Women are incredible beings. They embody strength, spirit and determination. They are partners, caretakers, entrepreneurs, politicians, innovators, thought leaders—the list goes on and on. Because of these many important roles women take on, practising self-love and self-nurture can often fall to the wayside.
On this Mother’s Day, we invite mothers and daughters to hit pause on life’s cacophony and indulge in a little self-care.
We’ve created this home spa ritual to help you renew, recharge and relax.
Step 1: Create a peaceful space
Pick a place in your house that brings you peace, and where you’re less likely to be interrupted. Put on your favourite calming music, light some clean-burning candles and diffuse stress-reducing essential oils.
Step 2: Revitalize with a beauty elixir
Indulge in a calming herbal tea or one of our favourite beauty elixirs. We love our Cherry Beauty, made with freshly squeezed lemon, Camu Camu berry powder, acerola cherry powder, vanilla bean and orange extract. This refreshing drink is packed with Vitamin A and C and helps brighten your mood.
Step 3: Pamper your skin with Retreatment’s Instant Glow Masque
Our Instant Glow Masque is not only soothing, but it’s also a nutrient-rich tonic for your face. Made with antioxidant-rich emu apple, Kakadu plum, Amazonian buriti fruit, kale and papaya enzymes, this intoxicating masque will leave your skin radiantly glowing. We recommend gently applying the masque to your freshly washed face and leaving on for 15-20 minutes. You might experience a slight tingle. Don’t worry- that’s the fruit acids doing their work. Rinse off with warm water and a soft cloth.
Step 4: Remind yourself you are wonderful
Let’s face it: Life can be tough. Sometimes you question or doubt yourself. The truth is—no person is perfect and we can only do the best we can. And that is enough. While you’re taking this time to decompress, repeat affirmations that resonate with you. Remember: Embrace your inner strength, it's ok to relax, breathe, and treat yourself well.
Step 5: Complete your ritual with a rejuvenating facial massage
Now that you’re relaxed and recharged, we recommend completing your Mother’s Day home spa ritual by gifting your face with a tension-relieving gentle facial massage. While you massage, feel love and appreciation for your skin, your laughing eyes and loving smile. We love using our antioxidant-rich Restore Serum face oil elixir.
