There’s always something special about the holiday season, and I believe part of that feeling comes from the spirit of giving. I personally believe that the best gifts are the ones that keep on giving - and keep your friends and family glowing.
In the spirit of the holiday season, I compiled a list of our favorite stocking stuffers that will keep your loved ones glowing year-round. Whether your loved one is a traveler, an outdoor adventurer, a skincare newbie or a skincare junkie, PFAM has something for everyone.
For the Forever Young
We all have a forever young friend - the life of the party, the one who does it all, everyone’s best friend. Help them keep their skin looking as young as their personality with the gift of Perfect Change Serum. This serum combines the powerful anti-aging benefits of retinol with the skin resurfacing ability of TCA to improve and maintain skin tone and texture. Retinol also prevents collagen breakdown and stimulates new collagen, which softens fine lines, refines pores and provides a more youthful appearance. Plus: if your Secret Santa is on a budget, Perfect Change Serum is offered in a mini size for only $49! It’s the magic serum for your magic friend.
For the Millennial
It’s important for individuals of all ages - here’s looking at you, 20-year-olds - to make SPF their BFF as soon as possible. No one wants premature skin aging, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. Help your younger friends and family learn about the importance of daily SPF application with the gift of Sheer Protection - my favorite daily translucent SPF 50+ in a cream or spray.
For the Jet-Setting Traveler
When we travel, we are exposed to recirculated, dry air on an airplane, hotel beauty products, diet changes and stress. Needless to say, it’s important to take care of your skin amidst these conditions! Give your loved ones the gift of travel-ready skincare with the Mini Serum Sampler - four 5 mL of C Glow, X5 Skin Renewal Serum, Total Repair Serum and Liquid Gold. No matter their skin concerns, this set is the perfect addition to their TSA-friendly beauty lineup.
For the Sun-kissed Surfer
For your loved one that’s always out on the water, I recommend gifting theAvasol Stick 50+ SPF - a daily sunscreen stick that helps protect against premature aging and sunburns and reduces the risk of cancer by half. This stick might be small, but it is mighty (and convenient for those who travel light)! The water-resistant Avasol Stick utilizes natural, organic or wildcrafted raw ingredients to protect against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB rays so you and your loved ones can feel safe about their skin’s health when they jet out to sea.
For the Makeup Maven
The rumor is true: removing your makeup before bed is incredibly important. While you sleep, skin regenerates - shedding dead cells and cycling them out for new ones. Makeup impedes this natural exfoliation, leading to increased skin dullness over time. Drop Dewpuffs in your girlfriends’ stockings as a nightly reminder to remove their makeup, cleanse their skin and leave their face feeling soft and radiant. These sponges are made from konjac root, which has a natural ability to break down dirt and promote circulation. Even better: while these sponges gently exfoliate, they prevent small tears in the skin, unlike traditional washcloths. Your makeup maven will be looking better than ever - dolled up and makeup-free.
For the Skincare Newbie
The Perfect Gift Box is the perfect stocking stuffer for loved ones that may be intimidated and overwhelmed by the vast amount of skincare options out there. This gift box offers a simple five-step regimen - Cleanse, X5 Skin Renewal Serum, VitaMoist, Shade, Eye Rx - for a brighter and more even complexion. It’s the perfect starter kit for the skincare newbie with any skin type. Even better: this kit includes travel-size products (with the exception of a full-size Eye Rx) so your loved ones can keep their new skincare game strong on the road during their 2019 travels.
For the PFAM’er who has everything
If your loved one is an active skincare junkie who seems to have it all (including an active nightly retinol regime), give them the gold standard of stocking stuffers: Liquid Gold. This intensive collagen accelerator packs a punch in a tiny bottle, helping to restore and refine the skin’s elasticity and brilliance. There’s a reason it’s name came to be.
If you can't pick between products, I always suggest a PFAM Gift Card so your loved one can pick the product of their choice.
I won’t tell you if you stuff your own stocking with these goodies this year too...
Happy holidays and a happy New Year, PFAMily!
All my best,
