A New Year, A New You.
Even though we are already at February, I just got back from my trip to New York & London (where I got ill twice) and realized I needed a little break to re-energize and revitalize so here is a little guide on some great treatments to try around town…
-A Detox Massage at The Nail Spa, Dubai.
The Nail Spa has always been one of my favorite nail salons in Dubai, but as their rooms are hidden behind – I never really knew about all the other facial/body treatments they offered. I recently popped by to the salon to try out their Detox massage.
Listed down as the Detox massage, The massage was a low pressure 60 minute full body massage. If you’re one that loves a full on high pressure massage on the muscles, this is not for you but if you’re looking for a relaxing tension breaker, do check it out.
-Kerastase treatment at Pastels Salon, Dubai
I recently visited Pastels Salon for the first time. I always spot the salon when I’m on Al Wasl road, but never got the chance to check it out. As a Jumeirah gal, the first thing that won my heart was was the location. Even though I ran a bit late, the staff were super sweet and accommodating. I came in for a Kerastase treatment followed by a blowdry (a huge fan of Kerastase products, so I was excited to try out a treatment of theirs. After meeting the owner of the salon, I received a mini consultation where she recommended a treatment that was going to moisturize as well as revive my hair color.
Now I must say, if you were to get any treatment done, it would have to be Pastels Salon, they have the BEST shower basins where they turn into flat beds, and are from Singapore. I could have passed out on the bed – as good as a massage. Not only was I super relaxed from the beds, I left with soft and bouncy hair for New Years Eve!
-The Sisters Massage at Sisters beauty lounge, Dubai
The Sisters beauty lounge, Dubai Mall branch is home to great body treatments. I recently tried their signature massage, which is a Swedish massage base using a light almond oil (my favorite!). A great full body massage, and I ended up getting all my muscles stretched out & felt revived enough to start the new year!
-Loreal treatment at Hairworks, Beach Road in Dubai
I recently popped over to try out Hairworks on beach road for their best conditioning treatment (according to head stylist Lulu!) The treatment I experienced was the Loreal Cataplasme – which is the mixing of creams with fig and Ginseng extracts (yum.). The two-step treatment transforms the texture of the hair, and deep conditions. It lasts for ten washes and nourishes the hair. I had my hair washed before adding the treatment to my hair followed by scalp massages (my favorite…). After around half an hour of the treatment in the hair, it was washed through and finished it off with a blowdry. My hair not only felt super bouncy and silky… it smelt so good.
-Detox Delight cleanse
Cleansing your insides and detoxing is just as important. Personally, I am not the biggest juice cleanse fan (I need solids.. and coffee) but if you’re brave enough, Detox Delight is a great company that delivers juices with all the right nutrients . You have the choice of doing it for several days or more, and the choice of going with a juice cleanse or a soup & juice one instead. I recently tried the detox for a day – the juices are fab. My favorite would have to be the Lemonade.
