Living in the hot and humid weather of the Gulf, it is inevitable the skin can feel dry, dehydrated and rough.  Our faces are most exposed to the sun and air conditioning therefore the skin is more prone to damage. Along with a healthy diet, plenty of water and a good night’s sleep to keep the skin looking and feeling fresh, it is also worth considering a rejuvenating Facial to help replenish the skin, revive its natural glow and to reveal healthy-looking skin with a clear complexion.

Regular Facial

The simple process, which can also be done at home, consists of cleansing the face with a good quality face cleanser, light steam, followed by a scrub exfoliation and applying a face mask suitable for the skin type. Once the mask has dried, rinse with warm water and apply a good quality moisturizer. These simple facials are recommended twice a month to help liven up the skin.

Acne Reduction Facial

Suitable for people with oily skin and for those suffering from acne problems, this treatment involves deep cleansing, steaming and exfoliating the clogged pores that cause acne. After the exfoliation process, various types of masks are applied to lessen the severity of the acne. Acne reduction facials done regularly can help reduce the oiliness of the skin and reduces signs of acne over time and is suitable for both teenagers and adults.

Antioxidant facial

Helping fight the daily damage caused to the skin by pollutants in the air, the antioxidant facial evens out skin tone and clears complexion to illuminate the skin. The facial uses creams rich in Vitamin A, C and E and beta-carotene that deep cleanse the pores to remove all impurities.

Fruit Facial

Natural fruit facials help reduce dark spots and fine lines as they contain all the enzymes and antioxidants found in fresh fruits. Fruit facials using fruits with high Vitamin C, such as oranges and papaya, leave the skin looking radiant and can also be carried out at home using fruit pulp.

Gold Facial

Using creams containing 24-carat gold this facial is perfect as a rejuvenating treatment. Targeting lymphatic draining, the facial helps remove toxins and waste and aids in the acceleration of regeneration of new cells. During the treatment, masks containing gold are also applied. Gold facials help restore the softness, smoothness, elasticity, resilience, and radiance of the skin to give the face a youthful and fresh look.

Paraffin Facial

Favoured by many celebrities, the facial is beneficial for dull and dehydrated skin. Warm wax is applied to the face over a gauge mask. As the wax cools slowly, it allows for the pores to tighten while simultaneously cleansing and moisturising. The treatment hydrates and clears up the skin.
