Nails in the News
There have been many stories in the news about the dangers of nail care. Nail Care doesn't have to be dangerous as long as you are proactive in choosing a safe, sanitary salon. Consider the guidelines below when choosing a nail salon:
·A thorough client consultation should be performed before any service, including health questions.
·Are they using new or disposable files and sanding bands on each client? These are items that should never be re-used on more than one client.
- Products should be in clean, labeled containers.
- The tech should be able to tell you each and every step they take to disinfect their implements. Implements should be stored in clean, clear disinfectant solution. They should be able to demonstrate how they clean and disinfect the pedicure tub/spa.
·The tech should never use a razor/ credo blade to remove callus from your feet. In most states, they are illegal to use.
·Both you and the tech should be sanitizing your hands before a service.
