Motherâ€™s Day is coming up! We have many mothers in the Janiga MDs Reno office, including myself, so we thought it would be fun to do a post strictly for the mom in your life. Below is a list of products and treatments that the moms in our office picked out for great Motherâ€™s Day gift ideas.
Antioxidants reverse the damage and stress done to skin on a daily basis. Our moms are out and about all day running errands for us, going to and from sports activities, and being exposed to environmental damages. An antioxidant gift is the perfect way for mom to help combat these skin stressors.
Antioxidants include vitamin A, vitamin C, green tea, and many others. My favorite is Skin Medica’s A/C Antioxidant, as it has antioxidants and is a glycerin-based application. This glycerin-based product slides smoothly across the skin. I have had very few people have irritation from this product. It is good for even the most sensitive skin. This product costs about $100 for a three-month supply, and is available in our Reno dermatology offices.
Sunscreen is another great gift for mom. Sunscreen protects her from the daily exposure she gets at all those outdoor activities she takes the kids to, as well as the protection she needs just driving in the car. Some of our sunscreens have anti-inflammatory properties such as niacinamide, are moisturizing for dry skin, or are made specifically for oily skin. We can help you find the right sunscreen for your mom. The sunscreens available in our office range from $25-$40.
Anti Aging Serum
We all want to look our best, including mom. A great gift for mom is our combination product, TNS essential serum by Skin Medica. This essential serum includes peptides, antioxidants and growth factors. The growth factors help with cell turnover, collagen stimulation, reversal of environmental damage, and improvements in texture, tone and pigment irregularities. It is truly an all-encompassing anti aging product that is perfect for mom. This product is more expensive because it is three products in one bottle. The cost is $270 for a three month supply.
Botox or Dysport
If you’d like to get mom a treatment rather than a product, Botox or Dysport is another option. Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that inhibit muscles from contracting, and are used in the frown lines around the eyes and forehead. If you think your mom scowls at you a lot, this will help!Â One area costs about $300.
If you can’t decide what you would like to get mom for Mother’s Day, and you’re not sure what products or treatments she would like, you can always buy a gift certificate in any denomination she can use however she sees fit, because as we all know, “mom know best!!!”
We want to with you a Happy Motherâ€™s Day to all our readers.
