National Tennis Month in May Underscores the Importance of Foot Care, Especially for Diabetic Players, Says Xenna CEO

Xenna Corporation, manufacturer of natural, diabetic-friendly foot care products can help tennis players keep feet in shape, on and off the court, says Carol J. Buck, CEO.

Since the early days of tennis, improvements in equipment and playing surfaces have resulted in play that reduces stress on players' feet. Nevertheless, the game requires constant movement: forward and backward, side-to-side, running, jumping, lunging. Proper footwear and foot care are needed to keep players at the top of their game.

Moisturized heels and healthy-looking toenails are a goal for all tennis players, and this is especially true for diabetic players.

Carol J. Buck is an expert on feet. She is also an avid tennis player and CEO of Princeton, New Jersey-based Xenna Corporation ( Her company distributes the topical foot care products NonyX® Nail Gel and CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment nationwide.

Buck says, "The number one way for tennis players to take care of their feet is to make sure their shoes are comfortable, well-supported, and made exclusively for playing tennis. Off the court, feet need to be well groomed, as well. Tennis clubs are often associated with pools or beach recreation. When it’s time to relax and cool down, attractive feet can take center stage – or be hidden in covered sandals."

Women can hide unsightly toenails with nail polish, but men do not have this option. Xenna’s products offer a simple, effective solution, even for diabetics, to the embarrassment of unattractive bare feet.

Patented NonyX Nail Gel (pronounced "Non-X") works to improve the appearance of unattractive toenails by softening and exfoliating the hard dark, discolored or yellow granular material under toenails called keratin debris, which can build up over time.

NonyX softens, breaks down and then clears out unattractive keratin debris so it can be gently scraped out from under the nail beginning after about four weeks. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails looking clear and attractive with regular use.

NonyX can be found in the footcare aisle at Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid (larger stores), Duane Reade, Kinney Drugs, Kerr Drug, HEB, many Medicine Shoppes, Marsh, ShopKo and Harris Teeter.

Proper moisturization is important for tennis players and other athletes who place stress on feet. Dry skin on soles and heels can lead to cracks which are a particular concern for diabetics.
Xenna’s patented CalleX Ointment for Dry, Cracked Feet eliminates the need for scraping away scaly, dry skin – a procedure definitely not recommended for diabetics.

For dry feet, Xenna’s CalleX Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment quickly thins and softens hard, thick skin and removes dry, cracked or scaly buildup with its unique formula, which contains natural enzymes.
Free of potentially irritating acids, colorants, parabens, preservatives and lanolin, the natural enzymes in CalleX exfoliate ONLY dry, hardened skin, leaving normal skin unaffected, as it moisturizes and rejuvenates dry, cracked heels.

CalleX Ointment is available in the footcare aisle at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kinney Drugs, many Medicine Shoppes, Kerr Drug and Stop & Shop.

Buck says, “As a fun and sociable exercise, tennis provides tremendous benefits, and is a sport that can be continued over a lifetime. It goes without saying that proper foot care has a role to play in the quality of one’s game, especially in the boomer years.”
