“How we all look forward to those pampering pedicures! One hour of complete relaxation,” said dermatologist Dr Gurveen Waraich, in a recent post on Instagram.

However, before you book your next pedicure appointment, you must keep some essential tips in mind, according to the dermatologist.

*Never cut your nails too short and in a curve, she suggested. “That could result in ingrown nails – a pretty painful condition. Instead, cut them straight and then get them filed.”

*Remember to not cut your cuticles. Instead, she advised pushing them back with a cuticle pusher. “Make cuticle oil application a daily habit. If you don’t have anything fancy, just use castor oil. It is equally effective,” she added, sharing that cuticle is our defence against nail infections.

*The expert advised to always apply a base coat. “Don’t directly apply nail paint. That could result in permanent staining of your nails,” she said.

*Lastly, don’t let your pedicurist treat your corns and calluses. “That could be a wart which requires a specialist. It is important to find the cause and treat it accordingly,” Dr Waraich warned.
