Hair loss is back in the headlines in the UAE, as men and women alike lament their thinning locks. Al Das Medical Clinic (04 452 9998), a new centre on the Palm Jumeirah, is offering vitamin D testing to see if a lack of nutrients could be the reason for your loss. Throughout May, it will be offering the test for Dhs600 instead of Dhs850, so you can find out for certain.
It seems wedding fever has hit the city’s health and beauty providers. Nutrition company Health Factory has just launched The Bliss Programme, a meal service designed for brides and grooms looking to slim down for the big day, while The Nail Spa has unveiled a variety of new packages focusing on brides-to-be, bridal showers, mums-to-be and baby showers for Dubai’s pampered devotees.
Also new on the meal-delivery circuit is the FuelUp package, just launched by Dubai’s Right Bite nutrition catering service. The programme is designed for athletes and sports enthusiasts, supporting their athletic lifestyles with a balanced intake of carbohydrates and proteins. Finally, Lotus Wellness Spa in Dubai Marina (open to both men and women) has undergone a revamp, and is now under the management of Spadunya Colour Experience. Special offers in May include a Lotus Wellness Body wrap for Dhs180 instead of Dhs300. For an additional Dhs180, guests can add a 60 minute massage to the experience, also normally Dhs300 (04 440 2805). De-stressing at a steal. Until next week, namaste.
