As Mother’s Day approaches, moms everywhere are envisioning the gifts that will undoubtedly come their way.
Breakfast in bed—depending on the age of the children and whether or not they had adult supervision, this could be a delicious delight or a test of your acting abilities.
Beautiful cards—handmade with crayon and glitter or carefully selected from the store with key words underlined, the sentiment is real and can bring tears to your eyes.
Bouquets of flowers—handpicked from the backyard and presented by little hands or wonderfully styled by a professional florist delivered to your door.
These, other gifts and gestures, and the love with which they are presented are truly appreciated. But Mother’s Day gift giving doesn’t have to be limited to your children. It’s okay for moms to give themselves a little something for Mother’s Day, too. You’ve earned it!
Here are three ways to practice a little self-care without taking huge chunks of time from your already overbooked schedule.
Hair toss, check your nails
You may not always have time for a relaxing manicure and sometimes the most you can do with your hair is throw it in a ponytail before you walk out the door, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show your hair and nails a little love.
A daily supplement, like Nutrilite™ Hair, Skin & Nail Health, promotes strong, flexible nails, supports healthy hair and encourages smooth, elastic skin. It also has vitamin C and grape seed extract, antioxidants that protect against free radicals.
Beauty from within
A traditional daily beauty regimen should include the lotions or creams needed to supply essential moisture to the outer layers of your skin, such as Artistry Hydra-V™ Replenishing Moisture Cream or Artistry Youth Xtend™ Enriching Lotion. But you can also support healthy skin by protecting and enhancing the vital moisture it needs on the inside.
The Truvivity by Nutrilite™ Hydrating System includes TruAqua™ Dietary Supplement and TruAqua™ Powder Drink. It’s designed to work deep within, enhancing and protecting skin moisture to support skin elasticity and smoothness†.
The supplement features carefully selected, plant-based antioxidant and moisture-protecting ingredients to support your skin’s foundational moisture structure, while the drink provides vitamin C and cranberry extract for a hydrating boost that helps support skin health and protects against free radicals.
Speedy spa treatment
Can you find seven minutes in your day? That’s all it takes to enjoy one of the treatments from the new Artistry Signature Select™ Mask collection, which features a five masks, each targeting a different treatment: polishing, brightening, hydrating, purifying and firming.
They are designed to be used alone or you can #multimask by applying them to different areas of your face at the same time. (Make sure to avoid the eye area and do not overlap masks.)
Or, add a few minutes to your bath or shower to benefit from the skin-loving ingredients of coconut oil and shea butter found in the Artistry Studio™ Bath Fizzy. It will also fill the room with a signature fragrance that will inspire a mental escape.
These are great ways to sneak in a little “me time” with #selfcare at the end of a long day—maybe even at the end of Mother’s Day. After all, being showered with extra love and presents all day can be exhausting!
