Two Atlanta-based scientists offer up a skin serum that is sure to get you glowing. 

Scientists Patrick Pickens and Dr. Holly Carpenter are the brains behind new Atlanta-based skincare line HiQ Cosmetics. 

Thanks to the latest advances in skincare, most of us have boiled our beauty routine down to a science. Enter HiQ Cosmetics, a new line of science-based serums created by two of Atlanta’s most brilliant minds, Dr. Holly Carpenter and Patrick Pickens. With Carpenter’s background in chemistry and biomedical engineering from Emory University and Pickens’ experience at the Centers for Disease Control, it’s fair to say that these two qualify as the brains behind the beauty. Carpenter says, “Skincare is my passion. I love using my scientific training to design new and innovative skincare products that are not only highly effective but also safe and healthy for my clients.” Highly effective they are. Especially the facial serum, which combats signs of aging with its immediate flood of hydration and vitamins. Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is the secret agent responsible for the silky-smoothness and well-nourished feeling left on the skin. Sounds like a smooth move to us.
