Having beautiful nails requires care and without care the nails will not be beautiful. In this section, we read the recommendations of dermatologists regarding manicures and pedicures.
1. Apply cream to moisturize your nails, especially after removing nail polish. Because most nail polishes contain chemicals that dry the nails.
۲. To prevent infection, never cut the cuticles or push them back hard. Do this only after a bath or shower and do it gently.
۲. While most salons follow strict cleaning and disinfection instructions, consider the following when visiting a salon:
- Do your nail technicians have the necessary experience or license?
- Are the desks clean?
- Do the nail technicians wash their hands at work intervals between two clients?
- Are there any dirty tools around?
- Also, be sure to ask how they clean their tools.
4. Shave the bottom of your feet after a pedicure, not before. That is, do not shave the bottom of your feet for at least 24 hours before a pedicure. If you cut your skin while shaving, pedicures can put you at risk for infection.
5. If you do manicures and pedicures frequently, buy your own tools to use in the salon.
6. Also, make sure that the foot baths and filters are thoroughly disinfected before using them. If not properly cleaned, they can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. If the hall does not look clean, leave immediately.
7. If you want to apply a light red or orange lacquer, use an extra layer of base coat to prevent the lacquer from discoloring. If your nails have turned yellow or discolored due to varnish, if you do not use the same color again, your nails should return to their natural color within a few weeks.
8. While some people disagree, there is no scientific evidence that covering nails with gelatin makes them stronger. Varnishes containing reinforcing materials increase the firmness of the nails, which may make the nails break more easily.
9. Do not use artificial nails to cover your nail problems, as they may make nail problems worse. Artificial nails are not recommended for people who are prone to fungal infections or have brittle nails. Useful artificial nails will be safe for people with healthy nails as long as they do not use them constantly.
10. You need to know what materials are used in your artificial nails, because the materials used can cause an allergic reaction in some people. If you have a skin rash or other reaction, tell your doctor what products you have used.
