Like Greene, Curél® Skincare strives to help Americans alleviate the uncomfortable side effects of diabetes, specifically dry, itchy skin that is vulnerable to infections. Dermatologists recommend Curél® Intensive Healing Cream to soothe and treat even the driest skin, providing immediate hydration and long-lasting relief to Americans with diabetes-related skin disorders.

In conjunction with Curél® Skincare, Greene hopes to raise awareness about this epidemic and provide support for those who suffer from diabetes by offering his professional advice on everything from diabetes-related skin disorders to fun fitness solutions.

Some of Greene’s expert tips for living well with diabetes include:

  • Don't feel like you have to face diabetes alone. Many Americans have the disease and there are many health care professionals and websites at your disposal. A healthcare professional can help you tailor an easy and achievable routine to help your body and your mind feel its best!
  • Go shopping for a new pair of sneakers. You might find you have some discomfort in your feet, a result of poor circulation. A comfy pair of kicks will not only make you feel better, but encourage you to get outside and go for a walk--and exercising is a true mood booster and a fun activity to share with friends.
  • Care for your skin. Take control of diabetes-related dry skin by taking a few minutes out of your day to moisturize. A cream like Curél® Intensive Healing Cream will soothe skin and leave it soft, while strengthening your skin's barrier (and protecting you from future infection).
  • Find a partner in crime. It's hard to break poor eating habits. Find a spouse, friend, or family member who also wants to change their lifestyle and eat better. Not only will they become a support system, but you can improve your health as a family and community!
