MOJEH takes a beauty break in Paris at The Peninsula Spa
Dubai’s five-star spas are a tough act to follow. Pristine relaxation areas, expert therapists flown in from around the world and the latest in beauty technology – to name but a few highlights. Seeking comfort outside of the city can be a disapointing task at times. Que The Peninsula Paris’ Spa.
It’s situated downstairs at The Peninsula’s luxurious Parisian address in the heart of the city, and features ambient lighting melding a clean and comforting aesthetic with Asian practices. Entering the spa is relaxing in itself. Start with a refreshing tea and allow enough time to enjoy the sauna and steam areas, both arguably better than most Dubai hotspots.
MOJEH recommends the Biologique Recherche facials. Founded by the Allouche family in France and based on over 35 years of experience, Biologique Recherche treatments are tailored to each individual by conducting dermo-cosmetic analysis prior to every session. Expert therapists will map out skin and discuss concerns. A treatment route is then decided based on a clinical approach to beauty care using pure raw ingredients. Each formula has a high concentration of botanical, marine and biological extracts and is free from artificial fragrance and colourings – propelling them in to the new-age world of ‘clean’ beauty solutions.
The smoothing and restructuring facial is a good choice for anyone who’s either just stepped off a plane or out of the intense Dubai heat. Or in many cases, both. The one hour treatment is designed to calm and soothe sensitive and stressed skin. It perfectly integrates the Biologique Recherche Treatment Matrix into the skin, which deeply rehydrates, renews, protects and rebalances the complexion. Through intensive, sculpting movements and quick pulsing strokes, the rigorous Biologique Recherche application technique restores a balance deep within skin cells.
MOJEH Must: Allow enough time for atleast 30 minutes post-treatment time in the relaxation area. Infused water, healthy snacks and heated blankets. Divine.
