Tala's Favourite Summer Treatments

The UAE summer is a nightmare for beauty routines, thanks to the scorching sun that plays havoc with our skin and hair. Luckily, the city's salons are full of treatments dedicated to reversing the effects, and here are some of my recommendations...

HAIR SHINE BATH AT MARQUEE SALON
The worst thing about summer sun is that it turns coloured hair into a brassy golden shade. In between travels, I always make sure I've booked in with one of the girls at Marquee for their shine bath treatment which adds gloss and accentuates your colour. INFO: From Dhs280, 04 399 5336, marquee.ae

SLIMMING MASSAGE AT MACHKA
In addition to eating healthily and increasing my workouts, I love the slimming massages at Machka to keep in shape. They only take 25 minutes but be warned - they are quite intense as they need to help break down fat fast, and smooth out skin. INFO: Dhs300, 04 328 8800, machka.ae

GEL NAILS AT THE NAIL SPA
I only get gel manicures when I travel - which is quite regularly over the summer - but I definitely think The Nail Spa are the best. My manicures are always precise and without any chips, even after two weeks' wear. INFO: Dhs250, 600 544 0001, thenailspa.com

MANDELIC PEEL WITH REBECCA TRESTON
I've never had the best experiences with facials, so I tend to stick to light chemical peels as they don't require any downtime. The most gentle is the Mandelic Peel, and it's great for a summer glow. Plus, it kills any bacteria that could cause acne at the same time. INFO: Dhs600, 04 394 5422, euromedclinicdubai.com

LASHES AT THE DOLLHOUSE
I rarely wear make-up during the summer and when I do, I tend to stick to sunscreen, tinted moisturiser, lip balm and bronzer. As such, eyelash extensions can really make the biggest difference to your face. I love going to see Kyla at The Dollhouse for the Russian layering technique which gives you more volume than individual lashes. INFO: Dhs750, 04 347 3395, thedollhousedubai.com

HYDRATING HAIR TREATMENT AT SLAM
In addition to at-home hair masks, I like treating myself to in-salon hydrating treatments to give my hair a bit of an overhaul during the summer. I usually get them done right after my colour at Slam, as they offer the best Goldwell and Kevin Murphy products. My personal favourite is the KM hydrating treatment.
