One of the many side effects of going through the Covid-19 pandemic is the impact on your skin, caused by stress, increased screen time and wearing face masks.

While government guidelines have encouraged us to keep our bodies active to stay healthy physically and mentally, there hasn’t been a solution for the damage additional stress and anxiety has caused to our faces – until now.

Food bank lines build before Thanksgiving as more Americans go hungry


Massive lines have cropped up at food banks around the nation ahead of the 2020 holiday season. 

Reports from California, Wisconsin, New York, Texas, South Carolina and other states indicate many of the people waiting for assistance never needed help before this year when the coronavirus pandemic shut down swaths of businesses and sent unemployment surging.

In Rhode Island, food insecurity has left residents in dire straits not encountered since the Great Depression, The Providence Journal wrote on Monday. Some 25% of respondents to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank’s 2020 status report admitted they were unable to provide enough food for themselves and their families, up from just over 9% in 2019.

On the front lines of COVID, nurses confront life and death


EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A fire engine wailed its siren up Cotton Avenue and disappeared behind the El Paso Long Term Acute Care hospital.

A man at the front desk held his hand up to a visitor: “Please wait outside. A COVID patient is being transferred.”

Upstairs on the third floor, in an office outside the COVID-19 wing, nurse Valerie Scott updated a co-worker on the patient being rushed by the fire department to an emergency room. She wore black scrubs and spoke from behind a black surgical mask.

The supplemental oxygen wasn’t helping. The man couldn’t breathe.


“I don’t think he is coming back,” she said, worried.

725 people have died of COVID-19 in El Paso since March 23 — the day the county reported the first death tied to the novel coronavirus, according to El Paso Times. Grandparents, parents, siblings and one teenager have died; retired people,

Lines to get tested for coronavirus are growing long ahead of Thanksgiving and amid rising cases


As US coronavirus cases soar and people seek tests ahead of Thanksgiving travel, long lines are forming outside testing sites around the country, appointments are filling up, and commercial labs are warning that their capacities are being stretched.

People wait in a line stretching around a block outside an urgent care clinic offering Covid-19 testing in Brooklyn, New York, on Wednesday.

And while the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday recommended not traveling for Thanksgiving and encouraged people to celebrate in person only with their own households, some health officials have offered competing messages about how — and whether — people without symptoms should get tested if they insist on gathering for the holiday.

Long Coronavirus Testing Lines Hit NYC Again


But for many, the trouble was simply getting into a clinic.

At 10 a.m., Avi Weinstein, 31, was waiting in line under a light rain on West 88th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, inching his way toward a CityMD urgent care center where he hoped to get tested. “I’ve been here for an hour and a half,” he said.

Mr. Weinstein said he had come down with a fever the previous night and was worried that he might have been infected while celebrating the election results last week with friends.

“I was expecting a long line,” he said, “but not this long.”

The line would grow longer over the morning, with some people waiting nearly three hours before they reached the clinic’s door.

“We want to see our grandchildren at Thanksgiving, and we hope if everyone tests negative that can happen,” said Erica Eisinger, 76, who was waiting with

LA Fitness Lines Up $300 Million Loan From Main Street Lending Program


LA Fitness has lined up a $300 million loan from the government’s Main Street Lending Program, which provides emergency loans to help small- and medium-size businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic, said Robert Wilson, the gym operator’s general counsel.

Moody’s Investors Service cut the company’s debt rating in August. The company’s lenders hired PJT Partners Inc. in August in anticipation of talks on a possible restructuring or to secure additional financing.

The $600 billion Main Street Lending Program is jointly managed by the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve and was designed to support more lending to borrowers who were in solid financial condition before the pandemic hit. Under the program, the Fed will purchase 95% of eligible loans made by banks.

Privately owned LA Fitness parent Fitness International LLC, which operates more than 700 clubs across the country, carries $1.7 billion in debt.
