After months of being stuffed into boots and hiding under socks, your feet are finally free to enjoy the sun and sandals of summer! But do your research before you run out to your local pedicurist. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a frightening 97 percent of salon foot baths are infested with potentially infectious bacteria. Ick!
Take matters into your hands and treat your feet yourself.
Joseph S. Fox, M.D., podiatric surgeon at TriBeCa MedSpa in New York, suggests you use emollient creams with urea and lactic acid components to quickly moisturize and allow your feet and heels to become smoother. And don’t forget about your nails. Fox reminds us that nails should be thinned and cuticles cleaned of debris to avoid fungal contamination.
You can still place your toes in the fingers of professionals, just be sure they are reputable and use clean tools, or better yet bring your own. For a full-service treatment, a medical pedicure like those being touted at TriBeCa MedSpa is your best bet.
