Sweet Dreams Interior buys for the bedroom

  • Sweet Dreams Home  01

    We believe your bedroom should be a personal sanctuary. A place to switch off from the rest of the world and drift off into a comfortable snooze.

    While we’re all for colourful ornaments, bright art and a mishmash of printed pillows, when it comes to your bedroom, it’s usually best to keep the decor simple and clean. The fewer items in the room to distract you while you try to sleep, the better.

    The same applies to wall and colour palettes – opt for muted shades of grey, beige and white, which have been proven to help improve sleep patterns.

    The shopping malls in the Middle East are bursting with décor finds to fill your bedroom, from luxurious interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable buys found in Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre.

    Scroll down to discover a few of our favourite small luxuries to turn your bedroom into the ultimate slumber zone now…

    Décor tip: Create your own mini hotel room at home by investing in good quality bedding. While there is no need to spend thousands of dirhams, do look for the highest thread count possible – these are usually the softest sheets and will last for many years to come.

The skin care routine for you

Wonder why your skin lacks that healthy glow? Does your skin look dull or breakout easily? May be it’s time you adopt a skin care routine that works for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some simple steps to take care of your skin the smart way. Follow this routine and soon you will have youthful, glowing skin.

Beauty from inside out

Beauty starts from within; so make sure you are drinking enough water every day. Include a variety of fresh fruits and veggies to your daily diet and you are bound to notice an improved skin tone.

What’s your skin type?

It is important to identify your skin type. There are 5 basic types - oily, dry, combination, normal and sensitive. Once you understand your skin type, you will be able to pick the products that suit your skin best.

Step 1: Cleansing

A great skin care routine always begins with cleansing. Clean your skin at least twice a day to keep it fresh and free of dirt. You can find cleansers for all skin types at Sephora Dubai, City Centre Deira. Apart from having an in-house range of specially formulated products, Sephora also houses other skin care brands. Their choice of products is specially put together, keeping in mind the needs of each skin type. Apart from skincare, Sephora Dubai also has makeup products and fragrances from various brands, both classic and emerging.

Step 2: Toning

Toning is needed to restore your skin’s natural pH levels. This step also makes your skin resistant against infections. Simply dab the toner all over your face using a cotton pad. Leave it on and continue following this regime regularly for good results.

Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris is a gentle and refreshing toner and works really well on acne-prone skin. You can pick it up from Boots Dubai on the ground floor of City Centre Deira. Go for M.A.C. Charged Water/ Revitalizing Energy if you have dry skin. This toner leaves your skin feeling fresh and is available at M.A.C Dubai at City Centre Deira.

Step 3: Moisturizing

Moisturizing comes next. It works best if you apply the moisturizer up and across your forehead, from your nose across your cheeks and along your jaw and chin. A moisturizer also works as a good base before you apply your makeup.

Bath and Body Works has a great range of products for skin hydration and vitality. For those of you who are concerned about visibly ageing skin, their Intensive Night Reversal & Repair Cream could work wonders. Bath and Body Works is located on Level 1 of City Centre Deira.

You can find products that suit your skin at Flormar, Glam Gals and Lush as well.

It is very important for you to regularly follow your skin care routine. Once your skin adjusts to the new products, you are sure to get that healthy glow you have always wanted.
