Indulge and Stay Safe: Pedicures 101

No matter what the weather, it’s always pedicure season. You may be a toe connoisseur or on the fence about whether or not to take the plunge; whatever side of the line you fall on, it’s always important to know what’s safe and what’s not when getting anything done in a salon.

Indulge and Stay Safe: Pedicures 101

Clean Tools

Ensure the equipment being used for your pedicure is either sterilized or brand new. Improperly cleaned tools can harbor dangerous bacteria that can cause infection. Take care to note the condition and treatment of equipment such as nail files, foot baths, toe separators, and polish bottles.

Licensed Technicians

Reputable salons should have employee’s state licenses available for customers. This ensures that the salon you’re at is up-to-date on cleanliness procedures and techniques, among other things.

Ample Time

If your pedicurist is in a hurry to get you in and out, they may hurt you in the process and/or overlook necessary safety procedures which are both two things you don’t want to have happen. Make sure that you and the nail technician have plenty of time so neither of you feel rushed.
