Ways to pamper mum this Mother’s Day

by Rio Rosa Mosqueta on March 13, 2017


With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d share our top tips on how to treat the special lady in your life, whether she’s your mum, the mother of your children or a yummy mummy-to-be!

1. Organise a pamper day

Give her the gift of relaxation. Your local spa will no doubt have special packages for Mother’s Day and many offer treatments specially designed for mums-to-be.

If your budget doesn’t stretch to a spa voucher, why not create an ‘at-home’ spa experience for her instead? Treat her to some new luxury skincare products so she can enjoy a facial and run her a nice bath with candles to create a calm, serene atmosphere.

A skincare package for an at-home spa experience should include scented bath oils, an exfoliating scrub to smooth her skin, Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil to leave her skin feeling soft and hydrated and a rich body butter.

2. Treat her to afternoon tea

It’s the perfect, decadent way to spend Mother’s Day! Whether you make your own or head out to your local hotel or restaurant, it’s a lovely way to create special memories. And it also means your mum doesn’t have to cook, which will get you even more brownie points!

3. Have a girl’s night in

Popcorn? Check. Favourite movie? Check. DIY beauty treatments? Check. This is all you need for a girl’s night in. Spend some quality time together making your own natural body oils, masks and scrubs. One of our favourite DIY recipes is to mix 1 cup of sugar with olive oil and a few drops of almond oil and Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil. Massage into the skin in circular movements and leave on for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water you’ll be left with super soft skin!

4. Help her discover new skincare products

Everyone loves receiving new skincare products, so why not introduce your mum to a new skincare range? It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with skincare, so receiving new products as gifts is a great excuse to mix things up and try something new. Our Rosehip Discovery Set is the perfect Mother’s Day gift, and contains our three-step programme for naturally beautiful skin in handy miniatures. Find out more.

5. Don’t forget the mums-to-be!

Being pregnant is a really special time, but it can also be very tiring! We’re sure all the mums-to-be would appreciate a treat this Mother’s Day to make them feel special before their bundle of joy arrives! Our best-selling Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil is the perfect gift for pregnant ladies. It’s 100% natural and doesn’t contain any nasties, so is safe for mum and baby. It can be used on baby bumps to keep the skin soft and supple and help to prevent stretch marks. It’s also ideal for soothing any hormone-induced, sensitive dry patches!

Don’t forget there’s 15% off the entire Rosa Mosqueta range online until the end of March with the code 1MUM – SHOP NOW.

Psst…are you a Mum yourself? Share this post to drop a few hints to your kids!
