We love to invest money in skin care not only to look good but also because the skin care routine became a health issue since the number of people with skin cancer increased. That’s why a great gift to give your mom on Mother’s Day is a skin care kit that will help her take care of her skin. We tell you the ingredients to look for and what benefits they will give her:
5 Skin Care Gifts for Mother’s Day
1. A Good Sunscreen
Let’s face it, generations like X or earlier don’t have it in their chip to put on sunscreen constantly, but it’s never too late to do so. So invest in good sunscreen for your mom so she’ll be motivated to use it every day. An ideal option is one with a light texture and protection against photoaging.
2. Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is not only taken but is also smeared on the skin and is a very good antioxidant ingredient that brightens the skin and protects the skin against UV damage. This is very important because sun damage and oxidative damage are the main factors that accelerate aging.
It is very important that if you give a vitamin C serum to your mom, emphasize to her that she should use it in the morning and never forget the sunscreen, because if she puts it on alone, it could cause spots; so it is better to give her a complete kit.
3. Retinol Cream
If hyaluronic acid was popular, retinol came to take the spotlight. This ingredient is anti-aging par excellence and is recommended by dermatologists for all skin stages because it is composed of vitamin A, which has many benefits. Among its graces is that it promotes skin renewal, increases collagen production, and smoothes fine lines.
Retinol works by stimulating collagen production and improving skin elasticity, making it perfect, for example, for reducing crow’s feet or expression lines around the mouth.
Very important: Retinol can be an ingredient that feels different on your mom’s skin, so we recommend putting it on every other day. Also, it should ALWAYS be used at night.
4. Eye Contour
One of the first signs of age or fatigue is dark circles and wrinkles, so an eye contour is perfect to include in a gift kit for mom. To treat puffiness and bags, we recommend an eye cream with caffeine, hyaluronic acid, cucumber, or yeast extract to deflate and dehydrate fat cells and ingredients to treat pigmentation.
5. A Mask Kit
It never hurts to treat them to an afternoon at the movies, with food, snacks, and skincare included. If you plan to make it a whole experience for your mom, give her a face mask kit along with the experience of being pampered all day long. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which helps to leave an incredible glow on the skin because it hydrates it, or Centella Asiatica, which is an antioxidant, a source of amino acids, and has a calming effect, perfect for before bedtime.
