Everyone of any age or gender can benefit from skincare, which makes it one of the best things to put on your shopping list. Here are our top suggestions for skincare gifts to give away, plus tips for picking out the perfect skincare gifts for anyone:

Skincare Gifts for Moms

Whether it’s Mother’s Day or her birthday, skincare is the perfect gift for your mom. No matter your mom’s age, an anti-aging skincare routine is always a great choice to help prevent and treat signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. If your mom already has her daily skincare routine figured out, consider an add-on such as a weekly face peel or a hydrating mask that she can use as needed. She might also appreciate a skincare tool such as an at-home microdermabrasion pen that will help her maintain her results in between trips to the dermatologist or aesthetician.

Skincare Gifts for Older Women

If you have a grandmother or older aunt on your shopping list, skincare for wrinkles is always a good idea. If you have the budget for it, powerful treatments such as our LegacyTM line will help them to see faster results at home, thanks to cutting edge ingredients. You can also find more affordable options like our advanced line of skincare treatments, such as our Triple Peptides Drops and Active Rejuvenation Serum. 

If your older loved one is new to skincare, offer to come over for a girl’s night to demonstrate the products for her while spending quality time together. And if she loves to travel in her golden years, give her a skincare travel kit that will fit in her carry-on to make flying easier.

Skincare Gifts for Younger Women

Gone are the days when nobody worried about their skincare routine until they hit middle age: Younger generations are the driving force behind the expansion of the skincare industry. If you are shopping for younger women, such as your daughter or niece, consider getting her skincare products from a nicer brand than she would normally buy so she can pamper herself a little. You should also consider giving her an anti-aging sunscreen as a present, since wearing sunscreen every day is one of the most effective things that you can do to prevent signs of premature aging.

Skincare Gifts for Men

Who says that women should get all the benefits of skincare? While skincare is undoubtedly more popular among women, the truth is that men can benefit from it just as much as women. A simple 3-step skincare routine will help men to cleanse and nourish their skin while sunscreen will protect it from the elements. Men who shave regularly don’t need to exfoliate as much — the razor manually removes dead skin cells — but they do need to cleanse and moisturize every day just like anyone else.

Tips for Buying the Best Skincare Gifts

No matter who you’re shopping for, there is some advice to keep in mind when buying skincare gifts for other people. Here are our top tips for shopping for skincare gifts for other people:

  • Get to know their skincare preferences before deciding what to buy them. For instance, some people love heavily perfumed products, while others only use fragrance-free products. By prioritizing their preferences, you’re sure to pick skincare products they will love.
  • Fill in the gaps in their skincare routine by avoiding duplicate products. If they already own an exfoliator, then get them a face mask or a hydrating serum instead. This will ensure that your gifts get used right away rather than sitting in their medicine cabinet until they finish up their current products.
  • Order from their favorite brands when in doubt of what to buy. Odds are that if they loved one product from a brand, they will love their other items as well. You can always get skincare travel kits or smaller sample sizes if you don’t want to commit to full-size products.
  • Buy from reputable stores with good exchange policies so they can swap out the products if necessary. For instance, Lancer Skincare offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all products so that you can shop with confidence for both yourself and your gift recipients.

18 Skincare Gift Ideas for Any Occasion

18 Skincare Gift Ideas for Any Occasion

Everybody needs skincare in their lives, which is why skincare products and tools are the perfect gift idea. Whether you are shopping for a birthday gift for a beauty aficionado or a Christmas gift for a skincare newbie, there’s a product out there for them. We’ve rounded up the ultimate list of the best skincare gift ideas for any occasion — from glycolic acid peels to gua sha stones:

Facial Cleansers

Facial cleansers are the foundation of any skincare routine, which is why they’re a great choice for a present. Many people struggle with dry, dehydrated skin during the winter, making a calming milk or cream cleanser an excellent option. However, some people with very oily skin still prefer a gel or foaming cleanser for shine control, even in the colder months. Since you’re planning to give this as a gift, seek out a facial cleanser with elevated formulations and beneficial ingredients, such as those offered by Lancer Skincare.

Face Peels and Exfoliators

Face exfoliators and their stronger cousin, facial peels, aren’t usually a daily step for most people, but they are an important part of a weekly skincare routine. Even though lots of people cut back on exfoliating during the winter, lest it dries out their skin too much, regularly exfoliating with a quality product is still necessary for dissolving dry flakes and smoothing out skin texture. Peels and exfoliators should always be followed up with a moisturizer, which gives you an easy pairing to complement this gift.

anti-aging moisturizer

Moisturizers and Lotions

Even if your recipient has very oily skin, having an anti-aging moisturizer or lotion in their skincare routine is an absolute must during the wintertime. Thankfully, you can choose from formulations across a spectrum — from very lightweight gel cream that melts into the skin to heavy night creams that are designed to repair the skin barrier. Look for ceramides, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial ingredients to hydrate and moisturize the skin.

Shop for Anti-Aging Moisturizers

Facial Oils

Facial oils like our Omega Hydrating Oil, are by no means a required step in any skincare routine, but they can be a luxurious addition to the wintertime months, especially for people with dry skin. Facial oils help to form an occlusive barrier on your skin, preventing water loss and locking in your other facial products to make them even more effective. Many people also find the texture of facial oils much more pleasant to use than other alternatives such as petroleum jelly — plus, the oils instantly give the skin a glow. Your recipients can either mix the facial oil into their moisturizer or apply it alone as the last layer of their skincare routine.

Daily Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen every day (yes, even during the winter!) is the single best thing that you can do to fend off visible signs of aging — and who doesn’t want to give the gift of anti-aging? If your gift recipients haven’t yet joined the daily sunscreen train, consider presenting them with a highly wearable, non-greasy sunscreen such as those offered by Lancer Skincare. If they have darker skin, choose either a chemical sunscreen or a mineral sunscreen with a tint to avoid accidentally giving them a white cast, which will definitely not encourage them to keep wearing sunscreen.

Eye Care Products

While you can use most facial products on your eyes, it’s nice to have dedicated eye care products to make sure that the delicate skin around your eyes is getting the care that it needs. We especially enjoy using a luxurious eye cream in winter to ensure that our eyes stay hydrated and to protect against fine lines. If your recipients tend to wear a lot of makeup, also consider gifting them a dedicated eye makeup remover to make it much easier to wash their faces after a long day at work.

lip balms and masks

Lip Balms and Masks

The skin on your lips is pretty sensitive, and it’s also exposed to lots of irritants in the form of food, drinks, and cold weather. That’s one of the reasons your lips tend to be one of the first parts of your body to dry out and get chapped during cold and dry weather — and why lip balms and masks are one of the best skincare gift ideas. Lip balms are more for everyday use, while lip masks are designed for sleeping and feature a thicker texture and more nourishing ingredients to protect against water loss for a longer period of time.

Skincare Kits

Not sure what kinds of products your friend is missing from their skincare shelf? Skincare kits featuring mini-size products are a great solution that allows them to sample many different products without committing them to full-size bottles. Mini 3-step skincare kits are also incredibly convenient for travel since most of them are designed to pass TSA carry-on standards and take up very little room in a suitcase as a result. 

Get the 3-Step Method

Hand Cream

Your hands are prone to drying out and cracking when it’s cold, and you may also experience dry hands if you wash your hands frequently. No matter the time of year, it’s imperative to apply hand lotion every time you wash your hands and especially before you go to sleep at night. That’s also why hand cream is one of our go-to skincare gifts. Even if they already own some, they could always use another tube to keep in their purse, car console, or nightstand. Also, consider giving them a pair of gloves (if they don’t already own one) to protect their skin from the elements when they have to go out in inclement weather.

Reusable Eye Masks

Eye masks are the perfect addition to an extra-long Sunday evening skincare routine, and they can also reduce puffiness and eye bags first thing in the morning as well. We’re especially big fans of reusable eye masks, which can be used many times instead of having to be thrown out after one use. These eye masks are usually made of cooling gel and can be popped into the fridge or even the freezer for instant de-puffing benefits that will make your recipient look more awake in minutes.

face rollers

Face Rollers

Face rollers and globes are a skincare trend that’s here to stay, which is why they frequently top lists of the top skincare gift ideas. These skincare devices come in many designs—from jade face rollers to skin globes that can be chilled in the fridge before use. For a slight twist, consider a gua sha, which comes in various curved shapes that are especially suited to the face. Not only are these tools cooling and soothing, but many people claim that they help skincare products absorb better and also promote lymphatic drainage.

LED Face Wand or Mask

Many dermatologist offices now offer LED (light emitting diode) treatments to help treat acne, fine wrinkles, and more. While at-home LED tools don’t offer the same potency, they can result in benefits with consistent use over time. LED skincare tools come in wand and mask models, depending on your recipient’s needs. Wands are more portable and more affordable, but they take longer to treat the whole face, making them better for targeted treatments. LED face masks are more expensive and take up more space, but they require less time to treat your entire face and neck.

Microdermabrasion Tools

Microdermabrasion involves sanding off the top, uneven layer of skin to reveal smoother, newer-looking skin underneath. While in-office treatments are the most effective, you can also see results with at-home microdermabrasion tools like the one offered by Lancer Skincare. These tools allow you to do light microdermabrasion in the comfort of your own home whenever it is convenient for you, making it easy to stick to a consistent schedule that will help you see results eventually. The at-home treatment requires little to no downtime (unlike office treatment), and many people see visible results immediately.

Skincare Fridge

A skincare fridge is truly a gift for the person who owns everything. While a skincare fridge is by no means necessary for an effective skincare routine, it does keep your products and tools at a pleasantly cool temperature. A dedicated skincare mini fridge is way more hygienic than putting your skincare in your regular fridge with all the food. Look for a small, energy-efficient model that won’t take up too much counter space. For bonus points, choose a design and color that will complement their existing bathroom decor for a harmonious addition.

Silk Pillowcase

If your friend struggles with pillow scars in the morning that won’t go away for hours, consider gifting them some real silk pillowcases. The smooth finish of silk is easy on the skin and won’t cause creases, so your recipients will wake up looking fresh even if they’re side sleepers. As an added bonus, silk pillowcases are also great for preserving hairstyles because they don’t catch and snag the hair the way that more textured fabrics do, making this a two-in-one gift perfect for friends who are obsessed with all things beauty.

facial steamer or humidifier

Facial Steamer or Humidifier

A steam facial is an easy way to open up your pores and help yourself relax. While the old “pour boiling water in a shallow bowl” trick always works, you can elevate your friend’s steam facial routine by giving them an at-home facial steamer that makes the whole process as easy as pushing a button. Consider a humidifier that puts moisture back into the air for a slightly more versatile gift. This is a must for dry climates and can be a real savior for seriously cracked skin that isn’t responding to topical products alone.

Looking for high-quality skincare products to give to your friends, family, and other loved ones? At Lancer Skincare, we offer premium products featuring tried-and-tried ingredients and effective formulations developed by celebrity dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer. All of our orders come with free, fast shipping within the United States so that you can rest assured you will get your gifts on time!
