Before anything, Ramadan Kareem to you all, we hope you’re having a blessed holy month so far and easy fasting. We all feel you though, we’re thirsty too.
We all fear dehydration and dryness in Ramadan, wanting to compensate for all these hours without water with 100 layers of moisturizers and creams. But did you know that fasting has actually been proven to reduce dryness? Crazy right? While fasting has numerous benefits, not just for your body, but skin health as well, we have compiled a list of 5 Beauty tips that will help you get the best out of your fast and maintain your glow this Ramadan.
1-Stick to your skincare routine
While Ramadan is all about spirituality and holiness, try to maintain your skincare routine as much as possible, as it is a form of self care and discipline. Fasting benefits your skin by reducing inflammation and decreasing hyperpigmentation, that is due to your regulated blood glucose levels that consequently boost collagen. That is why sticking to your routine while fasting will take your skin to another level. Here are a few recommendations for hydrating products crucial in your routine:
2-Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Because we stay longer periods without water or hydration, if you don't compensate for these hours when you break your fast your skin will dry out. Hydrating internally and externally are equally as important. Make sure to drink enough water during non fasting hours, the recommended amount is 2 liters, but make sure to space them out. If you suffer from extra dry lips in Ramadan here is what will help:
