Mama may not be able to head to the spa this Mother's Day, but set up a beauty salon at home and you can treat her frazzled nerves to a little bit of pampering.

Breakfast Mask

This Breakfast Mask uses ingredients you can find in the kitchen. It's easy to whip up, and it'll help you mattify oily skin.

1. Combine one egg yolk, one tablespoon of honey,
and one tablespoon of olive oil (yes, olive oil) with half a cup of oatmeal.
2. Stir well, then apply it to your face for 15-20 minutes.
3. Use a damp cotton pad to wipe off the oatmeal
and dispose of it. Rinse your face with lukewarm water,
pat dry and then moisturise.

Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

Here's the easiest deep conditioning hair mask to try — and all you need is one ingredient, one oil with good fats, like coconut, avocado or olive.

1. Pour 100ml of oil into a microwave-safe bowl. If your coconut oil is solid, use 3-4 tablespoons. Pop in the bowl in the microwave for 30s of until it becomes a liquid.
2. The oil shouldn't be too hot. You should be able to dip your fingers into it comfortably. Coat mum's hair from root to tip with it, a little at a time using your fingers. If mum already has an oily scalp, you can choose to apply from
mid-section to tip.
3. Clip her hair up, and cover her hair with a shower cap. Leave it on for at least 30 min before rinsing and shampooing. You can give her a shoulder massage while waiting!
