How to Practice Good Foot Hygiene

Feeling good probably contribute to looking good. Tired and sore feet can have an impact on healthy feet. In addition to traditional enamels, pedicures now include warm paraffin wax to moisturise; reflexology massages to relieve tension throughout the body, and exfoliation methods to smooth skin. Cosmetic and salons companies provide masks to smooth, moisturise and refresh the foot.

You should take proper precautions as with any other treatment. Not all pedicures give good results or safe. The Orthopedic Ankle and Foot Society suggest the following to ensure a safe and effective pedicure:

  1. Soak the feet in warm soapy water for about 10 minutes as this helps clean and soften skin and nails.
  2. Gently remove or eliminate calluses with a Hindu stone, pumice stone or emery board after the foot soak.
  3. Push back the cuticles using a Hindu stone or an orange stick.
  4. Trim toenails straight rather than in a curved pattern.
  5. Cut the toenails in a curved pattern to allow the recessed edges to grow into the skin.
  6. Refine the nail edge using an emery board, maintaining the straight edge.
  7. Apply moisturising lotion and cream to the skin and nail margins.
