The holy month of Ramazan is officially here! With fasts running longer than 14 hours a day, dehydration becomes a serious concern for those fasting. It not only leaves your system drained out but also dries your skin, thereby causing breakouts, acne and inflammation. It is important therefore, to load up on all the good, nutritious stuff to ensure that your skin is ready for Ramazan.

While you’re giving up on food and water from sunrise to sunset, it’s necessary to find other options that help keep your skin fresh, plump and glowing through the day.

To make sure you don’t lose your healthy glow when fasting, here are 5 ways to keep your skin game going strong all through Ramazan...

Exfoliate regularly
 

Exfoliate regularly

Less in-take of water can take a serious toll on your skin. It can make you look dull and dehydrated. Precisely why, exfoliating can be your best bet in Ramazan. Exfoliation helps remove dry and dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface of your skin and at the same time increase blood circulation, which in turn helps you achieve healthy and glowing skin. We suggest you get your hands on the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask that is infused with 100% natural walnut shell powder that buffs away dead skin cells and reveals soft, supple skin. Exfoliate 3-4 times a week for refreshed, hydrated skin.

Never underestimate the power of facial mists. They not only help you refresh on the go but also keep your skin feeling smooth and looking healthy. You can prepare a mist all by yourself at home as well. All you need to do is pour some rose water in a small, travel-sized spray bottle that you can carry around. Whenever your skin feels tired and needs hydration, simply spritz some rose water all over your face to cool off the skin immediately.

Olive oil as a cleanser

Did you know? Rubbing a pea-sized amount of olive oil into your skin after exfoliation can work like magic in helping you achieve supple, baby soft skin. Olive oil is high in squalene, an oil that mimics your skin's natural sebum that’ll leave your skin barrier extra soft. That’s not all! Olive oil is also full of antioxidants that help fight skin damage caused by harsh environmental factors.
