How I Treat Myself for Mother’s Day.

I can’t believe that it is Mother’s Day on Sunday. I have been dreading this weekend because I unexpectedly lost my Mom last year and my first Mother’s Day without her is going to be hard. For the past eight years, my Mother, sister, daughter and I would treat ourselves by having a girl’s weekend away to the same location. This special weekend away was always so much fun and something to look forward to. With such busy lives where we didn’t make enough time to treat ourselves, we knew we would get away and do it for one weekend. After a little discussion, my sister, daughter and I decided to continue the tradition without our Mom because she wouldn’t have it any other way. Mom was the queen of planning and fun — from trips to treating us. In her memory and from here on out, we will be celebrating Mother’s Day by treating ourselves and sharing lots of memories. 

Like we have done previous Mother's Day weekends away, we have a quick weekend getaway planned. We are all at the perfect age to be treating ourselves to some good food, shopping, and some much-needed spa treatments.

When I go away for a girl’s trip like my upcoming Mother’s Day weekend getaway, my makeup bag is lighter than normal; I only pack the absolute essentials. Especially this Sunday when I have a facial and a few other spa treatments planned, I will be wearing minimal makeup. One product that will be in my makeup bag is L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer

Age Perfect Cell Renewal® Rosy Tone Moisturizer is a must-have for me; it gives my skin a rosy, healthy-looking blush. Thanks to the rosy pigments that are in this daily moisturizing cream, my skin immediately looks less tired. As I’ve gotten older, my skin looks more dull and lackluster. By getting regular facials like the one I have planned this weekend and using a product like Rosy Tone Moisturizer, my skin is on the path to looking better.

Rosy Tone Moisturizer is a tinted moisturizer with tone flattering pigments perfect for anyone at any age. These pigments plus ingredients like Imperial Peony Extracts, LHA, and Hyaluronic Acid, make my skin instantly look revived. It feels so lightweight and gentle on my skin, plus it leaves a velvety, soft finish on the skin, too. 

I look forward to going away with my daughter and sister to celebrate Mother’s Day and continue our tradition. Even though it’s just for a short 24 hours, I realize that I need to take the time to treat myself. If there is one thing that the last nine months since losing my Mother have taught me, it is that I need to treat myself more often. No matter your age or how you plan to spend Mother’s Day, please make the time and treat yourself at some point this weekend. You don’t need to splurge on a weekend away or a spa treatment; treating yourself can be as simple as taking a walk by yourself, meeting a friend for coffee, buying a new beauty product or taking a long hot bath. Happy Mother’s Day.
