Giving the Gift of Skin Care for the Holidays

During the holiday season, skin care products are often a popular gift. At Skin Essentials here in Sydney, we offer vouchers that your loved ones can use to purchase a skin care consult, services from our physical clinic, or items from our ecommerce store. Some of the skin care products that you purchase from other sellers can sometimes contain ingredients that are not friendly for your skin. Let’s take a look at why we suggest gift vouchers as the perfect gift for your loved ones.

Skin Care Needs To Be Personalised

Many people often will purchase skin care products for their loved ones or a gift voucher for a particular service at a spa or skin care clinic. The gift of a voucher from Skin Essentials is extremely beneficial because it lets your loved one get the exact skin care service that they need. The benefits of personalised skin care include:

  • There is not a one size fits all skin care solution: Each person’s skin is different. At Skin Essentials, all skin care solutions start with an initial consultation to determine the right type of treatments that a person needs for healthier skin.
  • Truly personalised skin care needs the expert’s touch: At Skin Essentials, our clinic is owned and operated by a surgical doctor with a background in gynecology and obstetrics. Your loved one will get a gentle touch for whatever treatment we provide for them and will be informed about the best treatment options available for them.
  • The right skin care isn’t always what you see on the news or social media: Some influencers and famous people may boast of a treatment or product that they used for healthier, younger looking skin, but it might not be the right skin care regimen for your loved one.

Some Skin Care Products May Be Made With Less-Than-Healthy Ingredients

Some of the skin care products that are sold as gifts or commercially can contain ingredients that are less than healthy. Let’s take a look at some of those ingredients and how they are harmful:

  • Parabens are ingredients that are often used in commercial skin care products as preservatives. Parabens are problematic because they can hurt your endocrine system over the long term. They can also cause issues with your nervous system and immune system.
  • Petroleum jelly, also known as mineral oil, is used in some lotions and moisturizers. If not refined properly, petroleum jelly can be a carcinogen.
  • Fragrances are found in everything from cosmetics to lotions. If a fragrance is chemically derived, it could potentially be a carcinogen, neurotoxin, or another substance that is harmful to your skin over time.
  • Phthalates are a group of chemicals that are used to make plastic containers more flexible. In skin care products, they are also used as a solvent. They are also known for being carcinogens and can cause other negative health effects if used over time.
  • Ethanolamines are used as foaming agents and emulsifiers in a wide array of cosmetics and skin care products. Some research has indicated that ethanolamines pose a small risk of causing cancer.

If you are looking to gift skin care products for the holiday season, we strongly encourage you to try our Aspect Dr products. Aspect Dr is free of propylene glycol, mineral oil, parabens, animal derived ingredients, SLS and other harsh surfactants and not tested on animals, only people. Additionally, they are an Australianbrand with ethical sourcing.

Our Aspect Dr products are also available in gift sets. These skin care gift sets include an:

  • ABC Essential Kit: This kit contains different skin care products that treat common skin conditions and concerns.
  • Age Management Kit: This kit can help you achieve a more youthful appearance for your skin.
  • Soothing Skin Kit: This kit contains several products that are rich in antioxidants and can help hydrate your skin.
  • Starter Kit: This kit is great for those who are new to skin care.
  • Try Me Kit: This skin care kit is a great travel option or for those who have a smaller budget than the starter kit.

How Much Should I Put On a Gift Voucher?

If you purchase a voucher as a gift for your loved ones, any amount is a perfect option. A $100 gift voucher can be used to let someone purchase an initial consultation and place a little bit towards the service that is recommended during their initial consultation. The $100 voucher is a great option for someone who might purchase a consultation and one of the Try Me Kits.

If your loved one is new to skin care, a smaller gift voucher might be more appropriate to help them get started with an initial consultation. For someone who regularly receives skin care treatment, a larger voucher can help them transition to a new skin care experience.

Why Does a Gift Voucher Make For a Perfect Holiday Gift?

In the United States, a 2020 study by CeraVe of 2000 individuals revealed that many people want to make more informed decisions about their skin care:

  • Nearly 64% of participants in the study felt guilty about not taking skin care seriously.
  • 80% of participants in the study used trial and error to determine the right skin care regimen.
  • 58% of participants indicated that they wished they could turn back the clock and take their skin care more seriously when they were younger.

A gift voucher can make a perfect holiday gift. If you have family or friends who are younger, a voucher can get them a consultation with a skin care specialist who can get them the right skin care regimen. You might also help someone find the right skin care regimen without having to try different skin care products that might not be a good fit for them.
