As you’ve seen through my social media, I was in Amsterdam (again) but this time with Rituals. I’ve been a big fan of their products since the day they had launched in the Netherlands (around the year 2000). When I got invited to visit Amsterdam, which is where the brand was born, I was super excited! I got to learn a lot about their products and collections. Their sunscreen range “Ritual of Karma” was a collection that I wasn’t very familiar with yet.
Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims, we fast from sunrise to sunset. It’s a time for spiritual reflection, self improvement, increased devotion and worship. Keeping your skin healthy is as important as having a healthy diet during the holy month. One of the purposes of Ramadan is to detox your body and release all toxins from within. These tips will help you to detoxify your skin and to maintain a healthy & happy skin this month.
Last month I was invited to Amsterdam by Rituals Cosmetics which is a brand that I’ve been using since I was a teenager. When I found out last year that they were finally launching in Dubai I literally screamed of excitement. I had the privilege of learning more about the brand, experience the brand from the core and its birth place which is: Amsterdam. Along with learning more about their products, we did some cool activities too.
If there’s a treatment that I absolutely love, it’s facials. I like exploring new treatments and I recently tried out the Hydrafacial here in Dubai at the Novaclinic. Anything that improves the health of my skin, I want! There are many benefits to the hydrafacial but most importantly, it’s a great instant hydration boost & it clears out the skin within minutes.
The other day I got to attend the launch event of dr. Murad skincare products in Dubai. I’ve heard and read many great things about the brand so I’m excited for the launch. The breakfast event was inspired by the healthy vegan life since it’s an L.A. based brand. The food was amazing! Anyone that knows me well, knows that I’m addicted to acai bowls. I’ve never had green acai bowl before but it was really good.
It’s my second time to visit this branch of Talise spa, everytime I’m there it reminds me of Marrakech but with the tropical elements of Asia. The spa area is really beautiful and on sunny days you’ll be able to enjoy the pool as well. Talise Spa has so many different treatments but the treatments I had done were the “Full Body Scrub” of 30 minutes and the “Margys Age Embrace Facial” of 60 minutes.
I think it’s been no secret that I love Institut Esthederm products. Their products are very effective and very straight forward. Every time I try a new product from the brand, I can see a difference in my skin either immediately or within 10 days which is super fast and just proves how effective it is. I’ve been using their products for a couple of years now and recently I got to sit down with Aurelia Duchatelle who is their international skin care expert. She analyzed my skin and she gave me so many helpful tips and tricks that I had to share with you guys. One of the products she talked about was the “Cellular Water Spray” and she shared some tips on how to use the spray in several different ways.
How you’re using make-up primers is just as essential as your skincare routine. Every primer has a different purpose , some can be used all over the face and others should be used on targeted areas only. I personally have oily skin so I make sure to use an oil-free primer for my T-zone. I also have open pores on my cheek area, so I use a primer that helps to blur out the open pores and textured skin. I could go on and on about different primers and how to use them so I’ve created a short video that explains everything.
I recently got the chance to experience a few treatments at the Talise spa in Madinat Jumeirah. I was so stressed out from work and constantly fixated on my emails; I really needed a day to recharge again so the Talise spa seemed like the perfect place.
It’s a supplement made from a root vegetable that grows on the Andes mountains in Peru: Maca powder. I first found out about Maca powder about 4 years ago through one of my favorite authors: John Grey. I was just scrolling through his website and was watching his videos. Then, I watched a video about testosterones and estrogens and how they exactly work. As he was explaining about estrogens, he mentioned Maca powder and pointed out the importance & benefits of this supplement for women and that we should be taking this daily.
