5 Local Beauty Brands To Treat Yourself To During The Holidays
Not going abroad to do your holiday shopping? Why not splurge on these local beauty brands instead?
This holiday season is proving to be different from all the ones we've had in the past—little to no physical gatherings and parties, a much quieter atmosphere, and way less vacations out of the country! As we sit still and stay patient for the time we can roam around freely again, let's enjoy home, and find ways to treat ourselves and our loved ones for the time being.
It could be sending your friends and family home-cooked specialties, gathering over virtual parties, or shopping online to pick out gifts and treats for reaching the end of a relatively difficult year. And when it comes to shopping, we're no stranger to picking out some of the coolest, newest, and best finds on the world wide web! In this gift guide, we pick out five local beauty brands to support and treat yourself to this holiday season. Keep scrolling!
The brand that brought us the personal teeth whitening kit is back with not one, not two, but three new products to invest in this holiday season! Taking your self-care routine to the next level includes giving your teeth TLC (visit your dentist safely during this pandemic) and whitening it with a reliable brand such as this. This season, MySmile brings us their Sanitizing Breath + Whitening Spray, which not just gives fresh breath, but also kills bacteria and viruses in the mouth and throat. Doesn't hurt that it whitens teeth while it's at it too!
The MySmile LED Case is here to give you a more handy way to store your personal LED light gadget. It's the safest and most hygienic way to store it. And last but not least, the MySmile Extra Strength Refills Kit offers a higher concentration of active ingredients that give a faster, whiter result. It also comes with a Remineralizing gel that will be used once a week to bring back minerals in your teeth! Orders yours here!
Another local self-care brand brand we love is Veste, as it offers must-have skincare tools like jade and rose quartz rollers, gua shas, LED beauty sticks, and glow up wands. These items are now considered basic tools one must have to ensure effective skincare and anti-aging, and Veste makes these affordable and easy to invest in. We highly recommend getting a complete set, as each is specifically made to help improve skin's overall texture and circulation, helps lift, and helps boost collagen. Supplement your tools with skincare products like their Aloe Vera Gel that's relieving and healing, the Repair & Glow skincare product set, and their line of bar shampoos in collaboration with The Eco Shift!

To achieve the perfectly painted lip, one must have smooth, moisturized lips free of chapping and unwanted roughness. Scout Beauty not just offers the prettiest, affordable bullet lip colors, they also launched their latest offering: Lip Lush! These lip scrubs gently exfoliates your lips, gently buffing away dull surface skin cells. Available in 5 luscious flavors like Cotton Candy, Vanilla, Caramel Popcorn, Mango, and Strawberry, Lip Lush is the newest addiction in your bathroom shelf! Order yours here.
At the end of a hectic day, I personally find pleasure in stripping my face off dirt and grime, as it relaxes me knowing I'm taking off any and all impurities that may be left on my skin. I don't just do it with water or soap though, I've chosen to do it with a beautiful face oil by local brand Simple Essentials. Their EASY Facial Cleansing Oil is a staple in my routine for its lavender essential oil that is able to calm my skin down and cleanse it at the same time. Massaging my face while cleaning it is the best way to signal the start of my self-care session, and can only be done with a high-quality oil such as this. Love local, and love your skin.

Still on the lookout for the next beauty gadget to invest in? Since we're all on self-care mode anyway, might as well go all out on the skincare front, trying intelligent skincare tools such as this new product from Beauty Secret! Their 6-in-1 Portable Multifunction RF/EMS device cleans, refines pores, lessens oiliness, reduces fine lines and appearance of dark under eye area, accelerates absorption of moisture into the skin, improves elasticity, lifts, shapes, and tightens for an overall improved, glowing look with regular use.
