With the holy month of Ramadan comes a fasting period from dawn to dusk. Though the month presents a shift from our daily routine of taking meals, it is still possible to look our best. Staying refreshed during Ramadan should be a priority, as it helps to maximize this season. You can stay fresh and beautiful throughout Ramadan with these five easy tips and tricks.
Eat a well-balanced diet
Nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals should make up your suhoor and iftar meals. Staying fresh and beautiful throughout Ramadan begins with what you take into your body. In addition, make fruits and vegetables a part of the diet. Fruits like dates, cucumber and oranges can be used to break your fast. Your meal plate with a decent amount of all necessary nutrients should keep you fresh as Ramadan progresses. Lastly, when you eat, eat slowly so you don’t make your body too filled up.
Drink water more than other fluids
Staying hydrated is another tip for looking fresh and beautiful during Ramadan. Dehydration could lead to tiredness and dizziness. Essentially, take enough water between and during your iftar and suhoor meals. Avoid caffeinated and sugary drinks and stick to water more. You can also stay hydrated by reducing strenuous physical activities and limiting your time in the sun. Drinking soups rich in vitamins and liquid is also helpful.
Spend time with family and friends
Spending time with family and loved ones tends to deepen love and lift your mood. You can spend time with family when you eat, pray, hang out, or attend festivities together. Invite others to your home and encourage each other as you break the fast together. Doing this can energize you during Ramadan and keep your spirits glad.
Maintain a light workout regime
You might have had an exercise regime before the fast began. Rather than stopping your exercise, you can make it light and low-impact. Take walks that keep you going, e.g. to the market or school instead of driving. Use the stairs instead of a lift. The aim is not to stay sedentary but keep your body physically active to stay refreshed during Ramadan.
Take care of your skin
While maintaining a healthy diet and staying hydrated for your insides, you can also extend the same goals towards your skin. Maintain your skincare regime if you have one. You can also maintain healthy skin by staying hydrated, moisturizing well, cleansing your pores and using sunscreen. Similarly, you can eat foods that will make your skin glow. Anti-oxidants like berries and almonds should do the trick.
An extra tip for you is to sleep well. Make sure you take as much time as your body needs to rest well.
Maintaining these tips to stay refreshed during Ramadan is that you build habits that keep you looking fresh and beautiful even after Ramadan.
Enjoy your Ramadan!
