#StaySafeWithJumeirah: Jumeirah Al Qasr’s Talise Spa team share their home remedies to make sure the daily fast does not take a toll on your natural radiance

#WhatMattersMost during Ramadan is families being together creating special moments every day. While enjoying these precious moments, the team at Jumeirah Al Qasr’s award-winning Talise Spa, renowned for its indulgent and relaxing experiences, shares some easy self-care tips to give your skin a little pampering as you adapt to a new routine.

More than ever, skin, which is our body’s largest organ, requires daily attention to ensure that it is not affected by fasting. As the weather is becoming warmer in Dubai and transitioning from heat to air conditioning, without hydration, will dry out the skin, leaving it looking dull and lacklustre.Face masks are great for the skin and have many benefits depending on the ingredients used.

Homemade masks are easy to make and a fantastic way to ensure you get the best ingredients onto your skin. The below homemade masks will not only exfoliate your skin but help unclog pores, brighten the face and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is important to exfoliate the skin before applying a mask as this helps to remove dead skin cells, increase absorption of ingredients and smooth the skin’s surface.

 

Papaya and Turmeric Mask

Ingredients:

  • Half cup of fresh papaya fruit
  • One teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Cucumber slices

Method:
1. Mix the ingredients into a paste and apply onto a cleansed, dry face
2. Add cucumber slices over the eyes to help reduce puffiness and leave the mask on your face for 15 minutes
3. Gently remove the mask using warm water

NOTE: This mask can be used twice a week to help with clearing pigmentation, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and leave the skin feeling smooth and clear.

 

Honey and Yoghurt Mask

Ingredients:

  • One teaspoon of honey
  • One tablespoon of yoghurt
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

Method:
1. Mix the ingredients into a paste and apply onto a cleansed, dry face
2. Leave on your skin for 7-10 minutes.
3. Add slices of cucumber over the eyes while you allow the mask to do its work on the skin
4. Remove the mask using warm water and pat the skin dry

NOTE: This mask can be applied two or three times a week to help exfoliate, hydrate, and increase the amount of oxygen rich blood in the skin.

In addition to applying face masks, drinking Ginger Tea after Iftar has an abundance of health benefits including that it helps to fight respiratory problems, improve blood circulation and strengthen the immune system. Ginger Tea can be enjoyed hot or cold, depending on your preference, and tastes amazing either way.

 

Talise Spa Signature Ginger Tea

Ingredients:

  • 250g freshly peeled, cut ginger
  • Ten pieces of cardamom
  • One-litre water
  • Half squeezed lemon or half slice of lemon
  • Honey (optional)
