It’s Ramazan which means everyone will be fasting and trying to be the best version of themselves.
With a heightened spiritual and mental level, it only makes sense to take care of your physical appearance as well. With all of the upcoming Iftaar parties, you know you’re gonna want to look bomb AF.
Just because you’re fasting doesn’t mean you can’t put your best foot forward for every Iftaar party. Here are just a few steps you can take to make sure you look AND feel amazing this Ramazan.
1. Drink plenty of water
Water… what? Aren’t we fasting? YES. Whenever you break your fast, make sure that you drink as much water as you can, this helps your skin stay hydrated!
2. Stick to eating healthy
It may be hard, but lay off the fatty foods as they dehydrate your skin. Opt for fruits and veggies instead.
3. Makeup sambhaal ke karo
The heat’s already picking up, and this sun is bound to melt your make-up and end up blocking pores, which can lead to breakouts.
4. Sunscreen ko best friend bana lo
To keep your skin healthy and plump and to protect it from harmful UV rays from the scorching sun whenever you go out, fall in love with sunscreen.
5. Try to make sure you’re not stressing a lot
Being in a cranky mood can be easy when you’re hungry AF, but take deep breaths and think positive thoughts! The positivity will radiate from within and make your appearance 10x better.
Since you’re only drinking water after Iftaar, it’s super important that you moisturize your skin more than usual. Not only does it prevent future wrinkles, it also hydrates your skin and keeps it looking fresh and plump.
7. Naps are crucial
Naps will help if you’re tired, angry, cranky, annoyed, hungry, etc. Your skin cells also repair themselves while you’re sleeping, so make sure to get a good night’s sleep during Ramazan and take a nice cat nap throughout the day.
8. In this garmi, you’re gonna want to keep hydrating your skin
Look. It’s hot and sticky. Dust and heat work a number on all skin types. Make sure to get right in there and scrub your skin clean from time to time.
9. Take special care of your under-eye area
Since our sleeping pattern is all over the place this month, we’re bound to get dark circles. Put tea bags, or potatoes under your eyes to help the eye bags clear up. You can also use under-eye creams at night to get rid of the pesky dark circles.
10. Use serums
Putting on serums (such as Vitamin E) help the skin rejuvenate. You can lather some on after sehri to give your skin that extra kick.
11. Roza enjoy karein
The most important thing is to have a good time and actually enjoy your fast! This time only comes around once a year, so cherish it. Don’t think about how hard it is. It’s a month filled with blessings. Just keep that in mind.
