Dry Winter Skin Isn't Only on Face and Hands: Take a Look at Your Feet

Share Article

In many areas of the country, this winter has been one of the driest on record. Dermatologists say lower humidity means keeping skin moist is a greater challenge, and pharmacists have been seeing an increase of patients with dry, itchy skin. In California, the problem has been so widespread that according to the Sacramento Bee, stores across the region have found it difficult to keep shelves stocked with lotion, moisturizer and lip balm.

In many areas of the country, this winter has been one of the driest on record. Dermatologists say lower humidity means keeping skin moist is a greater challenge, and pharmacists have been seeing an increase of patients with dry, itchy skin. In California, the problem has been so widespread that according to the Sacramento Bee, stores across the region have found it difficult to keep shelves stocked with lotion, moisturizer and lip balm.

While hands and lips are more visible, feet are another major casualty of dry winter weather. C. J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com), which distributes CalleX® Ointment, says, "When humidity levels are low, oil-based emollients are more effective than other products for dry, cracked feet. CalleX Ointment, which is petrolatum-based, is ideal for helping skin retain moisture, but it also contains natural exfoliating enzymes to rid the skin of flakes and dry, thick patches."

Acid-free and diabetic-friendly, CalleX Ointment uses natural enzymes to thin and soften hardened, thickened skin and remove dry, cracked, or scaly buildup. Newly patented, CalleX moisturizes and rejuvenates dry, cracked heels, and has been shown in consumer studies to significantly reduce thickened skin areas within 15 to 30 days.

Xenna's innovative, natural foot care products were developed and patented using formulations that focus on the exfoliation of keratin -- the protein contained in skin and nails. Xenna also distributes patented NonyX® Nail Gel, a topical, easy-to-use gel that breaks down and removes keratin debris -- the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails which causes toenails and fingernails to appear yellow, dark or discolored. Diabetic-friendly, NonyX uses natural ethanoic acid to exfoliate keratin debris buildup, leaving nails clear and healthy-looking with regular use.

CalleX Ointment is sold in the footcare section of Walgreens, Rite Aid, Longs and many Medicine Shoppe pharmacies, and online at http://www.drugstore.com and http://www.xenna.com.

NonyX Nail Gel can be purchased in the footcare section of Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Wal-Mart, Longs, Eckerd Pharmacy, Brooks Pharmacy, Duane Reade, HEB grocery stores and most Medicine Shoppes. Online, it is also available at http://www.drugstore.com and http://www.xenna.com.
