There’s nothing quite like Christmas in Hinsdale, and this year is going to be better than ever. AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale is the presenting sponsor for the Hinsdale Chamber of Commerce’s 52nd Annual Hinsdale Christmas Walk. One of the biggest events of the year, the walk in downtown Hinsdale will include a Cookie Express Kiddie Train, holiday carolers, annual tree lighting, animated characters, Santa’s much-anticipated arrival, and a full-sized carousel that children and families can ride. New this year will be the appearance of two live reindeer. Not only is admission free but merchants will stay open to greet guests and offer free giveaways. The Christmas Walk goes from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 1. Kids will also be able to meet and greet Santa in Burlington Park on Saturday, December 9 and Saturday, December 16.

Winter has only just arrived but our skin is already feeling the effects. It may be time for some Skin Laundry—a pioneering new line of skin care products and services being offered at Ulta Beauty. “We are excited to partner with Ulta Beauty and provide Chicago-area customers with the service they’ve been asking for,” says Skin Laundry Founder Yen Reis. “Ninety-eight percent of our customers had never tried lasers before Skin Laundry, and this strategic partnership allows us to introduce a much wider audience to the innovative treatment for which we’re known: mild, effective laser and light facials at an affordable price point.” There are two ways to experience Skin Laundry. Step into your local Ulta and pick up targeted cleansers, specialty treatments and masks, moisturizer, and the trademarked SleepCycle pillowcase, which is essentially a sheet mask for your face. Or, if you’re out and about on Michigan Avenue this holiday season, step into the Ulta Michigan Avenue store for a signature Skin Laundry 15-minute laser and light facial. Your skin will thank you.
