It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you’re shopping for the woman who has everything, searching for your beauty-conscious bestie, or want to take your mom feel extra pampered this year, we have you covered with five unique skincare must-haves that are sure to impress!
1. Frownies Build-Your-Own Bundle
Create a personalized skincare gift with Frownies Build-Your-Own Bundle promotion in the month of December. You will impress any lucky lady on your list with these three signature Frownies products -
The viral TikTok sensation, Frownies Forehead & Between the Eyes Patches, are affectionately referred to as a “Botox alternative,” as they reduce the appearance of wrinkles - sans needles!
The Frownies Rose Water Hydrator can be used in combination with the Facial Patches or as a stand-alone treatment with the added benefit of hyaluronic acid known to enhance the skin’s hydration, firmness, and elasticity.
And no skincare gift is complete without an amazing face lotion. Frownies Moisturizer Face & Neck will improve her skin’s appearance with its aloe base and naturally occurring vitamin E.
2. Red Light Therapy
You’ve seen red light devices being used as an add-on treatment at your local spas; And now at-home devices have hit the market that can provide the same beauty benefits for the woman who has it all! The red light actually penetrates to deeper levels of the skin without damaging the skin’s surface. Studies have shown that red light aids in building collagen, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and improves the skin’s overall complexion. While a full-face mask of red light will set you back a few hundred dollars, mini wand devices can provide similar benefits and are more budget-friendly.
3. Silk Pillowcase
Are silk pillowcases the secret to celebrities' amazing skin? Probably not, but they are amazingly comfortable to sleep on. And according to some dermatologists, there may be benefits for your skin as well. Due to the slick surface, a silk pillowcase may reduce harsh creases for those who are prone to
sleeping directly on their face! In addition, silk doesn’t absorb moisture like cotton, so your skin will stay hydrated all the way until morning. Wary of standard silk? Opt for cruelty-free silk or bamboo fabric as a
vegan alternative. Any lady on your list will feel pampered with this luxurious gift.
4. Water Bottle
Let’s face it, most people need to drink more water. Internal hydration has a huge impact on the external appearance of our skin. So, what better way to stay hydrated than a super cute water bottle? And there are so many options to fit her style - glass, stainless steel, water bottles with infusion chambers for herbs
and fruits - the possibilities are endless! A fun, fancy water bottle would make a great little gift for a co-worker or at a ladies’ gift exchange.
5. Facial Roller
A facial roller makes a great stocking stuffer with many beauty benefits! Facial massage can enhance lymphatic drainage to decrease puffiness around the eyes, assist in removing toxins, and contour the face. The best part? One study showed that facial massage may lower anxiety and improve mood! Jessica Suidan, crystal expert and jewelry artist at Suidan Peaces, suggests using a roller made from jade or rose quartz for added health benefits. Jade is a naturally cool stone; it aids in lymphatic drainage and de-puffing. Jade is also thought to have calming properties to enhance the mood-boosting properties
of facial massage. Rose quartz is another popular stone found in facial rollers. Not only does it have a beautiful soft pink hue, rose quartz is said to promote inner peace and self-love - properties that every woman deserves! For best results, use a moisturizer or oil, such as Frownies Skin Serum, to decrease
tugging on the skin.
No matter which gift you choose, the strong women in your life are sure to feel celebrated with a gift from this list.
