Megan and Sheila are talking about fragrances and that’s dandy. I’m however, on a totally different wavelength these days. I may be a little extra-terrestrial at times but I don’t this is one of those moments. Read on and let me know.
Lately, I’m on this kick about the cleanliness of spas. Now that it’s summer time, ladies are going full swing rockin’ their cute little sandals. But in order to wear them well, one must have a fierce pedicure. After all, nobody wants to be caught (not even dead) with busted toes.
On my blog Radiant Brown Beauty, I shared a two day post on Why You Need to Do Your Own Pedicures. I’d like to continue this discussion here and ask you this question…
Have you considered the fact that the items being used on your feet are not sterile?
Come on. Think about it. The nail technician usually squirts a little “cleanser” in the foot basin after the client before you. She then wipes it out and calls it clean. Really? That’s too much of a rush job if you ask me.
Then, there are the tools that are used to give you that grandiose pedicure:
- Emery boards,
- Nail files
- Pumice stones
- Cuticle cutters
- Nail trimmers
It’s impossible to sterilize half of these. I guess you could bring your own but then why go through all of that?
You can just do your pedicures at home (and do a darn good job at it). Doing them yourself will assure that nobody else is using the same products as you.
What do you think? Am being too anal retentive or do you see what I see?
