St. Kitts & Nevis Foot Care Residency Jan 2014

One week in St. Kitts and Nevis providing free Foot Care to the public, was a very rewarding, humbling and very very sweaty experience since the humidity almost killed me, however there was no snow so I was happy.
 
 
Providing foot care for the beautiful, selfless, and spiritual islanders they gave us so much more than we could ever give them,  hugs, smiles, tears, guava cheese and and experience we will never forget as they touched our lives.
 
I cannot even begin to express the feelings i came away with after four and a half full days of clinic.

Salon/Spa Tech protection and prevention

I've been doing a lot of reading on airborne particles and the effects on podiatrists and chiropodists over the years of being exposed to fungal spores and studies on possible hepatitis and HIV being present in the particulates.  Though not confirmed 100% it has one thinking how am I protecting myself from possible future complications.     Like dust sensitivity and asthma ...   Also not having my safety glasses as optional since I read of some drill bits letting off shards after continued use and hitting techs in the eye. Yikes.     I know I sound a lil overboard.  But if I'm nuts over being super clean and safe for my clients I guess I should do the same for myself.

As professionals we need to know the scope of our practice and industry

Gel Polish & Nail Enhancments

Artificial Nails such as Gel or Acrylic and even the new Gel polish nails are enhancments appliced for length, beautifucation or both.
 
There are always a few tips and tricks and troubleshooting as to why your nails arent lasting the way you want them to.
 
 
Lifting is a number one problem many people experience, which can be caused by:
1: soaking the nails for long periods of time (washing dishes, sitting in the hot tub, swimming)
2: Lotions that contain LANOLIN or MINERAL OILS.
3: Self filing the ends of the nails which breaks the seal of the acrylic or gel.
