We all know the importance of a daily cleanse, tone and moisturise, but once in a while your skin deserves an at-home treat.
Turn your bathroom into your very own spa with our guide to the best beauty products to buy from Mall of the Emirates and learn the essentials tricks to ensuring your complexion is in tip top condition.
After removing all of your make-up thoroughly, jump in a hot bath filled with Epsom salt (great for detoxifying) and add a few drops of nourishing skin oil. We love using kitchen-cupboard staples such as olive oil or coconut oil – both of which can be easily sourced at the supermarkets in Dubai.
Next, get to work massaging in a cleansing milk or gel – the steam from the hot water will help open up your pores to ensure you get a really thorough wash. Finish with a splash of cold water to close your pores.
Once your skin squeaky clean, it’s onto exfoliation. While many of us use a scrub, we advise trying an acid exfoliant which is much more gentle and effective way to remove dead skin. Grainy scrubs tend to rip the delicate epidermis of the skin and can spread bacteria resulting in blemishes. Rodial’s Exfoliating Pads are one of are favourites and come soaked with fruit acid to help renew your skin.
With your face all prepped it’s onto a mask. Pick a formula suited to your skin’s need, be it oily, dry or congested. Bobbi Brown’s Radiance Boost is a brilliant multitasking mask to purify, balance and nourish the skin. Allow the product to dry for at least ten minutes before wiping off with a warm, wet cloth.
If you only invest in one area of your skincare regime, let it be serum. Thin in texture and highly concentrated, serums should be applied on clean skin before your moisturiser. These potent liquids come in an array of formulas for different skin types. If anti-ageing is your main concern, give Clinique’s Smart Custom Repair Serum a go.
Allow your serum to skin in for a few minutes before followed by a rich night cream and a pea-sized amount of eye cream.
