Still, now that the time of peep-toe shoes is just around the corner, chances are you’re on the lookout for quality pedicure tools that will help you restore your feet to good health. What’s more, with the right tools at hand, you can not only repair and rejuvenate your feet, but also make your toes look gorgeous.

You’ll also learn how to clean pedicure tools and apply foot care cosmetics properly to get the most out of your self-care rituals.

Start browsing the categories of best pedicure tools and foot care products right now.

Pedicure Clippers

Toenail clippers are one of the most popular tools used for a pedicure. Unlike their manicure counterpart, pedicure clippers normally boast wider blades and longer handles. Not only does this allow a more ergonomic grip, but also makes it easier to cut through thick toenails with practically no effort.

If you’re not comfortable using clippers, opt for scissors instead. You want to look for sturdier models with either straight or curved edges (depending on the toenail shape you want to maintain.) Stainless steel scissors or clippers are usually a win-win option due to the hypoallergenic nature of the material, relative inexpensiveness, and durability.

  • Useful Tips. Lots of people think they know how to use pedicure tools. But in reality, they make tons of mistakes when trimming their toenails, which might be fraught with ingrown toenails or inflammation. To avoid any unwanted problems, make sure to cut your nails straight across. Don’t round too much at the corners and never trim too short.

Toenail Files and Emery Boards

Your pedicure set would be incomplete without a nice toenail file and an emery board. While the former is indispensable for smoothing uneven edges, which are bound to happen after trimming, the latter can help you achieve a polished and refined finish. What’s more, emery boards are great for mild filing and smoothing out rough areas on your toenails.

  • Useful tips. When choosing your toenail files or any other tool online, make sure your chosen pedicure tool’s name coincides with the picture on the box. This way, you won’t end up with a purchase you don’t need.

Pumice Stone and Foot Files

For a killer summer pedicure you need to ensure the skin on your feet is totally restored to its tip-top shape. And the surest way to do this is to invest in a couple of nice foot files.

Thanks to its abrasive pads, a smoothing foot file can quickly and painlessly remove dead skin cells and callus build up on your feet. It’s one of the best home pedicure tools that doesn’t require any skills to do its job perfectly.

You can also use a pumice stone for the same purpose. If you add this magic stone in your foot care routine, you can enjoy truly smooth and callus-free heels without spending a lot of money on professional pedicure sessions. But only is a pumice stone a great natural exfoliator but also an excellent way to prepare your feet for deep moisturizing.

Nourishing Foot Butter

Everyday factors such as heat, moisture, ill-fitting footwear, and sanitizing sprays may lead the skin on your feet to become too stressed and age prematurely. So, you want to pamper your feet from time to time with nourishing foot butter. Among the best options are shea and coconut butters famed for their softening and ultra-nourishing properties.

Unlike dedicated daily foot creams, which are lightweight, nourishing butters are enriched with essential fatty acids and other active ingredients that quickly penetrate the epidermis and moisturize even very dry skin. To amp up the effect, coat your feet with a tower or slip them into thick socks for 20-30 minutes. You’ll see the difference!

Disinfectants and Cleaning Solutions

If you want to know how to clean pedicure tools, you should follow a couple simple rules. Regularly brush your instruments thoroughly to get rid of dust and debris. Occasionally, you want to wipe your tools off with a clean cloth to remove excess moisture. Still, this might not be enough for a 100% safe pedicure. With this in mind, you want to invest in quality sanitizers and disinfecting solutions. Isopropyl or ethyl alcohol can do the trick! Just wipe your tools down with the 70% rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to keep them clean and safe.

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”

“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
