Pedicure Tips for Memorial Day Weekend!

It's time to get your feet in shape! Visit your salon or spa and treat yourself to a professional pedicure to get those feet in tip top condition. Your pedicure starts with a relaxing foot soak. Then, the toe nails are clipped and filed. Cuticles are pushed back. The feet are scrubbed and calluses are smoothed. The best part of your pedicure? A relaxing foot massage! Polish is the finishing touch. Choose a bright fun polish color!

Pedicure Tips

Be sure your salon has clean foot baths. Whirlpool baths can harbor bacteria within the pipe system. Proper cleaning procedures are required to keep the baths germ free.  Many salon are now using foot baths that use disposable liners. This gives you a fresh clean foot bath every time!

Avoid shaving your legs right before a pedicure. Bacteria from the foot bath can enter a small nick and cause infection.

Do not allow a razor to be used on you to remove calluses. The use of razors for callus removal is illegal in most states. The razor may not be clean. A little nick can cause a big infection. Plus, a serious injury can occur when the razor cuts too deep.

Tell your pedicure technician if you are diabetic or have other circulation problems.

Take your own flip flops wear when you leave the salon. Salon disposable flip flops can be flimsy.

Be sure you have 2 hours worth of drying time before you put on closed toe shoes.
