BMR Electric Facial Toner (www.BMRBeauty.com/us) - $395
After the age of 30, facial muscles naturally atrophy, which leads to hallowing of the face and creasing of the skin. The innovative, FDA-cleared BMR Facial Toner uses natural, comfortable stimulation in the form of gentle electrical pulses to help enhance the beauty and youthful appearance of your face. Full results are noticeable after a 12-week period of using the device for five days a week for just 20 minutes at a time. This is another great product that Mom can enjoy in the comfort and privacy of her home while achieving the same effect that skincare professionals offer.
Rodan + Fields Macro Exfoliator (www.RodanAndFields.com) - $279
Developed by Drs. Rodan and Fields, the Rodan + Fields MACRO Exfoliator is an at-home, hand-held exfoliation tool that features patent-pending DOC-SMART technology, which provides optimal levels of macro-exfoliation for each facial cosmetic zone. By automatically varying the amount of exfoliation, the MACRO Exfoliator tailors the user experience—from deeper action in thick skinned areas like the forehead, to gentler in more delicate areas, such as the eye region. The result is professional-level, immediate and long-term improvements in texture, tone, and overall radiance. Used for only five minutes once a week, Rodan + Fields MACRO Exfoliator will have Mom feeling and looking younger in no time.
