Mother’s Day. A signal that summer is on its way — that second Sunday in May when we celebrate mothers everywhere. But how do we define what a mother is? Of course, we’ve got our moms, but there are so many women out there that also nurture us throughout our lives.
Aunties, best friends, caregivers, our lady leaders, bosses and colleagues — all of these women, and then some, deserve loving recognition. And, not just on May 9, but every day of the year. So, in that spirit, we asked our friends at Shoppers Drug Mart to give us their list of the best drugstore products to help all those that care for us treat themselves to their own dose of self-care.
Here, three easy steps to self-care:
1. Sun Protectants: For Safe Fun in the Sun
Enjoy the warm weather safely — applying proper sun protectants is an essential first step to soaking up some vitamin D and the self-care that comes with it.
Try: Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 (to target tone, texture, dullness and blotchiness for healthier-looking skin), or Coppertone’s Glow Sunscreen Lotion with Shimmer SPF30 (a silky, lightweight formula that provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection).
2. Essential Supplements and Probiotics: For Full-Body Care
Being good to our bodies enables us to live life to the fullest — and nourishing ourselves (mind, body and soul) is the very essence of self-care.
Try: Life Brand Probiotic 6 Billion Active Cells (to support intestinal and gastrointestinal health) and Vega Protein & Greens: Vanilla (for added nutrition, antioxidants vitamin C and vitamin A).
3. Creams, Gels and Moisturizers: To Hydrate, Replenish and Give Skin That Healthy Glow
Prepare, repair and hydrate your skin to keep up with you and your outdoor adventures this spring. Try: Burt’s Bees Truly Glowing Replenishing Gel Cream (an intentional blend of proteins, humectants and oils to plump and hydrate) or L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Day Cream (for a daily dose of hydration and gentle exfoliation that helps rejuvenate skin tone to reveal a healthier rosy glow).
