More Than 50% Of Women Say Their Feet Are Embarrassing: A Simple New Year’s Resolution Can Help, Says Xenna CEO

Industry: Beauty

While losing weight and toning up are at the top of most New Year’s Resolutions, feet are usually ignored - until Spring when sandals come out of the closet.

While losing weight and toning up are at the top of most New Year’s Resolutions, feet are usually ignored – until Spring when sandals come out of the closet.

“This is unfortunate,” says Xenna ( CEO Carol Buck, “because January is the perfect time to start a new regimen geared to making ugly feet attractive.”

More than 50 percent of women say their feet embarrass them “always, frequently or sometimes,” according to a 2008 study of 500 women by Kelton Research for the American Podiatric Medical Association, and Facebook has dozens of “I Hate Feet” groups.

“It’s no exaggeration to say that huge numbers of men and women hide their yellow or discolored toenails and avoid wearing sandals or open-toed shoes because they’re embarrassed by dry, cracked heels. However, making a commitment to daily foot care can solve the problem over time,” says Buck.

Yellow or dark toenails can be masked with nail polish, but scrubbing or scraping dry heels can be time consuming and repetitive. That’s why Xenna came out with natural alternatives that can be purchased in the footcare aisle.

“I was shocked to hear that so many women feel embarrassed by their feet,” confides Buck. “However, by including a new footcare regimen for either discolored toenails or dry, cracked feet in January as part of one’s New Year’s resolutions, attractive, ‘show-off’ feet are possible by May or June.”

“We wanted to find unique, patentable, long-term solutions to embarrassing feet. The end result of our research is, in fact, the solution to embarrassing feet and toenails.”

Xenna’s two foot care products are found in the footcare aisle of major drug chains and are made in America. Both are diabetic-friendly and use natural ingredients.

NonyX® Nail Gel for clear, healthy-looking Toenails and CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment for Smooth, Soft Feet both exfoliate excess keratin – either from under the toenail or on dry, crusted heels.

Patented NonyX® Nail Gel breaks down and removes keratin debris – the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails that causes them to become discolored and unattractive. NonyX softens unsightly keratin debris, permitting it to be gradually scraped out with a manicure tool, beginning after about four weeks.

With regular use twice daily (especially after bathing), improved nail color and clarity are seen within 5 to 9 months as keratin debris clears out. Once keratin debris buildup is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails clear and healthy-looking.

For feet that are dry, flaking or cracked, diabetic-friendly, acid-free CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment offers a natural, fast-acting way of exfoliating dead skin and moisturizing the foot.

The results of a four-week, in-use evaluation of acid-free CalleX Ointment’s unique enzyme formula showed it helps remove dry, cracked, or scaly buildup on heels and soles, while leaving normal skin unaffected. CalleX is also a humectant for dry feet by holding in the skin’s moisture.

“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 sandal season is definitely within reach.”
