Dermatologist's recommendations for giving skin care this pandemic holiday season
Really good facial skin cleanser.
Did you know that facial skin cleansers are the #1 skin care product that people buy? It makes sense because any skin care routine works best when you start with clean skin!
I’ve got two favorite skin cleansing options:
- This cleansing combo works well for all complexions.
- I paired my lovely pH balanced Extremely Gentle Foaming Cleanser with my Naturally Hydrating Pore Minimizing Toner.
- Pleasurable and effective facial skin cleansing without every over drying.
- Ideal for everyone wanting to brighten their complexion and minimize clogged pores.
- I use this every morning and even my sensitive skin loves it!
- Pairs my Triple-Action Exfoliating Cleanser with my Naturally Hydrating Pore Minimizing Toner
- Helps unclog pores and gently exfoliates with both physical and chemical exfoliation because it blends 0.5% salicylic acid, 10% glycolic acid with eco-friendly beads.
- Tightens pores with my beautiful toner that blends organic witch hazel, Bulgarian rose hydrosol, glycerin and hyaluronic acid.
Pretty obsessed with this exfoliating scrub. My skin feels extra smooth and refreshed after use. This scrub perfectly preps my skin for makeup. Coupled with the Facial Toner, my skin has never been happier! Kelly
- A treat for your besties because skin soaks in the technological wonders of these two product formulations, yielding dewy, luscious facial skin.
- Fight crepey skin, dehydrated skin and winter skin stresses with one amazing combination.
- Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum is a uniquely fractionated hyaluronic acid-based serum to plump many layers of skin cells. Combined with sodium-PCA, an essential part of your skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor, and glycerin this formulation softens tight and dehydrated keratin protein in both living and dead cells to soften skin.
- Followed by Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy your skin’s essential antioxidant reserve is replenished, supporting skin resilience and soothing inflammation.
Going through menopause wreaked havoc on my skin. I went from somewhat oily skin to dry flaky skin. I tried many products before I found this wonderful combination. I use it twice daily along with the daily moisturizer. My complexion looks better now than it ever has. It’s smooth and my skin tone is even. Thank you, Dr. Bailey, Holly
This kit includes my info and instructions.
- I’ve covered the essential building blocks of a Complete Skin Care Routine that facial skin needs to thrive; 1) a really good yet non-irritating cleanser, 2) the best skin antioxidant for skin resilience, 3) the right moisturizer to fight dehydration, irritation and dryness, 4) the best invisible broad spectrum and non-irritating daily wear sunscreen.
- Everyone needs this kit – 4 steps in AM and 3 in PM support healthy and balanced facial skin.
- These 4 products will fit into all skin care routines, no matter what products your recipient already uses and loves.
I was amazed by the results I obtained with the use of this Complete Kit. In just 3 days using this kit; my Perioral Dermatitis started fading like magic and by the 2nd Mid-week it was all gone. The combinations of products and fresh ingredients works so well for my skin. The cleanse is so gentle and the Green tea antioxidant skin Therapy along with the Daily moisturizer was the perfect combination for my scaly, dry, itchy, and red skin. I totally recommend this kit, and I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Bailey for her work and contribution on these wonderful products. - Brisa
- This kit also includes info and instructions written by me, a Board Certified Dermatologist.
Everyone needs this right now at every sink in their home.
- The right hand soap for the millions of times a day we wash our hands, and
- the only non-greasy hand cream on the planet!
Seriously, I am not exaggerating. This economical gift is great for those people you want to give something thoughtful to that’s not too personal.
It’s also great to gift someone a kit for every bathroom and the kitchen – yourself included. - Dr. Bailey
Our pandemic has created a pandemic of dry and chapped hands and this feels like that thirst quenching drink of water on a hot day in the dessert, but for your hands.
- Skin aging shows up first around the eyes. Men see crow’s feet as the first sign of skin aging, as do young women in their early 20’s.
- Really, everyone benefits from an eye cream AND eyelid skin should not be treated like the rest of the face.
- As a dermatologist, I know that eyelid skin is structurally and physiologically unique and age-fighting skin care needs to be carefully crafted for this area. I’ve treated so much eyelid dermatitis over the years because of the unique sensitivity of the eyelid skin that I have a specially formulated age fighting eye cream.
My Advanced Corrective Eye Cream has the right amount of retinol for the eye area combined with ingredients to prevent dryness and fight puffiness, discoloration and puffiness.
I have used high end eye creams in the past and always go back to this one. It doesn't irritate, it’s not too rich that it just sits on the top on your skin, and it really does moisturize and help with fine lines. Thanks for making such great products!! Kristin
Recipients on your gift list that are skin care aficionados know the benefits of glycolic acid.
- My Glycolic Acid Facial Skin Care Kit is made with the purest professional strength glycolic acid and brightens dull skin almost instantly. I combine the perfect Glycolic Acid Face wash with a powerful Glycolic Acid Cream for the ‘wow’ effect.
- I include a great exfoliating facial sponge for those who also like a little physical exfoliation to brighten skin quickly.
- Works for dry, oily or normal complexions!
This is a NEW kit that I just made for winter beard care.
- I’ve combined Calming Zinc with Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy (this duo fights beardruff and facial redness) with my
- Omega Enriched Booster Oil to condition a man’s facial hair.
Enjoy healthy, soft facial hair free from annoying seasonal seborrhea with this simple but targeted skin care routine.
Last but far from least, soft body skin is just plain fun! Whether it’s when we touch our own arm or ‘shelter in place’ with our significant other on long cozy winter nights, it’s just nice to have soft elbows, arms etc.
- My Ultra-Fast Body Smoothing Kit works almost immediately.
- Soften dry rough body skin, keratosis pilaris, crusty age spots, rough elbows, you name it. This powerful product combo gets the results with as little as twice weekly use.
The glycolic acid body lotion is my favorite part of the ULTRA-FAST BODY SMOOTHING TRIPLE ACTION SKIN CARE KIT. It honestly does miracles to smooth, hydrate and (cue the heavenly music) tighten crepey skin. I saw 100%+ improvement in my skin in just a matter of weeks. THAT's the miracle I was looking for. I would recommend using the Salux cloth in the shower beforehand because exfoliating helps the product absorb into the skin and do its job. The Triple action exfoliating cleanser doubles as my facial cleaner of choice. I recommend this product 100 times over! Lori
