I love holiday skin care. I love it as a gorgeous gift to give people throughout the holidays or under the tree, as well as for myself. I think of them as tasteful hostess gifts and stocking stuffers and a good way to remind myself of self-care during this busy and often stressful season.
Maybe it’s the programs I’m watching on TV that are targeting my age group, but I feel as though I can’t spend a half hour watching anything without an ad promising that retinoids in skin care will solve all my problems.
I’m not a social media person, so I don’t tend to keep on top of skin care trends as much as some of my friends and family. Still, because I am a social person (in real life!), I still hear about them through the old-fashioned grape vine of coffee chats with friends or talking to people on the phone. While some are useful and fascinating, there are others I would simply never try at home!
