Lusso Tan supports Down Syndrome Ireland

Irish tan brand, Lusso Tan, is working with Down Syndrome Ireland to encourage mums to take a break this coming Mother's Day (22nd March).

The brand, founded by working parents Leah White, Sarah White and Lynsey Bennett, has launched a limited edition self-tan removing bath bomb, and is donating a percentage of proceeds to the Down Syndrome Ireland charity.

With the #Take15Minutes campaign, Lusso Tan aim to highlight the benefits to mums of taking a short amount of time out of their busy schedules for themselves, making a significant difference to their state of mind.

Lynsey Bennett, co-founder of Lusso Tan, comments:

“We believe it is so important for mothers to allocate ‘me-time' into their routine and leave behind the chaos of juggling motherhood with day to day life - even just for 15 minutes. Many mums that we have spoken to recently have told us they can't remember the last time they even had a bath! This Mother's Day, we want Mum's to take control of their own self-care by taking just 15 minutes to enjoy the many benefits of a calming and relaxing bath and at the same time benefit a charity that is so close to many people in Ireland.”

Mary Doherty, former president of Down Syndrome Ireland and mum of Aaron, aged 11, adds:

“We are delighted to be a part of this important initiative. As busy mums and parents of children with disabilities, we often get so caught up fulfilling our everyday roles that we forget we need to take care of ourselves too. By reminding mums to take just 15 minutes of self-care, Lusso Tan are promoting and encouraging a more balanced life - which will not only have benefits for mental health, but will allow us to be refreshed and energised to take on the ever-changing demands of our busy lives - whatever the task may be! Down Syndrome Ireland is an organisation that I hold close to my heart, so I am thrilled that funds raised from this initiative will go on to support so many others beginning their journey.”

Lusso Tan's Summer Meadow Bath Bomb is the brand's second self-tan removing bath bomb to launch. Funds raised from the sale of the product will go towards developing a booklet for new parents of babies with Down Syndrome, distributed to maternity units around the country.
