There are so many benefits to having a spa day. Offering to host a pampering session for someone in your life will not only make them feel special and cared for but will also help them rejuvenate both their body and mind. No one should ever feel guilty for enjoying a self-indulged spa experience in order to de-stress.
If there’s anyone that deserves some “me time,” it’s a hardworking mother. So, in order to help your own mom or a new mom that you know to take a load off her shoulders, treat her to an at-home spa day that will leave her feeling not only refreshed but loved.
Create a Salon Atmosphere
Okay, so instead of spending the day out at brunch to treat the mom in your life, why not make some use of that one-day bathroom remodel you had done during the lockdown and turn it into a calming environment? No mom will argue against fresh-looking skin, especially after the long months of being cooked up indoors with all the stay-at-home restrictions.
You could start off this mini-salon experience with a soothing facemask leaving her skin glowing after a nice sugar scrub. This will help the dead skin cells to peel off, giving her skin that’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
After a quick treatment, Mom will undoubtedly feel super relaxed. After her facial, offer to run her a bubble bath to soak in. Even day baths in a luxurious new bathtub are becoming more popular. If you have a durable tub, you can also throw in some nice bubbles and bath bombs to the mix. When it comes to a bathroom remodel, make good use of your new bathtub and offer your loved one a relaxing day bath for their comfort. Mom won’t want to leave the new bathroom/spa!
If you are looking to add more of a zen atmosphere to this DIY at-home spa, you can also add some fragrant candles and tranquil music to set a more peaceful mood. Also, make sure you have a glass of water for added comfort or some fresh fruit to give it that luxurious feel.
Help her with the burdens of decision-making.
Every mom, especially a new mom, has their minds wrapped around the daily grind of taking care of their children. Their days are mostly spent feeding their baby, changing diapers, researching possible baby stroller reviews, and are just overall stressed to the max. Offering them a spa day to disconnect is exactly what every mother needs to keep their mind and body healthy.
If your favorite lady happens to be looking for a stroller with a storage basket or a lightweight double stroller, you could make their day a little easier by planning a spa day plus helping them choose or pay for a jogging stroller. Helping this new mom is also a smart way of helping her to relax as it eases the decision-making burden of finding a new travel stroller for her baby or toddler.
After a day of facials, mani-pedis, and a bubble bath, you can set out some yummy snacks for the mom in your life and get some possible toddler riders and newborn bassinets on your laptop for her to choose from if she doesn’t already have these purchased. Try to think of it as a baby shower with the best stroller catalogs to browse through but better because you added beauty treatments. This special woman of the day will feel super pampered and immediately less stressed, no longer looking into any more baby stroller reviews for the best strollers on the market.
As the tranquil day comes to an end, make sure your mother or a new mom in your life leaves feeling at one with herself. Tell her to practice a five-minute meditation at the end to really close the experience on a relaxing note. This one special and single day is all anyone needs to feel a bit more appreciated whether it’s Mother’s Day or just Monday!
