Jan. 6 – After the excesses of the Holiday season, a January detox seems like an inspired idea, and one that many people embrace. Detox programs are aimed at stimulating the body to purge itself. Post detox, organs are clean, and free to function as they should and the body is able to absorb nutrients better, including Vitamin C. By flushing the toxins out from your body, detoxification leaves you feeling more energetic and lively; while hair gets shinier, stronger and feels softer to the touch and your complexion becomes more radiant and youthful.
Of course, to maximise the benefits of a detox, there is a host of treatments that can help but experts believe that the pick of these is the traditional Moroccan hammam. The healing properties, warmth and steam of a traditional hammam make it incredibly beneficial for both the mind and body. The hammam’s hot steam opens the skins pores releasing toxins, bacteria and other impurities making it ready for the deep exfoliation.
Unique to the hammam is the application of soap made from black olives, scented with eucalyptus and which is high in vitamin E. It was first introduced in the nineteenth century as a dermatological product later being recognised as an everyday beauty must have and is now considered the hero product of the ritual. It aids in softening and nourishing the skin and prepares it for the exfoliation with the kessa glove.
In the UAE, we are lucky to have a range of fantastic spas that offer unrivalled hammams and the very best of these are listed on Vaniday. Remember when you detox, you feel good, and when you feel good, good things happen so why not kickstart your detox by booking a hammam today? The result could literally be life-changing.
