Summer here in the Middle East can really take it out of your skin, especially if you spend your days off lapping up the heat and harsh sun rays like I do (guilty). I find myself always on the hunt for new creams, facials and beauty tricks to rehydrate and zap the suppleness back into my skin.

Recently I popped into the fabulous En Vogue Beauty Centre in JBR and gave their Hydradermie Double Ionization Facial a whirl, with immediate results this facial is going to be a must in my skincare regime.

The Hydradermie Double Ionization facial, developed by the renowned French beauty brand Guinot, is a 60-minute treatment that increases the complexion’s radiance, and deep cleanses and moisturises the skin.  It uses positive and negative ions to rehydrate deeper layers of the skin and speed up cellular regeneration.  Quite literally, it is twice as effective as the normal ionisation treatment, and is recognized internationally as one of the most technologically and revolutionary advanced skin care treatments.

The treatment starts off with the application of double ionization serum gels onto the face, then two small metal rollers are passed over the skin – one producing positive electrodes and the other, negative – to get twice the skin benefits. The positive current helps the nutrients of the treatment gels to go deeper into the skin, while the negative current is pulling impurities out.  This is followed by an application of a high-frequency current with a high oxygen content gel that improves circulation below the skin. The gels are chosen specifically based on the client’s needs and are formulated to deliver nutrients to the core cells.  A relaxing massage caps the treatment to soften facial muscles and rejuvenates the skin.  The Hydradermie Double Ionization provides immediate and longer-lasting results – soft, radiant and moisturised skin.

Price for the Hydradermie Double Ionization facial is AED 400.
