Ramadan Summer Beauty Tips
Cucumber and Aloe Facial Cleanser

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.
  • Aloe vera has been used for thousands of years as a healing and medicinal plant. Men particularly appreciate this product as a soothing and repairing after-shave moisturiser that helps to heal razor burn, small cuts and nicks.
