Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize. Most people swear by these three basic steps and live to see the miraculous results. Add serum and a facial mask treatment into the equation and it will provide you with that extra care for your skin. If you know what your skin type is, you would definitely know what products are suitable. However, caring for your skin surely cannot be done the night before Raya so make sure it has already begun and be consistent in your practice in order to ensure that you will really glow from the outside.

 

2.  Eat Right

Though the fasting month can somehow alter your taste buds and appetite because everything looks delicious, make sure that the food you buy or prepare serves a purpose too, especially for your skin. Avoid oily food or eating too much of it as it could affect your complexion. Since its Ramadhan, eat a lot of dry dates as you break your fast for it’s not just an energy booster, but among the benefits of eating dates is it can repair damaged skin cells and also promote skin youthfulness. Hence, eating wisely during Ramadhan may help one achieve a glowing complexion for Raya.

 

3. Stay Hydrated

This piece of advice has been emphasized countless times and yet people are still forgetting to drink up. When you’re dehydrated it will definitely show on your face and nobody wants a dull complexion on the first day of Raya, right? So make sure you take plenty of fluids and with this we mean plain water, even though it’s Ramadhan. Device ways to get enough water intake once you have broken your fast till sahur the next day. Or if you just can’t take plain water, consume food with high water content like cucumbers, tomatoes or watermelons. All in all, a hydrated you will result in a glowing you!
