Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) December 17, 2009
Experts in the field of lifestyle change suggest that it takes at least 21 days to replace an old habit with a new one. And, as we all know, changing habits is a challenging process - whether we're trying to eliminate a bad habit or develop a good one. Unfortunately, as we age, the visible effects of our bad habits become more and more apparent.
In the case of feet, neglect over time can result in unattractive yellow, discolored toenails or dry, flaky heels. Carol J. Buck is CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com) which distributes the foot care products NonyX® Nail Gel and CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment. She says, “Creating good foot care habits is the key to having more attractive feet and toenails. For those willing to make a commitment, having more attractive feet and toenails by summer is within reach.”
While losing weight and toning up are at the top of the self-improvement list for many, feet are usually ignored until the warmer months when 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. It can take months of personal attention, along with new habits, to feel confident in sandals or bare feet.
Podiatrists say that to be successful, a good foot care regimen means making changes to their foot surroundings, as well as good foot hygiene.
These foot care habits include:
- Thoroughly washing and drying feet
- Throwing out all old shoes and nail polish
- Changing shoes and socks daily
- Taking your own nail implements when getting a manicure or pedicure; never share nail tools with others
- After purchasing new shoes, place them periodically in a sunny place where they can air out.
For unattractive yellow toenails, topical NonyX® Nail Gel is formulated to exfoliate and remove the yellow or brown discoloration under toenails called keratin debris that can ruin sandal-wearing. With daily use on and under the toenail tip, NonyX Gel first softens then breaks down and exfoliates ugly keratin debris buildup.
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. See “before and after” photos of toenails at http://www.xenna.com/nonyx.html.

For dry, cracked heels and feet, CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment offers a natural, acid-free solution that let’s you get out of the habit of using a pumice stone or scraper. CalleX Ointment both exfoliates and thins thick, hardened heels and moisturizes dry, cracked feet. This is because it contains natural enzymes which selectively exfoliate dry, cracked, thickened or scaly skin while its hydrating base holds in natural skin moisture.
Diabetic-friendly CalleX Ointment is used by podiatrists, and is free of acids, parabens, colorants and lanolin. Lightly fragranced with refreshing peppermint oil, the 1.75 oz. jar is a one to two month supply. For “before and after” photos, go to http://www.xenna.com/callex.html.
