DANGERS OF THE CREDO FILE!

HELLO! TODAY'S POST IS ABOUT THE CREDO FILE AND THE ELLEGAL USE IN NAIL SALONS.
IF YOU HAVE EVER HAD A PEDICURE IN THE PAST, THEN MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE SEEN THIS "FRUIT PEELER LOOKING CONTRAPTION"
I'M SURPRISED THE CREDO FILE IS STILL BEING USED TO REMOVE CALLOUSES IN MANY SALONS IN THE AREA, EVEN THOUGH ITS ELLEGAL!
THIS FILE/BLADE CAN CUT YOU AND CAUSE INFECTION.
THE LAW IN IN MICHIGAN SAYS:
"IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE OR POSSES A BLADE IN THE PRACTICE OF MANICURING OR PEDICURING"
(THIS INFO IS FROM WWW.MICHIGAN.GOV/COSMOTOLOGY)

IF A CALLOUS IS THAT THICK, IT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED BY A PODIATRIST.

FYI, DON'T SHAVE OR WAX WITHIN A DAY BEFORE GETTING A PEDICURE, RECENTLY SHAVED LEGS CAN ALLOW GERMS TO ENTER YOUR BODY EASILY.


THANKS FOR VISITING, HAVE A GREAT DAY:)
