Despite its relative short lifespan in Bangladesh, winter is perhaps the most lovable season of the year. The chilly breezes call forth a series of winter weddings and parties that go on as long as this pleasant weather lasts. While you make sure that your look is immaculate with the finest makeover, outfit, shoes and matching accessories, do not forget to take extra care of your precious skin that tends to lose moisture frequently in this season.
This is the time to stay one step ahead of the crisp winter winds and visit a salon where your skin can get its long-deserved pampering and become ‘winterproof!’
FARZANA SHAKIL’S MAKEOVER SALON LTD.
When it comes to exquisite skin, face and hair services, Farzana Shakil’s is the affordable big-league salon you simply cannot miss!
Among its wide array of facials and massages, the Shirodhara facial is a great pick for winter. The ‘shiro’ or head massage relaxes the scalp and the head, initiating a complete relaxation process, giving way to increased blood circulation.
In addition, the Ayurvedic Glow and French facials are customer favourites that are beneficial to improve the skin’s texture, enhance its glow and eliminate dry and dead skin cells. The price range begins from Tk 2000. Moreover, the hot hair oil massage and manicure/pedicure with paraffin are special recommendations for the season.
HARMONY SPA & KLEOPATRA BEAUTY SALON
Renowned for its spa and body services, Harmony brings to its patrons an excellent range of services for the chilly season. Starting off with its rich variety of facials, the Ayurvedic Navara Facial is recommended by the experts present there. It comprises a softening and moisturising process with a ‘binni rice’ and ‘malai’ (milk cream) pack that moisturises and adds a fresh glimmer to your face.
In addition, it includes a head to toe oil massage, all within a price of Tk 4500.
For dull and dry skin, the Chocolate Facial is a preferable and reasonable choice that comes for Tk 1800-2500. The cocoa and chocolates mixture used in this facial remarkably brightens and hydrates the skin.
Moving on to its commendable body services, the first favourite of winter is the Chocolate Body Scrubbing that restores moisture, removes dead skin cells, reduces wrinkles and leaves an overall radiance and softness on the body. The price is ranged between Tk 1800 and Tk2000.
The Navarakkhizi treatment is a package of body care, including shower and shampoo (and conditioning) as a fine finishing touch. The main process involves a hot bundle – a lukewarm mixture of binni rice, malai, and turmeric is filled into a small cotton sac and massaged on the body in circular motions. The Navarakkhizi costs around Tk 4000. Moreover, one very unique body service is the Hot Stone Abhyangam – a procedure of laying hot stones across the back. It is especially beneficial for relieving muscle and joint pain, and helps to relax and de-stress. It includes a body and hair oil massage and costs Tk 2500-3800.
The Podikkhizi & Elakkhizi service also goes recommended. A technique similar to Navarakkhizi is used for this service, with the exception of a filling of boiled herbs instead of the malai mixture.
Harmony Spa also offers a great range of hair care services that can be availed within a decent budget.

The Active Hydrating facial offers a soothing herbal mask and promises to leave you with a glowing and moisturised skin. The facial costs range between Tk 12000 and 18000.
