02 May How to Get Mom Summer-Ready this Mother’s Day
When your mom deserves the world, finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be tough. She’s your biggest cheerleader, #1 on speed dial and your go-to for just about anything. If you can’t get her the island she deserves, we’re making the case for you to pick her up something else instead—like a gift card to Fusion.
Now through Mother’s Day, we’re giving you a little something (a $50 gift for Aveda products, to be exact) when you get a $200 gift card for mom. Your mom can use that gift card for anything she’d like. We’ve outlined some suggestions on we think she’d like to use it for to get her refreshed and ready for the new summer season. (We like to think it’s what she would want on that island she’s waiting on from you, anyway.)
GO FOR GLAM
If your mom has a special occasion planned, we’d love to have her in and give her a fresh summer-inspired updo. From braids to added jewels, summer is the perfect time to have a little fun with your party hair.
This glam style adds a touch of sparkle—perfect for a wedding, gala or cocktail event. We can keep the updo simple to let her added shine stand out—or go for #goals with a bold, all-eyes-on-you look. (Especially perfect if you or any of your siblings are walking down the aisle soon!)
For the fuss-free, easygoing mom, a braided updo is exactly what we’d love to style on her. Braids add a touch of youthfulness and trendiness, giving your mom those low-key, cool-mom vibes—perfect for backyard weddings or special beachside date nights.
GIVE HER SOME GLOW
Even though the days of late night feedings and temper tantrums are behind her, your mom deserves some extra glow on the beach this year. Our 30, 60 and 90-minute Aveda facials are completely customized based on her skin’s specific needs—from fine lines and wrinkles, to sun spots and acne-prone skin.
For even more relaxation and guaranteed to bring her a refreshed glow from within, a massage tailor-made for mom might be the way to go. Read more about why your mom deserves a massage (along with their many, many benefits) here.
FIND HER NEW FAVORITES
If your mom has pretty good genes (thanks in advance, by the way) — she might owe it to an extensive regimen of good habits and great skincare. Introduce mom to Aveda Tulasara Wedding Masque Overnight, and you might be asked if she’s your sister more than you think. Inspired by the Haldi ceremony from India, a pre-wedding tradition in which a homemade turmeric paste is applied to the bride and groom for glowing skin on their wedding day, your mom can reap the same benefits of glowy, firmer skin every single day, when applied routinely at night.
From the holidays to the summer heat alike—SPF is crucial. Make sure you mom is protected every day with Aveda Daily Light Guard. Its dermatologist-tested formula makes this lightweight, sheer defense buildable—without clogging her pores. It’s an essential we keep in our beach bags and on our vanities, because maintaining a sun protection routine lowers the risk of skin cancer, sun spots and decreases early signs of aging.
