A nourishing, complexion-boosting facial can do wonders for the skin. But when you’re facing looming deadlines and long work hours, it can be a challenge to squeeze in some much needed TLC into your overpacked schedule. Fortunately, there are a number of express treatments popping up on spa menus across Dubai, so you can achieve flawless, camera-ready skin without having to block out two hours in your black book. Read on for the best moisturizing, anti-aging, and detoxifying facials in Dubai that are speedy enough to fit into your lunch break.

Raw and Radicle Facial
15 Minutes – AED/SAR 300
at The Pearl Spa
Four Seasons Resort, Jumeirah Beach Road, Dubai
04 270 7777

Developed by technicians at the Pearl Spa, this ultra-hydrating express treatment uses Balqees honey, which is sourced straight from honeycombs in Yemen. The treatment begins by thoroughly cleansing and exfoliating the dermis to ensure total penetration of products. Next up, raw honey, which is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that help reduce redness and repair the skin, is applied to the face and left on for 15 minutes as a mask. The result? Smooth and radiant skin in less time than it takes to get across town in an Uber.

Detox Cleanse Facial
30 Minutes – AED/SAR 120
at Nbar
Dubai Design District, Dubai
04 553 8998

Perfect for those with oily or combination skin, this mini-facial is formulated to deep clean your pores and eradicate toxins using natural vitamin C and lavender. This facial relies on all-natural products from Amadoris Switzerland (exclusive to Nbar) to ensure that even those with the most problematic and sensitive skin will benefit. Conveniently located in the bustling creative hub Design District, working women can pop by for a quick skin boost during their lunch hour – and still have time to spare.

Margy’s Revealing Facial
60 Minutes – AED/SAR 595
at Talise Spa
Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai
04 366 6818

Deeply hydrating, this bespoke facial (which was developed for Talise Spa) promises to soothe the skin from the inside out, with a little help from the celebrity-coveted Margy’s Monte Carlo skincare products. By moisturizing the deeper layer of the epidermis and stimulating blood circulation, the treatment presses the reset button on the skin, leaving it immediately reoxygenated and refreshed.

Stem Cell Facial
90 Minutes – AED/SAR 850
at Tips & Toes
Al Barsha, Umm Suqeim St, Dubai
04 341 2020

Those who find themselves with extra time to spare can opt for this groundbreaking anti-aging treatment. Spiked with the first-ever blend of argan and comfrey stem cells, as well as supercharged de-agers like collagen, retinol, elastin, and other key actives, this facial works. Visibly reducing lines and wrinkle depth from the first treatment, it delivers a noticeably smoother skin surface with improved firmness and long-term protection of the skin’s naturally repairing stem cells.
