Home/ Blog / Bonding over skin rituals: How Mothers and Daughters are Connecting in this Modern Era
As generations pass by, the millennials have learnt how to grow comfortable in the arms of gadgets and devices more than in the arms of their parents. Of Course, girls learn how to be tough, how to play sports, how to swim but isn’t that more of a father-daughter bonding?
With changing times, certainly girls can’t bond with their mothers over how perfectly round the chapati is because let’s face it, we are far from wanting to become the perfect housewives now, aren’t we?
So, with times like these, what is better than sitting with your mum, away from the four walls of home, possibly at a parlour, getting pedicure done? Isn’t it wonderful to have your feet soaked in bubbles and all strong fragrances and just gossiping with your mom, without having to care about anything else in that precise moment?
Be it from making DIY face masks together or be it sitting in a room with dim lights and applying nail paints on each other’s hands, it simply doesn’t end there because the entire process of sitting through it involves deeper and meaningful conversations which one can’t enjoy on normal days.Be it from making DIY face masks together or be it sitting in a room with dim lights and applying nail paints on each other’s hands, it simply doesn’t end there because the entire process of sitting through it involves deeper and meaningful conversations which one can’t enjoy on normal days.
Not to forget, who do we go to for the first fashion advice? It is always our Mothers!! More so, let’s face it, our dads will never tell them how they look like and it is the daughters who come to the rescue by deciding which colour lipstick is going to look best with that beautiful black outfit our mom is going to wear for her date night.
From sitting and deciding about which lip shade to buy this time to throwing ourselves a little slumber party at home, our moms have always been by our side, applying one shade at a time. Who knows what we end up sharing, from beauty secrets to our personal ones, all it takes is a tub of hot water and some bath salts to sit and spill the beans about everything at once.
Being a mother and a homemaker, our mothers know what’s best for us and home remedies always find a way through making our skin glow and look even better. Be it turmeric mixed with milk or applying curd on our hair and skin, our mothers have always been the support we need for fighting our way ways with acne or dry/oily skin. And, same way how mothers know the best home remedies, I think our generation is equally familiar with the more advanced versions of skincare and beauty. From knowing which undereye cream to buy to investing 30 minutes of our day, dedicated to our skin, we always find a middle ground with our mum’s as to what is better.
With rapid times like this, where we don’t even have the time to breathe properly, it is always a good idea to plan small spa sessions with our mothers and allow ourselves to dive in the pool of stories unheard, secrets unshared and of course, our skins to be better and glowing.
