Summer has finally arrived and that means that people will be noticing your feet more than ever! It is the perfect time to stop in to Red Square to pamper your little piggies with a pedicure. Besides making your feet beautiful there are many other health benefits to pampering your feet regularly.
Early Detection of Problems
Receiving a regular pedicure can help the pedicurist detect early signs of corns, bunions and fungal infections. These conditions are easier to treat when they are identified in its earlier stages.
Decreases Chances of Infections
Clipping, cutting and cleaning of the toe nails help to prevent them from growing inward and causing nasty fungal and other infections. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases disorders (fungi) and foot odors.
Preserves Skin’s Moisture
A pedicure includes soaking your feet in warm water and being massaged with oils and lotions that help preserve the moisture and integrity of your feet. Moisturized feet are less likely to get blisters, crakes or other foot problems. It is also important to keep your cuticles moisturized to prevent nails from growing out with ridges or split ends which can cause the nails to lift out of the nail beds.
Exfoliates the Feet
Exfoliation, or removal of dead skin cells, prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be uncomfortable and painful. The removal of the dead skin on your feet, especially on the heel, encourages new cell growth which creates smoother and more attractive feet.
The most enjoyable part of the salon pedicure is the massage. Massaging helps promotes circulation and helps relieve tension in the calves and feet. Increase in blood circulation can reduce pain and help distribute heat throughout your body.

Thank you for getting back to me. Many years ago (50) my father would take me to the shvitz every week for the stream rooms, the oak leaves in a bucket of soap, eating dinner wearing our sheets, relaxing and bonding. It is a memory I’ve held for all my life, and now I can share that same experience with my son.
The above comment is from a recent visitor to the spa who brought his teenage son to the spa for the first time. The beauty of Red Square is that you can truly create a lifetime memory with your children within the spa doors. We offer experiences such as the sauna, tanning, spa or even a relaxing lunch to be shared with your children.
For individuals of Russian heritage, the relevance in a visit to our spa is that you can provide your child with a traditional Russian bathe house experience that may otherwise no longer be available to them while in the U.S. We also serve traditional Russian cuisine for you and your children to enjoy. You can relive some amazing moments from your own time in Russia while they can have a deeper understanding of your experience.
Not to worry. If traditional Russian cuisine is not your child’s desired choice we also have fan favorites such as chicken tenders, hamburgers, tatter tots and other kid friendly choices.
Whether fulfilling a bonding moment with your child, showing them a taste of Russia or simply enjoying a relaxing day at the spa; Red Square is here to help you build memories.
There have been mixed opinions on the consequences of the sun and tanning overall over the years. However, further research has found that tanning is an essential part of an overall healthy existence. Aside from enhancing beauty and providing a healthy glow on the skin, tanning has many other benefits when done in healthy doses. Winter tanning specifically has its own set of benefits and perks.
Research shows that tanning stimulates the release of beta-endorphins, our body’s “feel-good” hormones. This translates to positive psychological effects and well-being, as well as the great sense of elation that comes from a tan.
In the winter tanning outside is impossible but that is when indoor tanning salons can be a savior and also a better alternative than the rays from the sun which if done in excess can be hazardous. In door tanning carefully regulates a safe amount of “sunlight” that your body receives.Your skin is also safe from burning, damage and too many harmful rays.
In the winter, tanning is even more significant and there are several benefits. With little amount of sunlight available, particularly here in Chicago, many people lack vitamin D, a compound that is critical to good health. Vitamin D is produced when your body is exposed to UV rays, which usually come from the sun. However, in the winter, with very short days and most people preferring to be indoors to escape that Chicago cold, vitamin D becomes scarce.
Research shows that too little vitamin D leads to premature aging and low bone density. Visits to a tanning salon will give you that boost of UV that your skin needs to start making vitamin D. Visiting a tanning salon in the winter should be a part of a healthy lifestyle.
Are you someone who loves an intense workout but hates the uncomfortable soreness afterwards? If the answers to both of these questions are yes, then you should consider adding sauna use as an after workout regimen. Like the average person, soreness can occur after a brutal workout despite the amount of stretching you do. It may also occur when you first begin a new workout routine. This is why regular sauna usage is beneficial and should be adapted into your after work out routine.
Studies have shown that a sauna session can help loosen muscles to prevent that pesky soreness that can develop after an workout. Sauna usage can also alleviate deep muscle pain and achy joints.
The heat causes your body temperature to rise, which then forces blood vessels to dilate. The increased blood circulation accelerates the body’s natural healing process, which is why you won’t feel so tight and sore the next day. Sauna usage relaxes your body over all and can help to prepare it for the next work out.
The actual sweating process also assists in your recovery. Each session cleanses your skin through deep sweating by rinsing out bacteria and replacing the dead skin cells which results in a healthy after glow. Heat also opens up your pores and softens the skin. Yet, another reason why Red Square Spa is where you want to be!
