April 25, 2022
If there’s anyone in your circle that you’d go all out for it’s probably the Mother figure in your life. She tended to you when you were sick, cooked you your favorite meals, and often consoled you when someone broke your heart. Now, it’s time to return the favor and give her a gift straight from the heart this Mother’s Day. But instead of the usual flowers and chocolates, why not give her the gift of self-care and a gorgeous complexion—courtesy of Goodhabit. An at-home spa day is the perfect way to pamper mom while getting in some quality time. Not sure where to begin? Read on for our take on the perfect Mother’s Day spa day plus the multitasking Goodhabit products Mom will love for the day and beyond.
Set The Scene
Add spa director to your resume by putting together a soothing set-up for a DIY spa day. To start, dim the lights and place freshly-scented candles like lavender, bergamot, or green tea throughout the space. This not only creates a zen environment for Mom to relax, but also, adds a warm, cozy feel that mimics an actual spa.
Prepare A Snack
Since this is likely an all-day activity it’s best to have some refreshments on hand in case mom (or you) get peckish. Skip a big meal, and make some of Mom’s favorite snacks. If you need some ideas a cheese plate, charcuterie board, fruit, and veggies are all great options. We also recommend making some cucumber infused water to amplify the at-the-spa vibes.
Give Her A Cozy ‘Fit
Comfort is key on spa days, so make sure to provide Mom with a cozy get-up to lounge induring her at-home spa experience. Think a matching set of pajamas, a robe, and a soft set of slippers to ensure she’s feeling as if she’s on a comfy cloud from top-to-toe.
Cleanse and Exfoliate
Now that the ambience is nailed down, let’s get into the spa experience itself. A facial is a must for any spa day, so pamper Mom’s complexion with some much-needed cleansing and exfoliation. Begin with our rinse-free Clean Scene Micellar Gel ($28) which whisks away both waterproof and long-wearing formulas alike, as well as dirt, excess oil, and impurities without stripping your skin of essential moisture. After the makeup, dirt, and grime is gone, reach for our NEW Glow On Oil Exfoliator ($36) to give mom some gentle exfoliation by removing debris and dead skin cells from your skin's surface without causing irritation. It combines the powers of physical and biochemical exfoliation for a gentle-yet-effective excoriation that’s packed with nutrient-rich oils that work to smooth, soften, and brighten skin instantly.
Once her complexion is freshly-cleansed, you’ll want to move onto the masking portion. The treatment you choose will depend on her skin type and goals. Our Glow On Enzyme Mask ($55) is essential for Mom’s who want to revive their dull, dry complexion. The gentle, yet effective, resurfacing formula that is packed with a combination of natural fruit enzymes, AHAs, and replenishing oils to kick your radiance up a level and rehydrate skin. Does she need something a bit more nourishing? Apply our Rescue Me Rest & Reset Mask + Moisturizer ($48) for an intensely nourishing mask-meets-moisturizer moment. While the mask is meant to work overnight, you can also leave it on Mom for 20-30 minutes for an immediate moisture boost.
Moisturize, Hydrate and Glow
Nothing says a pamper sesh more than nothished, hydrated skin. Luckily, at Goodhabit, we have lots of moisturizing options that are perfect for Mom. Our fan-fave Water Jelly Dew Cream ($39) is the quintessential gel-cream that delivers heavyweight hydration with a lightweight texture thanks to a mix of hyaluronic acid to lock moisture into skin to create a softer, plumper appearance, while a blend of 20% humectants draw water for a smoother, more radiant appearance with a dewy glow. For a treatment-meets-serum product give Mom a hit of our Glow Potion Oil Serum ($59) for a fast-absorbing, triple-layered oil serum that combines three products into one streamlined bottle. The youth-boosting blend saturates your skin with hydration, while promoting both collagen production and overall firmness to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Top off the facial with a swipe of Butter Together Nourishing Treatment Balm ($16) for an ultra-emollient lip formula that protects and hydrates your lips, delivering a visibly plump, soft, and supple appearance.
