Every day is a good day to celebrate those who’ve raised us, nurtured us, taught us—and let’s be real, put up with us. But Mother’s Day is definitely a time to go a little bigger. Whether your mom is skincare obsessed or a lowkey kinda gal, pamper them with our curated self-care picks that will be sure to boost her routine, and keep her glow going. Ahead are just a few ways to say thank you to the mothers, sisters, grandmothers, friends and mentors in our lives.
BOOK THEM A FACIAL.
A great skincare routine starts with a solid foundation. Find your mom’s local Pore Star for a skincare consultation and facial. In her professional consultation, she’ll learn about her skin type, break down her current routine and have all of her specific questions answered. Also, who wouldn’t want a little relaxation time when bright, youthful skin is the outcome?
CLEANSERS THAT HYDRATE.
While not all mothers identify with having mature skin, finding a cleanser that doesn’t strip and imbalance the skin is a must for everyone! Seek a moisturizing cleanser with elasticity-restoring actives that aid in both hydrating and plumping the skin.
AGE DEFYING ANTIOXIDANT SERUMS.
Find her skin-firming, hydrating antioxidant serums for an added boost of vitamins after cleansing. Look for serums that address concerns associated with aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides and vitamin C will be her partners in crime.
OILS ARE ESSENTIAL.
As time goes on, we need just as much moisture as we do skin-loving vitamins for our skin. Gift your loved one even more concentrated nutrients to add to her regimen. Using the right essential oil blend will provide their skin with botanical vitamins that further stimulate skin regeneration, and even help reduce age spots.
EXFOLIATION, BUT MAKE IT GENTLE.
While all skin types benefit from some form of exfoliation, thinner and aging skin requires a gentle way of sloughing away dead skin. More mature skin will most likely solely benefit the most from a chemical exfoliator. If your mom falls in this category, this is their saving grace. While an ultra-fine mechanical exfoliator is fine for other skin types, a medium that doesn't put much tension skin surface gets the job done.
KEEP THEIR EYES ON THE PRIZE.
As we know, our eyes are the first to show signs of aging and stress and the fragility of this area makes them more vulnerable and prone to irritation and allergic reactions that can manifest into dark circles and puffiness. Dehydration, sun exposure and environmental factors also show the most in the eyes. Get her a fool-proof eye care system that ensures this area of her routine is locked in.
MAKE IT LUXE.
Skincare doesn't stop at the face. This Mother’s Day, give her a body care regimen that not only nourishes and hydrates the skin, but also mildly and gently exfoliates as well.
HAVE THEM COVERED ON THE GO.
Offering a TSA-friendly set of age-defying essentials will help give skin a firmer, smoother and fresher look when she’s on the road. Travel packs for the face and body will guarantee that she stays on track, without the hassle.
