Mother’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to get creative with how to express your appreciation. Whether it’s your mom, stepmom, grandma, aunt, sister, or friend, they all deserve a little pampering. And what better than an entire day dedicated to spoiling the moms in your life?
When it comes to gifts, I gravitate toward experiences over material things. But, things still look a little different this year—vaccines are still being distributed, and travel is still restricted. If you’re lucky enough to spend the day together in person, an at-home spa day is the perfect day to bond, laugh, and create memories. If you’re celebrating virtually, send a spa day care package and enjoy some of the goodies together through a video call. Not only will these 7 steps make her day but they’ll also up her self-care routine to the next level.
Set the scene with your choice of wellness oils that range from relaxing to uplifting. Whether you choose to use a diffuser or massage drops on your pulse points and temples, or just inhale the oil from your hands, you can’t go wrong with a therapeutic aroma.

Every spa day starts with a refining, nourishing mask. Try something with the ideal balance of correcting and refining, so she’s left with a dewy goddess glow that can’t be missed.

While the mask is doing its thing, energize the under eyes for multitasking at its finest. Supercharge the eyes by applying eye patches and following with an eye cream to hydrate, brighten, reduce puffiness, and instantly wake you up.

Post-mask, drench the skin in a nourishing, hydrating face oil for a moisturized, radiant complexion.
Really reap in the benefits of the oil with a gua sha sesh. Not only will it help absorb better, but also drain lymph fluids, relax facial muscles, and lift and firm the skin. Start from the center of your face and push outwards. We suggest using a non-porous material, like stainless steel since it doesn’t carry bacteria.

Swap in your wine or mimosa for a supercharged wellness drink. The right formula will boost collagen production, support healthy hair and nails, and illuminate your skin from the inside out.
