Pedicure Dangers??

Hi loves!

pedicure

Today I wanted to chat about pedicures with you all! As a nail tech myself, I am a stickler for sanitation and safety when it comes to pedicures in a salon. I thought it would be helpful to share some important information that you as a client may not be aware of. When you go into a salon and pay for your services, you should be aware of some potential dangers that you may run into and not actually realize! So lets just jump right in!

Don’t shave your legs!?

Did you know its suggested that you do NOT shave your legs at least 48 hours prior to going in for a pedicure?? Whether you can notice it or not, your legs can have micro-abrasions from shaving. So its important to think about this before you go to a salon and use a foot bath. This can lead to potential infections if the pedicure spas are not disinfected properly.

What’s hiding in those spa drains?!

Its always important to ask (if you haven’t witnessed this) when your pedicure bath has been last sanitized. In many states, salons are required to keep a cleaning log so you don’t ever have to worry. This includes taking the cover off of the drains as well. For your own safety, it’s also important to know if your nail tech has properly sanitized the implements they use on your feet. Too often I have seen techs get “clean” implements out of the same drawer they throw the dirty tools in. If you ever see anything that makes you uncomfortable, its always okay to speak up or get out of the situation. There have been far too many accounts of women getting infections and even diseases from re-used tools and dirty pedicure baths!

Illegal tools?!

Speaking of tools…have you ever had those “cheese grater” looking tools used on your feet to remove a callus or rough skin? Run away and don’t look back! These are illegal as they are very harmful to your skin and cause abrasions as well.

Well guys, I hope all of these points have made you think and learned some new things today. My hope is that this can make your pedicure experience more healthy and enjoyable! These facts should be more common knowledge to assure you are taken care of in any salon environment. Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading. I hope your day is fabulous!
