Manicure and pedicure during pregnancy. Whether to do the favorite procedure?

STALEKS Journalist.
I write about the beauty industry, collect information, and share trends. I manage an interview column on the STALEKS YouTube channel.

There are so many things to think about during pregnancy. Safety is in the first place. It applies to many habits of the future mother: from the choice of food to exercise and even self-care. Some women refuse to dye their hair, do depilation or cosmetic procedures, explaining that superstitions or possible side effects.

What about manicure and pedicure?

It is believed that these procedures help to pamper yourself a little and relieve stress. Without a doubt, manicure and pedicure procedures bring relief and allow a woman to look rested.

Many pregnant women come for a pedicure in the third trimester, because it becomes difficult for them to cut their nails. During pregnancy, you want to enjoy this state and not worry about anything. In particular, do not want to worry about how safe it is for health to visit the salon.

In this article, STALEKS PRO will review the main points that must be taken into account by the client in an “interesting state.”  Manicure and pedicure can be safe and we will prove it!

Should a pregnant woman do or not do a manicure and pedicure?

First of all, what should be understood – pregnant women do not need to give up their favorite procedures!

Manicure and pedicure do not have to include nail polishing and the use of aggressive substances. It may be a hygienic procedure aimed at safely processing the cuticle and shortening the nail plate.

Many girls refuse artificial nails during pregnancy, and this is quite a logical step – long nails get in the way, they may break not in time.  We also support the natural and recommend hygienic manicure, but with one condition – accuracy. Nails should be the same length, neatly cut and filed. The cuticle and excess skin on the nail walls must be carefully removed.

What tools to prefer?

Manicure and pedicure can be done at home – a tool from the STALEKS brand for personal use will help achieve the desired result. You can order both the tool separately, and the whole set where there will be all necessary.

For a neat manicure and pedicure you will need:

  • Nippers or scissors for skin;
  • Nail nippers or scissors;
  • Laser nail file;
  • Spatula (pusher) for cuticle;
  • Foot file.

It is worth remembering that a personal set of tools is only YOUR set. You can trust your husband and relatives, but during pregnancy, the immunity is not so stable and strong, so you should especially carefully follow hygiene.

If you like to go to the salon to the nail technician, you cannot do without a professional tool. You can put together a personalized set of tools so that you don’t worry about the quality of sterilization and disinfection after other clients. The STALEKS PRO brand tool is made of high-strength medical steel, hand-sharpened, and therefore remains sharp and practical for a long time. Look at our catalog STALEKS PRO and find the perfect tool!

Also, in our blog, you can find useful articles and reviews to avoid common mistakes in selecting a tool, for example, which nippers to prefer?

What else is necessary to remember?

  1. With the onset of pregnancy, the woman’s body changes – this is reflected in the state of the nail plate. All of this is individual: some nails become stronger and grow faster (experts attribute this to an increase in estrogen), others have once-good nails that become brittle.
  2. In any case, it is essential to track changes in your body. Choosing the manicure, you should take into account the state of the nails. If the nails began to exfoliate and quickly break, special care products and the taking of additional microelements will help (be sure to consult your doctor before this!)
  3. It is essential to study the composition of the means used.  If you adore decorative manicure, do not make a choice in favor of cheap varnishes and questionable liquids for removing the coating.Choose polishes without formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate – these substances can worsen nail conditions.
  4. Do a manicure in a well-ventilated room – many pregnant women are sensitive to foreign smells;
  5. Even for your own set and your tools, do not neglect sterilization and disinfection;
  6. Take a break to warm up. If a manicure occurs at your home, pick up the most comfortable chair.

By the way! I almost forgot to tell you one lifehack. Taking care of their manicure and buying a personal set of tools, moms forget that the little human being is  born already with nails. And cutting these nails at home without a special tool is a test not for the faint of heart. Moms are afraid to accidentally prick the delicate skin or accidentally inflict injury.

Especially for you, our best mothers in the world, STALEKS presents children’s scissors (series BEAUTY & CARE and Classic). The tool has special rounded edges and processing of blades, which makes it not so sharp and traumatic for children’s skin.

As you can see, there is absolutely no reason to deny yourself a favorite procedure; the main thing is to remember the rules. Health to you and your future baby!
