    Mother's Day Gifts for Perfect Pampering

    Want to make her Mother's Day really special this year? Try these gift-worthy beauty favorites from Pantea Tamjidi, MD, a dermatologist and owner of Tamjidi Skin Institute in Chevy Chase, Md.

    Nourishing Body Scrub

    The Body Shop Mango Body Scrub:  Some body scrubs can dry out skin, but this one contains organic sugar and salt to gently exfoliate plus mango seed and organic soy oil to hydrate.

    Perfect Hair Brush

    Denman Natural Boar Bristle and Nylon Brush: The brush’s boar bristles help distribute oil from the scalp down the hair shaft, and the nylon pins help your hair dry faster so the dryer does less damage.

    Nontoxic Nail Polish

    Zoya Nail Polish: Get colorful nails the healthy way with polish that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals like formaldehyde or toluene.

    Two-in-One Foot Smoother

    Tweezerman Sole Mates Dual-Sided Foot File: This tool is the next best thing to a professional pedicure, with a steel microfile on one side to remove dead skin and a soft file on the other side to buff heels and soles smooth.

    Gentle Facial Scrub

    Clinique 7-Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula: This scrub helps minimize fine lines by removing dead surface skin cells and clears the way for moisturizer to do its job.

    Super-Duper Skin Serum

    Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum: This serum boasts amino-peptides, proteins that act as antioxidants to help build collagen, hydrate and plump the skin, and reduce signs of sun damage.

    Skin-Saving Moisturizer

    Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30: This moisturizer is full of soy, a triple threat that plumps the skin, smooths fine lines, and reduces the appearance of brown spots.
