Radiant during Ramadan

Keep your skin and hair fresh and glowing even as you’re fasting in this holy month. Here’s how:

Eat right:
Include fresh fruits, salads and protein in your suhoor and iftar. Avoid spicy and oily food and drink a lot of water. Stay hydrated with detox waters, mix strawberries, cucumbers, mint or chia seeds in your water for that additional boost.
Your skin also gets dehydrated when you’re fasting. It is recommended to moisturise your skin 2-3 a day. Even if you have an oil skin, pick a get based lightweight moisturiser. If you have dry skin do moisturise as per reuired. If you are a busy girl on-the-go just add a bit of olive oil or almond oil to your moisturiser for loonger hydration.

Skin routine:
Tweak your beauty regime a bit during this season. Avoid frequent washing and scrubbing of face you will only lose your natural oils and will lead to dryness. In Ramadan limit using toners and astringents because these products not only rip off natural moisture from skin but can also make your skin feel dry. Use toner only once a day.
As the body's supply of water diminishes, the skin becomes dehydrated and more prone to sunburn and pigmentation. It also takes longer for the old glow to be restored and the darkening to fade. So, never ever skip sun protection before stepping out in the sun.

DIY Care:
Since Ramadan is during summer, your skin can use a little bit of extra freshness. Pour some rose water in a spray bottle and keep it in your purse. Whenever you feel tired just spray some rose water on skin to instantly freshen up yourself. Alternatively, make your fruit pack:
  • Mix 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or orange juice with 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture on skin for 10 minutes.
  • Take 3 to 4 tablespoons of grated papaya pulps and apply it on skin for 15 minutes. Papaya can serve as skin food for those who have dry skin. To prevent aging and other issues associated with severly dry skin you can mix a few drops of almond oil with papaya.
  • Grated apple with honey is a good face pack for normal and sensitive skin.

More Conditioning and Less Shampooing
To maintain shiny and healthy hair try avoid frequent shampooing and use mild shampoos instead of your regular shampoo. While conditioning never apply conditioner to the hair roots as this may cause dandruff and make your hair oily.
