Things You Should Never Do While Getting A Pedicure

If you avoid these few things at your next pedicure appointment, you can minimize your risks of leaving the nail salon with an unwanted infection. According to U.S. News & World Report, you should make sure your salon keeps clean foot baths and tools. Podiatrist Joy Rowland, DPM, told Cleveland Clinic that you should check out the salon first to ensure it follows safe practices. “Visit the place you want to go. As you’re in the waiting area, watch and see what they do. Make sure they bring out new instruments for each client and clean and disinfect their bowls after each use,” she advised. If they don’t, you should go somewhere else.

Don’t allow the technician to use a razor on your feet to help remove callouses. It not only damages your skin, causing thicker skin regrowth, but also leaves you open to cuts through which you could get an infection (via U.S. News & World Report). “Sometimes the skin gets cut during the pedicure, then you put your feet inside the bowls. The bacteria from the legs, which is the natural flora from the skin, is swirling around inside the bowl and gets inside the cut,” Dr. Rowland said. “This can cause an infection inside the skin” (via Cleveland Clinic).
