It’s glow time!

For a skincare enthusiast, receiving anything that can take them a step closer to their glow up goals could easily make their day. This wonderful season, why not surprise them with beauty products they can add to their self-care routine? It’s a good idea to do so, especially with the current pandemic that highly encourages all of us to stay home. 

Need some recos? Here's a Christmas gift guide for the glow-getters in your life.

If they're only kicking off their skincare routine, you can get them the AHC face masks from its Natural Essential Mask line, Vidal Medica Mask line, or the AHC Premium Hydra Gold Foil Mask. If you’re a budget-conscious gift giver, you can get them in individual sheets. But if you consider yourself a generous one, you can buy them a bundle that contains all its variants!

Now more than ever, it’s important to wash our hands to protect ourselves from infection of any kind. As your friends do so, make sure their hands would get the care they need with the Love Beauty and Planet Liquid Handwash line! Available in Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Petal Soft Handwash, Coconut Oil and Ylang Ylang Tropical Fresh Handwash, Murumuru Butter and Belgian Rose Majestic Moisture Handwash, and Tea Tree Oil and Vetiver Pure and Positive Handwash, each product is not only gentle for the hands, but also for our Mother Earth.

There are beauty products that may require cotton for application, so why not amp up your present and include Cleene? This brand “guarantees superior absorbency and softness to keep their skin clean.”

The Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance collection uses GentleBright Technology, which is “a combination of Sea Daffodil and Niacinamide that visibly corrects dark spots without irritation, boosts brightness, and evens skin tone in 4 weeks.” A box of Cetaphil’s Brightness Reveal Creamy Cleanser, Brightness Refresh Toner, Daily Brightening Protection Cream SPF15, Brightening Night Comfort Cream, Brightening Lotion, Brightness Reveal Body Wash, and Brightness Reveal Bar will surely make them happy this season!
