Life begins at 40
After the age of 40, women start experiencing a lot of physical and psychological changes. A few changes that are common to all are hot flushes, mood swings and feelings of loneliness. These changes are mainly due to the decreasing levels of oestrogen, the hormone produced by ovaries. Therefore, most experts believe that a woman should lay more emphasis on her personal hygiene and wellness during this period of her life. From regular facials to keep the skin tight, to massages that ease tensed muscles, hitting the spa often is very essential.
Here are some treatments you can gift your mothers.
One of the biggest problems experienced due to ageing skin is dryness. This is faced even by women who have excessively oily skin during their early years. It is necessary to tackle dry skin and give it ample nourishment to keep signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines at bay. The best way to do so is with the help of hydrating skin treatments. The Ayurvedic treatment, Abhyanga, or the Swedish deep tissue massage, help to nourish the skin's superficial level. The movements used during these massages also help relax the body and make the skin glow. Another moisturising treatment you can opt for is a hydrating facial. Facials done using essential oils, botanical extracts and nourishing ingredients such as milk, honey, banana and seaweed battle dryness, fight signs of ageing and tighten sagging skin.
Skin brightening and polishing treatments
Other problems faced by ageing skin include pigmentation, excessive flaking and dullness. A rejuvenating facial that tackles these issues can be a great gift for your mother. Skin brightening and polishing facials are rich in ingredients such as papaya, lemon, rice flour, sea algae and antioxidants. These help to soften the skin and visibly improve its natural radiance, appearance and texture. The same can be said for skin polishing treatments that help get rid of the dead skin and improve tonicity (firmness).
Firming eye treatment
An eye treatment is perfect to tackle the very first sign of ageing, which appears around the eyes. It will also be a perfect treat for your mother, especially if she is an avid television watcher. It helps battle eye strain, computer headaches and stress. Eye treatments also firm up the thin skin around the eyes and relax tensed muscles. Most treatments use ingredients such as seaweed extracts, green tea and vitamin C, which help in reducing the appearance of fine lines and provide protection against environmental damage. They also help tackle under-eye circles and puffy eyes.
Another complaint in ageing women is lack of sleep or insomnia. A sure shot way to ensure that your mother sleeps like a baby is treating her to a Shirodhara treatment. This head massage involves the application of a medicated oil that soothes tense muscles, reduces stress and eases sleep-related woes. The warm medicated oil, which continuously falls on the forehead during this treatment, triggers the third-eye chakra and releases the happy hormone known as serotonin. This instantly perks one up and makes you feel light and happy.
Out of all spa treatments, nothing relaxes the entire body in a jiffy like foot reflexology. If done well, it brings about a deep state of relaxation that is a must for all busy mummies. Foot reflexology is apt for women who don't have time to indulge in long treatments. This treatment involves stroking of the feet and the application of certain hand and finger techniques that improve blood flow to vital organs. This helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to various organs and nourishes body tissues, too. Since the treatment is deeply relaxing, it helps battle mood swings to a large extent
