Germantown WI Podiatrist Recommends 3 New Pedicures to Try This Summer

germantown wi podiatrist summer pedicuresIn the heat of sandal season, our Germantown WI podiatrist knows that you want your toenails to look good. Whether you keep your toenails clean and simple or enjoy a colorful pedicure, our podiatrist in Germantown has some interesting pedicures you may be interested in trying to spice up your summer style!

Our Germantown WI Podiatrist Lists Summer Pedicures That Will Pamper Your Feet

#1—Fish Spa Pedicure

Forge the pumice stone to remove dead skin, dozens of tiny Garra Rufa fish do the job during this pedicure instead. As toothless scavenger fish, Garra Rufas, also known as doctor or nibble fish, swim up to your feet and gently nibble away at dead skin. The pedicure leaves the feet smooth, soft, and refreshed. A lot of research has been done on these pedicures to determine if there are potential health risks. Fish tank water may contain many microorganisms, but if a spa meets high hygienic standards, the risk of getting an infection is low. However, if you have a weak immune system, have open cuts or sores, or recently waxed or shaved, our Germantown podiatrist recommends waiting for a fish pedicure.

#2—Paraffin Pedicure

Looking for a pedicure that will leave your feet feeling baby soft? Try a paraffin pedicure at your next spa day. Paraffin wax treatments have been used since Roman times for therapeutic uses, including increased circulation and relaxation. A soft, warm wax is applied to your feet, and then they are wrapped in a plastic. After soaking for 15-30 minutes, the plastic and wax are gently removed, leaving your feet moisturized and silky soft. If you suffer from a condition such as psoriasis, arthritis, eczema, inflammation, or stiff joints, our podiatrist in Germantown WI says you may especially benefit from a paraffin pedicure.

#3—Margarita Pedicure

All the fun without the alcohol, this margarita-inspired pedicure will have you in a summery mood in no time! Water, sea salt, and lime are the only items necessary to pull this pedicure off, so you can try this at home. Soak your feet in warm water infused with the lime and sea salt. The lime acts as a compound that will soften even the toughest skin on your feet. Our podiatrist in Germantown recommends applying a mixture of essential oils and Epsom salt to your legs and feet after the soak. This will help exfoliate and remove dead skin. To lock in the moisture, apply a moisturizer afterwards and enjoy your refreshed feet! The salt and lime will also help to neutralize any odors your feet may have.
