“Love the skin you’re in!” That statement as it pertains to body image and how we view ourselves in the mirror is a very important one, but what if, when it comes to your facial skin it’s hard to “love the skin you’re in” because it doesn’t seem to love you back all that much? Although my skin isn’t perfect, skincare is a tangible way I can care for and love the skin I’m in. But now why would I suggest gifting the gift of “skin” for the holidays? For myself I found it made me feel so much better once I found the right skincare which made it easier to enjoy the other part of beauty that I love – the makeup! Skincare is the perfect gift to give someone who doesn’t have a skincare regimen they love, or maybe they want to try something new but haven’t had the chance to. Read on for some gifting ideas that just might get you pointed in the right direction, so you can gift the gift of “I love my skin!” to those near and dear to you.
Gift Winter Essentials
Wouldn’t the gift of glowing skin be perfection? A couple of my skincare essentials for winter skincare (and beyond!) are the Clarisonic, which I use nightly, and for extra dry skin the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream has no comparison! There are a variety of Clarisonic products to choose from, but I especially like this Sephora exclusive value set for $149 that includes the Mia 2 in lavender and a few skin-loving extras. Check in-store for this special set, as it appears to be sold out online – or see other Clarisonic bundles here online at Sephora.

Shine On (Yes Even in Winter!)
Want to know an anti-aging secret? SPF! It may seem like one of those no-brainers in the summertime, but be sure to keep using SPF in the winter – especially those of you in snowy situations that also get sun – those rays can get bright! This Supergoop! Day To Day SPF set is a perfect gift for someone who hasn’t tried the brand yet – or anyone who would like some SPF that’s easy to travel with. My favorite thing about Supergoop! is that it provides coverage without being heavily scented. This set is great as a gift to yourself too!
The foundation for all of my beauty favorites begins before curling the lashes & puckering the lips – I’m talking about the skin of course!
A Gift for Eternal “Thank You’s”
I’ve got a bit of an emotional attachment to my ride or die skincare regimen that is almost exclusively Paula’s Choice products. For my oily, acne-prone and aging skin, a few of my favorites are the BHA 9, Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner, 2% BHA Gel, and the RESIST Ultra Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. Plus I’m excited about the latest Paula’s Choice Book, The Best Skin of Your Life Starts Here – I can’t wait to give it a read!

The Ultimate In Dry Skin Care
Winter is the perfect time to hydrate, and some of these picks for dry skin just might make your recipient’s skin go “Ahh!”. Dr. Jart + has a few gift sets for holiday gifting like this Ceramidin Set for face and lip that includes a versatile oil balm meant for dry areas on the face, elbows, cuticles and ends of hair as well as the Ceramidin Lipair Mint, a balm with cooling pepermint that refreshes and soothes. Another option is the Dynamic Duo Set that includes the Original BB Cream (one of my favorites!) and Dermaclear Micro Water.
What if you want a dry skin pampering treatment session? Try this Gift Sexy Dazzling Hydration Set from GlamGlow to get your glow on! The set includes a full size- 1.7 oz Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment, – 0.5 oz Supermud Clearing Treatment, – 1 oz Thirstycleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser and a dual-ended applicator brush. It even comes in cute gift-ready packaging.

Skincare is near and dear to my heart, and as much as I love a fabulous red lipstick or the most sparkling metallic eyeshadow, in reality, the foundation for all of my favorites begins before curling lashes and puckering the lips. I’m talking about the skin of course! Giving the gift of “skin” just might be his or her favorite gift this year, so I hope you’ve come away with some gift ideas in this post. Happy skincare shopping!
