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. ∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴∴ I like to go to a new nail place right before closing time so I can see how they clean.
