Tried and tested
We asked an expert to find the best treatment for that special man in your life.
Treatment: Amra for Men Meteorite Ritual, best for Detoxifying your skin
This ritual is a scrub, wrap and massage all neatly wrapped into a 90-minute session that’ll make him wish he did this more often. We recommend getting there to the Waldorf Astoria in DIFC a little ahead of time. This will give him the chance to take advantage of the sauna. When he’s ready, he can proceed for the scrub.
The not-so-secret ingredient in the ritual is the meteorite. Just so you understand the gravity of the situation, each meteorite particle is said to be 4.5 billion years old. These celestial particles are rich in minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and older, richer minerals our planet hasn’t even heard of yet. He’ll be able to feel the impact as soon as he washes off the scrub. His skin will already be soft and feel amazing. What you probably didn’t know is that the scrub also features platinum. And we’re sure you don’t need reminding that platinum has anti-ageing properties.
And finally is the wrap followed by the massage that will leave him feeling so relaxed, it won’t bother him that the football club he supports is losing yet another away game. And let’s be honest, that’s a blessing for you too.
The result: Soft, youthful-looking skin along with an overall feeling of relaxation. This is the 90-minute ritual he didn’t know he so desperately needed.
