With everything in this field there has to be a lot of hygiene. It is our priority. Tools are disinfected; materials are disposable from the pedicure tub covers to the nail files. It is very important for us to keep our feet clean and nail properly cut. Not only Diabetes should be cautious about their feet but us all. Our feet holds our weight and goes through sometimes tight shoes or flat shoes, dust in the summer and sometimes drastic temperature changes that a bit of TLC is the least we can give our feet. We give them a good scrub and a good massage to thank them for all the put up with.
