Categories Of Beauty
The first aesthetic category found in ancient peoples is “beauty.” The Greeks have related this category to the concept of “good” and designate what is “well made” or “well done.” So, for example, weapons are aesthetic and beautiful objects because they are “well made” and have a practical function.

How to Buy Beauty: Here’s Exactly How to Shop all Seven Categories
December stands as an exciting and festive time of year filled with excellent buying opportunities in the beauty space. How does one decide where to start with so many unique promotions, gift sets, and sales?
When shopping for yourself or those lucky recipients on your list, focus on the seven beauty categories.
Shopping for skincare is always fun, and with so many incredible brands, it’s hard to choose what to put in your cart. It’s much easier to buy for yourself than for others because skin conditions vary so much, person to person.
However, safe bets for gifting skincare are ancillary products like face masks, scrubs, patches, lip balms, peel pads, and facial mists. These products are usually suited for various skin types and conditions and are not usually part of an individual’s core AM/PM routine. This method, your recipient can add these products into their existing product lineup at their own pace without knocking their skin off balance.
2. Body Care
When it arises to giving the gift of a beautiful home run, body care products are the way to go. Most people can benefit from body scrubs, moisturizing body butters, foot softeners, hand lotions, and shower gels.
These are perfect for pampering, soothing and moisturizing some of the more neglected areas of the body and come in handy during the cold, dry winter months. Plus, we all need a little extra TLC right now, so you can’t go wrong. When in doubt, pampering products can stay grouped in a basket with a spa robe or Turkish towel set, and you’re giving a spa day gift that will keep giving well into the new year.
Makeup, like skincare, can be a difficult gift to give. Beauty color selections are usually personalized to the person wearing them. Skin tone and undertones and eye and hair color must still be considered. However, if you take a makeup addict on your list, don’t be put off giving him a great gift.
The finest thing about the holiday season is the sheer number of select outfits on offer. So while you’ll want to avoid giving away foundations and concealers, feel free to pick up a collection of lipsticks, lip glosses, or eyeliners. And of course, bronzers, blushes, and highlighters are always a big hit. Keep an eye out for some amazing palettes that contain a full-face makeup option in one convenient compact. That will make your makeup-loving friend or family member smile!
4. Hair Care
Haircare is a beautiful category to gift as it’s a bit more unexpected but always appreciated. If you have a traveler or gym-goer in your life, then those smaller, travel-friendly sizes will make a fantastic gift for them.
Other ways to shop for hair care products include hair masks, heat tools, styling products, hair serums, beard oils, scalp scrubs and accessories like towels and wraps. Hair maintenance products make beautiful gifts and will be used and enjoyed for many months.
5. Nail Care
If you identify your recipient loves a good manicure and pedicure, fill them up with fun and colorful nail products. Nail care products and accessories are in demand because many of us do our nails at home instead of being profitable to a nail salon.
So in light of this, nail polish strips, nail polish, hand lotions and scrubs, and some awesome emery boards or pumice stones are going to be a big hit this holiday season. You can even think of creating a nail care pack for a home manicure/pedicure game. Add some flip flops, cotton gloves and some bath salts in a decorative foot bowl. Who wouldn’t want that?
One thing is for sure, all the major fragrance brands offer beautiful gift sets. If you have a loved one who wears a specific fragrance, don’t hesitate to buy them a set with their favorite perfume, body lotion and shower gel.
If you’re not sure nearly the preferences of the fragrance lover in your life, consider gifting them a sample or discovery kit. These sets typically contain samples or travel sizes of multiple fragrances and are interactive and fun for the recipient to explore.
Fragrance is a beautiful category to give away this year, mainly because so many retail stores have pulled their test displays. So your gift will delight and help your loved one find their next favorite fragrance.
7. Tools, Devices, Accessories
Beauty has certainly gone high-tech, and now, with the right tools and accessories, we can take good care of our skin at home. In light of this, pretty much anyone on your list will be thrilled with a state-of-the-art beauty tool.
Some of my favourites to give away are silicone cleansing brushes. because they help to deep clean and regenerate the skin. In addition, portable microcurrent devices are an absolute bonus for any beauty-loving holiday gift recipient to give their skin a tone of life and glow. If you take someone on your list. If anyone is complaining about wrinkles or acne. Consider giving them an at-home LED mask or hand tool. These are the kinds of gifts that preserve giving and will remain cherished for years to come.
