Taking care of your nails and feet is essential to maintaining a well-groomed appearance and good health. A regular manicure/pedicure routine can not only improve the aesthetics of your hands and feet, but also prevent nail problems, infections and calluses. In addition to professional care, many products are available in pharmacies to help you maintain your nails and feet at home.

* Scissors and nail clippers

Quality nail scissors or clippers are essential tools for maintaining the length and shape of your nails. They allow you to cut nails precisely, preventing unwanted breakage and tearing. Look for good quality stainless steel scissors and nail clippers, available at drugstores, for safe and long-lasting use.

* Nail files

Nail files are essential for shaping nails and smoothing their edges. Drugstores sell different types of nail files, including cardboard, glass, or metal files. Choose a nail file with a texture suited to your needs, being careful not to file the nails excessively to avoid brittleness.

* Cuticle care

Cuticles are the delicate skin that covers the base of the nail. Proper cuticle care helps prevent infections and maintain hydration in the area surrounding the nail. Cuticle oils or creams available at drugstores can soften and moisturize cuticles, making it easier to gently push them back. Do not hesitate to seek advice from your pharmacist who will be able to advise you.

* Foot products

When it comes to pedicures, there are many specific foot products available in pharmacies. Different brands such as Asepta, Excilor, Avène, Neutrogena, Urgo, La Roche-Posay, Uriage offer moisturizing foot creams to prevent dryness and calluses, exfoliants to remove dead skin cells, as well as treatments for common problems such as corns, plantar warts or fungus.

*Nail polish removers

When you want to remove your nail polish, removers play a key role. Drugstores stock a variety of nail polish removers, including acetone-free options that are gentler on nails. These removers effectively remove polish while minimizing potential damage to the nail surface.

* Nail polish and nail care products

Drugstores also offer a range of nail polishes and nail care products. You can find nail polishes in different colors and finishes, protective bases, top coats for better hold, as well as specific treatments to strengthen brittle or damaged nails.

It is important to note that if you are experiencing ongoing problems, such as infections or skin conditions, it is best to consult a healthcare professional, such as a podiatrist or dermatologist.

In conclusion, pharmacies offer a variety of products to take care of your nails and feet. By incorporating these products into your at-home manicure/pedicure routine, you can maintain healthy nails and a well-groomed appearance. Do not hesitate to ask your pharmacist for advice on choosing the products suited to your specific needs. Take care of your nails and feet, and enjoy a beautiful appearance and optimal comfort!
