Gifts for Your Valentine or Your Galentine
Whether you’re coupled up for Valentine’s Day, celebrating Galentine’s Day with friends, or honoring yourself via random acts of self-love, you’ve probably thought about gifts. Chocolate, jewelry and flowers are up there as classic presents, but you can always go a step farther and think outside the Valentine’s Day box. This holiday is essentially a day for pampering and indulging in beauty rituals—which is why we’re recommending the best skincare gifts for Valentine’s Day that people can use at any time at home.
Mix and match what you think your lucky recipient will love!
A great choice for regular exfoliation that will help drastically improve the appearance of skin’s texture, the ORMEDIC gel polisher includes pomegranate enzymes, olive pit powder and bamboo spheres that team up to fully polish skin by removing dead skin cells and dullness. Skin texture looks more refined and smoother with regular use. This polisher also includes caviar lime extract, a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids, that gently exfoliates chemically to further remove impurities, helping to soften the appearance of rough texture and wrinkles. You can use this 1-3 times a week depending on your skin needs.
Exfoliation is crucial in helping maintain soft, healthy and refined skin. It’s an important step in any skincare routine, but if you have very sensitive skin you can limit your exfoliating to about once a week.
Thanks to vitamin C, this signature anti-aging serum works to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots, while helping to support collagen-deprived skin by making it look firmer and tauter. It also protects against oxidative damage brought on by free radicals, unstable atoms that attack cells throughout the body, including skin cells, causing visible signs of premature aging. This is an IMAGE bestselling product because it makes a huge difference in improving your overall glow. You’re left with a bright, luminous complexion—what more would someone want on Valentine’s Day?
Skin can easily become dull and fatigued from sun exposure, lack of sleep, smoking and regular exposure to pollution. This hydrating mask can help reduce all visible signs of exhaustion and dullness by packing a punch of moisture that will help revive skin with amino acids, aloe vera, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is especially great because it holds 1,000 times its weight in water and helps keep skin plump, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. The hydrogel designs also fits better onto the contours of the face, ensuring a firm grip.
Perfect for Valentine’s Day dates, the Ormedic tinted lip formula is ultra-hydrating thanks to a polypeptide formula that helps minimize appearance of fine lines, plumps up the look of lips so they look naturally full and offers a slight pop of color. Ingredients include avocado oil for maximum hydration and prevention of cracking and drying, as well as vitamin E to provide antioxidant support and aid in conditioning. Lips become kissably soft and beautifully pillowy with daily use.
Any thorough skincare routine would greatly benefit from collagen supplements. Growing in popularity in recent years, collagen supplements continue to help improve the appearance of skin from within. A number of studies have shown the benefits of ingesting collagen to help firm up skin, support collagen synthesis and minimize the appearance of wrinkles overall.
Collagen is an important protein that gives skin its structure, keeps it firm and prevents the appearance of common signs of aging. By taking collagen peptides, you can help prevent collagen loss that is inevitable and tends to begin after one’s thirtieth birthday. Collagen loss is gradual, but you can help slow down the process by taking supplements. The YANA collagen shots are meant to be taken daily to help increase the appearance of firmness, elasticity and moisture retention – all important factors in keeping skin looking youthful. This formula also contains vitamin C, biotin, vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid, which help brighten, support skin strength and provide hydration. The antioxidant complex features hyaluronic acid, green tea leaf extract and pomegranate fruit extract to protect against oxidative stress. To use, take one serving every morning. Follow up with a drink of water or smoothie/fruit juice for best results.
