For the mother who always puts her best face forward.
Written By Tara Lamont Djite
Your mother. Your sister. Your work colleague. Your closest confident. Your favorite pilates instructor. It’s statistically impossible to have a woman in your life not be obsessed with skin care. Furthermore (if our numbers are correct), there’s a likely probability she’s expecting a Mother’s Day present this year.
Whether her focus is the décolletage, under-eye circles or just a luxuriously rich moisturizer these effective (and often beautifully-scented) products are the perfect choice for the matriarch who has a soft spot for skin care and believes in necessary maintenance.

Although described as a polish, Tatcha Enzyme Powder is gentle enough to use as a cleanser each day. Simply mix half a teaspoon of powder in your palm with water and apply to a damp face. The cleansing properties come from rice bran, which sake masters discovered has the power to release debris from the skin while soothing the dermis at the same time.

The secret in SK-II lies in the magic of sake. Years ago, sake makers realized their hands (which spent hours dipped in the stuff) were incredibly youthful and supple. Those same ingredients are now used in products. SK-II Treatment Essence is best applied after cleansing via a patting motion, and over time works to redefine skin texture and shrink pores.

The biggest nuisance of hand creams is residue, which is—thankfully—not a worry with La Prairie’s luxuriously scented formula. The genius is in its ingredients, which also exfoliate, brighten, and nourish to prevent aging on one the most sensitive of areas.
