Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 16, 2007
Because of the stress placed on their feet, athletes are commonly plagued with unattractive, discolored toenails and dry, cracked feet. These problems are quite often sports-related and can affect performance. While performance is a top concern, most athletes also care greatly about their physical appearance, and unattractive toenails or rough, scaly hands and feet look out of place with a great-looking, toned body.
According to Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com) CEO, Carol J. Buck: "In order to perform at their peak, athletes must start with hands and feet that are in great shape -- and keep them that way. However, because of the demands of sports, it's common for athletes and those with active lifestyles to develop rough, scaly skin -- especially on their feet -- and see their once clear, healthy-looking nails become dark or discolored over time."
Recommended and used by many podiatrists, Xenna's NonyX® Nail Gel and CalleX® Dry Heel Ointment are also used by professional football and basketball teams as well as amateur athletes around the country. Ted Arzonico, Head Athletic Trainer of the Orlando Magic Basketball Team, a user of NonyX Gel, stated: "I was skeptical in the beginning, but stuck with it, using NonyX Gel twice daily and sometimes three times after workouts in the pool. I used it on one toenail that now looks better than ever. Basketball players are leery of new products, but when they see my results, it's a different story. My nail looks really good."
Sold in pharmacies and the foot care section of national chains, NonyX Gel (pronounced "Non-X") is a topical, easy-to-use, diabetic-friendly gel that breaks down and removes keratin debris -- the discolored, yellow or thick, granular buildup under nails that causes them to appear yellow or discolored. NonyX Gel softens keratin debris using natural ethanoic acid, allowing it to be gradually scraped out from under the nail, beginning after about four weeks. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails clear and healthy-looking with regular use.
Smooth hands and feet are important for an athlete's performance, as well as his or her image. Many runners apply CalleX Dry Heel Ointment daily before starting their workout. CalleX Ointment uses natural enzymes to selectively exfoliate, thin, soften and smooth thickened skin areas, cracked heels and dry or flaking skin. Of particular benefit to athletes is the fact that the amount of thickened skin tissue removed is up to the user, so a fine layer can be maintained to cushion and protect underlying bone. After applying CalleX Ointment, a gentle rubbing action with a wet washcloth is sufficient to gradually exfoliate hardened, scaly skin while it moisturizes dry, cracked heels.
