As Mother’s Day approaches, we pay special attention to the mothers in our lives. And that includes new and expectant moms – how can we pamper them for their first ever Mother’s Day?
One common thing that all moms deserve (moms-to-be included) is the gift of rest and relaxation, and an Éminence Spa treatment is a great way to start. Whether it’s a facial, massage or even a selection of products to use at home, there are plenty of spa gift options for Mom this Mother’s Day. Here’s our recommendation on pregnancy-safe skin care treatments and products that can be used at home or in the spa room.
The Gift Of Aromatherapy
in the second and third trimesters, some essential oils are safe to use, as your baby is more developedA lingering feeling of nausea and changes in mood and sleep patterns are just a few things to “expect while you’re expecting”. Essential oils and herbs are a natural solution to address all of these issues and more. According to Fit Pregnancy, “in the second and third trimesters, some essential oils are safe to use, as your baby is more developed”. These oils include lavender, chamomile and ylang ylang which calm, relax and aid sleep. Pregnancy symptoms and sensitivities can vary from person to person though, so it’s always best to consult with your family doctor before undertaking any new treatments.
Gift Idea: A quick spritz of our Soothing Chamomile Tonique will calm and de-stress any type of mom on your list. Gentle enough for pregnant and nursing mothers, this product soothes the senses and nourishes the skin with calming ingredients like lavender, chamomile and aloe.
Spa Treatment: The Coeur d’Alene Resort Spa in Idaho features a variety of customized Mother’s Day treatments this year. For the ultimate in relaxation and indulgence, this luxurious location is offering a full day spa experience for moms that features a chamomile body exfoliation, massage, facial, pedicure and manicure.
The Gift Of Smooth, Supple Skin
your skin also needs to be hydrated for optimal skin elasticity As your bundle of joy begins to grow, the skin around the stomach area expands, often causing stretch marks. One of the most effective ways to relieve stretch marks is by hydrating the skin. According to popular pregnancy blog, The Healthy Honeys, “your skin also needs to be hydrated for optimal skin elasticity”. Make sure your skin is in its best shape by drinking plenty of water and using rich and moisturizing products on your tummy area.
Gift Idea: Our Apricot Body Oil is a must have for many pregnant moms. This award-winning product contains a mixture of intensely nourishing ingredients like apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil and seabuckthorn oil that deeply moisturize the skin, leaving it more soft and supple.
Momma-to-be Spa Treatments: With locations in both St. Albert and Edmonton, Alberta, Sweet Momma Spa offers a unique spa experience for pregnant moms. Specializing in pregnancy and family wellness, both locations are passionate about providing a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere where expectant mothers can “unwind, indulge, and realize the joy of becoming a Sweet Momma.”
The Gift Of Flawless Skin
The hormones HCG and progesterone increase the number of oil glands in your face which can create a surge of hormonal breakouts during pregnancy The hormones HCG and progesterone increase the number of oil glands in your face which can create a surge of hormonal breakouts during pregnancy (Fit Pregnancy). Our friends at Stevenson Farms Bed & Breakfast and Harvest Spa in Alliston, Ontario recommend our Eight Greens Collection of products for treating hormonal breakouts:
“The Eight Greens products offer natural phytoestrogens from yucca extract to help normalize oil production and reduce breakouts,” comments Harvest Spa esthetician Christine. As some women may also experience increased skin sensitivity during pregnancy, it’s best to choose the non-stimulating version of our Eight Greens Phyto Masqueuntil after the baby arrives.
Gift Idea: Our Eight Greens Collection is available in Starter Sets, and is a great way to introduce mom to a new skin care routine this Mother’s Day. Visit our Starter Sets page for more gift ideas for mom.
