Looking for a skincare product that will brighten your skin and make a lasting difference? Skin Wellness aesthetician Lorinda Anderson recommends a serum that’s lightweight enough to feel comfortable while still making an impact.

“The Revision C+ Correcting Complex is a fantastic antioxidant for pigmented skin and does a great job of protecting against blue light.”

2. Genius RF Microneedling treatment

If you dream of better skin, give yourself the gift of self-confidence with the Genius RF microneedling treatment.

“I personally love it because makeup can be applied after 48 hours, so not much downtime is involved. After your skin fully heals, your face looks brighter and refreshed.”

Lindsay Moon, Skin Wellness

Dr. Hartman, the man behind Skin Wellness, raves about the treatment:

“Winter is a great time to schedule laser treatments, because you can reverse the damage done during the warmer months. You also have less temptation to excessive sun exposure, which leads to better post procedure skin protection. RF Microneedling is a great treatment to address fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars, skin crepiness and even the dreaded ‘tech neck.'”

Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness

3. Ritual + Shelter candles

With their location in Homewood, the team at Skin Wellness loves supporting nearby local businesses. Ritual + Shelter is a staff favorite with products that make for great gifts for friends. Their candles and dream journals are the perfect reminders to slow down. Grab one for a friend and one for yourself—plus, feel good about the fact that your gift purchase is supporting local.

Another Homewood favorite and the perfect way to treat yourself: cookies from Cookie Fix. Aesthetician Lindsay Moon recommends the cookie shop for amazing gifts.

While you grab cookies for your friends or coworkers, be sure to pick up a few sweet treats for yourself. Their menu of flavors rotates every week, but you’re sure to find something you love with options like the brownie bite and salted caramel toffee cookies.

5. HydraFacial
