Health Tip: Enjoy a Safe Manicure and Pedicure

(HealthDay News) -- If you want to treat yourself to manicure and pedicure, taking a few precautions can help keep nails healthy and prevent infection.

The American Dermatology Association offers these manicure/pedicure safety tips:

  • Make sure the salon is licensed and clean.

  • Never have cuticles cut or pushed back with force.

  • Don't shave your legs before a pedicure.

  • Don't cover up nail problems with artificial nails.

  • Apply a rich moisturizing cream to the nails, particularly after removing nail polish.
