Are Pedicures Bad for Your Feet?

With the weather warming up, it’s tempting to visit your local nail salon for a much-needed touch-up. But have you ever stopped to think about how professional pedicures may have a negative impact on your feet? If you don’t go to a high-quality salon, you put yourself at risk for developing toenail problems in Bolingbrook. Here are some tips on staying safe when you get a pedicure.

Don’t Shave Beforehand

If you know you are getting a pedicure on a particular day, make sure that you don’t shave beforehand. If you accidentally nick yourself while you are shaving, you open up a wound that could potentially get infected. It is best to avoid shaving until after the pedicure is over.

Choose a Reputable Salon

Don’t choose the cheapest or first salon that you find. Do some research on salons in your area and read their reviews before booking an appointment. Plus, finding a salon that has a good reputation likely means that they are up to code on all of their methods and that they use clean, safe instruments that won’t cause damage to your feet.

Opt for Only a Polish Change

You can easily go to the salon and only get your polished changed as opposed to getting a full pedicure. This way, you don’t have to put your feet in the water or deal with any potentially unsafe or unsterilized equipment.

You can also give yourself an at-home pedicure instead! This will help keep your toenails in Bolingbrook in good shape without the risk of infection from a salon.
