The holidays can be a tough time for your skin. The sudden change in temperature combined with the common overindulgence you experience around the holidays can mean that your skin will see the impact of the holidays first. While I really emphasize that clean eating is the best path to clean skin, I understand that it can be hard to accomplish this time of year.
Nevertheless, I have some great recommendations for gifts that will help any natural beauty lover get through the holidays with a healthy glow. Below, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite ways to tackle holiday skin care that make great gifts for the natural beauty lover in your life. I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do.
A Vitamin C Fizz
During these winter months it can be hard to manage to stay healthy in the cold weather. A Vitamin C boost, like the one available on The Spa Dr. website is a tasty way to get a healthy dose of Vitamin C.
Extra Nourishment For Hair
I understand that the holiday season can be a time when you’ll overindulge, meaning that you may end up lacking in key nutrients and vitamins that contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails. The Spa Dr.’s Skin, Hair, & Nail Support is a supplement that provides the necessary building blocks for strong and healthy skin, hair and nails.
These bars are a great way to indulge without feeling guilty. Skip the holiday sweets and snack on these sugar free, gluten free and dairy free dark chocolate coconut bars that have the rich, decadent flavor you’re craving during the holidays. The dark chocolate flavor is delicious, and they’re made with some great ingredients so you don’t have to fool guilty.
A Winter SPF
Many people don’t realize that your skin can greatly benefit from SPF all year long. While using an SPF is particularly important during the summer months, when you’re more likely to be out and about, it’s just as important in the winter. I live in Utah, where we’re known for our snow. The snow can nearly double the exposure that the sun’s harmful UV rays have on your skin, making it important to wear SPF on any skin that gets exposed during the winter months.
I recommend using an SPF made with zinc oxide and natural ingredients, such as the MyChelle Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30. This will work to deeply hydrate the skin while providing protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Organic Essential Oils
There are countless benefits to using essential oils in your daily life, which is why they make fantastic gifts and stocking stuffers. Essential oils can be a natural alternative to synthetic fragrances in skin care products. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to your skin care or look for skin care products already containing essential oils, such as The Spa Dr.’s Step 2 Antioxidant Serum.
It’s important to make sure that you’re buying all-natural and organic essential oils. I recommend checking out my guide to using essential oils in order to make sure you’re gifting the best products.
Pearl & Rose Petal Facial Exfoliant
This pearl & rose petal facial exfoliant is perhaps one of the most luxurious products in The Spa Dr. collection of organic skin care products. Natural rose water and rose petals work together to gently exfoliate the skin to leave it feeling smooth and bright. Natural rose essential oil also adds a great scent to the product, making it a perfect gift for anyone looking to relax and treat themselves to a luxurious, brightening facial.
Did you know that collagen is one of the building blocks of healthy skin, nails and hair? It can help improve elasticity in the skin and help make hair appear shiny while making your nails stronger.
Natural, Nourishing Lip Color
Harsh winter climates are hard on the skin, but your lips need some extra attention during these dry months too. All natural, nourishing lip colors such as these make great gifts for anyone, not just natural beauty lovers. The lip colors contain a variety of organic ingredients that will soothe dry lips and leave them feeling hydrated and smooth. The touch of tint will also have a beautiful, radiant effect.
The Daily Essentials Collection
If the natural beauty lover in your life could use something a bit bigger than the Sample Kit, then I suggest the collection of the Daily Essentials. This collection is particularly special because it’s a 4-step skin care system made with organic and natural ingredients.
Each product in this collection works to carefully balance the skin’s pH while providing nourishment and protection against harsh environments like pollution or dry, cold winter air. The natural ingredients in my 4-step skin care system work together to improve the skin’s natural microbiome and promote graceful, beautiful aging.
This collection also makes a great gift throughout the year, as you’ll have the option to autoship the product every 4 or 6 weeks. When you opt into the autoship membership, you’ll also receive a membership to my VIP program. The program offers a lot of invaluable benefits and access to a community focused on achieving clean skin from within.
A Spa Dr. Gift Certificate
If you’re not sure what to get the natural beauty lover in your life, a gift certificate for products at The Spa Dr. is a great way to show your love and appreciation too. You can choose from gift increments between $10 and $200. There is a huge variety of products available to choose from, so you’ll be able to find something for just about anyone.
