Mother’s Day Skincare Gift Guide

It’s safe to say the last 12 months have been hard on all of us, but especially mothers. Many moms have had to wear a few new hats over the past year, learning to navigate working from home and/or taking on the tremendous task of remote learning with their children with very little, if any, me-time.

Plus, the past year may have put some social distance between you and your own mother, as we all did (and do) our part to stay safe and healthy to stop the spread of COVID-19. So, this Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show the moms or mother figures in your life just how much you’ve missed them and appreciate them. The ideal present? Give her the gift of self-care: luxury skincare that delivers clinically-proven results. Perricone MD has a number of highly giftable sets that are sure to work for every mom in your life.  Here, ID her personality or skin needs, then find her the perfect Perricone MD boxed set. 

For the mom who never misses a step: 

She likes a routine and she knows how to dominate a to-do list. When it comes to her skincare regimen, she likes a clear plan to follow. Plus, she wants to use what works—no gimmicks. 

Gift her with: The Fan Favorites Regimen

This four-piece collection is a good way to sample some of Perricone MD’s best-selling, premium skincare products. You get a four-step regimen that hydrates, brightens and visibly smooths and firms skin. What’s in it?
