5 Foot Care Myths Exposed: Myth #5 – At a Pedicure…

Myth 1: It’s okay to wear flip flops or go barefoot. Flip flops sure look comfy, but the lack of support can lead to ankle sprains or tendonitis. As for those ballet flats you wear almost every day, they can cause severe heel pain and blisters, crowding toes or even worse conditions like bunions. For those of you who prefer to not wear shoes, watch out for cuts, abrasions, bruises and puncture wounds that make you vulnerable to skin issues. It’s okay to wear flip flops or flats for a few hours at a time, but you should stretch your feet if you wear them any longer than that.

Myth 2: Home Soaks for Corns are Safe and Work At home soaks/scrubs really only exfoliate. The only way to remove a corn is to actually have the hammertoe corrected so it’s not rubbing against your shoes.

Myth 3: You Don’t have to put Sunscreen on your Feet There is actually a pretty high mortality rate from skin cancer on the legs and feet just because people forget to put on sunscreen. Your best bet is to rub on some SPF 15 with UVB and UVA protection every few hours if you’re at the beach or running in and out of the water.

Myth 4: All Pedicure Salons use Sterile Instruments – You’re Good. Don’t assume everything in the salon is clean. Instruments can spread germs and cause fungus or bacterial infections- not a fun thing. Do yourself a favor and invest in your own nail files, clippers, cuticle sticks, etc. and sterilize them after every use.

Myth 5: At a Pedicure, Soaking your Feet in the Tub at a Nail Salon is Okay No. Just, no. The antiseptic that is put in the water between clients doesn’t get rid of all the germs. The filters can trap in bacteria and foot fungus and cause more problems. Either steer clear of the salons or ask the technician for a clean bowl or basin with individual liners.
