Our hands really take a beating over the course of a day, and many of these assaults affect their look and feel over both the short- and long-term. From sun exposure and harsh chemicals to hot water, bacteria and beyond, these environmental factors can lead to dryness and cracking as well as visible signs of aging like age spots and crepey skin. Applying your facial skincare products (and sunscreen in particular) on the backs of your hands is a great way to keep them looking healthy and youthful, but arming yourself with these hand-care essentials is a sure-fire way to keep them in tip-top shape.

The holidays are the time to celebrate your favorite things, and one of my favorites is the smell of a pine or fir forest. That’s why I’m just crazy about the Frasier Fir Candle ($26) from Thymes. The festive scent fills the room with the crisp, distinctive aroma of a verdant forest, perfect to evoke a sleigh ride through a snow covered fir lined road or a ski trip to Colorado.
The same seasonal scent is part of a larger collection that includes household and beauty essentials like dishwashing liquid, hand lotion, hand wash and home fragrance mist (sure to be a winner also).
The candle also comes as a votive ($11), perfect for a last minute stocking stuffer. Just scentsational!
