Over the past year, many of us have lost the opportunity to celebrate holidays in the ways that we were once used to. Even if you were able to have lowkey celebrations with small groups, there’s still a sense of general anxiety that has clouded our celebrations and joys. The gift-giving pressure is on for Valentine’s Day this year, as we currently lack the option to browse for that perfect gift in person or treat someone to a special night out.
But don’t worry — we’ve thought of all this already so that you don’t have to! Clean, toxin-free skincare makes the perfect gift for all ages and skin types. And who doesn’t love a new addition to their skincare or bodycare lineup? As you have probably already discovered, the pandemic + cold weather = not a good skin combo.
Today we’re highlighting one of the brands we rely on to save our skin during times of stress, Lotus Moon Skincare. This gift is more than just a product, it is a way of giving your loved one some extra self-care time.
Lotus Moon founder Lake Louise has years of experience in the beauty and wellness industry, beginning 18 years ago with the founding of her first company. Her goal was to combine beauty, wellness, and inclusivity. Years before the “clean beauty” movement would take off, Louise was performing in-depth research of ingredients and their effects.
Lotus Moon’s products treat a variety of skin conditions, from different types of acne to rosacea and dehydrated skin. Lotus Moon’s first-ever product, Skin Regen, helps to heal and fade scars without the potentially harmful petroleum ingredients typically used in scar healing and regenerative products.
The Raw Cacao Mask + Peel
This Valentine’s Day, gift your loved one a decadent, spa-level facial treatment to be enjoyed from the comfort of their own home. The Lotus Moon Raw Cacao Mask + Peel is a powerful yet gentle renewal treatment that gets rid of dead skin while providing an intense boost of hydration to tired winter skin. A combination of ground cacao nibs, lactic acid, and fruit extracts exfoliate skin both manually and down to the chemical level, leaving skin smoother and softer than ever. Fun fact: Cacao has more antioxidants than any other food, meaning it’s a powerful ingredient that protects skin’s precious collagen and elastin from damage.
This treatment is safe and nourishing for all skin types. Plus, the chocolate scent from the Cacao nibs, powder, and extract in the product makes the gift feel more Valentine-y.
The goal of Lotus Moon’s creations is to combine science and nature in order to create and maintain healthy skin at any stage of life. Check out even more on Lotus Moon’s website: hand sanitizers if you’re running low post-2020, luxury body care, and more.
