Ideas for Mother’s Day

The Best Ideas For Mother’s Day:

  • The Classic – flowers, chocolate, and jewelry – these are timeless and symbolize our love for our mothers (or anyone!)
  • The Practical – the things you know she loves already like her perfume, her favorite skin care, a massage are always appreciated by moms. And no – this does NOT include kitchen appliances 🙂
  • Time – something you can do with her – maybe a dinner or brunch out together, a trip to the art museum or a play or cooking class
  • Pure Love – that very personal handwritten/typed card or letter that talks about the things you love about her and your memories of nice things that she did for you, and a large hug

The best thing your mother can do for her skin health is to use sunscreen!

Happy Mother’s Day!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
