Even though we believe that every day *IS* Mother’s Day, it certainly doesn’t hurt to make your affections a bit more obvious every now and then. With our body’s natural ageing process, the skin layers thin out. Skin loses its ability to hold on to its natural moisture and due to the breakdown of skin's connective tissues—collagen and elastin—fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. Plus, exposure to the harsh UV sun rays causes photo ageing that can lead to pigmentation issues like uneven skin tone and dark spots.
The aim of any skincare regimen is to aid your skin in maintaining its optimal hydration and appear fresh and revitalised, by curtailing the damage caused by environmental aggressors. So, this Mother’s Day pamper your mother with these luxurious skincare products we have handpicked that are sure to care for her skin and keep it aglow with health, making her feel and look her best.
For Intensive Repair
L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Serum
This lightweight and fast-absorbing formula help tackle everyday skin challenges effortlessly. Environmental aggressors like heat, harsh sun rays, dust, and high levels of pollution, often make skin look dull and lackluster. A night serum containing Immortelle essential oil sourced from Corsica along with Acmella oleacera and marjoram extracts, it promises to leave skin de-stressed and looking well-rested, with a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines within just a week.
For Complete Care
Forest Essentials Soundarya Radiance Cream
Infused with precious 24k gold, which penetrates deep into the skin layers to improve radiance and elasticity, this cream deeply moisturises and delays collagen depletion. Enriched with the wholesome goodness of pure ghee, saffron, and liquorice root extract, it smoothes out fine lines, boosts collagen production, and keeps skin firm and youthful. With SPF 25, this modern Ayurvedic potion keeps skin supple, bright, and fresh all day long.
For Enhancing Skin Texture
Pixi Botanical Collagen Mask
Ensuring that skin stays plump with hydration and its diminished collagen levels are restored, this leave-on mask is suitable for all skin types. Containing acacia collagen (purely plant-based) together with skin-loving arginine amino acid, it deeply moisturises and smoothens skin from within to make it naturally luminous and youthful. Cruelty-free, its special peptides increase skin’s elasticity and firmness, and its concoction of lavender, spearmint, and sage extracts soothe and revitalise skin thoroughly.
For Tackling Dark Circles
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery
An antioxidant powerhouse, this feather-light formula promises to reduce dark circles within three weeks of regular use. With its unique Concentrated Repair Technology, it aids in neutralising the damage due to lack of sleep, UV sun rays, pollution, and even blue light. Offering up to 24 hours of hydration with an effective humectant like hyaluronic acid, this gel crème has proven to brighten, de-puff, and revive the delicate orbital area by supporting the skin’s natural repair process.
For Intense Moisturisation
The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
This potent body butter packed with antioxidants and healthy fatty acids instantly replenishes skin’s lost moisture and promises up to 48 hours of hydration. It contains shea butter from Tamale, Ghana, and organic babassu oil from Brazil, both sourced responsibly through community trade. With a delicate nutty fragrance, this cruelty-free and vegan formula effectively tackles dryness by effortlessly sinking into the epidermis and is ideal for dry skin types.
For Optimal Sun Protection
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Mineral Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+
Mineral sunscreens provide better protection from the destructive UV sun rays as they reflect these rays back and do not allow them to get absorbed into the skin. Doing so with the help of titanium dioxide, this broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen with added antioxidant benefits protects skin efficiently while leaving it with a matte finish. Non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, and dermatologically tested, it is safe for sensitive and blemished skin types even. Plus, it is slightly tinted to enhance your natural skin tone.
