If there’s one person in the world that deserves a bit of pampering right now, it’s your mum 💁♀️. This year though, Mother’s Day looks a little different. Brunch dates, mother/daughter pedicures at the salon and family lunches are pretty much out the window - so how do you spoil mum? With an at home spa day of course!
We’re talking face masks, manicures, a relaxing bath and DIY facials. And if you can’t get to your mum’s house due to everything that’s going on, you can create the perfect DIY spa hamper, packed with body wash, bath salts and face masks so she can do it all in her own home! Want to learn how to create the perfect at home spa day for mum? Read on!
Ready, set, bliss out.
5 at-home spa treatments for mum
How to create the perfect at-home spa day
What is an at-home spa day without a face mask? In our opinion, incomplete. We’ll continue to rave about the benefits of them forever, because there’s truly nothing better than drawing a hot bath, popping one on and relaxing.
And the good news? You’re totally spoilt for choice, so you can find the perfect face mask (or eye mask) for both mum and you. To get you started, we’ve picked out a few of our best-sellers which suit all skin types:
A cult favourite for a reason, this clay mask uses kaolin clay to remove toxins, pollutants, dead skin and nasties from your skin. It’ll not only help to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, but it’ll reduce skin inflammation and provide anti-aging benefits. Clogged pores, pimples? See ya! This is a clay mask we add to our cart time and time again.
Want plump, firmer, healthier skin? Who doesn’t. This mask is your (or your mum’s) new best friend. Enriched with collagen, omega oils and peptides, this sheet mask will help to improve and maintain your skin’s elasticity while giving you a gorgeous glow. You can also store it in the fridge for a refreshing and de-puffing effect!
Giving your skin an instant hydration boost, this mask helps to fight dull-looking skin and uneven texture. Packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C and bioactive ingredients, it’s gonna make your mama glow (we promise).
Manicure & pedicures
Okay, so while you can’t take mum out to get her nails done, you can do them for her at home. It’s a lot easier than it looks, and we even wrote an entire blog about at home manicures, which you should give a read first 👀. If you can’t visit mum, send her our blog, collect all the supplies she needs and surprise her with them!
Here are the basics you’ll need for an at-home manicure/pedicure:
After a manicure, don’t forget to follow it all up with some nourishing hand creams!
Baths cure all woes - there’s nothing quite like a relaxing soak in the tub after a long day, and they have a tonne of health benefits too. Helping mum create the perfect bath is super simple (check out our post on relaxing baths for some tips).
To start, set the mood with some scented candles. Then, pop some bath salts in to the hot water (try the Salt by Hendrix Pomegranate Cocosoak), prop some luxurious body wash on the side of the bath, put on a relaxing playlist and prepare her favourite beverage (whether that’s wine or tea). Don’t forget to roll a towel up so that she can rest her head while she soaks!
You can also create the perfect after-bath kit for her too. Fill a small hamper with some body wash, body scrubs, body oils (more on this below), a facial moisturiser and more!
What are body oils? Only the most moisturising, soothing and nourishing things you can put on your body! To complete your mum’s at-home spa day, you should totally spoil her with body oil. You can even treat her to a little massage too! Here are a few body oils we love:
This is the O.G product from Black Chicken Remedies - it’s what started the brand. Intensely hydrating, this oil delivers nutrients deep into the skin, leaving skin supple, glowing and oh-so-soft.
Want to smell like a tropical island? Us too. Made from virgin coconut oil and a unique blend of cold-pressed dilo, macadamia and sikeci oils, this oil moisturises and nourishes your skin. Use it as a massage oil, a bath oil or just to give your skin a daily hydration boost!
Our feet go through a lot, and sometimes they can get neglected. So to make your at-home spa day the best thing since sliced bread, treat mum to a relaxing and therapeutic foot soak this Mother’s Day.
To create the perfect foot soak, all you’ll need is a bowl big enough for two feet to fit inside (or foot spa if you have one) and bath salts. What are our favourite bath salts? We’re glad you asked! Give these a try:
- Salt by Hendrix Jasmine & Rose Luxe Oil + Salt Scrub
- Salt by Hendrix Lavender & Hibiscus Soak Infusion
