Important tips to prepare for your pedicure

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Summer is here and it's time for you to make the most of your open-toe shoes and sandals. Of course, nobody want to show off their feet if they have not taken care of them in a while. Not to worry, a professional pedicure will have your feet looking their best in no time. Before you schedule your appointment, here are some pre-pedi tips to remember.

Choose the right salon

This is the most important step of all. You want to make sure that you choose a salon where proper hygiene practices are followed. The last thing anyone wants is to go in for a pedicure and end up with an infection. All tools need to be properly sterilized. If you don't feel comfortable with a particular salon or technician, follow your instincts and look elsewhere.

Foot bath basin

Not only do their tools need to be cleaned, but so too should the foot bath basin. A good tip to remember is to arrive a little early and asking the technician to disinfect the basin in front of you. This is the best way of setting your mind at ease.

Take note of the smell

If you arrive at the salon and you notice a musty or otherwise unpleasant smell, turn around and leave! This is a clear sign that the salon is not as clean and germ-free as it should be. You don't want to risk it. You should also beware of salons that try to mask unpleasant odours with essential oils and other fragrances.

Combined treatments

When you want to make the most of your pedicure session, look for a technician who is also trained in reflexology! This way, you can enjoy a soothing foot treatment along with reflexology to target specific ailments.

If you are visiting a particular salon for the first time, take a few moments to do some research. Look into their experience and check out customer reviews. If you notice any alarming complaints, this is reason enough for you to look for another salon.
