Messy hair, wonky beard and unkempt nails are no longer acceptable traits for a man to have. We are expected to be as trimmed, scented and groomed as our female counterparts. If not more so.
In all honesty though, and let’s keep it between us, we do enjoy it. There are few things in life as relaxing as a full pamper session in a reputable salon and The Loft Fifth Avenue is certainly that. A salon that does everything from full body massages, manicures, pedicures, beard trims, haircuts and the new, rather impressive energizing facial.
All good facials have 3 clear components. The deep cleanse, the amazing product applications and that all-important relaxation bit.
Firstly the cleansing and extraction. Yes it can be as painful as it sounds, but it is worth it. A deep clean extraction process using steam that manually removes clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads without digging into the skin or damaging the skin layers. Recommended for those troublesome nose and chin areas. For the energizing facial a dual-brush foam cleansing kicks off the procedure in what feels like a Samurai precision movement to relax and cleanse the skin, closely followed by the extraction.
Secondly, comes the science part. Various lotions and potions are applied to the skin for The Loft’s energising facial. They exclusively use Babor products known for their natural active ingredients and “Made in Germany” heritage. Babor revitalising oxygen fluid and Babor men anti-wrinkle face and eye energiser are the standout products that you can truly see the results with. Thanks partly to the taurec, a high-performance active-complex, developed specially by Babor
Last but by no means least, is the relaxation massage. A face and head massage is given throughout the procedure when applying the products but the last 10 minutes really do allow you to drift off into your own world and completely switch off.
The price for the energizing facial is AED 250, and can book via the website http://theloft5thavenue.com/
The finished job will have even the most rugged, grooming unaware amongst us booking a monthly follow up.
