Mother’s Day: a gift to treat her like a queen

- Advertisement -

For many of us was the first truly great beauty icon, the one to look at to understand how to apply mascara and not smudge lipstick, the one that taught us the importance of the first steps for proper skincare and love for your skin and body. The one who combed us as little girls and filled us with headbands and braids and who took us to the hairdresser for the first time to make us a grown-up cut. Maybe the one who also helped us put the nail polish on when our first approaches to manicure bordered on disaster. The one in whose scent, intoxicating, sweet and reassuring, we have lost ourselves many times. Mom is pure beauty.

And even if we all agree with Mahatma Gandhi’s phrase “It might be possible to gild pure gold, but who can make his mother more beautiful?” beauty pampering for her are always the sweetest gift to give her. So to be on the safe side May 8, on Mother’s Day, focusing on a beautiful thought is always the right choice. And, of course, the beauty universe is also industrializing to dedicate something special to it: in fact, there are many ad hoc initiatives for Mother’s day.
