Skincare Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Beauty Gifts for Everyone on Your List

The holiday season is upon us, and regardless of how you feel about it, you likely have a list of people to shop for. In an effort to save you time and stress (because we have enough of that during the season!), we’ve created a skincare gift guide – a helpful list of top-rated beauty gifts that are not only going to surprise and delight those on the receiving end but will also make you feel good about gifting them!

These ALASTIN Skincare gift ideas are clinically tested and proven to produce results, but don't take our word for it (although you can see the before and after images for yourself). Hear straight from dermatologists about their favorite ALASTIN skincare products.

For the Mom or Mother-In-Law on Your List


Restorative Neck Complex with Christmas Ornaments

Because moms are prone to giving extra tight hugs and have likely spent years dedicating their time and money to caring for their families, they may have neglected their own beauty regimen. Even if mom found the time to develop her personal facial skincare regimen, she may have neglected her neck and décolleté, which can lead to unwanted crepey skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Healthcare providers and skincare experts recommend the ALASTIN Skincare Restorative Neck Complex with TriHex Technology® because it “delivers an elegant, hydrating treatment that firms the neck and helps to correct underlying sun damage in the delicate area. The histologic and clinical evidence speaks for itself. There is nothing else I could ask for of this miracle cream from ALASTIN.” - Dr. Janelle Vega, Mayoral Dermatology in Miami, FL.

And let’s face it, moms are often the worst at treating themselves, so treat her this holiday!

For the Low-Maintenance Man Who Likes to Look Good

Restorative Eye Treatment and HydraTint Pro Mineral Sunscreen with stocking

It’s no secret that women spend exponentially more time and money to ensure a youthful, healthy glow. But as more and more men have learned, having healthy skin can help you look younger and truly affect your overall appearance, and it’s not rocket science, but it is science.

Meaning that he can’t just slap on the nearest grease he finds in the garage to stay moisturized, and he shouldn’t just reach for whatever product he finds in his wife’s beauty arsenal to check the “skincare” box for the week.

Help him out by presenting him with one of our favorite men's skincare gifts: with Restorative Eye Treatment with TriHex Technology®, a customer favorite among both men and women created to reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It’s a low-maintenance skincare product with nothing but upside for the man in your life.

Dr. John Jennings of the Goldsboro Skin Center in Goldsboro, NC, shares his experience with the Restorative Eye Treatment, saying, "I can truly say the ALASTIN Restorative Eye Treatment is a great product and has made a great difference in my undereye area. I typically had very bad undereye areas, and I could see a significant difference in just a few weeks. Now that I have seen what the eye cream can do, I would not want to be without it! Great product!"

For Your Best Friend Who Deserves the Best

Restorative Skin Complex in Hand

Our friends are really the MVPs of the year. They’re with us through thick and thin, and year after year, they prove just how important they are to us. For that reason - and so many others - your BFF deserves something extra special for the holiday.

Treat your friend to one of the most thoughtful skincare gifts for her: Restorative Skin Complex with TriHex Technology®from ALASTIN Skincare. “While no skincare is the ‘Holy Grail,’ ALASTIN Restorative Skin Complex has been one of the most impressive skincare products I have ever recommended to my patients,” according to Dr. Mark Rubin. And he’s not alone.

Dr. Matthew Elisa, DO, FAAD of Elias Dermatologist in Ft. Lauderdale, FL shared his patients' experience with the Restorative Skin Complex:

"ALASTIN Restorative Skin Complex is a best-in-class anti-aging skincare product that uniquely helps the skin’s natural ability to produce elastin and collagen, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, plumping the skin, and helping prevent further damage. It is a product that should be used by all patients both regularly, as well as pre- and post-procedure to augment and maintain their treatment results. Patients expect to look fantastic from their aesthetic treatments and skincare, and the ALASTIN Restorative Skin Complex is the best at yielding unbelievably fantastic, vibrant, and youthful-looking skin!"

This multi-purpose, anti-aging skincare powerhouse has been featured in NewBeauty and Shape Magazine, just to name a few, and is consistently one of the top-selling ALASTIN products.

For the Gen Z on Your List

Renewal Retinol .25 and .5 with hand and pumpkins

Truth be told, Renewal Retinol is for everyone on your list, but it’s one of the best skincare gifts for any of the youths you need to shop for who are just discovering early signs of aging skin like uneven skin tone from those days spent soaking in the sun or the beginnings of forehead lines and wrinkles from all of that worrying over college debt.

And don’t fret! While retinol could be considered a tricky product to gift to someone else - mostly due to retinol formulas that cause irritations and adverse effects - the ALASTIN Skincare Renewal Retinol is encapsulated in a solid lipid to improve the delivery of retinol to aid the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. It is known to be one of the most sensitive skin-friendly formulations by healthcare providers, and it is typically well-tolerated by most skin types.

For Your Neighbor or Gal’s Gift Exchange

Gentle Cleanser, Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer, HydraTint with ornaments

It’s in the name – it’s gentle, and it’s a cleanser. Everyone needs it and can use it. So, for anyone on your holiday shopping list that you don’t know well or aren’t sure what to buy for, this can make a wonderful face care gift!

The ALASTIN Skincare Gentle Cleanser is a self-foaming cleanser that removes impurities without drying or irritating the skin. It’s rated 5 stars and is a favorite among healthcare providers for daily use, and it can even be used before and after most skincare procedures.

For Your Coworker or the Boss You Want to Impress

HydraTint and Restorative Eye Treatment with white trees

Everyone should be using sunscreen daily. If they’re not, and you inform them of this basic skincare rule, you’ve already done your part to give the gift of beauty!

Go one step further and give your coworker or boss the gift of the beauty editor-approved tinted sunscreen that will have them glowing into the new year!

HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 protects skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, shields against environmental pollution, and provides a tint with a soft glow for perfect-looking skin. Some choose to use this under their makeup, and some have done a full swap of their foundation for this multi-purpose sunscreen. Plus, this particular sunscreen was recently featured in Vogue, Shape, and Byrdie, so you know it’ll impress the boss and maybe lock in that bonus for next quarter.

Dr. Shari Topper from DermPartners in Boca Raton, FL, shares her love of HydraTint:

"Wow, ALASTIN! You hit the nail on the head with your new HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36! It's a moisturizer, foundation, and broad-spectrum sun protector all in one, and the best part ... it glows! The mineral shimmer is absolutely gorgeous. You just cut my morning regimen in half. Thank you, ALASTIN!"
