New Year's Resolution: Tackle Ugly, Yellow Toenails and Wear Sandals This Summer

Share Article

Changing habits is a challenging process, whether we're trying to eliminate a bad habit or develop a good one. Experts in the field of lifestyle change suggest that it takes at least 21 days to replace an old habit with a new one. In the case of feet, developing good foot care habits can improve the appearance of unsightly toenails and dry, cracked heels and soles.

Millions of men and women hide their yellow or discolored toenails and avoid wearing sandals or open-toed shoes in summer because they're embarrassed by the appearance of their feet. But, having attractive feet and toenails are within reach for those willing to make a commitment to using the right products and to developing good foot care habits.

Changing habits is a challenging process, whether we're trying to eliminate a bad habit or develop a good one. Experts in the field of lifestyle change suggest that it takes at least 21 days to replace an old habit with a new one. In the case of feet, developing good foot care habits can improve the appearance of unsightly toenails and dry, cracked heels and soles.

Carol J. Buck is CEO of Xenna Corporation, which distributes natural foot care products (http://www.xenna.com) to chain drugstores and mass retailers. She says," Creating good habits is the key to looking younger and feeling healthier. The critical period is the first 21 days. During that time doing a new habit daily is, quite honestly, annoying, but after 3 weeks, the brain accepts the new habit as a normal and expected activity which you no longer mind doing. "

Feet Often Neglected in New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Day is a time for making new habits related to self-improvement from head to toe. We all remember to work on our faces and bodies, but feet are usually ignored until the warmer months when the sandals come out of the closet. This is unfortunate because January is the perfect time to start a new regimen geared to making ugly feet more attractive. This is because it can take months of personal attention (and new habits) to feel confident in sandals or bare feet.

Fortunately, Xenna's natural NonyX® Nail Gel and CalleX® Ointment for Dry, Cracked Feet with natural enzymes are money-back guaranteed to make nails and feet more attractive.

Xenna's patented NonyX® Nail Gel is for use by those with unattractive yellow, discolored or thick toenails, including diabetics. NonyX Gel breaks down and softens keratin debris buildup under toenails - the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails which is the actual source of nail discoloration.

Within 3 or 4 weeks, the keratin debris is loose enough to begin scraping out from under the nail. With continued use, overall nail appearance improves over time, resulting in nails that are clear and healthy-looking after 5 to 12 months. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel then keeps nails looking clear and attractive with periodic use. NonyX Nail Gel is found in the foot care aisle of drugstores and supercenters. (See store list.)

Patented CalleX® Ointment for Dry, Cracked Feet thins and softens thick, flaky skin on feet and rejuvenates and moisturizes dry, cracked heels. Its natural enzymes selectively exfoliate dry, cracked, thickened or scaly skin while its petrolatum base retains natural skin moisture. Acid-free and diabetic-friendly, CalleX Ointment has been shown in consumer studies to significantly reduce thickened skin areas within 15 to 30 days and is sold in most drugstores in the foot care section. CalleX Ointment is free of acids, mineral oil, colorants and lanolin. Lightly fragranced with refreshing peppermint oil, the 1.75 oz. jar is a one to two month supply.

Used by podiatrists, diabetic-friendly NonyX Nail Gel and CalleX Dry Heel Ointment are free of parabens, lanolin, and animal-derived ingredients and are not tested on animals. They are also made in the USA.

Good Foot Care Habits for 2008

In addition to consistently using the right products, developing good foot care habits are key to having attractive feet. Good foot care habits include:

· Thoroughly washing and drying feet daily
· Throwing out all old shoes or donating to charity those that do not fit properly
· Changing shoes and socks at least twice a day
· Taking your own nail implements when getting a pedicure; never share nail tools with others
· After purchasing new shoes, place shoes periodically in a sunny place where they can air out.

"January is a perfect time to start thinking about your feet," reiterates Ms. Buck, "especially if you have discolored toenails. Once you get into the habit of using a topical gel or ointment, a few seconds a day leads to fun shopping in the spring for the latest sandal styles with baby-soft heels and gorgeous, natural nails next summer. While it can take several months to almost a year to solve the problem of ugly toenails, attractive feet and toenails are within reach, and the resulting self-confidence is definitely worth the effort!"
