Most of us were able to hide behind Zoom last Christmas, but the idea of being within 6ft of our family and friends this year has us panicking about our skin. The last year caused us to neglect our skincare routines and skip our beloved facials as we jumped from one lockdown into another. So, you’ve got the right idea of gifting skincare this holiday. But which skincare products would make the best gifts this Christmas? Whether they’re skincare obsessed or in need of an upgraded skincare routine, we’ve got Christmas gift ideas that’ll satisfy them all.
And no, not the kind of fridge that you want to store your roast turkey in for Christmas day. A beauty fridge is specially designed to keep your skincare products cool. Refrigerated skincare products will last longer, keep bacteria at bay, provide an unbeatable cooling sensation (especially with face masks), and cool and depuff certain areas of the face. Your skincare routine just got seriously cool this Christmas.
These pretty pink rose quartz stones will transform your complexion by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, boosting radiance, and draining toxins. It’ll also contour and sculpt your cheekbones and jawline – ideal for a holiday that we’re all guilty of overindulging on. Simply massage your face following the instructions and watch your skin concerns and minced pies disappear.
A simple, but sweet gift this Christmas is lip balm. With almost everyone trying to fight off dry, cracked lips during winter, a lip balm will be greatly appreciated to moisturise and soothe the lips. Plus, we’re never too far away from mistletoe, so pucker up. You never know when you might bump into your crush.
As we sleep, our skin works to repair and regenerate skin cells, but with very little beauty sleep happening during party season, a night cream is the wingman (or woman) you need. Night creams help to restore the health of your skin and keep it moisturised throughout the night, at the very least. They can also stimulate collagen, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and firm the skin, depending on the skin concern you wish to target. Give them a reason to smile on a cold, winter morning as they get to wake up to beautiful skin. What better way to start the day?
As much as we want to keep up our thorough skincare routine throughout Christmas, our busy schedules full of social events can make it hard. Skipping a step or two is inevitable, which is why everyone needs to have a face mask within reach. Face masks are rich in highly concentrated, potent ingredients with smaller molecules that can reach deep into the skin’s layers, and fast. They also encourage us to slow down and take a moment to breathe and relax. Who do you know that deserves a break?
Because skincare goes beyond the face, right? Remind a loved one to take care of themselves from head to toe with a soothing, hydrating body lotion for the full spa experience. Give the gift of self-care this Christmas.
