Considerations Before Getting a Mani-Pedi
Getting a manicure and pedicure is generally safe but if it is done wrong, it can pose health problems. If you have plans of going to a salon for your manicure-pedicure appointment, make sure you do a quick inspection.
Sanitation and safety
Check if your nail technician has the necessary license or experience required. Check if the stations are sanitized and cleaned.
It is also advised to bring your tools. If you don’t have your own tools, make sure that the tools, foot baths, and filters that will be used are thoroughly disinfected. Contaminated tools can cause viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Avoid if you have active sores
Do not get a mani-pedi if you have any open wounds. Cuts, rashes or wounds will expose you to bacteria.
It is even advised to shave your legs only after getting a pedicure. Shaving before the procedure increases your risk of getting infections.
If you have or are prone to certain skin conditions, consult your dermatologist first before getting a manicure or pedicure.
