The Ultimate Skincare Gift Guide: The Best Products to Give This Year for Every Skin Type

If you’ve hit a wall in the holiday gift shopping process, we’re here to help! After a busy season of traveling, keeping up with a busy social calendar, and overindulging in some festive treats and alcoholic drinks – all of which can wreak havoc on your complexion! – anyone will appreciate the gift of skincare. Whether you’re gifting to a long-time skincare expert or someone who is just beginning their skincare journey, we’ll recommend some of the best products to give this holiday season. 

Different Types of Skin Types

The first step in shopping for a skincare gift is understanding the different skin types. Here’s a quick guide to the five different categories: 

  • Dry Skin: Dry skin produces less sebum (your skin’s natural oils) than other skin types, which means it’s prone to roughness, flakiness, dullness, and a general feeling of dehydration. 
  • Oily Skin: On the opposite end of the spectrum is oily skin, a skin type that produces an excess of sebum. This can lead to shine, and for many can be a big contributor to acne. 
  • Combination Skin: Combination skin sits somewhere in between oily and dry skin types. Someone with combination skin will experience oiliness in some areas of the face (typically the nose, chin, and forehead), but dryness in other areas (typically the cheeks and jaw). 
  • Sensitive Skin: Sensitive skin is more easily irritated than other skin types. This skin type is prone to redness, itchiness, and a burning sensation in the complexion. 
  • Normal Skin: Finally, there’s normal skin, which isn’t too oily, too dry, or overly prone to irritation. 

    Small Batch Serums

    Top Products Depending On Your Recipient’s Skin Needs

    Beyond knowing their skin type, it’s important to consider your gift recipient’s skincare goals. Maybe they’re looking to boost radiance to achieve a healthy glow, or maybe they want to douse their skin with extra hydration to banish dryness once and for all. 

    Not quite sure what they’d like? We’ll break down the top three products that anyone and everyone can benefit from adding to their routine. Bonus: all of these serums were created to be safe for all skin types (including sensitive skin!), making them a suitable gift to give to anyone, even if you don’t know their exact skin type. 

    Hyaluronic Acid Serum

    Hyaluronic acid is the key to achieving plump, hydrated skin. This humectant attracts moisture to the skin and locks it in, ensuring the skin stays soft and supple all day long. Its plumping power also helps soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, by improving the skin’s moisture retention abilities, hyaluronic acid is able to support a healthy skin barrier. 

    Hyaluronic acid is gentle on the skin and plays well with virtually all other ingredients, which means it’s a super easy ingredient to work into an already established skincare routine. Not quite sure what your friend or family member’s daily regime looks like? They’ll have no trouble adding hyaluronic acid to their routine! 

    The Hyaluronic Pure Boost Serum is always a hit for people with dry skin, but keep in mind thateveryonecould use an extra boost of hydration and skin barrier support. Thankfully, this versatile serum is lightweight enough for even the oiliest of skin, and gentle enough for sensitive skin!

    CoQ10 Serum

    Want to impress the skincare aficionado in your life? Gift them a CoQ10 serum. CoQ10 (AKA coenzyme Q10) may not be the most well-known skincare ingredient, but it’s quickly rising in popularity. 

    This enzyme has potent antioxidant properties, which means it can help defend the complexion against damaging free radicals. It also softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production, and can help promote a brighter, more even skin tone. In short, it’s a multi-tasking ingredient that anyone can use in their routine. 

    As an added bonus, the CoQ10 Boost Serum is formulated with additional clean, highly effective ingredients that further work to calm, protect, and hydrate the skin for a comfortable and healthy complexion.

    Vitamin C Serum

    The amazing thing about vitamin C is that it offers an impressive range of science-backed benefits, which is what makes it one of the gold-standard ingredients for all skin types. 

    Anyone looking to reduce and prevent signs of aging will love both the antioxidant properties and the collagen-boosting effects of vitamin C. Those dealing with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (the discolored marks left behind after a blemish heals) or sun damage can benefit from the vitamin’s ability to promote a more skin tone. Of course, virtually anyone will also enjoy the boost in radiance they experience from regularly using a vitamin C serum in their routine. 

    The Vitamin C Boost Serum has a clean formula that is thoughtfully made with supporting ingredients to ensure the best possible results. Ferulic acid and vitamin E boost the vitamin C’s ability to improve the skin while also providing their own antioxidant benefits, while additional ingredients soothe and hydrate.
