Discover how to look and feel your best
Let’s look at simple ways to look good and feel good, from bathing rituals to glowing skin.
LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD
Feeling good in your clothes as you exercise is very important! Founded in Dubai, NO-VA ATHLEISURE is an athletic leisure brand that is focused on bringing comfortable active apparel that is unique and innovative to women and men in the region. Why not treat yourself to an activewear ensemble from this local brand? Their new women’s collection embodies more than just fashionable attire; it encapsulates style, comfort and empowerment, all harmoniously woven into each set.

GET YOUR GLOW ON
Give yourself the gift of great skin with a luxe moisturising cream from Watson’s star brand, Nimya. Nimya’s ‘Where It All Starts Moisturising Cream’ (AED 144) creates a perfect canvas for luminous skin, but also helps prime your face for those heavier makeup days. Apply the cream before your foundation for a long-lasting, soft base throughout the day. Alternatively, wear it alone for a gorgeous, radiant and natural base. If you feel like it, consider adding some drops of Nimya’s ‘Licence To Glow Serum’ to dial up your skin’s radiance.
Both are available to purchase in stores and online
KEEP COOL WITH LUSH
Taking a bath is known to be a quick and easy way to feel refreshed, reduce stress, wake you up and even keep your skin and hair looking their best. To keep your cool both in and out of the bath, LUSH offers anti-humidity, cooling solutions to help turn your self-care routine up a notch. Here are my recommendations from LUSH to help you chill out and unwind this month.

Ippuku Ryo Cooling Mini Bath Bombs
This Ippuku small bath bomb set has been crafted alongside Lush’s creative team in Japan, for whom bathing is an art form. Each 45g bath bomb (AED 75) uses ingredients found in traditional remedies. Ippuku Ryo is a trio of refreshing, nutrient-dense seaweed bath bombs, for a calming self-care session inspired by the Japanese art of restorative bathing.
