Every woman should pay extra attention to her skin during the month of Ramadan. In some cases, fasting combined with the humid weather can have a negative effect on your skin.
Take care of the skin is very necessary especially during the fasting in Ramadan. Here is a list of things you can do to take care of your skin and keep it hydrated during Ramadan.
1. Drink lots of water after fasting
When you break your fasting, make sure you eat meals that are water based, such as soup. Some nutritional fruits and vegetables to eat during this season of fasting are watermelons, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes and starfruits. They’re perfect to help you stay hydrated with their high water content. Getting enough water is crucial as water is necessary to keep your body functioning and your skin during Ramadan.
2. Reduce the intake of dairy products
It has been said that dairy products lead to acne and pimples. Keep this in mind and stay away from the dairy products and other Ramadan desserts to prevent your skin from breaking out.
3. Avoid sodas and caffeinated drinks
As much as we enjoy sipping tea or coffee in the early morning, it’s best to avoid drinking caffeine during ramadan. Caffeinated drinks contain diuretic effect, a substance that causes your body to produce urine, resulting in mineral loss from the body, which has a negative effect on your skin.
4. Don’t forget to pamper your eyes
Ramadan is a hectic time, and you could easily notice the appearance of dark circles under your eyes. Give your eyes a little attention by placing tea bags over your eyes, and try to get eight hours of sleep every night. This will definitely take care of your skin during Ramadan, giving your face a soft glow.
5. Aim for the shade
If you are running errands in the morning, try to avoid the sun as much as possible and walk in the shade whenever you can, and of course apply sunblock to your skin before you head out. Hot temperatures cause you to break out in a sweat, causing fluid loss, which affect dehydration on skin.
6. Load up on nuts
The perfect thing to snack on during Ramadan to take of your skin is nuts. Eating cashews and almonds play a big role in rejuvenating your skin because they contain large percentages of fibers and fatty acids.
7. Sleep well
As all the routine is changed during this month and most of the people get less time to sleep, you must try to get proper sleep of 7-8 hours. If you don’t get time to sleep at night, you may have a nap in the afternoon. Your skin will look real fresh without dark circles around your beautiful eyes after a regular and proper sleep.
