Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When would you apply a mask during a pedicure

    • A.

      Before the massage

    • B.

      After removing nail enamel

    • C.

      After the massage

    • D.

      Before exfoliation

    Correct Answer
    C. After the massage
    Explanation
    A mask is typically applied after the massage during a pedicure. This is because the massage helps to relax the feet and improve blood circulation, making it an ideal time to apply a mask. The mask can then be left on for a specific amount of time to deeply moisturize and nourish the skin. Applying the mask after removing nail enamel ensures that the feet are clean and ready to receive the benefits of the mask. Additionally, applying the mask before exfoliation may interfere with the exfoliation process as the mask could be removed along with the dead skin cells.

      Verrucae

    • B.

      Psoriasis

    • C.

      Tinea Pedis

    • D.

      Paronychia

    Correct Answer
    C. Tinea Pedis
    Explanation
    Tinea Pedis is a fungal infection commonly known as athlete's foot. It affects the skin on the feet, causing itching, redness, and peeling. This infection is caused by various types of fungi that thrive in warm and moist environments. It is highly contagious and can be spread through direct contact or by walking barefoot in public places such as locker rooms or swimming pools. Treatment usually involves antifungal medications and keeping the feet clean and dry. Verrucae, Psoriasis, and Paronychia are not fungal infections but rather conditions caused by a virus, an autoimmune disorder, and a bacterial infection, respectively.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A verruca is not caused by a bacterial infection, but rather by a viral infection. Specifically, verrucas are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which infects the top layer of skin and causes the growth of a wart. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Find a contra-action to a mask treatment with hot boots

    • A.

      Smooth skin

    • B.

      Sunburn

    • C.

      A burn

    Correct Answer
    C. A burn
    Explanation
    A burn is the opposite of a smooth skin that would typically result from a mask treatment with hot boots. The use of hot boots can sometimes lead to burns if the temperature is too high or if the treatment is not done properly. Therefore, a burn is a contra-action or adverse reaction to the intended effect of achieving smooth skin through the mask treatment with hot boots.

    A pedicure with a mask treatment should take 60 minutes

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a pedicure with a mask treatment typically takes around 60 minutes. A pedicure involves various steps such as soaking the feet, exfoliating, trimming and shaping the nails, applying a mask, and then finishing with a massage and polish. The mask treatment is an additional step that requires a certain amount of time to properly nourish and hydrate the feet. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that a pedicure with a mask treatment would take around 60 minutes to complete.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Ensuring that the feet are thoroughly dry, especially in between the toes, is important to prevent Tinea Pedis, also known as athlete's foot. This fungal infection thrives in warm and moist environments, making damp feet a perfect breeding ground. By keeping the feet dry, the risk of developing Tinea Pedis is reduced.

    Therapists should advise pedicure clients to wear _ shoes or _ on the day of treatment

    Correct Answer
    open-toed
    sandals
    Explanation
    Therapists should advise pedicure clients to wear open-toed shoes or sandals on the day of treatment. This is because open-toed shoes or sandals allow the toes to remain exposed and free, preventing any damage to the freshly painted nails. It also allows the nails to dry properly without smudging or getting ruined. Wearing closed-toe shoes may cause smudging or chipping of the nail polish, which is why open-toed shoes or sandals are recommended.

    Chillblains are caused by

    • A.

      Ill fitting shoes

    • B.

      Dry skin condition

    • C.

      Heart disease

    • D.

      Poor blood supply aggravated by cold weather

    Correct Answer
    D. Poor blood supply aggravated by cold weather
    Explanation
    Chilblains are caused by poor blood supply aggravated by cold weather. When the body is exposed to cold temperatures, the blood vessels in the skin constrict to conserve heat and maintain core body temperature. In individuals with poor blood circulation, this constriction can further restrict blood flow to the extremities, leading to the development of chilblains. Chilblains typically appear as red, swollen, and itchy patches on the skin, and they can be quite painful. It is important to keep the affected areas warm and avoid further exposure to cold to prevent chilblains from worsening.
