It’s that most wonderful time of year again, when the halls are being decked with holly, Santa is hitting the waves in Raglan, gift ideas from relatives are snuck into messages, and the fairy lights are coming out to light up the night en masse. And we’ve got just the lineup of wonderful stocking stuffers in this skincare Christmas gift guide to give the gift of great skin to your loved ones.
Though this holiday season is going to be quite different than past ones, with less opportunity to have a bit too much eggnog at the office Christmas party, smaller holiday gatherings lacking the family’s quirky uncle and aunt, and unwrapping presents happening over video call -- that doesn’t mean it still can’t be special. And it doesn’t mean the gifts you give this year to family, friends, or yourself can’t be incredible and meaningful still.
Move over TimTams and that pack of socks nobody needs, mānuka oil is one gift for the holidays that is bound to have your loved ones leaping for joy in their matching reindeer onesies with the phenomenal skin and health benefits.
Let’s dive into our mānuka oil skincare Christmas gift guide so you can pick out just the right one to pop under the tree this year!
Pro-Aging Trio with Rosehip Oil for Youthful Skin
To kick off the gift guide is one of our newest must-have mānuka oil bundles. Though it can’t turn back time, this terrific skincare trio can help keep skin looking phenomenal, youthful, and healthy well into our later years.
Rosehip is packed with Vitamin A and E that helps to promote collagen production in the skin, essential for retaining skin elasticity. It’s almost like gifting the fountain of youth, but instead gifting youthful skin no matter the age!
One of the most important aspects for aging is skin health, and mānuka oil will fight against bad skin bacteria and infections to keep you and your skin in tip-top shape.
Mānuka and Rosehip Skin Oil
It’s not Christmas magic that makes this oil so effective, it’s the synergistic superpowers of mānuka oil and rosehip oil to help take years off skin and fortify it for the future. Rich with vitamin A, this oil helps to clean out pores while the retinoids work to remove hyperpigmentation, blemishes, wrinkles and signs of skin aging.
A dab a day keeps the wrinkles away. This skin cream will lock in moisture all day while still allowing skin to breathe as the rosehip oil assists in boosting cell repair and the mānuka oil adds a layer of defense throughout the day for any environment. The antibacterial potency of mānuka oil makes it an ideal everyday companion for any daily challenge or environment life presents.
Unleashing the antioxidant power of rosehip oil, this night cream gifts the skin of one's dreams all while catching some Zzz’s. Combined with kakadu plum oil, which has the most vitamin C found in nature, it fights free-radicals that can diminish collagen and lead to skin complications while promoting circulation and skin cell production for healthier and more youthful skin. All while you sleep.
