How to Shop Skin Care for Others

As the holidays quickly approach, you may be trying to navigate the busy beauty industry in order to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones! If you’re wondering how to shop skin care for others, here’s a quick and easy guide for finding a gift they’ll love.

Consider their skin type
The first—and perhaps most important—consideration for buying beauty products as a gift is to consider the recipient’s skin type! This doesn’t mean that you should run out and buy a spot treatment for your niece who struggles with blemishes (in fact, please don’t) but rather it’ll help guide you toward a product they’ll love.

If you’re not sure what their skin type in, you can’t go wrong with a great body product. ATOPALM Moisturizing Hand Treatment or Derma:B Daily Moisture Body Oil are perfect go-to gifts that can be used (and loved) by any skin type.

Choose pampering over practical
While you may find the perfect anti-aging skin care ampoule for your favorite auntie, that doesn’t mean she wants it as a gift! Gifts should be fun first and practical second (if at all), so shop for a gift they’ll love instead of a gift they’ll need.

Specialty ingredients, spa-inspired products like face masks, or stage-of-life products like maternity skin care are all a great way to surprise your loved ones with something they may not purchase for themselves.

Get multiple “bite size” products
Instead of going all-out on the biggest size of a new product, shop for multiple smaller sizes so your loved one can get a feel for their gift without forcing them to overcommit. Think gift basket over trying to find the ideal grand finale gift.

The added benefit of this is that you get to shop for many fun things instead of just one! Try picking a theme or finding products that compliment each other.

Pretend like you’re the recipient
If all else fails, buy something that you’d be excited to receive! This is a great rule of thumb for all gift-buying, as long as you stay general in your likes.

We think you have great taste—you shop ATOPALM, after all. So get your loved ones your all-time favorite products, and they’ll appreciate the gesture of you sharing your favorite things with them!

Shopping during the holidays doesn’t need to feel overwhelming, and shopping for gifted skin care doesn’t need to seem complicated! Follow the simple steps above and you’ll be well on your way to finding a gift they’ll love.
