A few products you can add to your skin-care routine.

If you live in Dubai or anywhere in the Khaleej, you know that “summer” is a year-long affair. But your skin-care routine could use a bit of a face-lift during the hotter months of July and August.

Here are a few products you can add to your routine for both face and body.

١. Summer Fridays’ Jet Lag Mask
