A new survey has revealed that the average woman spends 136 days in front of the mirror getting ready over her lifetime. By contrast, men spend just 45 days grooming themselves. They needed a special study to tell us that? Duh!
"I don't mind ageing a bit. I love my grey hair. I love the fact that my face has more of an edge and more character than it did when I was in my 20s or 30s. No Botox for me."
George Clooney clearly isn't ready to hit the Just For Men bottle quite yet!
Treatment of the week
What? Ramadan 'Jewels of Arabia', Diamond Clarity experience.
Where? Amara Spa, Park Hyatt Dubai.
How much? Dhs680
How long? 105 minutes.
The treatment: This is the perfect pre or post travel treatment for all of us. Inhalations of specially selected essential oils stimulate your senses, while you are dry body brushed as a prelude to an aroma-pressure back massage. A recharging body mask rich in minerals and plant essences is applied all over, while you lie back and enjoy a relaxing acupressure foot and scalp massage with frankincense, and a soothing eye massage with chilled lava stones. Finally, shower off the body mask under an outdoor rain shower in your own private garden for a perfect finish.
The result: The deep- tissue massage leaves perpetually knotted backs much looser, and skin feels dreamily soft. Bliss!
