Sandal season is here! Pedicures will soon be all the rage at your salon or spa, but how do you ensure that you are giving your clients the BEST pedicure? Through educating and disinfecting, of course!
Educate Clients on Proper Nail Care
We know how easy it can be to let a coat of nail polish stay on our toenails for far too long. Not only does chipping start to occur, but the polish can begin to damage the layers of dead keratin that form the nail altogether, causing it to weaken. Nail polish remover can also damage and dry out the nails, and in some cases even cause cracking of the cuticles. While these minor issues may clear up over time, they increase the chance for an infection. Through providing your clients with a few helpful and easy tips on how to maintain nail health, educating them on the products they should use, and explaining how you are working to preserve the health of their nails, you will help your clients remain sandal-ready all season long.
Know The Difference Between Circulating and Non-Circulating Footbaths
A soak in a footbath should be apart of any pedicure. Not only do footbaths enhance the overall experience of a salon or spa but they allow clients to relax and rest their tired feet. Footbaths are designed to increase circulation, reduce stress, improve sleepinghabits and more, but they must be disinfected appropriately depending on their function.
To properly disinfect a non-circulating footbath, rinse the unit and use Rejuvenate™ Disinfectant Wipes or the Rejuvenate™ Ready to Use Liquid to clean the basin. This will allow for bacteria to quickly be destroyed, as it is not being circulated throughout the footbath itself. The process changes for circulating footbaths, however, as even though they are designed to circulate water, they, unfortunately, circulate bacteria as well. To thoroughly disinfect a circulating footbath, simply mix Rejuvenate’s™ Concentrated.
