It’s that time of year!
Time for eggnog, snow covered hills, jingle bells and the number one thing I despise - severely distressed skin. My clients always have more skin issues around the holidays. Sugary, high-calorie, processed foods are everywhere, which can lead to a slew of skin issues, and weather throughout the winter months leaves us cold and rosy in all the wrong ways. To help combat these skin blues at what is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, I have listed a few of my favorite gifts for the season that are amazing for all skin types. I love that these items and treatments can really make a difference and bring cheer to those you love that will last throughout the year!
A gift certificate to a licensed skin care professional is a wonderful gift. You want to make sure that the aesthetician you select offers advanced skincare treatments and has a positive reputation. Some of the best treatments to consider are SilkPeel Microdermabrasion, peels, microneedling and oxygen or a combination of all of these treatments that can be hugely beneficial during the winter months.
This amazing Ice Roller is filled with water and gel, and instantly calms, de puffs, and increases circulation. What I love is that it provides an instant massage for your face that plumps, hydrates and even firms. I always use these at the end of my treatments to cool and calm the skin but you can also use them at home as part of your regular skin care routine year round!
Here’s a few other amazing uses:
- Daily facial; cool your facial skin and muscle daily. It is like exercise for your skin, it helps maintain firmness.
- Instant pain relief for itchy skin, sore muscles, hot flashes, etc.
- Post cosmetic procedure inflammation
- Minor injuries, bruising, redness, irritation
- Eyes when you feel fatigue or puffiness
- Smooth skin for better makeup application.
- It’s great for men too! That after shave burn will fade away with this cool miracle massager.
PCASkin Retinol Treatments
Retinol is my go to favorite ingredient for all skin types and conditions and the right skincare products with retinol make fantastic gifts during the holiday season for anyone on your list. Using retinol products can help with ending pigmentation, fine lines, and acne while promoting collagen production. I recommend these two products by PCA to my clients because they contain pure retinol with phytic acid to promote an even skin tone and a clear complexion.
- Intensive Age Refining Treatment®: 0.5% pure retinol night serum
This nighttime treatment formulation combines 0.5% pure retinol paired with antioxidants and a host of beneficial ingredients to hydrate and soothe, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Intensive Clarity Treatment®: 0.5% pure retinol night serum
This nighttime treatment formulation pairs 0.5% pure retinol with phytic acid, phenylethyl resorcinol and gluconolactone to promote an even skin tone and a clear complexion.
