Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) May 31, 2005
Once favored only by hippies, German tourists and elderly men doing yard work in plaid shorts, sandals have become mainstream. Now, they're a staple wardrobe item for men who want to be stylish, but comfortable. Flip-flops, thongs and slides are hot for this summer, as are more traditional and dressy styles, such as backless loafers. No longer worn strictly to the beach or in the backyard, men are wearing sandals to the office, the local nightclub - even on first dates.
Stepping out in style is easy with the wide range of choices currently available. Top sellers include designs by Teva, Birkenstock, Kenneth Cole, J. Crew, and Timberland. With more and more guys strapping on sandals, the obvious question becomes "What are men doing to make their feet look better?" According to one salon owner, "If you're going to wear sandals, you have to take care of your feet. You can't have yellow toenails and think it's no problem."
C. J. Buck is an expert on issues related to unattractive feet. CEO of Xenna Corporation, which distributes foot care products including NonyX® Nail Gel for yellow, discolored nails. Buck says, "Men have become increasingly concerned about their appearance, including their feet. Many are so embarrassed about how their feet look, they avoid shoe styles like sandals and flip-flops, and even pass up trips to the beach or pool. But now there are products that can transform feet from ugly-looking to attractive."
Patented, podiatrist-recommended NonyX® Nail Gel was developed to provide a solution to the problem of yellow, dark or discolored nails. Buck says, "NonyX Gel is a topical, easy-to-use gel that breaks down and removes keratin debris - the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails which is the actual source of nail discoloration. It softens keratin debris using natural ethanoic acid, and permits it to be scraped out from under the nail beginning after about four weeks. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails looking clear and attractive with regular use."
A recent clinical study confirmed NonyX Nail Gel significantly improves toenail color and clarity by exfoliating yellowing keratin debris from under the nail.

Dry, cracked heels are another source of embarrassment which keeps many men from being comfortable with baring their feet in public. Xenna's acid-free CalleX® Dry Heel Ointment uses natural, fast-acting enzymes to exfoliate, thin and soften thickened skin areas as it moisturizes dry, cracked heels. According to podiatrist David Tsui, "CalleX Ointment works very well. I have used it on my patients and on myself. You see a real difference in one week." A gentle rubbing action with a wet, soapy washcloth is sufficient to gradually exfoliate thick, flaky skin.
Jack Morgan, a Monterey Park, California podiatrist, says, "I've had male patients who didn't even want to take their socks off at night. In some cases, their wives told them not to, because they didn't want to be scratched by their husband's toenails. NonyX Gel works very well as a cleanser of keratin debris."
Dr. Morgan adds, "If you wear 'open' shoes, you must take care of your skin, since you greatly increase the chances of it becoming dry, flaking or cracked. Among the many products for dry feet, only CalleX Ointment contains natural enzymes, which have proven to be remarkably effective." Both NonyX Nail Gel and CalleX Dry Heel Ointment are diabetic-friendly.
