There are so many places in Dubai to head to if you’re after a skin-brightening or pore-declogging facial, but when it comes to organisations that utilise natural beauty products throughout the process, options are limited.
There are so many things to think about when it comes to sourcing our beauty products nowadays, and for more and more of us, that now focuses around finding gentle yet effective products that are free of harsh chemicals.
And for those of us who can’t get by without a regular or occasional facial to give our skin the extra treat it deserves, finding spas or salons that use natural and organic ingredients can be tricky.
But luckily, Queens Beauty Lounge – with locations along Dubai Marina and in JLT – does just this. As well as being able to pop in for a long-lasting manicure and pedicure or a fresh new hairstyle, the beauty salon also offers massages and facials.
With an ethos for natural beauty, it offers a range of treatments using skincare products from brands such as Shirley Conlon Organics and YonKa. The first is a Dubai-born line that is both chemical and cruelty-free. The second is a French skincare brand born in 1954 that creates skincare and body care products using natural resources.
