Paul Myers, known throughout the aviation community and cyberspace as "Pilot Paul", operates http://www.pilot-pauls-travel-accessories.com. From the perspective of a professional traveler, he reviews travel gear, reveals insider secrets and gives travel tips.

Myers says that pilots sometimes are excused from taking off their shoes if they wear a certain type without metal. But in most cases, even those shoes have to go through the detectors.

He says, "As an Airline Captain, I love my work, but the least favorite part is the necessary task of going through security. I especially dislike taking off my shoes- it makes me feel somewhat violated. I am sometimes embarrassed by my lack of sock maintenance, as evidenced by a toe protruding through a hole I neglected to sew."

"I know that it can be even more embarrassing for people walking barefoot through the screening lanes. Let's face it - many people's feet are unattractive or smelly. For those with normally concealed foot afflictions, they are subject to embarrassing public display. I feel sorry for those who didn't wear socks and are left with no choice but to go barefoot in public."

Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com) which distributes natural foot care products, is also a frequent traveler. Buck receives emails constantly from men and women concerned about their unattractive feet and toenails. She says, "Because of the business I'm in, I know what an embarrassment it is for many people to reveal their feet at airports."

To travel more comfortably, Pilot Paul recommends taking along the right gear. For reviews on the best sleep masks, pillows, luggage and other travel accessories, see Pilot Paul's website, where he also maintains a blog.

For those with unattractive feet, Buck recommends getting into a regular foot care regimen and using foot care products that will actually solve the problem of embarrassment - if not the inconvenience factor. "Being forced to expose your feet in airport security can be a "wake-up call" for those who've put foot care at the bottom of their grooming priority list."

A leader in natural, diabetic-friendly foot care, Xenna distributes products throughout the U.S. in chain drugstores and mass retailers, including Wal-Mart, Walgreens, TARGET, Rite Aid and CVS.

For unsightly heels or soles, Buck recommends Xenna's CalleX® Ointment for Dry, Cracked Feet (http://www.callexointment.com), is a fast-acting salve which softens and exfoliates dry, rough skin.
Used by podiatrists, patented CalleX Ointment is free of potentially irritating acids and gently exfoliates with natural enzymes (subtilisin and aminopeptidase) while its purified hydrating base seals in skin's natural moisture, keeping feet smooth and supple. With daily use, baby-soft feet are achieved within 2 to 4 weeks.

For ugly toenails, Buck recommends Xenna's NonyX® Nail Gel (http://www.nonyx.com) which breaks down keratin debris, the cause of the problem. Keratin debris is the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails that causes them to become discolored and unattractive.

NonyX Gel softens keratin debris using natural ethanoic acid, which permits it to be gradually scraped out with a manicure tool, beginning after about four weeks. Once keratin debris is removed, nails can gradually reattach to the nail bed and look clear again.

NonyX Nail Gel is a leader in dollar sales in chain drug and mass retail outlets. Regular use of NonyX keeps nails free of keratin debris buildup, leaving them clear and healthy-looking. $2 Rebate coupons are available at http://www.xenna.com/xenna_coupons.html. The 4 oz. bottle is a 3-month supply and is money-back guaranteed Xenna products are never tested on animals, and are made in the USA.
