Take Care of Your Feet and Toes – What to Look for at a Nail Salon!

10% of all skin condition problems are fingernail & toenail related!

Don’t neglect your feet or hands!

§ Make sure that your shoes are dry inside. A moist and dark environment can lead to many foot related conditions. Avoid using powders on your feet that contain starch it can encourage fungus growth.
 
§ Be careful if you are diabetic, have circulation problems, et cetera.
 
§ Go to nail salons that dispose of non-reusable items. Metal implements should be opened from a sterilized bag if it isn’t ask for one opened in front of you.
 
§ Look for a dry heat or autoclave sterilizer. If they only use an UV sterilizer it isn’t enough to properly sterilize metal implements.
 
§ High level hospital grade disinfectant spray that can kill Tuberculosis should be used on all hard surfaces or non porous surfaces. No regular over the counter cleaners!!!
 
§ The foot tubs, chairs, work stations, bowls, et cetera should be cleaned after every client with the high grade disinfectant.
 
§ Ideally look for a nail salon that has disposable foot tub liners.
 
§ Your cuticles should not be cut! This can lead to infection!!!
 
§ After metal instruments are used they should be placed into a jar of disinfectant.
Look out for double dipping with a wooden stick or hand on your skin and putting back into a jar.

Trick To Make Your Lip Color Last Longer – Eye Gloss!

MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish provides high shine and can be used to enhance pigments or provide a wash of gloss and a hint of color when applied by itself.

Its great for the eyes, but its also great applied to your lips before lipstick, gloss, or liner. It has a slight shimmer and is a little sticky in texture which is why lip color adheres so well.  You only need a dab on your lips, exfoliate your lips first if chapped, warm the product on your finger tips for a second before applying to make it spread easier.

With Misto you can add essential oils and blend more than one type of oil.

Tea tree for breakouts

Lavender for relaxation

Add vitamin E or D

Spray oils are great for your body and hair:

~ As a dry oil spray for your body; it’s quick, easy and you can apply immediately after a bath or shower to lock in moisture. Get hard to reach places like your back.

~ Dry nail polish quicker.

~ Spray directly into your hair or a little in your hands as a light hair oil to smooth, defrizz, and condition.

~ Spray on your legs or collar bone for a sexy shine.

Be careful when you spray not to make your floor slippery. I don’t recommend for use on your face.
