If you are trying to find the perfect way to pamper your mom this Mother's Day, then I highly recommend an at-home spa day and brunch. She will feel loved and pampered, and you can create a day filled with precious memories. Here are 10 easy steps, and you can use products that you already have. You can also buy a few special skincare treats for your mom that you can use on her that she can unwrap and take home after.
STEP I: To begin the facial, pump out enough of your favorite Cleansing Oil for your face, neck and décolleté. Massage it for about 1 minute in a circular motion concentrating on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. After massaging, the skin add a few drops of warm water in order to emulsify the oil (if it is the type that emulsifies), and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
STEP II: Use your favorite gentle cleanser to remove any excess cleansing oil, if you are a fan of double cleansing.
STEP III: Gently exfoliate your skin, using your favorite facial scrub. Gently massage into your wet face neck and décolleté in a light circular motion. When cleansers and exfoliants do their job properly, one can use far less of their favorite potions and lotions, and therefore can save a lot of money on wasted product. Nowhere is this more evident than when one has to replace an ultra-expensive serum all too soon.
STEP IV: Now that all you have removed dead skin cells, apply your favorite serum to your face, neck, and décolleté, and massage it into skin in an upward motion.
STEP V: Select your favorite luxury face oil and massage it into your skin in an upward motion. Be sure that you use enough to cover your face, neck and décolleté.
STEP VI: Warm a small amount of your favorite face lotion or cream between your fingertips and massage it in to your face, neck and décolleté. Massage upward and outward in order to boost circulation.
STEP VII: If you use a separate eye cream, then warm a tiny amount between your ring fingers and then gently pat it into the delicate eye area.
STEP VIII: Apply your sunscreen.
STEP IX: Massage a rich hand cream into your freshly washed cuticles and hands.
STEP X: Make your mom her favorite breakfast or brunch.
Enjoy this beautiful day together! Happy Mother's Day!
