Rebuild Delicate Summer Skin 

Treatments that are too harsh - using a lot of active ingredients or intense exfoliants - can irritate already compromised skin, causing further damage. Simplify your skincare routine this summer with a facial that is tailored to heal and repair.

Formulated with naturally soothing ingredients, including aloe vera, calendula, horse chestnut and lily flower, the Pevonia Oxy-Vital Soothing Facial Treatment at Tips & Toes is designed to calm inflammation and rehydrate sunburned skin. Ideal for those with sensitive skin, this gentle treatment promises an extra hydration boost to rebalance even the fussiest complexions.

Cooling and soothing, aloe vera makes this facial perfect for helping skin to recuperate after a day in the sun, topping up moisture without causing irritation. Collagen micro-fibres encourage regeneration and restore firmness and fullness to the facial contours.

Recommended as a regular treatment to help heal the skin, the Pevonia Oxy-Vital Soothing Facial Treatment is gentle enough to be enjoyed monthly or fortnightly, while still having a noticeable impact on the condition of your skin.

Science-Led Rejuvenation

A dedicated facial and skincare clinic, Dubai's Simply-Skin treats the cause and the side-effects of your complexion concrns. Considering the environmental factors that an contribute to dry and dehydrated skin in our desert region, the clinic's therapists recommend the DMK Enzyme Facial to rebalance dull and dry skin, using reverse osmosis to force oxygenated blood into the skin cells. A dual-action treatment, this facial nourishes the skin's surface while helping to firm and smooth wrinkles , making it ideal for mature skin. 

First, the skin is deeply cleansed to remove surface impurities, before a targeted serum containing vitamin C is applied. The active enzymes mash is then brushed onto the skin and allowed to work for 40 minutes,

This facial champions results over relaxation and you may feel some slight discomfort as the muscle tissue directly under the skin's surface contracts. These minor movements naturally tighten the complexion as capillaries and blood vessels expand dna dilate causing a temporary mottling of the skin. Once the enzyme mask is removed, a repairing serum, moisturiser and sun cream are applied. After the treatment, the skin is firmer and brighter.
