FY Review: Microdermabrasion at Eternal Clinic, Dubai

19 Apr

Summers are harsh on the skin- especially the dry and intense Dubai heat so this is the perfect time to prep your skin for the onslaught of summer. I do it with a deep exfoliation technique, microderambraision, a procedure that buffs away the surface layer of skin and dead cells.

What is Microdermabraision?

I’ve had the treatment done a couple of times before, but two weeks ago was my first microdermabrasion session at Eternal Clinic, Jumeirah Beach Road. The effects of microdermabrasion are never instantaneous but are fully realized within a period of two weeks or more- it takes that much time for skin to regenerate and even out the tone.  So is it worth the wait?

Well for starters, I loved the hospitality at Eternal Clinic- the staff was very warm and friendly and always eager to answer any questions. I was impressed by the sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment housed in the treatment rooms. I opted for the 30 minute mini microdermabrasion treatment as I was pressed for time but even the mini session was very effective.

After the session, I was handed a set of specific instructions for post-treatment skincare which included extra hydration with the use of a good moisturizer, a strong sunblock and no deep cleansing or exfoliation for a few days. Gradually, I’ve started to see the effects- soft texture, even toned skin and a visibly improved complexion! I’d say its completely worth the wait, and that too, without undertaking the risk of treatments such as chemical peels.

But since microdermabrasion is such an advanced procedure, it should be done at a trustworthy and reputed salon or clinic- I’d highly recommend Eternal Clinic for its trained staff, great quality of products for facials (post treatment) and a very professional beauty practice.

Summer 2014 with United Colors of Benetton

16 Apr

The heat is on! It’s that time of the year, when Dubai’s dreaded desert summer comes calling. For me, it means lots of watermelons, some industrial strength sunblock and plenty of whites in my closet.

For Benetton’s styling project then, I chose a simple, off-white top and beige self-printed trousers. Perfect for a day at work, I think this outfit can be teamed with a pair of black heels, chunky necklace and bold red lips. Work-wear chic for the summer!

The second look that I put together is a very casual and laidback weekend outfit. I picked up this cute ‘Hair stylist wanted’ logo T Shirt with the adorable Peanuts gang on it. I think it’d go great with a pair of denim shorts and sneakers.

I’m loving the new Benetton Spring Summer ’14 Collection and can’t wait to bag my summer haul from the store at Mall of The Emirates, Dubai.

The Entertainer Body 2014-2015 has just launched in Dubai. I personally love the concept and have been enjoying the buy-one-get-one free vouchers for two years in a row now.  While the restaurant and entertainment books are already a big hit, The Entertainer’s Body edition is bound to be twice as nice- I’m talking spa treats, salon services for (for women and men) and fitness vouchers!

The best part though? Unlike the food and entertainment vouchers, which have to be redeemed on the spot for the paid + free counterparts, The Entertainer Body offers the chance to redeem the free voucher at another time yourself! That means, after paying for one spa treatment, I can redeem the corresponding free voucher at another time myself- why share the benefits when you can have it ALL? I think it’s a brilliant upgrade!
