If you’re looking for ways to pamper Mom on Christmas morning, skincare products are always a good option.
They encourage moms to indulge and take some time for themselves during the holiday whirlwind.
And with so many amazing products available, there’s something to suit any need and budget.
Wondering where to get started? Here are five useful skincare stocking stuffers to consider for Mom’s stocking:
Sunscreen protects against UV damage, the number one cause of skin aging. It prevents both sunburns and dark spots.
Most sunscreens contain a blend of chemical and mineral ingredients that work together to protect skin from the skin.
Sun filters, such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, help form a physical barrier to block the sun’s harmful rays.
Other active ingredients include preservatives, thickeners, and other additives that keep the sunscreen stable and functional.
When deciding which sunscreen products to choose as Christmas gifts for Mom, look for broad-spectrum formulas to protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
A moisturizer with sunscreen can be an easy choice to help streamline Mom’s skincare routine.
Having a high-quality lip balm is essential throughout the year. In the winter, it can help soothe chapped lips and provide moisture.
In the summer, high-quality lip balm helps provide sun protection and protect from wind burn.
Look for a product that contains nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E and botanical extracts, to help both repair and protect.
Using a high-quality lotion can be an indulgent experience, so consider treating mom to a gift set of hand and body lotion.
Since lotions are available in a variety of different scents and formulas, you can tailor your gift to suit Mom’s taste.
From delicate florals to soothing vanilla scents to invigorating peppermint and citrus, there’s no end to the options available.
Look for lotions with ingredients like shea butter, beeswax, and other moisture-boosting ingredients to help nourish skin.
Cleansing Shower Oil
If Mom has issues with dry skin, upgrading her body wash to a cleansing shower oil can be a great way to give her some pampering.
A shower oil replaces a body wash or soap and typically cleanses without stripping the skin of natural oils.
The oil transforms into a rich lather when mixed with water, lifting away dirt and leaving skin velvety smooth.
Cleansing shower oil may be made with almond oil, shea butter, and other rich and nourishing natural oils.
Many shower oils are also specifically designed for people with sensitive skin, helping to cleanse without irritation.
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate on the face, making it prone to premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
To help keep the area plump, hydrated, and youthful, eye creams with ingredients specifically designed to protect delicate skin can help.
If Mom’s dealing with dark circles or puffiness, try a brightening treatment with skin tone-evening niacinamide and resveratrol.
Other ingredients to look for in an eye cream include retinol, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
Add an eye roller to help soothe puffiness and minimize dark circles for an even more indulgent gift.
Whether Mom favors zero-waste skincare products or the newest high-tech formulas, adding a few of these skincare stocking stuffers to her gifts is sure to make her smile.
After all, moms deserve a little indulgence after all they do for us!
