This week a personal body-contouring system, 3D shell manicures and lose weight with Yoga Ashram in JLT.
Those in need of a little pre-beach day nip and tuck no longer need to go to surgical extremes to achieve firmer, perkier skin. Slimming giant Fatgirl (www.basharacare.com) has just launched the Fatgirlslim Lean Machine, the first personal power tool body contouring device, which delivers effective vacuum-assisted massage action to the skin, when you use it with the Fatgirlslim firming cream. Surveys reveal that more than half of the users tested revealed their skin to be toned, firmer and smoother following the use of this beach buddy. The set can be yours for Dhs850.
Meanwhile, UK nail masters Ciate (04 339 9828) has the perfect mani to go with your newly sculpted beach bod, available in a DIY kit priced Dhs150 at Sephora. The new 3D Shell Manicure involves the application of real crushed shells in an assortment of umbrella-bright colours. Wear the look on one finger with shiny lacquer on the other nails from the equally pretty new Beach House Collection, or do the whole set for a night-time-ready dramatic effect.
Lastly, those looking to shift a couple of kilos before the end of summer should head to wellbeing aficionados Yoga Ashram (04 360 9028) in JLT. It is offering a 30-day Weight Management Programme, developed by trained yogis which includes weekly health coaching classes, info on making nutritional meals and a yoga exercise plan for your body type, as well as teaching you how to cope with stress.
