As Mother’s Day approaches, begin your search for the perfect gift by checking out beauty products. As women age, their skin changes, too — and there are specialized beauty tools that can help the mom in your life feel her best no matter what phase of life she is in.

Thankfully, brands from Sephora to Ulta to Dermstore have lists of products organized by age, skin type and concern lined up to narrow down your search.

For new moms in their 20s, you can find nifty beauty tools to help ease her into her self-care routine. For mature mothers, there are anti-aging tools and even cool (and inexpensive) head and face massagers to help her unwind on her day off.

Even if you can’t splurge this year, there are still plenty of budget-friendly alternatives to get your mom glowing. Kitsch carries a bunch of cute hair accessories and even some satin pillowcases under $20 to help keep your mom’s skin and hair healthy.

If you can splurge on mom this year, consider deep-diving into higher-end products like flat irons, facial steamers and even lip-plumping devices to give your special lady a special day to herself. If you need help getting started, here are a few beauty tools for moms at every age.
