Diabetes-Friendly Eucerin Skincare and Health Tips

If you have diabetes, you probably have extremely dry skin. But over the counter relief is in sight, thanks to Eucerin's newest product line, Diabetics' Dry Skin Relief, specially formulated to prevent and relieve dry skin for those living with diabetes.


The non-greasy, alpha hydroxy-infused product options are: the lightweight Body Creme; the advanced coverage Body Lotion; and the gentle Foot Creme. Using the product is not a substitute for seeking medical guidance from your doctor or dermatologist, but they can help people with diabetes, and those who simply want a more substantial moisturizer, improve the appearance of the skin, soften and smooth dry skin, and achieve healthier looking skin.

Here are a few tips from Eucerin on how to incorporate Diabetics' Dry Skin Relief products ($5.99-$12.59) into your daily moisturizing routine.  Although Eucerin is a sponsor of the American Diabetes Association, these tips are not intended to be medical advice, or to treat the underlying skin disease or condition:

1. Monitor your skin regularly and check for skin breaks, especially on the feet.

2. Use moisture-rich cleansers and lotions to maintain the skin's protective barrier.

3. Look for moisturizers that gently exfoliate and provide intense moisture; they help remove flaky skin and bind water to keep skin soft and smooth.

4. Cleanse with warm (not hot) water and a mild, soap-free cleanser.

5. Keep baths or showers short to avoid drying out your skin.

6. After bathing, gently pat dry with a soft towel and apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp, to seal in moisture. Try NIVEA's (part of the same parent company as Eucerin) new In-Shower Nourishing Body Lotion for Dry Skin.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . 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 New York City, 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 white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City

Watching the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater makes me proud to be a Black woman. This ballet company is graced by dancers of color who can tackle any technique or dance style. But whether the choreography is rooted in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop or ballet, they do it the Ailey way, which means they move with so much culturally rooted soulfulness and swag that I find myself marveling at their languid form and fierce footwork. In my lifetime, I've seen the Ailey company perform at least a dozen times and each time I picked a performance that included Mr. Ailey's beloved "Revelations." I will never grow tired of witnessing this jubilant homage to the Black Southern Baptist church. By the end I'm always standing, singing and clapping along with the rest of the audience's Amen chorus. Yes, rock a my soul in the bosom of Abraham ! Like most theatrical events and performing arts programs, this is Ailey's comeback season after going dark in 2020 due to

Spring Cleaning: Clean Out Your Closet and Earn Extra Cash

Remember clothing?  As much as we love our athleisure, we can still recall what it was like to wake up and put on something other than hoodies, T-shirts, joggers and leggings. And now that coronavirus vaccines are available and we're resuming some sort of normalcy, we look forward to traveling again and meeting up with fellow vaccinated family and friends for brunch and outdoor fun (still wearing masks and socially distancing in public spaces). We also look forward to refreshing our wardrobe.  But if you want to make room for new garments, it's time to declutter and find a new home for the clothes, shoes and accessories you haven't worn in a season. Donating to a thrift store or charitable organization is always a good option.  For certain items in new or nearly new condition, however, you can also earn some cash by selling them at a consignment shop.   Here are several e-commerce and retail consignment shops we love: thredUp  makes cleaning out your closet easy.  Simply re
