The holiday season is around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning your holiday wishlist. Whether you’re in need of new skincare items or something that’ll help you relax, you could benefit from some of the beauty products in this article. Here are five items you should consider asking for this holiday season:
1. Anti-Aging Products
Aging is a natural process, but that doesn’t make it enjoyable. With aging comes wisdom, but it can also come with wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and a rough skin texture. All of these are symptoms you probably don’t want to experience. Luckily, there are beauty products that can help combat aging skin.
One product in particular is tretinoin. A generic version of Retin-A (a form of retinol that is suitable for your skin), this product is used to treat skin aging. It’s also prescribed for issues related to sun damage, like hyperpigmentation, redness, and loss of skin tone.
Tretinoin comes in three strengths. The lowest strength is typically the best place to start to ensure the product works for your skin. The better you tolerate the product, the more likely you’ll be prescribed the stronger strengths. It’s important to note that anti-aging products don’t just have to be used by older people. These products can be preventative and used when you’re younger to prevent the effects of aging down the road.
2. Silk Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases have recently garnered a great deal of popularity, for several reasons. For one, silk is better for your skin than other materials, like cotton. Cotton pillowcases soak up the dirt and oil from your face and hair. This means you’re essentially sleeping on a pillow filled with bacteria. To put this in even more perspective, according to a study pillowcases have 17 thousand times more bacteria than toilet seats.
Silk, on the other hand, is a cleaner sleep surface. Silk absorbs less moisture and dirt than cotton and causes less friction and drying to your skin. In short, silk pillowcases are more gentle on your skin, making them a better option. Since silk pillowcases absorb less, they’re ideal for those who have acne or sensitive skin.
Silk pillowcases are also better for your hair. Again, this is due to its frictionless surface. By sleeping on a silk pillowcase it’s less likely you’ll experience damage to your hair, and hopefully be able to prolong its sleekness.
3. Makeup Eraser
Do you wear makeup? Then you could definitely benefit from some type of makeup remover, like the original makeup eraser. According to the website, this makeup eraser is equivalent to 3600 makeup wipes, making it a sustainable product.
If you’ve ever used ordinary makeup wipes you know how wasteful they are. Since they can only be used once, makeup wipes end up being flushed or thrown away. From there, they make their way into oceans or other bodies of water and are harmful to sea life.
Besides helping the environment, this makeup eraser can do wonders on your skin. As you probably know, leaving makeup on your skin creates build-up that can cause acne. It can also transfer to your pillowcase and sheets. And unless you immediately wash them, that build-up will transfer to your skin every time you lay down, even after you wash your face. If that’s not reason enough to include a makeup eraser in your skin regimen, what is?!
4. Hydrating Moisturizer
Using a daily moisturizer is an absolute must for achieving healthy skin. Moisturizers help maintain your skin’s moisture barrier, preventing damage to your skin. Essentially, if you’re not using a moisturizer, you’re leaving your skin vulnerable to the environment. That’s why you should consider adding a moisturizer to your holiday wishlist.
With that said, you want to be careful when applying products to your skin. It’s important the product is actually suitable for your skin type. For instance, if you have dry skin, use a moisturizer designed for dry skin. If you have oily skin, use a moisturizer designed for oily skin.
Even after doing your research, make sure you do a skin test before applying it to your face. Simply apply the product to your arm or wrist and leave it there for about 24 hours. This should be enough time for you to notice any negative effects like flaking or redness. If nothing happens, go ahead and apply the product to your face.
5. Spa Robe
If you don’t have a bathrobe, go ahead and add it to your holiday wishlist. Robes aren’t just comfy, they protect your skin and help you dry off after a shower or bath. Recently, robes have become quite stylish, making them a go-to option when you’re lounging around your home.
It’s important to note that not every robe is created the same. So, you want to make sure you’re asking for the right one. Organic, Turkish, and cloud cotton are a few high-quality robe materials. All three are soft, comfy, and stay fresh. Not to mention, because of their quality, you’ll be able to wear the material long-term.
Another benefit to using a bathrobe is it can help relax you, especially if it’s on the heavier side. Have you heard of a weighted blanket? Unlike traditional, lightweight blankets, weighted ones are therapeutic. They are known to reduce anxiety and can assist individuals with autism, dementia, and other mental health conditions. Heavy bathrobes can have a similar impact to these weighted blankets.
The beauty products above won’t just help you maintain clear and healthy skin. They can also help you feel less anxious and more confident in your overall appearance. What better gift could you receive this holiday season?
