As a skincare product junkie, I would absolutely love it if most of my holiday gifts revolved around the face. Products that are tried-and-true are fine, but something new is always greatly appreciated. That said, most of my loved ones know very little about skincare (much less about skincare brands created by people of color) so this guide is both inspiring for the skincare lover as well as a primer for the gift-giver who would like to shower their loved one with special, quality goods.

Skincare enthusiasts will appreciate the distinctive stories and inspiration behind these brands––from K Beauty to Ayurveda, traditional Japanese skincare rituals to pimple patches. The creators range from plastic surgeons to celebrities, MBA grads to aestheticians.
