I'm sure there's all kinds of skin types on your holiday shopping list this year. Give them something they'll really use and will get them real results for their best possible skin. I have compiled a skin care gift guide: 8 great products for various skin needs. I've linked all the products to the more in-depth reviews and product pages so you can read more. These are all products I have tested with my team. I don't get paid to endorse these products, I just believe in them because they have proven to work for my clients and myself.

For the holidays I will be offering 15% off my entire shop from Tuesday, December 13th through Thursday, December 15th, 2016. Use coupon code “skintourhol16” at checkout to redeem! These products on this Skin Care Gift Guide are all offered in the shop, at the links below.

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?!
