Tips and Treatments to Combat Dry Skin During Ramadan

Suffer from dry skin during the holy month? Here are five ways to keep your skin plump and hydrated during Ramadan.

The holy month of Ramadan is just around the corner. Fasting for long hours, paired with a lack of fluid intake can take a toll on your skin, particularly causing a dry, dull complexion. Additionally, the hot and humid weather should be factored in as it can further exacerbate your skin. The best way to keep your dry skin hydrated and healthy is to follow a thorough skincare regime throughout the month and indulge in a few beauty treatments meant for skin health.  Now is the perfect time to begin prepping, so that your skin remains fresh, moist, and plump as you observe fasting. Here are five ways to get ready for Eid and prevent dry skin during Ramadan.Silk PeelGet ready for Eid with a medical-grade treatment known as the Silk-Peel Dermalinfusion. The peel works by removing the dead skin cells that are accumulated in the top layers of the epidermis, thereby instantly revealing youthful, radiant, and healthy looking skin. The treatment uses the benefits of a special diamond tip exfoliation and can be customised and tailored according to the client’s needs and preferences. Getting this treatment done prior to Eid is a great way to ensure rejuvenated skin that looks and feels more hydrated. Benefits of indulging in the Silk Peel include minimising pigmentation and enlarged pores, fading acne scars, balancing uneven skin tone, minimising environmental damage, and hydrating the skin.ProfhiloProfhilo injections contain one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, and it's specifically formulated to add hydration to dull, dry skin. Besides adding moisture to the skin, it stimulates collagen production and improves overall skin tone and texture by adding a plumpness to your complexion. To achieve the best results, we recommend 2-3 treatments with a month interval in between each.Customized IV Drip Infusion

Our body requires sufficient quantities of nutrients every day to function optimally. Our diet ensures that our body is on track but once we begin fasting, the system is disturbed. In order to bring the body back on track and give it the fluid intake it needs, the custom IV infusion drip therapy is ideal. Through a customised infusion of vitamins and minerals, the treatment enables a high concentration of vitamins to be absorbed into the body directly as opposed to ingesting them where they get broken down. This treatment is an efficient and quick way to get your nutrients in and can be customised according to your needs. Perhaps, the most important benefit of the drip therapy is hydration, which tends to be heavily lacking during fasting. As such, it helps prevent dry skin as well. By infusing the body with water and vitamins, the therapy helps combat flare-ups, acne, and breakouts as well, which occur as a result of dehydration. It detoxifies and revives your body, which is much needed when you are fasting for long periods.PRX T33The latest method of facial peeling, which is completely non-invasive and does not use needles, is the PRX T33 bio-rejuvenation. The peel comprises a combination of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), hydrogen peroxide, and kojic acid. TCA is a popular chemical peel that dissolves dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin encouraging new skin growth thereby promoting younger, fresher looking skin. With the PRX T33, a combination of ingredients activates a regeneration process that does not affect the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. The blend of TCA and hydrogen peroxide stimulates and works directly on the dermis non-invasively and in the process minimises any sort of aggressive external exfoliation. The treatment promotes stimulation of fibroblasts without damaging the skin. Besides minimising fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and melasma, overall, the treatment rejuvenates the skin and tightens it so that the skin looks youthful, radiant, and glowing, which is perfect for a pre-festival prep.Drink 2-3 Litres of Water

This goes without saying that hydrating is key during the window where you break your fast. Drinking sufficient quantities of water is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Start drinking the recommended 2-3 litres of water before and after you break your fast, ideally with a lemon squeezed into it to detoxify. Prior to beginning your fast, ensure you get organic hydration as well by incorporating water-rich foods into your diet such as tomatoes and cucumber. This will help your skin survive the fasting period without compromising too much. Limit intake of caffeine and soda outside of your fasting hours as these tend to absorb minerals from your body leading to dry skin.Moisturise Twice A DayTo combat dehydrated skin, moisturising is extremely important. Lather on generous amounts of moisturiser twice a day and look for ones that have hyaluronic acid in it to provide that extra hydration topically. This also helps your skin retain moisture and minimises chances of dry skin.
