Beauty tips for moms

Mother’s Day and summer are around the corner, so it’s a great time for busy moms to think about pampering themselves for their special day and the warmer months ahead. Here are 5 ways to use your Mother’s Day hall pass to feel beautiful and relaxed!

Mom looking in the mirror

Create an at-home spa

To detox your body, pour 2 cups of Epsom salt into a bathtub along with a few drops of Eucalyptus oil. The Epsom salt will help relieve stiff muscles and bloating, while the oil will rejuvenate your senses. For a luxurious experience, try pouring two cups of milk along with a few drops of lavender oil into a bathtub to soften your skin and calm your mind.

Recapture your glow with a radiant mask

For a refreshing mask, grate ¼ of a cucumber and mix with plain yogurt. Apply to your face for 20 minutes and rinse off gently. For a firming mask, combine one egg white with a teaspoon of honey and apply to your face for 20 minutes before rinsing off with cool water.

Strengthen your hair with a protein treatment

Dissolve a packet of clear gelatin (which contains high levels of protein) into hot water. Massage through your hair, leave on for 30 minutes and rinse out thoroughly.

Give yourself a faux glow

Try one of the new at-home spray tan devices, such as Luminess Tan,  for an instant tan that can last up to two weeks (try to get your hubby to help with your back!). Another option to try is a moisturizer with a tint and self-tanner such as Clinique Self Sun Tinted Lotion in Medium-Deep. The tint will not only give you instant color, but will be a guide to make sure you cover your entire body evenly. Be sure to exfoliate your body with a loofah or exfoliating body wash before your self-tan.

Finish the look with "post-vacation" makeup

Let everyone think you just returned home from a luxurious tropical vacation! Fake flawless bronzed skin with a primer and bronzer combination, such as Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer in Bronze Tint with SPF 20. Enhance your glow with a sheer lip stain in a peach or berry tint, such as Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Flush or Petal.
