Dr. Stern emphasizes in her article "A Day in the Life of a Nail expert", recently published in Nails Magazine, April 2019 issue, the first and very important step in feet care - exfoliation. Removing dead skin and callus from the feet is a critical treatment step, according to Dr. Stern.
She recommends a gentle way of removing dead skin and callus from the feet instead of a harsh removal with the abrasive techniques such as pumice stone, foot files, electrical files, which can cause a damage to the skin and may harbor a bacteria, unless they are one-time use disposable products. Such gentle way would be a soaking feet in a warm water with adding "softening" properties such foot soaks with Epsom salt. The soaking can be performed at home between services or in salon as an initial step in salon pedicure procedure.
Dr. Sterns explains that Epsom salts are a mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. The benefits of soaking feet in Epsom salts are improved blood flow, decreased swelling and softened dead skin, which then can be removed easily with gentle filling.
Do not forget to moisturize the skin after foot soaking, as it is the best time for the skin and toe nails to absorb the good quality lotion to keep them soft.
