Nothing. I think I do a better job on my feet than they do!

@AquaGrey8962:  There are medical pedicures.  They help with circulation and help catch issues like foot ulcers before they become severe.  Some people also aren’t capable of cutting their own toenails properly, which can also lead to infections.

I’ve never had a problem with getting a pedicure and I get one every couple of months. They do a WAY better job than I do and I kind of enjoy the special treat for my feet.

I think the benefit is also having somebody do the work. it takes me a long time spent on the floor hunched over my feet, and I find all the cuticle pushing and stuff to be tedious. but I think pedis are too expensive, so I do the work myself anyway. also, I’ve gotten a couple of ingrown toenails from salons before, so I feel like I can’t trust them to cut my nails correctly.  

but if you’re really bad at painting nails, then my suggestion is to make an appointment where you could request in advance for them to not give you a foot rub.  read reviews on yelp first, they should help you figure out whether you can trust the cleanliness of a salon or not.

I’ve been getting pedicures since middle school.  I’m almost 30 now and I have never had any issues with pedicures and nail issues. 

I get one about once a month because they are so much better at getting my cuticles under control than I am. I can paint them just fine. I do cut the nails myself before I go because they never want to cut them short enough. Plus, I don’t want to get ingrown nails. 

If you are seriously concerned, go to a beauty supply store and invest in tools to bring and ask the nail tech to use yours. Make sure they clean the foot bath really well.  I always have the water as hot as I can stand since germs and such don’t like hot water.
