Hello Ladies!!! Stay Beautiful this Ramadan

Ramadan is here and the combination of summer and fasting can definitely affect your skin but we are here to provide you with our golden tips:

Hydrate:

As we all know that drinking enough of water can benefit our skin. So when you break your fast make sure to eat some of the food which is water based like soup, cucumber, watermelon etc. Try to drink 8-9 glasses of water before you start your fast the next day. Some people don’t like drinking plain water so they can experiment with lemon or fruit water as it boosts your immune system. Low intake of liquids can lead to dehydration and the effect of dehydration can make your skin dull and make your complexion look lifeless. Most importantly, avoid drinking sugary and carbonated beverages.

Make your food choices as smart as you:

It is true that how you look shows what you eat. Make a special effort and avoid oily/fast food, sugar and refined carbohydrates this Ramadan, they are really bad for your skin and complexion. Over consumption of these food groups can lead to blemishes, breakouts, glycation with early aging and lackluster sallow skin. To achieve a healthy body and healthy skin, eat fresh vegetables, proteins, and fruits. Eat right and exercise to impart your skin with a healthy glow from within.

Time to pamper your eyes:

Yes, you read it right, don’t forget to pamper your eyes. It is important to have 8-10 hrs of sleep every night if you want to avoid dark circles and look tired at the end of Ramadan. Research has shown us that day sleep is not as beneficial as night sleep because the body only repairs and rejuvenates during night, with peak repair activity after midnight.  Give your eyes a little attention by placing tea bags or a wet cotton dipped in rose water. This will definitely give a relaxation to your eyes with minimum chances of getting dark circles or dull eyes.

Treat your skin:

Exfoliate your skin regularly because exfoliation stimulates blood circulation in your face. Rinsing your face with cold water after exfoliating can help close pores. Moisturizing can also help your skin not to look flaky. Use a hydrating moisturizer that makes up for lack of water consumption during the day and don’t forget to stick to your sunscreen.

Don’t say “NO” to physical activities:

Add exercise routine after Iftar to maintain your physical health & body in shape. Sweat purges the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes leaving you with a glowing skin.

Quit Smoking:

Ramadan is the perfect time to quit smoking. Smoking is not only bad for health; it is also really bad for your skin. Smoking causes early aging in the form of poor & blotchy skin tone, broken capillaries, collagen & elastin damage with sagging skin, hair loss, gums and teeth damage in addition to other life-shortening cardiovascular problems. Smoking causes changes in the composition of the skin, causing premature aging. Based on scientific studies, the skin loses its elasticity and acquires small red lines due to the dilation of blood vessels. The more you smoke, the more your skin ages rapidly.
