Gift Idea: Ways to pamper mom with the best in beauty

With Mother's Day just around the corner on Sunday, May 12th, now is the time to start thinking about what to give that special mom in your life. And what mother doesn't love a little pampering? Today, Grace Gold, beauty expert will offer ideas to pamper Mom with the best in beauty for Mother's Day, so she can get a little rest and relaxation on her dedicated day.

1. Indulge Mom With A New Fragrance
Mother's Day is the perfect occasion to get mom a new fragrance that she can enjoy all spring and summer long, but you don't want to get her a heavy floral that smells "old." Instead, go for a new fruity floral that lightens the scent with citrus notes, so mom can spritz a scent that smells fresh and modern, yet still very elegant:

Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue NYC Fragrance
-Fruity floral fragrance is inspired by the timeless luxury of the most famous street in the world, and epitomizes the stylish Manhattan woman
-Helps mom update her fragrance wardrobe! (Aren't we always trying to help keep mom updated? :)
-Available at Elizabeth Arden counters nationwide and
-Price: $48 (2.5 fl oz/75 ml)
2. Bring The Most Expensive Spa Service Home To Mom: Long-Lasting Hair Removal
If you ask women what beauty treatment they wish they could afford, you'd be shocked at how many say long-lasting hair removal! But going through the full set of sessions you need for results starts in the thousands for just a single body part. Now, you can get similar results at home for a fraction of the price. This could be exactly what mom has secretly wished for:

Remington i-LIGHT Pro
- A revolutionary, safe and easy-to-use intense pulsed light (IPL) device designed for the removal of unwanted body hair at-home below the neck for up to 6 months
- Uses similar IPL technology that dermatologists use, providing professional-quality results in the privacy and comfort of your own home

3. Give Mom Some Cutting Edge Ingredients to Help Her Look Her Best
What really makes us look older are not wrinkles, but pigmentation changes that leave spots and areas of blotchiness on our face. For glowing, refreshed skin that looks like you've just spent two weeks on vacation, try a brightening serum:

SkinMedica Lytera Skin Brightening Complex
-It has the best and most clinically-tested brightening ingredients available today: retinol, peptides and licorice root
-Clinically compared to 4% hydroquinone (the prescription gold-standard) in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots with comparable results

4. Treat Mom to More Youthful, Radiant Skin
If mom's concerned about sagging skin and signs of aging, creams alone can only do so much. Make the fine lines and wrinkles around her eyes disappear using an at-home tool with ultrasound technology, paired with microsphere-infused serums for immediate, long-term results without going under or having to pay for "the knife."  

- Mom can get more youthful-looking eyes and luscious, fuller-looking lips in as little as 1 week with the new JeNu Active Youth Skincare System  - the first and only professional quality at-home anti-aging system
 -Can be used on eyes and lips, two major areas of concern for women

5. Add A Candle Accent to Any Pampering Gift You Give Mom
