Beauty Works West in Notting Hill, London, is set to launch the “Natural Man – Kahina Facial,” for those who like their martinis shaken, not stirred. The Kahina line is decidedly unisex; minimal scents (if any at all) and clean packaging means that that bottle of Kahina Argan Oil has a home in both His and Hers bathrooms. Now London chaps (like Jude Law? or Daniel Craig? or HRH the Duke of Cambridge?!) can treat themselves to Kahina in the spa as well with a treatment specifically designed for them.
Here’s how Beauty Works West describes it:
“Celebrated by the New York Times as the ‘latest miracle ingredient’, this super effective facial uses Argan Oil, the skin secret Moroccans have used for centuries to combat the harsh effects of the sun and reverse the signs of ageing. Perfect to revive, nourish and restore lacklustre skin.
Kahina’s Argan Oil is organic, contains no artificial fragrances and is paraben-free. Extremely rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it minimises the appearance of wrinkles, restores elasticity, protects the skin from environmental pollutants and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
So just relax as your skin is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated. Argan Oil is then applied and the expert hands of our therapist work their magic using lymphatic pressure points and deep tissue massage. Next, a mask and serum are applied to the face and neck, finished with the application of hot stones, by which time you will have entered Nirvana. Once the mask is removed, the serum is re-applied and worked in with ultra-sound to thoroughly penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin. The result – complexion perfection. Naturally.”
Combining Kahina with hot stones, ultra-sound, and massage? Sounds like the ultimate luxurious beauty ritual.
