Director of Biolite Skin Clinic ‘Got some leftover muesli? Crush into a coarse powder and mix with some creamy yogurt. Add half a teaspoon of honey and smear it on your body, then get scrubbing to nourish and exfoliate.’
‘For total sun protection, apply an even layer of nappy rash cream all over your face. Your skin will be as smooth and clear as a baby’s bottom.’

Founder of Rebecca Treston Aesthetics ‘It may seem obvious, but it’s vital to drink at least two litres of water every day. The body is made up of 90 per cent water, so keeping your water intake high will have a direct impact on the condition of your skin and clarity of your complexion.’
‘Embrace your natural beauty. Tinted moisturisers cover flaws, but feel less “cakey”. If you don’t think your complexion is able to carry off the natural look, treat it to a professional peel for instant radiance.’ Rebecca Treston Aesthetics, Euromed Clinic, Jumeirah Beach Road (04 394 5422).
MAC’s senior make-up artist for the Middle East and India ‘Make sure skin is hydrated constantly. Try MAC Fix+ (Dhs81), which we use backstage – it’s a spray with cucumber, chamomile and green tea. You can carry it in your bag and spray it on any time, and you’ll feel the skin plump up when you do.’
‘Instead of lipstick, use lip liner over your whole lip. It will last all day and won’t come off, even if you’re out in the sun.’
‘Apply mascara on the bottom side of your top lashes first and give it 30 seconds to dry. This will cause them to naturally curl upwards. Then shimmy the brush carefully against your lower lashes for light coverage.’ MAC, various locations, including The Dubai Mall (04 339 9681).
CEO of NStyle ‘Smother hands and feet with Vaseline and wear cotton mittens and socks overnight or for a few hours for heavenly nourished skin.’
‘Use a foot file on the feet on a weekly basis in the bath or shower. This will keep your feet smooth, and will help to ensure you don’t get a build-up of dead skin.’ NStyle, various locations, including Mall of the Emirates (04 341 3300).
