Moms often deny themselves for the benefit of others, so on Mother’s Day, consider giving her the gift of beautiful skin. For many women, a skincare routine at the beginning and the end of the day is a special moment of peace and of connecting to themselves. Helping your favorite person take care of her skin is a gift she’ll appreciate all throughout the year.
Tired and dull skin is often the result of stress that compromises the skin’s own capacity for natural renewal. Just as the eyes are the mirrors to the soul, the skin reflects the effect of stress on the mind. Loum was developed with a leading psycho-dermatologist to reduce not only the destructive impact of stress on your skin, but on your mind as well. The exclusive Tri-Serene, a psycho-dermatology complex, is made of natural ingredients such as marine microalgae, Indian wild indigo, and 250 mg of broad spectrum CBD.
The Loum Tranquil Radiance Nutrient Mask will smooth stress lines and any weariness out of your mom’s visage in 20 minutes, thanks to its powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that will leave her looking and feeling reenergized and more serene. All of the typical telltale signs of an exhausting day, such as dark circles, fine lines, droopiness and drabness, will be starkly diminished. In just a few minutes, her epidermis will simply look louminous, plumper and fresher with hormones rebalanced and quietness restored — in a word: beautiful. Add The Stress Detox Enzymatic Cleanser and the Loum Pure Serenity Golden C Moisturizer to keep the loveliness going.
Exfoliation is often neglected by more mature women lest it destroy the lipid barrier defending their thinning skin. Yet at any age, exfoliating your skin is essential to unclog pores, shed debris, and whisk dead skin cells away (since they render your epidermis dull-looking, congested and uneven). It’s also recommended to increase cellular turnover, which slows with age. Trinny London, the beauty queen from London, has launched a collection of three gentle exfoliants to help every woman achieve glowing skin no matter what her skin type or condition. Give mom the Trinny London PHA Exfoliant Tiptoe, a super gentle formula with a low acid content to help the skin surface refine itself gently. She should apply 2 pumps to clean her face, neck and décolleté. Then after allowing the skin to fully absorb it, apply a serum or moisturizer. This formula is suitable for very sensitive skin. Ingredients include gluconolactone (PHA), lactobionic acid (PHA), trehalose and glycine bonded azelaic acid. For more experienced exfoliating users, gift the Trinny London AHA Exfoliant Reveal Yourself or the Trinny London BHA Exfoliant Find your Balance.
Note that refills are available to avoid waste; simply refill the pumps with refill bottles. Mom will appreciate the gesture!
After exfoliating, nourish skin with Trinny London Overnight Sensation to revive skin that has lost its oomph. The superior retinoid treatment comprises retinal+ (an advanced form) and intelligent granactive retinoid® to visibly firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Mom will wake up with fresher skin that gets noticed.

For some serious skin refurbishing and maintenance at night, hand your mom a bottle of Restoracell Stem Cell Awakening Serum that penetrates beneath the epidermis to replace damaged proteins with new elastin and collagen at the cellular level.
