17 May Oral Hygiene and Skincare Tips During Ramadan
Ramadan is here! Fasting—combined with summer heat—will certainly have an impact on your skin and oral health if you do not take the necessary steps to avoid that.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is a crucial part of your daily routine—even when fasting. Taking care of your skin during the month of fasting is equally as important as maintaining good oral hygiene.
With the following professional skincare tips and expert dental care advice you will be able to take care of your skin and oral hygiene during Ramadan—and the rest of the year.
Brush and Floss on a Regular Basis
Brush thoroughly with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste after Sohour to avoid teeth decay and use a tongue cleaner to remove residual food particles that may cause bad breath.
Drink plenty of water and natural fresh juices. Your skin may not be receiving sufficient hydration while fasting. Drink lots of water during Ramadan to avoid skin dehydration. Try to space out your water intake during the non-fasting hours and do not drink all your water right after Iftar or right after Sohour.
Use Miswak (a teeth cleaning twig) during the fasting hours to help stimulate saliva to avoid dryness of mouth and bad breath.
Eat Healthy Fibers
There are many types of foods that can help dehydrated skin. Cashew nuts or almonds are chock-full of healthy fibers, fatty acids and proteins. These vital nutrients maintain your skin’s glow.
Avoid Sugary Foods at Iftar
Steer clear of sugar foods at Iftar. Break your fast with dates and water and try to consume more fruit and vegetables—which will promote overall health, as well.
Avoid Drinking Carbonated Beverages
Sugary beverages like soda, as well as caffeine, can cause skin dehydration.
Use a Mouthwash
During non-fasting hours, use a mouthwash to gargle to prevent any gum diseases and infections.
Since Ramadan has fallen between the month of May and June, temperatures can soar up to 45 degrees Celsius in Dubai. It’s vital that your skin is protected from intense sunrays. Make sure you apply sunblock to your skin during the day that’s at least SPF 30 or up—and reapply if you will spend more than 3 hours outdoors. Sunblock offers guaranteed full protection against sun radiations without blocking the pores.
Ramadan is a special time for spiritual connection and self-improvement. Keeping your skin and oral hygiene healthy is as important as maintaining a healthy diet. These tips will help you cleanse your body and detoxify your skin during the holy month of Ramadan.
