Scented candles, stress-relieving neck and shoulder massages and a nice lime-coconut scrub are no longer the sole domain of women. With the male population, particularly in Doha, taking a great pride and attention in their appearance Time Out looks at some of the beautifying and pampering packages in the spas of Qatar available just for men.
You work out your body and exercise your mind, so it’s only logical that attention is also paid to your skin. This facial is designed to correct common damage to a man’s face.
