Whatever your reason for wanting to make your own natural, free-from-chemicals deodorant – whether it’s to save money, to reduce waste or to know exactly what you are putting on your body – Natalya Konforti’s workshops will show you how. (Of course, everything is made up of chemicals, even organic food, even the freshest air we might breathe. So by “chemical,” what I mean are the non-naturally derived, industrially produced varieties.) Konforti, who grew up between...

When I was traveling around Canada over the summer, I liked to prod friends I hadn’t seen in a while with an announcement. “The thing you need to know about me now,” I’d say, “is that I make my own deodorant.” No one was excited by my joke, which was only told half in jest. I really had made my own during one of Natalya Konforti’s chemical-free deodorant-making workshops at Alserkal Avenue’s Kave in June and...

Victoria Parrucci, a 30-year-old Argentinian, originally landed in Dubai to work in the food and beverage industry. Then, the self-taught artist had a Theta Healing session and decided to learn the technique, which is part meditation and part pan-religious spiritual philosophy. Theta Healing was created by an American mother of three named Vianna Stibal in 1995, who claimed she used it to heal from cancer. She then went on to teach it to others. Next...

The UAE is preparing to make history with its first space mission and the two Emirati astronauts chosen for the job are doing their best to stay fit and focused.  The UAE’s first astronaut, Major Hazza Al Mansouri, takes off for the eight-day mission on September 25 at 5.56pm. When his spacecraft docks with the International Space Station (ISS) at midnight, he will become the first Arab to set foot there.  Al Mansouri and his...

While many people tend to put off altruism for various reasons, we often forget that an act of kindness can have a ripple effect on the community around us. Even less well-known is the power that selfless acts have to positively affect not only the recipients of those good deeds, but our own health and wellbeing. It might  seem counterintuitive, since altruism is about giving to others without getting or expecting anything in return (think,...

The signature facial at the Native Club, Zabeel House by Jumeirah, is one of the best I’ve ever had – and with my job, I’ve had a lot.  It lasts a decadent 90 minutes and includes the elements you might expect (cleaning, exfoliating, moisturizing) along with a few of the touches you hope for (a head massage and a face massage, with no pressure to buy products). But the real kicker is the spa’s use...

I’m a minimalist, which means I love doing something you probably loathe the very idea of: cleaning. Never did I have to be forced to clean my room as a child. I took to the task merrily, happily, purposefully. I make a mean bed – throws, pillows, configurations, tightly tucked sheets – and I do it upon waking. Likewise, hoovering is an exfoliation, removing the dead home cells to let the lively ones underneath come to surface...

People in the UAE like meat. But amid the region’s Arabic grill-loving, Aussie barbecuing, meat-sweat-brunch feasting culture is a growing movement toward all things vegan and vegetarian. Enter Beyond Meat. This US-based company has absolutely sizzled to stardom with its signature “bleeding” burger. With a flavor profile and texture similar to real meat, the Beyond Burger blows away limp, sad veggie patties of the past, all while maintaining a protein and calorie profile similar to actual...

From the outside, Olivia McCubbin does not look like someone who would be having problems with binge eating. Tall, glowing and fit, the 30-year-old Australian exudes health. It’s also her business, as co-founder and head coach at The Best Body Co, the fitness company she runs with her husband Adam.  But that is the thing with appearances — and the point McCubbin is now trying to make. “Many women and many clients look up to...

Health experts predict a wide-ranging so-called UAE “sin tax” will raise awareness and prompt consumption of sugar and tobacco to plummet across the Emirates. The new regulations, which will come into effect in January, puts a 100 per cent tax on e-cigarettes, vaping devices and tobacco refills. Juices and drinks containing added sugar and sweeteners will be subject to a 50 percent tax. Dr Vikram Hundia, a consultant endocrinologist at Dubai’s Al Zahra hospital, told...
