Great Holiday Skin Care Gifts

It’s fun to give something a little unusual, as opposed to bath oils, moisturizers, etc.

What about a trio of body scrubs in different scents with a loofah or a natural bristle, long handled brush to get the back area particularly. Or, do a theme for lips in a little bag, like a lip antioxidant repair product coupled with several lip or chapsticks with sunscreen (Jane Iredale makes a nice lip product with SPF, or Laura Mercier also). Include Bert’s Bees for the winter months in the original mint and some tints.

Or, a gift certificate to the dermatologist you know your mother likes. More ideas coming next week!

SkinTour Skincare
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?!
