Ramadan is a month of fasting and spiritual reflection observed by Muslims worldwide. While this religious practice brings spiritual benefits, it can also pose some challenges to the body, including dehydration and breakouts. However, with a few lifestyle changes, it’s possible to combat dehydration and breakouts during Ramadan.
Dehydration is one of the most common issues faced during Ramadan, and it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. Drinking enough water after iftar until sehari hours can help prevent dehydration, which can manifest in several skin issues such as dryness, itchiness, and even acne. We love pakoras and samosas, especially at Iftar, but they are the best options to feed your stomach after a whole day of growling. Consuming foods rich in water content, such as cucumbers, watermelon, and soups can also help maintain hydration levels in the body
Avoid Oily and Comedogenic Skincare Products
During Ramadan, the skin is more susceptible to breakouts as the body undergoes changes due to fasting. It’s crucial to avoid using oily and comedogenic skincare products that can clog pores and lead to acne. Instead, opt for non-comedogenic products that are less likely to cause breakouts. Look for products that contain hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, or 3D Vitamin C serum that can help keep the skin hydrated without clogging pores.
Cleanse and Moisturize
Keeping the skin clean and moisturized is essential to prevent breakouts and maintain healthy skin. During Ramadan, it’s important to cleanse the skin twice a day and moisturize regularly to avoid dryness and flakiness. A gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils and a lightweight moisturizer can do wonders for the skin. You can also opt for 3D medical grade facials for clean and hydrated skin.
Protect the Skin from the Sun
The sun can be harsh on the skin, and fasting can make the skin more vulnerable to damage from the sun’s harmful rays. Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen like 3D Sunblock SPF 50+ can protect the skin from sun damage and prevent premature aging. It’s also advisable to avoid exposure to the sun during peak hours when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
