Are Salon Pedicures Really Safe?

Who doesn't love a pedicure!?!

Is there anything better than going to the salon to get pampered and leaving with soft, smooth, beautiful feet? But something to consider before you book your next pedicure is that there can be risks involved.

Pedicure Health Risks

Nail salons are often aggressive on those calloused feet. Not only is this treatment not ideal for foot care, but it can also lead to health risks including open wounds and exposure to dangerous bacteria.

Salons should be gentle on your calloused feet, avoiding that cheese-grater treatment, which removes protective barriers your feet need and can lead to infections.

In addition, salons should also be sanitizing instruments, cleansing the soaking bowl after each pedicure, and avoiding jet use, as germs can be harbored in jets.

But are they?

Pedicure Safety Tips

So how do you know if your nail salon is taking these protective measures and using these best foot care practices?

You could ask if these safety procedures are being followed or request that they are done before your pedicure. But still, it's hard to know for sure if the salon you choose is risk-free.

Are they using the most effective cleaning products? How often do they deep clean? What infections might the person before me have transferred to the soaking bowl?

What methods do they use to get my skin smooth and soft? Will they damage the important skin on my feet leading to long-term problems?

I love Roots & Bloom!

My feet are finally soft and smooth--all the time. I've been using the Exfoliating Pads for over a month now. I don't want to be without them.
