Ramadan Summer Beauty Tips

The Alila Hotel & Resorts Group Director of Spas and Development, Steve Jeisman tells you how to take care of your skin this scorching summer

Keep your hair and skin protected and looking beautiful this Ramadan with these fabulous products that are must-have in your beauty closet.
Avocado & Coconut Hair Smoothie
For reviving sun damaged and dry hair, this intense antioxidant treatment is designed to detoxify, balance and hydrate the scalp. “Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp, but occasionally the trials of everyday life can easily put our hair and scalp out of balance. The Avocado & Coconut Hair Smoothie is an earthy, grounding, herbal concoction designed to help repair hair by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle ensuring a perfect youthful glow,” noted Steve.

Key Ingredients: Aloe, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Honey, Tamarind, Rosemary and Lavender essential oils
Why you should buy this product:

  • Avocado oil is beneficial in treating frequently chemically processed hair. It is high in nutrients such as amino acids and vitamins A, B, D and E, all of which help repair and support hair and scalp health.
  • Coconut oil frequently used throughout the Asia Pacific region for both food and medicinal purposes helps the healthy growth of hair and provides a shiny complexion.
  • Rosemary essential oil stimulates hair follicles and growth, in addition to slowing down or premature hair loss.

Price: Dhs56 (100ml)
Cucumber & Aloe Facial Cleanser
This facial cleanser is a delightfully-fresh, calming blend of lavender, lemon and cucumber seed oils in a soothing aloe vera juice base. “One of the most important parts of maintaining healthy skin is thorough cleansing. An effective cleanser should remove excess oil, perspiration, dirt, dust, pollution, make-up and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin but should be gentle enough so as not to strip the skin of its natural oils,” adds Steve.
Key Ingredients: Aloe, Wheat Germ, Chlorophyll, Lemon and Cucumber essential oils

Why you should buy this product:

  • Cucumber Seed oil is rich in both oleic and linoleic acids helping the skin prevent moisture loss and promoting elasticity.
  • Nutrient-filled Chlorophyll made from Alfalfa is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish tired and exposed skin accelerating the formation of granulation tissue.

Price: Dhs83 (150ml)
Indian Fig Dream Cream
This cream is an effective moisturiser with excellent repairing, antioxidant and anti-aging properties. The cream protects, balances, repairs and hydrates all skin types. “It is perfect for summer months as the cream leaves a dry matt finish. For an extra cool summer treat, keep it in the fridge,” noted Steve.

Key Ingredients: Aloe, Olive Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Shea Butter, Tamarind Extract, Vanilla, Lavender, Patchouli Oils

Why you should buy this product:

  • The star ingredient, Tamarind (aka Indian fig), is rich in organic acids and is an antiseptic, anti-allergy, and skin tightening; excellent anti-freckle and anti-aging remedy.
