The Moroccan bath or ‘Hammam’ is a traditional ritual that has become a staple of Dubai and Middle Eastern culture, and for good reason.
The experience is incredibly relaxing and enjoyable, and there are many health benefits associated with it, most of which are particularly helpful during those scorching Dubai summers.
The relentless sun can dry out the skin, and damage its natural moisture barrier. This can result in irritation, lost elasticity and even premature ageing.
Here’s why a Moroccan bath is essential in Dubai summers:
Improving your skin’s health
Exfoliating and hydrating the skin is one of the most effective things you can do to improve its health after a day under the harsh rays of the Dubai sun. You will get a warm and delightfully rough exfoliation during a Moroccan bath, scrubbing away dead cells with special exfoliating mitts and a rub treatment. And with the milk and honey baths, your skin will be instantly drenched with nourishing moisture to help your skin feel light, soft and silky smooth.
Finally, with a bit of massage therapy, any tension you are carrying in your muscles will be released. And the combination of washing, exfoliating, hydrating and massaging your body will fend off the potential for premature ageing that can be caused by intense sunlight. Maintain your youthful vibrancy and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Straight up, they are extremely relaxing. Soaking up the steam as you enjoy the rich scent of the products gives a profound sense of calm, and the deep cleanse and exfoliation will make your skin and muscles feel divine. Relaxation of the body and mind is important for eliminating stress and lowering cortisol, and a Moroccan bath delivers on all fronts.
That deep cleanse is reason enough in itself. You’ll never experience cleanliness that matches the feeling after a Moroccan bath; you’ll be scrubbed thoroughly so that every pore on your body feels cleansed and refreshed. The rubbing and scrubbing has a positive effect on your circulation, which helps the body detoxify and heal quickly. This is perfect for promoting your body’s natural defenses against the damage from the Dubai sun.
