Mother’s Day is coming up—and if you didn’t have that on your radar quite yet, that’s perfectly understandable, global pandemic and all. But now is actually the perfect time to think of celebrating moms, the VIPs of quarantine. They transformed into homeschooling teachers, chefs, project managers (grocery shopping on a lockdown is not for the faint hearted), therapists and much more.
Thankfully, we have lots of ways to make mom feel appreciated this Mother’s Day—even if the holiday looks a little different this year. We’ve rounded up our favorite relaxing products to help her feel the Zen at home, plus we’ve got gift cards for services with our self-care specialists at The Colour Bowl in Mequon, WI. Read on for the details and to shop and celebrate mom.
TURN HER SHOWER INTO A SPA
Since a Mother’s Day spa day might be out of the question for the next few weeks, why not bring the spa day to her? One of our favorites to make a bathroom look and smell like Aveda is the Nutriplenish line—it has a heavenly aroma thanks to superfood ingredients like coconut, pomegranate, cocoa, certified organic ginger, cardamom and other pure flower and plant essences. Nutriplenish delivers serious hydration and leaves hair soft and noticeably healthy.
And to take it to the next level, send mom the details on how to give herself a scalp massage in the shower, which is the next best thing to getting a luxurious in-salon hydrating treatment. By incorporating deep breathing, intentional brushing, massaging of pressure points on the skull and temples and the aromatherapy of Aveda products, she’ll feel relaxed and restored.
HELP HER WAKE UP RADIANT
Motherhood, combined with quarantine, can be tough on the skin (we’re thinking of all those sleepless nights, worry lines, and dark under-eye circles), and our favorite remedy is Tulasara Wedding Masque Overnight. It’s one of Aveda’s top-rated products for good reason—it delivers rich hydration and leaves the skin looking moisturized, youthful and radiant.
The best part of the mask is that it does all the work for her while she sleeps—just apply it before bed and wake up with visibly transformed skin. Mom will love it not only for its powerful brightening abilities, but also because it’s dermatologist-tested, vegan, cruelty-free and fragrance-free. Plus, the plant-derived caffeine helps reduce visible puffiness of the eyes—just in time for allergy season.
MELT THE STRESS AWAY
In these times, mom could probably use all the help she can get to keep the stress away, and Aveda’s Stress-Fix line is formulated just for that. The Stress-Fix aroma is made with organic lavender, lavandin, clary sage and other pure essential oils and has been proven to reduce anxiety. Some of our favorites are:
- Body Creme is an answered prayer for dry, dehydrated skin. It restores the skin’s natural moisture barrier with shea butter, sunflower seed oil and sustainably harvested sea algae. Moisture is locked in for 24 hours and skin feels soft and nourished.
- Concentrate is a portable rollerball with the signature Stress-Fix aroma that she can reach for anytime she needs some extra peace of mind.
- Body Lotion hydrates and nourishes the skin and has healing benefits when applied to the neck and shoulders using simple Ayurvedic massage techniques.
- Composition Oil can be added to the bath for a relaxing, aromatherapeutic experience that leaves skin soft and nourished. It’s also a favorite to use as massage oil to relieve tension.
