Holiday Gift Guide: 7 Skin Care Products to Add to Your Shopping List Holiday Gift Guide: 7 Skin Care Products to Add to Your Shopping List Holiday Gift Guide: 7 Skin Care Products to Add to Your Shopping List

The holiday season is upon us, which means you’re probably in the thick of shopping for gifts for everyone on your list. And while you might be splurging on your mom, sister, BFFs, and significant other, why not also treat yourself to something special, too? Want to give yourself (or someone you really care about) a gift or two that will keep on giving? Put down the holiday sweater and look for a few skin care products formulated to help create the appearance of a glow instead.

Hear us out: You can keep the holiday spirit going year-round by treating yourself to the right skin care routine for your skin type. After all, wouldn’t you agree that beautiful skin is a present worth giving? Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite skin care products to gift this year, including a charcoal mask, face moisturizer formulated with SPF and glycolic acid, and a facial cleanser that’s perfect to bring to the gym.

Skin Care Product Gift Idea #1: Charcoal Mask

Brighten up your day (and the appearance of your skin with our charcoal mask, the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask. Formulated with three types of clay and charcoal, this face mask helps draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, reduce the appearance of dull skin, and increase the look of luminosity. Immediately, skin looks brighter, while dirt, dust, and pollution are removed from the surface of skin. Besides the skin care perks of using a charcoal mask, face masks are also great for at-home spa days. Why not gift one to each of your girlfriends, then have them over for a slumber party? (Here are 6 Beauty Ideas for Your Next Girls’ Night In.) To use our charcoal mask, all you have to do is apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse it off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use as part of your skin care routine three times a week for best results.

Skin Care Product Gift Idea #2: Glow-Activating Face Mask

It’s probably safe to say that your mom is kind of a superhero. So, allow her to pamper herself with our glow-activating mask for mature, dull skin, the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Mask. This face mask helps renew skin’s youthful-looking rosiness in a fresh, cooling experience. The gelee formula glides over skin to cool, refresh, and leave skin looking smooth with a glowing finish. To use, apply the face mask to clean skin and leave it on for five minutes. Then, gently massage the face mask onto your skin using light, circular motions to help exfoliate. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water—and use twice a week for best results. Pair this face mask with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer, a daytime moisturizer for mature, dull skin.

Skin Care Gift Idea #3: Overnight Face Mask

In case you haven’t noticed yet, we have a thing for face masks. And it turns out you can use a face mask while you get that much-needed beauty sleep. Not sure what we mean? If your favorite co-worker travels a ton, consider getting them an overnight face mask, which they can use while they snooze on a long flight or in a hotel room. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Overnight Face Mask is a luxurious, hydrating leave-on creamy face mask that form a virtual protective mask to cradle skin. Immediately, skin feels hydrated and looks more radiant. Every evening, apply this face mask on clean skin before bed. You can use it alone or as the last step in your skin care routine after eye cream and serum. Smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed, and leave on overnight to see results.

Skin Care Product Gift Idea #4: Micellar Water

Is your best friend a total gym rat? Make her life easier by gifting her a no-rinse facial cleanser that she can use in the locker room without having to jostle for space at the sink. We’re talking about micellar water! Micellar water is a liquid facial cleanser that is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin (no rinsing requires). All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with micellar water and wipe the pad across your face. Pick from the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin to purify and mattify, L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin to hydrate and soothe, and L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanster Waterproof – All Skin Types to intensely purify.

Skin Care Product Gift Idea #5: Moisturizer with SPF

When it comes to putting together a daily skin care routine, sun protection should be top of mind. If you’re headed on a winter getaway (lucky you if that’s the case!), spoil yourself with a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen that you can pack in your suitcase and use while on vacation. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30 is formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 as well as glycolic acid, vitamin C, and Pro-Retinol. Apply daily as directed, and remember to reapply at least every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. You should also take other sun protection measures, including limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially during peak hours between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.), seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. (Go ahead and treat yourself to some cute now clothes and accessories this season, too!)

Skin Care Gift Idea #6: Peel Pads

In addition to charcoal masks, peel pads are another type of skin care product that can help increase the appearance of your skin’s radiance. And since the holidays fall smack dab in the middle winter—when skin can feel dry and look dull thanks to the lack of moisturizer in the air—we bet a skin care pick-me-up will be much appreciated by anyone on your shopping list. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads formulated with glycolic acid physically resurface dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Immediately, skin looks brighter. Use a peel pad nightly on clean skin. Gently apply in a circular motion to your face. Keep in mind that alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity, so make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen as directed and take additional sun protection measures in the morning.

Skin Care Gift Idea #7: Glow-Enhancing Lotion

Add a little illumination to your complexion with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glowtion Natural Glow Enhancer, a hybrid skin care/makeup product that’s an ideal stocking stuffer. This lotion instantly hydrates and illuminates for an all-over, fresh look. Just dot, blend, and glow!
