    Default Do you shave your legs before a pedicure?

    I want to get a pedicure tonight, but my legs are a little prickly. (haven't shaved in two days You can barely see anything) I live too far away from the nail place to go home, shave, and come back.

    Do you shave your legs before a pedicure, or have you gone with prickly legs before?

    it kind of depends. If I've been to the place before and I know what products they use, I might or might not (depending on the products). My regular "deluxe" pedicure place regularly uses salt scrubs, but if you're just shaved, they switch it out and just use a different, non-salt product. Just be sure to let them know if you just shaved. My regular "cheapie" place doesn't use any scrub - just lotion - so there's nothing to worry about.

    I just read that for health and safety reasons it is best not to shave your legs at least a day before getting a pedicure. It was online somewhere, most likely MSN. So I would just shave the day before.

    I don't because the scrubs can really hurt if you've just shaved.

    I never thought of the lotions/supplies they use! Hmmm, that's good to remember. I just always shaved so they didn't see my stubbleys everywhere. I do it when I go to doctor appointments too. I don't know, just a thing.

    That's funny that you posted this, I am going to get a pedicure after work today. I was debating on going home at lunch to shave (shaved yesterday, not this morning)...maybe I won't! I never thought about it being a problem.
