If there’s one thing we’d change about the city’s water and weather, it’s the effect it has on our skin. If we forget to moisturise for just one day, our legs start to get scaly, while our elbows and heels become almost shell-like. So when we heard that beloved skincare line human + kind was launching a new all-in-one hand, elbow and foot cream, we practically wept with joy. Having commandeered a sample, we thoroughly recommend picking up a tube, soon to be available for Dhs38 at stores such as Boots and Milk & Honey.
You can look after your skin even better this beach season as a new range of toxic-free sun protection from Supergoop! becomes available in the region for the first time.

You’ll soon be able to find them in retailers across the city, including Sephora.
Also new to Dubai is Magnesia water, which, as the name suggests, boasts a rich natural magnesium content, as well as sodium.

It’s available at Al Maya, Geant and Lulu. That’s all for this week – until next time, namaste.
