The dangers to having an infected foot are endless, but here are these 4 reasons why you need to head to the spa.

Pedicures also help remove odor, eliminating dead skin and bacteria, cleaning toes well and dry and moisturizing too well. This should be highly considered during the rainy seasons when bacteria tend to lurk around and one needs extra care for their feet, and to get top notch care is not from regular washes but from a professional who knows what they are doing.
