Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) May 31, 2006
Fake toenails, whether applied by a nail technician or at home, have become a relatively new option for people embarrassed by the way their toenails look. While some individuals have chosen the artificial toenails route because their nails are missing, many more are covering up toenails that have become yellow, discolored and unattractive.
C. J. Buck, MIA, CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com), which distributes natural foot care products, says she hears about the emotional suffering caused by unattractive feet almost every day. Buck says, "Many people avoid swimming pools or the beach because they simply don't want to bare their embarrassing toenails in public. It's a very common problem, and causes both men and women to feel terribly insecure about wearing the latest sandal styles or going barefoot - even at home."
Buck adds, "Podiatrists agree that natural nails are preferable for a number of reasons. With a little dedication and patience, almost anyone can solve the problem of unattractive toenails."
To get natural toenails in top condition, experts recommend the following:
· Keep feet clean and dry. Be especially careful to completely dry toes and feet after showering or bathing.
· Change socks at least once a day. Choose cotton socks and change them any time they become wet.
· Let your feet air out as much as possible and choose footwear that allows air to circulate around toes and feet.
· Never share footwear, socks or pedicure/manicure implements.
· Never walk barefoot in public areas - especially pools and locker rooms.
· Be careful not to damage nails when manicuring or pedicuring. Damaged nails can be traumatized by overly aggressive treatment.
For yellow, discolored toenails, Xenna's patented, diabetic-friendly NonyX Gel takes a unique, natural approach to the problem. NonyX Gel softens keratin debris - the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails that causes them to become discolored and unattractive - using natural, grain-derived ethanoic acid. After about four weeks of regular use, softened keratin debris can be scraped out with a manicure tool. Once this keratin debris is removed, nails look clear.
Buck says, "Xenna products were developed and patented using formulations that focus on the exfoliation of excess keratin - the protein contained in skin and nails. Our goal is to provide consumers with innovative, natural foot care products that address the cosmetic appearance of unattractive heels and toenails."
Xenna's CalleX Dry Heel Ointment also uses unique, patented natural ingredients. The exfoliating enzymes in CalleX Ointment thin and soften thick, flaky skin while it rejuvenates and moisturizes dry skin on heels and soles. CalleX is acid free, so it won't burn or sting when applied. Diabetic-friendly CalleX also includes natural peppermint oil for a refreshing scent.
