Top 5 Skin Care Tips - Ramadan Edition

by Felicia El Hajj

During Ramadan, many people experience a shift in their routines and lifestyles. Amidst the fasting and hectic schedules, it's easy to forget skincare. However, keeping good skin throughout this sacred period is critical for general well-being.

Here are the top 5 skin care tips to help you achieve glowing and radiant skin during this special time:

  1. Hydration is Key:
    Drinking plenty of water during non-fasting hours is crucial for keeping your skin hydrated from within. Dehydration can lead to dullness and dryness, so make sure to replenish your body's water levels throughout the day. Incorporate hydrating foods such as watermelon, cucumbers, and oranges into your meals to replenish lost fluids and maintain skin moisture.
  2. Embrace Radiance-Boosting Products:
    Incorporate products containing vitamin C or niacinamide into your skincare routine to enhance radiance and combat any dullness that may arise due to changes in diet or sleep patterns during Ramadan.
  3. Combat Dark Circles:
    Lack of sleep and changes in eating habits can contribute to dark circles under the eyes. Consider using an eye cream with ingredients like caffeine or hyaluronic acid to reduce puffiness and brighten the under-eye area.
  4. Prioritize Sun Protection:
    Even during Ramadan, it's crucial to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, especially if you spend time outdoors. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 daily, even on cloudy days. Consider wearing a wide-brimmed hat and seeking shade whenever possible to minimize sun exposure, particularly during peak hours.
  5. Embrace Minimal Makeup:
    During Ramadan, consider embracing a more natural look by minimizing heavy makeup and letting your skin breathe. opt for lightweight, breathable formulas that won't clog pores or feel heavy on the skin.
