Creating An In-Home Spa Experience for Mothers Day
After a long and busy day, sometimes you want nothing more than a full-scale pamper package. Reality hits - it’s just not an option.
What is an option, though, is setting up a little DIY mini-spa experience - right in the comfort of your own home!
If not for yourself, why not treat the lady in your life for this Mothers Day?
It’s easy, inexpensive, and a great way to indulge.
A pamper session gives Mum a chance to put her feet up, take a deep breath, and indulge. Self-care often gets overlooked by busy Mums - particularly if the children are still young!
Curate a DIY Facial
Applying a face mask brings immediate indulgence. Whether you’re going all out with cucumber eyes or chilling in front of the TV, the application of that ultimate drink for your skin is so rewarding.
We’ve got a handy guide to creating the ultimate Mothers Day Experience at your place.
All you’ll need is a few bits and pieces to set the scene:
A calming brew of herbal/fruit tea in her favourite pot/cup
Candles for ultimate spa vibes
Optional: cucumber slices for eyes, chocolate for brownie points
Set yourself up a relaxing area, with a comfy bed or couch.
Light some candles! Scented or not, candles make the whole experience feel a little bit fancier.
Brew a pot of your favourite tea - lavender and chamomile are known to be soothing.
While your tea is brewing, it’s time to whip up your DIY Face Mask.
Customise your own mask with a choice of French Pink Clay, Activated Charcoal and NZ Green Clay.
The kit contains everything you need, including a soft brush to apply your mask to your (or someone elses) face!
Time to put your feet up. Pop on your favourite tunes and bliss out for half an hour, sipping tea in candlelight like the royalty you are!
NB: Our Face Mask Kit comes complete with recipes and instructions, so if you can’t be there to treat Mum, she’ll be well set-up to do it for herself.
Why We Love Face Masks
Aside from being a hydrating smoothie for your skin, there’s a reason this facial treatment is a firm favourite.
Face masks can assist with:
Smoothness and appearance of the skin
Decongesting clogged pores
Reducing the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation
Clearing up breakouts
The beauty of a face mask is that it delivers a powerful dose of beneficial ingredients to your skin.
Your mask creates a boundary between your skin and the environment, locking in those nutrients to ensure deep absorption.
This concentrated dosage is the reason masks are advised to be used weekly, rather than as part of your daily skincare routine.
Take this intermittance, pair it with the instant softness felt in the skin after rinsing, and it’s easy to see why using a face mask feels so indulgent.
Take it up a notch
If you’ve gone to this much effort, why not take it all the way?
Add a foot soak to enhance the experience!
If you don’t have one of those foot spas from the ninetines, a large bowl will do. Add a sprinkle of epsom salts (about 1/2C) to aid relief of aches and pains.
Feeling luxurious yet?
We’re not done. Massaging a soothing foot balm into freshly soaked feet is the perfect way to top off this pamper party!
Whether you’re gifting to your Mother, wife or daughter, we’re certain that a pamper session will go down an absolute treat. Sure, you could just buy wine and chocolate.
But why bother when you can treat her to something uniquely indulgent - that you know she deserves!
