With sleep deprivation and chances of dehydration during Ramazan, it is very likely that the effects are visible on your face, hair and skin.
Here are few beauty tips to keep yourself looking good.
Drinking enough water benefits your skin. Drink at least eight glasses between iftar and suhoor. Avoid drinking carbonated or sugary beverages such as soda and juices, as well as caffeine since it is dehydrating. If you do not like plain water, you can infuse it with fruits. It boosts your immune system, flushes out toxins, keeps you hydrated, and is calorie-free. Great combinations to infuse your water with are:
During Ramadan, chances are your skin is dehydrated due to fasting. This can worsen by over-washing your face. If you need to cool your skin, use a fix spray instead. Store it in the fridge for extra coolness; this also gets rid of puffiness.
Eat foods that make your skin glow
If you want radiant, healthy looking skin even when fasting, raise your antioxidant intake during iftar and suhoor. Eat foods that are rich in fiber and antioxidants, such as berries, almonds, dark chocolate and pomegranates. Have a handful of berries of your choice – they are a great source of the vitamins and minerals your skin needs after a day of fasting.
Moisturising your skin during Ramadan is extremely important. You should make sure that you’re applying a hydrating facial cream and body lotion after showering/bathing and before bed. If you’re heading out, try to seek shade where possible and opt for a day cream that contains SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
Treat your skin
Use a facemask once or twice a week. Also, make sure to exfoliate regularly; depending on your skin type, you can exfoliate your face up to twice a week. This helps clear clogged pores, and your skin feels smoother and looks more radiant.
Indulge in a silk pillowcase
Silk pillowcases help reduce sleep-related creases. They can help prevent tugging at your hair, which means fewer split ends, less bedhead and more confidence-inducing good hair days. Lastly, silk feels cooler to the touch (and arguably more comfortable) than traditional cotton and polyester pillows, which may help you sleep more soundly.
