Celebrate Mother’s Day With Good Skin Days
IN THIS ARTICLE
At Graydon Skincare, Mother’s Day isn’t just about celebrating moms in the traditional sense of the word. We believe that Mother’s Day is about honouring all mother-like figures.
So how can we show these powerful role models just how important they are to us? Gift them with a little self-care. After all they do for us, they deserve a few moments each day to indulge in simple pleasures that make them look and feel their best.
This Mother’s Day, give the gift of good skin days with these skincare recommendations.
The gift of glow
Complement your mom’s inner glow with Face Glow! This award winning product can be used alone as a tinted moisturizer, as a skin primer before makeup and as a highlighter.
Formulated with aloe vera juice and sea buckthorn seed oil to soothe and refresh the skin. It also contains raspberry seed oil, which helps to combat signs of aging, support the skin barrier and brighten the complexion. Plus, the addition of sustainably-sourced mica provides a subtle highlight for a truly radiant complexion.
Just like mom, our multitasking Face Glow does it all.
Tinted moisturizer not your mom’s thing? No problem.
Our multivitamin Moon Boost Serum has is formulated with non-comedogenic superfood oils and extracts to nourish the skin and give it a healthy glow.
Vitamin A from carrot seed oil helps to reduce the signs of aging. Vitamin D from shiitake mushroom helps to revitalize the skin. Vitamin F (AKA: omega-3 and omega-6) from AhiflowerⓇ oil helps to reinforce the skin barrier and slow transepidermal water loss. Vitamin K from prickly pear seed oil helps to even the complexion and diminish the appearance of dark circles.
The gift of hydration
Hydrated skin is happy skin and our Face Food Mineral Mist is just what busy moms need to keep their skin hydrated on the go!
Formulated with white tea, magnesium, zinc, copper and malachite, this facial mist helps to balance, rejuvenate and mattify the skin while also protecting against environmental stressors.
Another multitasker, Face Food can be used as a toner after cleansing and as a midday skin refresher. Mom will want one for her bathroom, one for her bag and one for the fridge. That’s right, keep Face Food in the fridge for an extra soothing spritz of hydration.
My own mom (pictured above) loves this water-based serum that's formulated with botanical retinol from moth bean extract. Just like traditional retinol, moth bean extract helps to speed cell renewal and boost collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It also contains vitamin C from moringa, which helps to brighten the complexion. And of course, vegan hyaluronic acid from senna. This ingredient is known to draw water to the skin to keep it hydrated. And when the skin is hydrated, it looks smooth and feels plump.
The gift of clean
If your mom likes things to be squeaky clean, look no further than our cleansers. Note: our cleansers won’t actually leave your skin squeaky because that’s a sign that you’ve stripped your skin of its beneficial, natural oils.
Face Foam is an unscented foaming cleanser that’s perfect for combination skin. White willow bark helps to soothe inflammation and gently exfoliate the skin while azelaic acid helps to fight blemishes and brighten the skin. Plus, apple cider vinegar helps to calm overactive sebaceous glands and balance the skin’s pH level. Together, these ingredients leave the skin feeling clean, smooth, supple and never dry.
Aloe Milk Cleanser is a soothing cream cleanser for sensitive skin. Formulated with black tea, niacinamide and aloe vera, this cleanser helps minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to soothe and moisturize the skin. This gentle, non-foaming formula breaks down makeup and impurities without stripping the skin.
Best of all, these two cleansers can be used together in a double cleanse routine.
The gift of relaxation
In addition to being a vegan hair, face and body wash, All Over Soap makes a delightful bubble bath. Formulated with aromatic essential oils and a plant-based surfactant, this is a bubble bath that energizes and uplifts without drying the skin.
Don’t just stop at bubbles, Intimacy Oil takes pampering to the next level. Formulated with squalane to hydrate and moisturize the skin, this body oil is the perfect bath addition to protect the skin from the drying effects of a long, hot soak. Add a few pumps to directly to the bath water and apply again after a bath (or shower) to keep the skin hydrated and protected!
