How To Take Care Of Your Skin While Fasting

Millions of people around the world celebrate the beginning of Ramadan. A month of worship and great importance in the Muslim Community. Nevertheless, fasting is practiced in so many forms whether for religious or health/fitness reasons. This article is meant to be a quick guide on how to take care of your skin while fasting.

Abstinence from food and drinks might result in dehydrated skin. Effective hydration is key in maintaining healthy, glowing skin. This applies for all skin types, and all skin concerns. But here’s few tips to keep your skin healthy while fasting:

Get enough water

When you break your fast and before your start fasting again, try to drink as much water as possible. I know, time is limited, so you may not have time to drink that much water! But what you can do is add hydrating foods; such as soup and salads, fruits like watermelon and pineapples! Avoid fried food and salty meals. These tend to draw a lot of necessary hydration to balance the osmolality in your body!


Don’t forget your skin routine

If your moisturizer was important before, it’s definitely a game changer now! We like the hydrating cream from ZO Skincare line. It’s safe on all skin types even the sensitive ones. It was also approved as a post procedure hydrating cream. Another big one that we love is the Daily Power Defense, also from ZO skincare. This one not only hydrates the skin, it also enhanced the natural hydrating qualities of your skin so your skin will be able to hydrate itself from within! These two work greatly together! Here’s a link to order those if you need to

If you already have a hydrating cream, make sure it has all or most of these components in it: Hyaluronic acid, Glycerine, and Lactic acid.



Add a natural mist

You can create your own mist at home or buy one from a store. But face mists not only feel good especially in these summer days, they also give the skin an extra boost of hydration. You can make your own mist today, put it in a spray bottle and keep it in hand to spray as many times of the day anywhere on your body…

Our favorite recipe includes:

1 cup of water, I chopped cucumber, 3-4 leaves of fresh mint, and 2 table spoons of Rose Water (you can find it in Mediterranean or Indian stores).

This combination smells good and feels even better…


Make sure you give your skin the hydration it needs while you’re fasting. And for those of you who are fasting Ramadan, make sure to finish Ramadan with a skin that’s ready for Eid!

Happy Ramadan
