I’m a Taurus. So, if I know anything, it’s self-care. After the year (and especially week!) we’ve all had, giving your friends and family a little nudge towards some de-stressing this holiday season is almost a necessity. Here are some gift ideas for someone you love who might need a little R&R!
1. Jade De-Puffing Face Roller from Herbivore. Yes, hands are magical, but they can only do so much! If you stick your jade roller in the fridge overnight, wake up, wash your face, slap on your favorite serum, and roll it in… *chef’s kiss*. Rolling will de-puff your face and promote circulation. This particular roller has one end for the larger parts of your face and one end for under the eyes and other small crevices. I’m sure someone in your life needs a little help with de-puffing in the morning before a day of Zoom meetings!
2. Acure Radically Rejuvenating Under Eye Hydrogels. Stocking stuffer alert! After a week of losing some sleep (Election stress is too real!), I have some serious under-eye bags. I put these eye gels on, laid back, and turned my brain off for 15 minutes. I felt like I had a full spa experience right on my couch. BONUS POINTS if you use the smaller end of the jade roller to gently rub the remaining serum into your skin once you’ve removed the gels. These are vegan & paraben/silicone/cruelty free, which definitely matters to the skincare fanatics in your life.
3. Fisher’s Finery 100% Silk Pillowcase. Want to make someone feel more royal than usual? This silk pillowcase has you covered. Silk is not only a stylish addition to a bedspread, it has a handful of beauty benefits, such as reducing wrinkles, breakouts, dry skin, frizzy hair, and split ends. You’re basically gifting someone healthy hair & skin… the ultimate self-care night continues into bedtime!
4. Fenty Skin Starter Set. If you’ve got a Rihanna fan in the family, they’re sure to love her skincare line! This starter set includes travel/trial size versions of her Total Cleans’r (Cleanser), Fat Water (Toner), and Hydra Vizor (2-in-1 sunscreen-moisturizer). All the products are vegan, cruelty-free, and in recyclable packaging. And, from experience, they smell AMAZING. Nothing feels better than taking your time to feed your skin during your routine every night, especially with the dry winter air creeping up on us!
