7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s the most im­por­tant meal of the day, the ex­perts tell us. Break­fast is im­por­tant nu­tri­tion­ally, but some of the in­gre­di­ents can also help your beauty rou­tine (and save you cash). Known for its use of nat­u­ral prod­ucts be­ing mixed up in the kitchen, Lush Cos­met­ics gave us some top tips on break­fast foods you can use on your face. See lush­mena.com for more in­for­ma­tion.

BUT FIRST, COF­FEE

Be­ing a raw stim­u­lant, cof­fee is great to in­vig­o­rate and soothe your skin.

The cof­fee plant (Ara­bica) is the most widely grown species, par­tic­u­larly in South Amer­ica, and pro­duces the best qual­ity cof­fee. Cof­fee is deeply aro­matic and this makes it per­fect for shower and bath prod­ucts. Cof­fee beans were tra­di­tion­ally used to soothe the skin. Mix ground cof­fee with co­conut oil for a scrub to in­vig­o­rate and liven up your face.

Av­o­ca­dos are full of un­sat­u­rated oil that re­hy­drates skin.

It soothes the up­per lay­ers of skin and it is good for dry, sen­si­tive and older skins. The oil is rich in vi­ta­mins A,B, C and E, all of which help to main­tain healthy skin, im­prov­ing its ap­pear­ance. Lush uses fresh, or­ganic av­o­ca­dos to nour­ish and soften the hair, leav­ing it strength­ened and con­di­tioned. Slather it on your skin and hair for an easy and nat­u­ral mask.

PEP­PER­ING IT IN

Black pep­per con­tains potas­sium, mag­ne­sium, vi­ta­min C and iron when eaten but it also has great top­i­cal val­ues. It is a warm­ing oil with stim­u­lant prop­er­ties. Aro­mather­a­pists rec­om­mend black pep­per oil for headaches, poor cir­cu­la­tion, aching mus­cles, as a nat­u­ral pain re­liever and to com­bat men­tal fa­tigue. You can also use it for break­outs as it con­tains
