Mothers spend most of their lives taking care of others and putting themselves last. Make her Mother’s Day special this year by making it easy to pamper herself and giving her the tools to keep up with her self-care. Make her feel extra beautiful!
Self-Love Facial Steam
Before you take her to brunch, she’ll probably be thinking of ways to serve you. Instead, flip it around and set up an at-home facial steam for her followed by a relaxing pre-meal tea ritual.
Ever wonder why your esthetician steams your face for so long prior to your facial treatment? A warm steam not only helps remove surface impurities from skin, but also helps draw out buildup from pores. It also contributes to a healthy, dewy glow.
Here’s how to set up a facial steam for your mom:
- On the stovetop, heat up water and add your choice of herbs (such as lavender) or tea (green or rose are fabulous). Be careful and don’t touch or go near boiling-hot water!
- Once the water releases ample steam, transfer the water and herbs/tea into a large bowl.
- Move the bowl to the bathroom where your mom engages in her skincare routine. Give her a large towel and ask her to drape it over her head as she bends her face over the steam for five minutes or so.
- Of course, tell her to wait if it’s too hot to handle! Before the steam, ask her to cleanse her face first.
The Gift of Vibrant Skin
Make sure you place her new skincare gifts on the bathroom counter next to the steam bowl.
This beautiful sheer pink gloss drenches lips in hydration, while improving the appearance and volume of lip contours and diminishing the look of fine lines. With just one swipe, your mom’s lips will appear plump and full! Bonus: This lip complex benefits the Care for Skin Foundation, which provides critical skin surgery for children in need.
Your mom deserves the best! Show mom what it’s like to enjoy best-selling skin care. This popular serum glides on like silk (perfect for a quick facial and temple self-massage), softening the appearance of wrinkles and collagen-depleted, dull skin. Your mom will look absolutely radiant and energized for brunch.
After using the VITAL C serum and before applying makeup, tell mom to protect herself with this broad-spectrum sunscreen. Quick-absorbing and non-greasy, this hydrating moisturizer melts seamlessly into skin to help reduce the effects of environmental damage.
While mom is indulging in her skincare self-care, prepare some calming and invigorating tea for her to enjoy before her meal. Using the remaining tea you used for the steam, steep in a cup of warm water. Serve in a proper tea cup and saucer! She’ll be thrilled to sip after she comes out of her steam and facial regimen looking beautiful, refreshed and glowing!
