Upgrading your beauty routine doesn’t have to cost a fortune. On the occasion of Mother’s Day (on May 12), it’s time to indulge yourself—or the woman in your life—the best way you can. Drool worthy, must have beauty and wellness products that will make you look like the Glam Goddess you feel.
You’re worth your weight in gold
Swimsuit weather demands gleaming skin, luminous complexions and glossy tresses. And that’s what these skin and hair products will give you. Time to shed the dull, drab hair and listless skin of cold, drier months and restore the sheen and luster to your skin and strands. Bring out creamy body washes replete with alpha hydroxy fruit acids that are gentle enough to use daily without causing irritation. Pick hair products just right for your hair type –dry, greasy or colored—that cleanse, soothe and soften, restoring moisture and bounce to tresses. Combine this with a sensible diet, fresh air and a regular exercise regime and you’ll surprise yourself with the transformation.
Glow from within and without
Beauty may be skin deep but there’s plenty you can do to put your best face forward. The ‘barely there’ look rules. Sheer, tinted moisturizers, illuminators and shimmery mousse-powder formulations are big right now if you’re one of the lucky ones with a clear, even toned visage. If not, panic not. Cover up acne marks, discolorations and patchy skin with a concealer and finish up with a light dusting of body shimmer or an illuminating face product.
Lips that speak volumes
There’s no denying that there’s something irresistible about a sheer, glistening pout. Start by exfoliating dry flaky skin and hydrate lips with a moisturizing lip balm. Go with a tinted lip balm, lip gloss or a lip liner if you want to keep things natural. The finely ground micro pearls in lip gloss creates a shimmering, sheer finish, perfect for lazy brunches and hanging out with friends. For a more dressy look, choose from a host of satiny lipsticks. Chirpy, pop tints are hot right now. A quick trick to plump up your pout: rub a pinch of cinnamon on your pucker. The spice mildly irritates the delicate skin, making lips appear fuller.
The world at your finger tips
This year is all about creamy pastels, shimmery nudes, metallic sheens and crazy texture effects for your nails! Sure, you can’t go wrong with light as air pinks and neutral peach-flecked hues but add a little more fun to your life with candy pop tints like lavender, egg yellow, powder blue and mint green. Or just go all out with chirpy hues like slurpy orange and juicy corals that pack a punch. Metallic shades and terrific textures too are hot right now for just the right chic finishing touch. As we say, let your fingers do the talking…
Pamper your senses
It’s hard work being a mother; multi-taskers par excellence who manage their homes, families and work with élan, poise and confidence. In the hustle bustle of life, it’s easy to forget to eat healthy and take your vitamins on time. However, there’s no denying that women have special health and wellness needs at different phases of their lives. Choose from a thoughtfully selected range of herbal and natural supplements to support strong bones, bladder health, hormone balance and heart health. So that you stay fighting fit year after year.
