It’s that time a year again when we have to rack our brains to come up with the perfect gift for everyone on our holiday gift list. If you’re like me the list is very long, it contains anyone from co-workers, family members to friends. The list also contains gifts at all price points, high or low.
I consider myself lucky at the holidays. I work in an environment that offers gifts for all ranges of people as well as price points. Advanced Aesthetics at Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville is my one-stop shop for holiday shopping. Every year my family and friends rave about their new skincare products! They also tell me they never get tired of skincare gifts! All of us at Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa have come up with a list of our top picks for holiday gifts.
What Skin Care Treatment is the Right Gift for You?
Revision Intellishade – This is the perfect gift for any woman on your list. Revision Intellishade is an anti-aging moisturizer with a sunscreen. It is also tinted and can even be used as a makeup! Intellishade has many key ingredients that will help to conceal, correct and protect the skin. This product comes in 2 forms, original and matte. The original is perfect for drier skin types where the matte is better for oily skin and helps to reduce shine throughout the day. My favorite fact about Intellishade is that it matches every skin tone and color. It’s hard to believe but this product will blend into the lightest and darkest skin types!
Neocutis Micro Serum – One of the most popular questions we hear in our spa is “I need a miracle serum, do you have anything that will help me?” Neocutis Mirco Serum is by far the most popular serum (for good reason), this powerful serum combines the anti-aging power of collagen-building growth factors, as well as Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid, and peptides to reach the skin at a cellular level. This serum is non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, dye free, and dermatologist tested as well. The combination of effective ingredients in this serum helps stimulate collagen production and elastin synthesis to fight signs of aging unlike any other.
Restorsea Pro Intensive 10x – Do you ever want to liven your skin up, but your skin can’t tolerate ingredients such as glycolic acid, Retin A, etc.? This unique product uses Aquabeautine XL (Hydrolyzed Roe) as its key ingredient. What that is, is a naturally derived enzyme released by salmon as they are hatching from their eggs. The enzyme will naturally eat away at their shell, allowing them to swim freely. Research has shown that applied to the skin, the enzyme will eat away dead skin cells and leave perfectly healthy skin cells untouched and unharmed. Skin is left with improved clarity, tone, elasticity, texture, and the appearance of fine lines is reduced. This is an amazing product for patients with sensitive skin, patients who prefer natural products that deliver, patients who do not have fish allergies, or anyone who would love to benefit from exfoliating ingredients but unfortunately their skin cannot tolerate the more aggressive topical treatments.
Neocutis Lumiere – Everyone could use a good eye cream. Neocutis Lumiere has been our favorite eye cream for many years. It is one of the few eye creams that is safe to apply to the full eye area, including the upper eyelid. Lumiere contains processed skin proteins and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate, plump and firm skin around the eye. It also contains caffeine to help alleviate puffiness and reduce the signs of fatigue. This product can be used morning and night and is great to use under makeup.
Clarisonic Brush – Do you ever feel like your skin doesn’t feel clean enough after washing your face? The Clarisonic brush is patented to clean the skin 6x better than your hands and a washcloth alone. It uses sonic vibrations to deeply cleanse pores versus spinning brushes that can tug and irritate the skin. It’s great for all skin types and has many different brush heads from cashmere to deep pore to target your specific skin type and concern. The same makers of the Sonicare toothbrush system make Clarisonic, so you are literally receiving a patented level of clean.
NeoStrata Perfecting Peel – Experiencing dull, textured skin and wanting a low maintenance treatment you can use at home to help correct it? The NeoStrata Perfecting Peel is a weekly treatment to help with texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation. It combines both Glycolic acid for exfoliation and Citric acid for brightening. No physical peeling actually happens with this treatment, but with use weekly for 13 weeks, your skin will have a smoother texture and a glow to rival the lights on your tree.
Clinicians Complex Lip Enhancer – Love the look of fuller lips, but don’t have time or funds to make an appointment for lip enhancement? The Clinicians Complex lip enhancing gloss uses hyaluronic acid (a key ingredient in lip injectables), cinnamon, and peptides formulated with a vaso dilator to increase blood flow and increase plumping that lasts hours. Make your coworkers envious of your plump pout during the holiday party, your significant other curious of the natural fullness you now have, and your friends will be begging for your secret to no-needle luscious lips. This makes the perfect stocking stuffer, and a great suggestion for smaller gifts to grab at the last minute.
Latisse – Who doesn’t want longer, fuller eye lashes? Latisse is a solution that is applied daily to the upper eyelid. When applied correctly Latisse is proven to more than double your lash fullness in 16 weeks! Latisse should be applied to the upper eyelid in the same area that one would apply eyeliner every night before bed. After four weeks you should notice longer lashes, after eight weeks lashes start to appear darker and at 16 weeks you will love your new fuller lashes! Read more about Latisse at Latisse.com.
