Undo the damage this summer


After flying out to Miami,Orlando and London in the span of two weeks I saw how difficult it is to maintain my hair,face and skin whilst traveling.The humidity,change of weather and oily foods cause break-outs,oily skin and dry hair.That's why it's important to make an effort as well as a few changes.

1- Bye Bye dry hair , Hello glossy & frizz free locks

I have always had long hair of curly/wavy nature that has never been easy to maintain.
The water and the humidity in the UAE cause hair to dry out and become brittle.
After pinning some hairstyles on a Pinterest board, I opted for a current summer trend : The LOB(long bob).
With a smile on my face (that's a first), I chopped it all off at Marquee Abu Dhabi.
Ella, the hairstylist knew exactly what I wanted - long layers and a shoulder length.
Marquee is a lovely salon located at the Eastern Mangroves. Retro Decor, state of the art technology and a great location : it's definitely one of the best.
My hair now feels a lot lighter and only takes 15 minutes to wash (as opposed to 45 minutes to an hour).
My top pick from the extensive menu of services is the variety of hair facials by Kevin Murphy (an Australian hair guru) which restore shine and heath to damaged, dry hair and reduce frizz. Do pop by and get one to revive dull hair after months' worth of sun exposure and chlorine at the pool.

2- The key to flawless and glowing skin

2 - Pantene 1 minute ampoules : 60 seconds in the shower you won't look back on.I've tried it and the effect is rather noticeable - shiny (but not greasy) , soft and manageable hair.

3 - Keep that shine under control with hardworking Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pore & Shine facial wash. AED 44.86. That’s all you need for a flawless-looking complexion this summer !
