Now that the Holy month is upon us, keeping your skin hydrated has never been more important as sudden changes to eating and sleeping routines can leave the skin looking dull and dehydrated and can lead to breakouts and problem skin.
Here’s our simple suggestions for how to keep your skin hydrated and healthy this Ramadan so you can look and feel better than ever.DRINK ENOUGH WATER
Fasting can cause dryness and dehydration, especially in the hot and humid climate that we live in. Be conscious of your water consumption during iftar and suhoor and prioritise drinking water instead of caffeinated drinks, sugary sodas and juices as they will strip the skin of essential hydration. Health professionals recommend drinking at least eight glasses of water between iftar and suhoor and drinking coconut water and fruit-infused water is a great way to flush out toxins and boost hydration levels.EAT A NUTRITIOUS DIET
What we put into our bodies is just as important as what we put on to them when it comes to skincare. Throughout the holy month, make sure that you’re fuelling your body with a balanced diet of nutritious food such as fruit, vegetables and whole grains as they will boost your energy and hydration levels. Avoiding fast food and highly processed food is always recommended if you want to avoid inflammation and skin issues and have a glowing and hydrated complexion.STAY ACTIVE
Spending more time at home and experiencing lower energy due to fasting can lead to reduced activity levels throughout Ramadan, but it is important to keep your body moving. Exercise has great health benefits and regular movement keeps the blood pumping around the body which is essential for healthy skin and your overall well-being. Health professionals advise building up your exercise levels gradually so you don’t put too much strain on your body, we suggest a brisk walk before iftar or some light stretching to keep active throughout the holy month.PRIORITISE SELF-CARE
Ramadan is a time for slowing down and reflection which makes it the perfect opportunity to pamper yourself. Adding a GLIST sheet mask into your self-care routine is a great way to show your skin some love whilst feeding it essential nutrients and hydration.
We recommend using the GLIST Ultra Hydro Plumping Mask this Ramadan as it targets deep into your skin cells to help retain your skin’s natural moisture for long-lasting hydration. We suggest using this mask between three to five times a week for an instant hydration boost that will leave you with a rejuvenated and glowing complexion.
