MD Podiatrist Reveals Mistake People Make Before Visiting a Salon

Podiatrist Dan Michaels, DPM, has revealed the common mistake people make before heading to the salon.   According to Dr. Michaels, the big mistake made by so many individuals is shaving your legs in the couple of days before your appointment. 

 

Dr. Michaels states this is because: “razor nick can be a perfect portal for infection.” Instead of shaving in the days before the appointment, you should really wait until after your pedicure to avoid developing a nasty infection. You also should not cut or prep your toenails and feet prior to your appointment, as this can actually make it more difficult for your pedicurist to shape your toenails.
