Tip #1 - Consider their skin type.

Picking the perfect skin care product for someone else can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. First, consider their skin type.

Whichever skin type they have, LovelySkin has the skin care products for them.

Tip #2 - Consider their lifestyle.

More and more, people consider what they put in their bodies and what they put on their skin. Fortunately, a multitude of effective skin care formulas align with the values of your nearest and dearest whether they prefer natural skin care with organic ingredients or environmentally vegan products. Here are two to try:

bareMinerals 24 Days of Clean Beauty – Give them a reason to celebrate all season long with this unique, clean beauty advent calendar that contains 24 skin care and makeup minis in universally flattering shades.

Tip #3 - Consider skin concerns.

Giving products to address skin conditions can be tricky, and you should leave the more serious issues to their board-certified dermatologist. But, these gems take existing regimens to the next level by targeting specific concerns.

FixMySkin 1% Hydrocortisone Healing Balm – This multipurpose healing balm is a lifesaver for so many conditions including chapped skin, bug bites, bee stings, contact dermatitis and as a spot treatment for flaky eczema patches.

Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Gift Set – This ultra-nourishing gift duo is ideal for anyone who deals with very dry, dull-appearing skin. It features two Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme favorites, formulated with ultra-emollient ingredients like mango seed and shea butter to immediately soften skin.

Tip #4 - Consider their age.

As we age, skin becomes thinner, drier, less elastic and in some cases, discolored. Before giving someone skin care products, consider their age. Mature skin benefits from different products and formulations than more youthful skin that still has most of its collagen and elastin intact.

DefenAge All in One Kit – Limited Edition – If your friends have mature skin, this anti-aging starter kit just might be their favorite gift. It contains the best-selling, five star-rated DefenAge Clinical Power Trio, which includes a masque, serum and moisturizer, formulated with proprietary alpha-defensins. This unique amino acid facilitates the production of new skin, instantly revealing a smoother, younger-looking complexion. It also includes a nourishing eye cream and chic travel bag, so they can take their skin care with them, no matter how far away they roam for the holidays.
