the correct implements which help make it painless. The deluxe pedicure chair with built-in back massager can help relax even the most nervous of clients. It's in a private location so no one can see you, helping to take the tension out of showing your feet to someone for the first time. The jacuzzi jets are powerful enough to help soften the toughest of feet. With summer in the door, it's a great time to get the feet sorted out for sandal season and trips to the swimming pool.

I understand some men feel conflicted about getting pedicures since beauty treatments have always been associated with women. Things have changed, getting pedicures or manicures is not always about beauty but sometimes about hygiene.

We use a drill which the men love to see as it makes it feel a bit more manly, also we assure men they don't have to paint their nails, unless they want too of course!

From personal experience, having a pedicure or manicure is a great way to relax your muscles and relieve stress. Both are so therapeutic and give you the feeling of being pampered. You just sit back and relax without the stresses of the world on your shoulders. Make sure you book an appointment for a relaxing, yet essential experience, you will thank me later.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
