Gifts that pamper and beautify can mean a lot, especially during the hectic holiday season. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, or simply shopping for yourself, a present that pampers the skin can help soothe and satisfy, while it protects and rejuvenates. Choose from among the trendiest skincare picks when selecting the perfect gift to bedazzle and delight.

Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector – Who doesn’t want to turn back the hands of time? Although topical products may not carry quite the wallop of a cosmetic or laser surgery procedure, this trendy wrinkle-corrector helps drive down the appearance of unsightly imperfections, such as signs of UV damage and acne marks, as well as surface wrinkles. It comes in an attractive jewel-toned blue bottle. It makes an indulgent and attractive gift for both the men and women on your shopping list. Look for this product at the Lancôme counter in your local department store.

Mary Kay Velocity Facial Cleanser – Mary Kay has most likely been around since you were in pigtails, although many of the products and formulas have changed over time. While some of the thicker, classic formulas were originally intended to help moisturize older, drier skin types, Velocity is specially formulated for younger, acne-prone skin. This product makes a terrific gift for teens and young adults who experience the occasional breakouts and pesky pimples. Velocity Facial Cleanser deep cleans the skin with its exfoliating action. It also acts as a toner, leaving the skin dewy and fresh. Your local Mary Kay distributor is a great source for this product, or order this and any other Mary Kay products from .

ClarinsMen Fatigue Fighter – Most large cosmetic manufacturers carry individual lines of products specially formulated and packaged with men in mind. ClarinsMen is the popular line of men’s products from Clarins cosmetics. The men on your list will appreciate the ClarinsMen Fatigue Fighter. This fabulous clear gel comes in a frivolous-free, white tube with blue lettering. The clear gel helps revive a tired complexion, giving male facial skin a fresh, energetic appearance with a soft, yet comfortable texture. This oil-free gel works equally well after shaving or cleansing, providing a nice blast of instant firming revival to fatigued and tired skin. Your local department store is likely to have this product in stock.        

SkinCeuticals Sun Defense SPF 20 SkinCeuticals is a company that takes pride in its educational programs and philosophy that focuses upon three basic fundamentals – prevention, protection and correction.

This ingredient helps protect your skin against the harsh damage caused by the sadistic sun’s rays. Select this gift for your friends and loved ones who consistently run out into the sun without heeding medical warnings regarding skin cancer risks.
