Let’s face it: most mums are willing to move heaven and earth to keep their children happy, whether it means sacrificing their free time (and speed-shaving in the shower!), spending money they’d rather save or patiently listening to a 4 year old’s adorable but excruciatingly long-winded anecdotes.
Many mothers make these sacrifices without a single thought. That makes it all too easy for the rest of us to forget how much appreciation our mums truly deserve. Fortunately, Mother’s Day 2016 is just around the corner and makes for the perfect time to remind your mum just how much you appreciate everything she does.
Mums on the blog: stop reading right here! Don’t spoil your Mother’s Day surprise. Instead, print out a copy of this blog and leave it on the kitchen counter as a not-so-subtle hint to your S/O or offspring about how you’d like to be pampered this Mother’s Day (trust us – it’s all about relaxation, no surprise bungee jumps!).
Ahem – now that we’re alone, let’s talk about 5 Fantastic Ways to Pamper Your Mum or Spouse this Mother’s Day…
1) Breakfast in Bed
A great day begins with a great meal, so why not get into the kitchen and whip up one of mum’s favourite breakfasts? Whether it’s a nutritious acai bowl or a sinfully delicious combo of bacon and eggs, it’s time to pay mum back for all the times she’s cooked for you! After a bit of a lie in and a fantastic breakfast, surprise her with your plans for the day, including some of the intensely stress-reducing beauty treatments we’ve listed below.
2) Gel Polish Mani-Pedi
If your mum is the type of woman who always treats herself last, it’s time to schedule her in for some serious pampering. Remind her that she’s number one with a fantastic gel manicure from one of Adelaide’s most professional, luxury beauty salons. Polished Beauty is currently offering a fab, exclusive Mother’s Day deal, which combines nail filing, nail shaping, hygienic cuticle maintenance and an application of mum’s choice of any gel colour polish in the form of an indulgent mani-pedi. Gel manicures make a perfect gift, as they last up to 21 days!
3) A Relaxing Full Body Massage
Juggling work, relationships and everyday family dramas can cause even the most put together woman a toe-curling amount of stress. Unfortunately, this stress can manifest itself physically in the form of painful tension spots, especially around the neck and the shoulders.
Give your mum the relief she needs by booking her in for a divinely relaxing full body massage. Let her unwind in a peaceful environment with a backdrop of tranquil music while a trained massage therapist gently kneads away all that stress. Our Adelaide Polished Beauty salon even offers a complimentary foot soak to soothe any lingering tension.
4) A Rejuvenating Facial
When was the last time your mother treated herself to a professional salon facial? With the huge demands placed on the modern women, important self-care rituals like a proper skincare regime can sometimes fall by the wayside. Make sure that mum looks and feels her very best by booking her in for a completely rejuvenating facial.
Polished Beauty offers several different facial packages, each one including a full skincare consultation to identify skincare concerns and help your mother choose an appropriate treatment accordingly. For super stressed skin, we recommend the Polished Repair Facial, a treatment that focuses on rejuvenating dehydrated skin, boosting hydration and plumping up fine lines and wrinkles to fight the first signs of ageing.
5) Professional Grade Homecare Skincare Products
One of the best parts of a pampering session at a professional Adelaide beauty salon is trying out some new and exciting skincare products. Once your now perfectly pampered mum has finished her facial, why not complete the experience by treating her to some of the miracle homecare products used in the salon? Polished Beauty stocks a whole host of high-quality skincare products by the renowned Australian, cruelty-free brand Ultraceuticals, from everyday moisturisers to luxurious skin serums. Let mum take some home to help her remember her exquisite salon experience next time stress is creeping back up!
Once Mum’s big day of beauty and pampering has come to a close, it’s time to let her put her feet up at home and give her the best gift of all: a big cuddle. We hope these 5 ways to pamper your mum this Mother’s Day have given you the inspiration to truly spoil her this year – she deserves it!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Until next time,
Love The Skin You’re In,
