Abu Dhabi, May 15: Abu Dhabi Municipality has stepped up measures to ensure that salons, beauty parlours and cosmetic shops in the capital comply to health and hygiene rules throughout Ramadan, according to a report in the Khaleej Times.
Strict action is being taken against offenders by 40 inspectors fanning out daily in Abu Dhabi city and outskirts through surprise inspections.

It is said that the authorities have warned that beauty salons should avoid the use of expired cosmetics, harmful chemicals and other unhygienic practices. Fines will be imposed on the salons found flouting the health and safety rules, they pointed out.
