Calluses and corns are hardened skin that can crack and hurt if they get too thick. During a pedicure, don't let the salon technician use a razor on your feet. Razors raise the risk of infection. At home, soak your feet in warm water for at least five minutes. Then use a foot file, pumice stone, or exfoliating scrub to remove calluses. Don't go barefoot, either -- it can cause calluses.
If you stop thinking about your manicure the second you step out of the salon door, you'll want to give it just a little more thought. Regularly treating your tips to nourishing nail or cuticle oil, as well as moisturizing with lotions will "prevent nails from drying out and splitting," according to Cosmopolitan magazine, because "the less moisture your nails and cuticles have, the more likely they are to break and tear."

A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands performed at home or in a nail salon. A manicure consists of filing and shaping the free edge, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) any nonliving tissue (but limited to the cuticle and hangnails), treatments with various liquids, massage of the hand, and the application of fingernail polish. When the same is applied to the toenails and feet, the treatment is referred to as a pedicure.
