Skincare or otherwise; how would we survive without our mom’s advice?

Mother’s Day, a day honoring mothers and mother figures and celebrating their love, sacrifice and influence in our lives. It’s a day to reflect on the lessons our moms have taught us, including the importance of self care and looking after ourselves.

From birth, mothers nurture us, feed us and look after us, both emotionally and physically, and as we get older, teach us how to ensure our own health and happiness. They show us that self-care is not selfish, but necessary for our overall well-being, but they don’t always lead by example! Moms can be guilty of putting everyone else first, taking care of everyone else but themselves and this Mother’s Day we want to make sure the tables are turned. To honor our mothers and the mother figures in our lives, Team Masktini is sharing the best self-care advice their mothers have given them and how they’re planning on spoiling their Moms this year!

Growing up, my mom would not stop reminding me to always, always remove my makeup before bed. Even when I would get in late and was too exhausted to do anything more than collapse into bed, she was there with cleanser and a washcloth, making sure my face was squeaky clean. Now that I’m older, I credit my mom and her advice for my skin looking this good and I don’t ever skip a cleanse! This Mother’s Day, I’ll be indulging in a little masking moment with my mom. We’re both huge fans of Masktini’s Gone Girl Tahitian Detox Mask for a deep cleanse whilst still nourishing our skin, so I’ll be truly honoring her advice and more importantly, making sure she follows it too!

Paying homage to our Indian roots, my mom instilled in me the importance of using high-quality, natural ingredients to care for our skin. From an early age, my childhood was filled with homemade yogurt-turmeric brightening face masks and aloe-cucumber cooling eye masks, weekly staples in our household. Although I’ve moved out, that won’t stop us having a virtual self-care night together on Facetime this Mother’s Day, and we’re still always on the hunt for products featuring high-quality, natural ingredients. This year we’ll be getting our glow on with Masktini’s Metal Head Gold Brightening Face, formulated with stabilized Vitamin C, Asian plant root extracts and pomegranate extracts to perfectly mimic the homemade brightening masks of my childhood.

I am yet to find a woman as prepared as my mother! No matter where she is or how busy she is, she doesn’t neglect her self-care and she’s taught me to do the same. From making sure to stock up on SPF for a day at the beach to always having a hydrating product handy for traveling where your skin can really go through it, she’s made sure I’m always prepared and taught me that there’s no excuse for neglecting your skin or your self-care! This year, I’ll be gifting her Masktini’s Woke Bae Whenever Moisture Spritz, the perfect product for making sure your skin is dewy and hydrated on the go. It’s a staple in my handbag and I know she’ll love it!

This Mother’s Day, we want to thank our moms for all they’ve done for us and reciprocate all the love and care they’ve showered us with our entire lives. They’re the reason we’re the women we are and we’re looking forward to treating them and looking after them as well as they look after us!
