We observe Mother’s Day every May to celebrate those who gave us life. Well, not only do they do that, but in most cases, they raise, nurture and protect us as we grow into adults and go on to repeat the cycle.
Moms work hard and make many sacrifices for us throughout our lives. So it’s only fair that we spoil them when their special day comes around. Here are some beauty-related recommendations they’ll love.
A tinted balm
Traditional lipstick can be time-consuming and require some skill to apply properly. Many moms feel that they don’t have enough time to apply make-up or skincare. Tinted lip balm is the answer! They deliver the nourishment of a lip balm with a sheer wash of colour and can usually be applied without a mirror. This makes it easy for on-the-go touch-ups.
A body oil
As women age, our skin tends to become drier, which can contribute to signs of ageing. By using a body oil to lock in moisture and then applying lotion afterwards, skin can appear more hydrated and youthful. Apply it onto damp skin for easier absorption. This version also happens to smell like a tropical paradise for a real home spa experience.
A nail varnish
Moms are busy people, especially when their children are still young. This means they don’t have the time to go for regular manicures where they can change their style and colour. Instead of giving your mother a selection of shades she may or may never use, opt for something versatile that compliments all skin tones, like this brightening pink-hued clear polish.
A fancy serum
Many of our mothers would love to invest in their skin, but don’t feel like they can justify the cost of some of the high-performing skincare brands and products. But maybe if they see some results, they will be more motivated to continue on their skincare journey. That’s why you should treat your mom to a serum that’s effective and feels fabulous.
A bath oil
There are few things in life more indulgent than an aromatic bubble bath. They are also great for relieving tired bodies and muscles and bringing on a sense of relaxation. While Epsom salts do the trick, adding a scented bath oil can make the whole experience even more elevated. This luxurious version smells like being in a rose garden – divine!
This product has cult status in the beauty world for a reason. It has so many different uses and fans often have a tube everywhere from their handbag to their work desk. Let Mom see what all the fuss is about by gifting her one. It can be used to soothe chapped lips, moisturise cuticles, treat sores, tame brows and nourish lashes.
A bougie scent
Choosing a scent for mom when she doesn’t have a signature scent can be a challenge. There are, however, a handful of modern classics that are loved by many that she may not be familiar with. Fragrances like this one – which is popular across generation gaps – are classy, sophisticated and flattering (and might end up being mom’s new fave!).
