Carrying a baby is stressful—both mentally and physically. Those nine months may have moms-to- be wanting to check out of reality and into a spa. Mama Mio makes pampering and relaxation possible with their exclusive skin salvation program: Mama Mio Skincare’s Mama’s Touch. Offered at over 300 spas worldwide, the Mama’s Touch includes four different treatments: The Yummy Tummy, Lighten Up, Mellow Mama and 4th Trimester Healing Hour. Out of the four, SALON TODAY investigated the Yummy Tummy service, which helps replenish the hydration, elasticity and omegas that the baby borrows when developing.
