Our Skincare Traditions Handed Down
Mother’s Day always gives us good reason to pause and honour our mothers and all that they have done for us. It is also a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the various traditions handed down from generation to generation. Not to mention, all the ways we’ve proudly trusted and modelled our mothers in our lives, be it our lifestyle choices, how we approach beauty and skin health, and how we impact those around us in inspiring ways.
From an early age, our mothers have served as a mirror for how we see the world, the knowledge they imparted and the role they played as nurturers in our lives. It is also hard not to notice the level of sacrifice and the multi-faceted demands that come with motherhood; not to mention the beautiful way women now, more than ever, are seeking out balance and mindful choices so that they can nurture others and yet, still stay true to themselves. Here at Romilly Wilde we happily embrace this day to herald women around the world for all that they do, not to mention the traditions that we cherish and will hand down to our own children.
When it comes to skin health, whether we are conscious of it or not, there are certain habits, rituals or favourite products that were planted as seeds by our mothers. Most women carry around some gem of wisdom handed down that they will inherently trust over any site, expert or beauty blogger out there. Maybe it was watching your mum religiously take off her make-up every night with her favourite face oil, or a signature scent that is forever imprinted upon our memories; or even a diligent habit that she lived by to ensure a healthy skin and a more conscious life. Whatever it may be, something our mothers did left a mark, and it is easy to feel our mother’s presence when we find ourselves doing the exact same thing. Not to mention, how our mother ages is often a good indicator of how we ourselves will face the changes of time.
So here at Romilly Wilde, we honour mothers everywhere and proudly share the tips handed down from our mothers to everyone in the RW community.
