What You’ll Need for the Best DIY Mother-Daughter Spa Day

Admit it… since the pandemic started, we’ve all fantasized about fleeing our homes. Between having to balance work via Zoom, being around our spouses 24/7, and becoming educators overnight—many of us really need to get away. But let’s reframe for a moment: Being stuck at home isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Time is actually on our side in terms of spending quality time with our kids. Dr. Phil says, “the most powerful role model in a child’s life is the same-sex parent.” So, let’s make the most of a rare opportunity by spending a fun and relaxing day for mothers and daughters to rejuvenate and reconnect. We’ve got everything you’ll need for the best DIY mother-daughter spa day at home.

Creating Memories

The best part about a mother-daughter spa day is the chance to spend time together. So, put away the cell phones, turn off the TV, and spend time enjoying each other’s company. Whether your daughter is 6, 16, or 26, enjoying a spa day together is an experience that neither of you will soon forget.

Nailed It

No mother-daughter spa day would be complete without a mani-pedi. In the case of Ella + Mila Elite Nail Polish, its seven-free formula means the exclusion of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), and xylene. They can also take credit for being vegan and cruelty-free.
