Mother’s Day is a perfect time to get back to basics with mum and the family and just enjoy each others company. If you’re not sure what to do for mum on the day, it doesn’t have to be anything flashy! Simply taking the time to do something special for her will mean the world.
7 Ideas for Making Mother’s Day Special
~ make the day all about her – really take time to think about what mum likes
~ make her breakfast – try something new and different to show you really care. Like this comforting Shakshuka recipe (delicious and super simple!) Tip: add rosemary. This handy little herb can help protect skin cells from damage often caused by the sun and free radicals. Rosemary contains antibacterial and antioxidant rosmarinic acid, plus several essential oils known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties.
~ spend time with her doing things she likes or just talking about things that interest her
~ make her a DIY beauty treatment – try our DIY Beauty Recipe for Anti-Wrinkle Eye Serum (instructions below). This serum is soothing, all natural and something you and mum can do together when winding down for the day.
~ watch her favourite movie with her
~ do the dishes, washing, shopping, cleaning – whatever you can to help make her day special
~ buy her a Lip Nourish 🙂
DIY Beauty Recipe – Anti Wrinkle Eye Serum
1. Combine a teaspoon of aloe vera gel with 2 drops of jojoba oil and 2 drops of pure Vitamin E oil. Note the aloe vera will not combine perfectly with the oils.
2. Mix well.
3. Gently massage under eyes before bed and rinse in the morning
Due to aloe vera’s high water content it is a great way to hydrate, moisturise and rejuvenate the skin. Not only is jojoba intensely moisturising but it also reduces inflammation and puffiness around the eye whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines.
TIP: You can also use this as a treatment for any dry or irritated sports around the body and face.
Make sure mum has a lovely day xx
