Skin Care Tips and Products from Philips Crystalize

We spend a lot of cash on skin care products.  And with so many options, it's hard to find the right brands and types of products that address your specific, individual skin care needs.




Well, a new interactive website from Philips wants to help us map out a customized skin care strategy.  Simply go to the Crystalize website and join the community.  Then you can set up a Crystalize consultation at one of the site's retail partners.  Savvy New Yorkers may have noticed that some Duane Reade drugstores have been upgraded with a Sephora-worthy beauty section.  That's where you get your free consultation with a specialist who will recommend products based on your online Crystalize profile.

I went for my consultation at the Duane Reade in Union Square.  And as a BeautyStat participant in the Crystalize "Skin Secrets" video contest, I was given $75 worth of quality products to try out.  My major concerns are dehydration on my forehead and cheeks and blemishes.  After using the products -- Vichy cleanser, toner, acne-prone moisturizer, and La Roche-Posay sunscreen -- for about five weeks, I could see a noticeable difference in my skin's texture and appearance.

To my surprise, my video won the "Skin Secrets" contest and I was awarded an additional $200 gift card for more products.  This time I've added Lierac Paris' Micro-Abrasion Exfoliating Smoothing Cream an Toning Radiance Serum to my daily routine, and my skin looks brighter already.

So what are you waiting for?  Join the Crystalize community get your free consultation at a participating store near you.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic?

CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem
