As we welcome the warm spring weather, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The holiday is Sunday, May 14th this year, so April is the perfect time for your practice to start thinking of gift ideas and stocking up for your offers. In this article, we’ll help your business create a plan for a lucrative holiday season.
Why Skincare is the Perfect Gift for Mothers
Skincare and beauty products make excellent gifts for the inspiring women in our lives. Like the winter holidays, patients are eagerly anticipating the upcoming holiday, and they are on the lookout for gift ideas.
Skincare makes the perfect gift. Products are a simple, easy and thoughtful way to help mom look and feel great, and mothers of all ages will appreciate being pampered with youth-renewing formulas. Self-care is more popular than ever, and patients can help their mom relax with a night-in or a regimen to take care of themselves.
Even if a patient’s mom already has a skincare regimen, she’ll love an extra product to add in or substitute, whether it’s a new eye product or a moisturizer that she hasn’t tried yet.
Skincare Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Which products make the best gift for mom? Products with antioxidants help keep the skin protected against environmental damage, especially during time outdoors, keeping it hydrated, firm and bright, while vitamins have wide-ranging skin benefits for replenishing youth and moisture.
- Vita Soothe, a protective rejuvenating serum with Lipochroman®, the strongest antioxidant on the market and the only antioxidant to protect against carbon, nitrogen and oxygen free radicals along with antioxidant and replenishing vitamins E and F. Vita Soothe is a biolipid-based serum which instantly makes skin feel silky, smooth and fresh.
- Radiant Shield SPF 40, a tinted, globally protective anti-aging moisturizer. Like Vita Soothe, Radiant Shield contains Lipochroman®, plus Ectoin, a unique ingredient that supports skin health and sustains long-term hydration, zinc oxide and a hydrating and firming botanical blend. Combining these, Radiant Shield protects against all sources of environmental skin aging, from UV to blue (HEV) to IR light and environmental pollution, keeping skin firm, hydrated and glowing.
- C-Stem®, a concentrated anti-aging serum. Vitamin C is one of the best ingredients for restoring and supporting youthful skin with a combination of antioxidant protection, brightening and moisture. C-Stem®’s tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a form of vitamin C with enhanced skin penetration and effectiveness. Simultaneously, lilac stem cells and gene modulators further promote skin youthfulness, brightening and firmness, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
- Chamomile Facial Cleanser, a gentle, hydrating cleanser. Skincare users of all ages benefit from cleansing in the morning and evening, preventing buildup of dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris. Chamomile Facial Cleanser is a sulfate-free, brightening and hydrating formula that softens and soothes the skin while removing ultrafine debris greater than PM 0.1 in size and dead cells.
These are just a few of our top sellers which are especially popular as youth-sustaining skincare gifts for mothers, and each is available in our new travel-size as well.
Gifting a Complete Regimen
As you consider gift ideas, remember that mothers can be a wide range of ages and with a variety of different skincare needs, from hydration and acne to lines, wrinkles and brightness.
To address these specific needs with even greater effectiveness, consider offering one of our skincare systems as a gift idea or promotion. Each system is designed as a complete regimen with a particular goal in mind, including:
- Age Reverse System, which contains Chamomile Facial Cleanser, C-Stem® and Ultra Benefits®, our #1 selling anti-aging moisturizer with a focus on firming and brightening. This system is great at reversing lines and wrinkles and brightening for mothers of all ages, especially in their later years when these become a greater priority.
- Acne Control System. This regimen starts with Salicylic Face & Body Wash, a pore-clearing, hydrating, sulfate-free cleanser, followed by Glycolic Gel, a nonirritating exfoliant to further remove acne-causing dead skin and debris. Green Tea Antioxidant Serum adds brightening and protection with a nutrient-packed green tea extract, and Acne Spot Treatment provides quick relief from breakouts. This system is best for younger mothers, who will appreciate its acne-clearing and oil-controlling benefits.
- Skin Brightening System, which contains Salicylic Face & Body Wash, Vita Soothe and Vita-C 20, a concentrated vitamin C moisturizer which gives skin a burst of protective, nourishing and hydrating vitamin C for remarkable brightening and smoothing. This system is another great choice for mothers of all ages, particularly in their middle-ages, providing skin with a youthful boost.
Each of these kits is already packaged and ready-to-go as the perfect skincare gift for mom.
