Lest you want your holiday gift to go over like a lump of coal, stay away from giving beauty products that feature the following phrases, claims, or intentions:

✘ Fights cellulite

✘ Corrects dark circles

✘ Firms sagging skin

✘ Clears blemishes and acne

✘ Minimizes signs of aging

✔ Instead reach for skin-care, bath, and makeup products that will make people feel great about themselves—and you!

We have some suggestions in our Healthy Holiday Gift Guide and our Holiday Shop.
