Alice Solomon came up with Gorgeous Grandma Day in the 1980s. She wanted people to take time on July 23rd to celebrate the beauty grandmothers possess. This year, take your mom out for a day filled with pampering.
As you get older, fine lines, sagging skin, and other changes to the body can make you feel frumpy. The clothes you used to love don’t fit the same. The skin doesn’t seem as radiant. Does this sound like your mom? A spa day can help boost her self-esteem.
What Services Might Appeal to Her the Most?
The services you want your mom to have will be the ones that make her feel better about herself. Skin treatments that help add moisture and radiance help. After that, get her a haircut/style so that her new hairdo makes her feel new and improved.
Get a manicure and pedicure. Get a bold, cheery color. Take plenty of photos to share with her friends and family members. You can have the best photos framed for her to keep at home.
After the spa trip, you could take her shopping for new clothes. One new outfit that looks and feels good can really improve your self-esteem. You don’t have to spend a lot. Clearance racks and thrift shops are good for shopping on a budget.
What if You Can’t Afford It?
What if you cannot afford a full spa day out? There are really good spa treatment options you can bring home. Things like a foot peel remove dead skin to leave the skin looking young and radiant. A facial mask also helps remove dead skin. For just a few dollars, you can buy packages that contain treatments for hair, skin, and nails.
You could have a “girl’s day” by making your own spa products using ingredients you have in the kitchen. Coconut oil, avocado, and chamomile tea are some of the popular ingredients in homemade skincare products. Make and use the products and spend time chatting on the back patio while the masks and hair care treatments sit for the appropriate time.
Help your mom feel better about herself by hiring elderly care services.
When you can’t spend time with her, she’ll have caregivers for companionship. Companionship is one of the most popular home care services. There are others like transportation, appointment scheduling, and medication reminders. Call an elderly care agency to discuss prices.
