Palliative care for the terminally ill is still severely limited across the UAE due to inadequate, dated insurance policies and a lack of trained experts to care for the dying, healthcare professionals say. As palliative care is only available in a few hospitals, there is also a shortage of options for advanced pain management, despite an Emirates-wide push to advance healthcare options.  This leaves many end-of-life patients suffering, with pain being one of the most...

Standing almost 900 feet or 300 meters high and visible from miles around, the FIVE Jumeirah Village hotel is one of Dubai’s most striking new buildings. But beyond bringing a touch of chic to Jumeirah Village Circle (infinity pools on most of the rooms’ balconies will do that), it has also provided a much-needed boost to the community’s health and fitness options, including short workouts. The new InstaBody gym is a sprawling facility with four...

The Instagram video shows a stunning bare-faced model staring into the camera as Scars To Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara plays in the background. Words begin to appear in bold black marker pen on her face and body: fat, stupid, fake, ugly and failure. But as the key changes in the song, so does the sentiment.

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...
