The Ultimate Iba Skin Care Routine For Ramadan

Ramadan, the most beautiful time of the year is finally here! It is that time of the year when you finally take off time from your regular lifestyle and invoke your inner self to a more peaceful state honoring your faith, inner self and some time for introspection. This time is also meant for spending time with your family, close ones and friends, while sharing a meal together and celebrating the gift of this wonderful season of prayer, faith and repentance. 

Ramadan, it is that season or time of the year when one observes fasting that starts from sunrise and goes on till sunset. During this time, when one observes fasting, they avoid the intake of any sort of food as well as water. The fast begins with ‘sehri’ a simple and nourishing meal before sunrise and breaks with ‘iftaar’ a family feast after sunset. But, the fast during the day at times becomes much challenging in those parts of the country where summer temperatures shoot up to 42-43 degrees. Apart from dehydration of the body, your skin and overall self also tends to dehydrate.

While, the fasting is observed with rather deep faith and fervor, your body and skin isn’t really aware of this beautiful instance. Hence, they do suffer a bit throughout the day resulting in dry dehydrated skin, dark circles and at times tanning too. But, tiny little practices and a good skincare routine during this season will keep you glowing and fresh throughout.

Fret not beautiful people! We have curated a skin care routine as well as tiny skin care tricks that you can follow throughout the day and stay well hydrated and enjoy healthy skin. And, the best part is, we have curated this routine for both genders and all ages, which makes this a versatile routine. 

Before we begin, we would love to mention that all the products that we will be recommending ahead are from Iba Cosmetics, which is a Halal Certified brand and also it is PETA Certified, cruelty free and vegan. All these assets make it the pureest for you to use during this Ramadan. 

So, let’s begin…

Night Skin Care Routine

Ramadan evenings can be quite tiring after fasting for the entire day and then on to all the cooking for evening feast. But, no matter how tired you are, make sure your night skin care routine is followed religiously. 

First of all, make sure you wash your face with a mild face wash that suits your skin type. Iba has a variety of three face washes that might suit your needs & catering to skin problems you may have. You can select any one from the Youth Preserve Vitamin C Face Wash, Crystal Clear Green Tea Face Wash or the Ultra White Skin Tone Perfecting Face Wash. These face washes are gentle, paraben free, foaming and it is suitable for all skin types. 

Once you are done with cleansing, make sure you pat dry your skin and never wipe it. Wiping irritates the skin and at times it also causes rashes. 

Now that we’re done with the cleansing and drying part, it is now time to begin the moisturizing process. Make sure you always apply your eye crème in the very beginning. The skin around your eye is rather thinner than the rest of face and hence it needs extra love and care. Also, if you apply your eye crème after your moisturizer or serum, the eye crème won’t be able to penetrate into your skin. So, the best way is to apply it in the beginning. 

The correct way to apply your eye crème is to take three tiny pin sized dots around your eyes or directly on your ring finger tips. Now apply in a tap-tap motion and avoid massaging it in. Your ring finger has the least amount of pressure and it is perfect for your eye crème application. 

For your eye crème you can pick the Iba Youth Preserve Triple Effect Eye Crème which works in three ways. It helps in depuffing tired eyes, fights against dark circles and it also works against wrinkles.

The next step is to moisturize, no matter what you skin type is. There is a famous myth that says you shouldn’t moisturize if you have oily skin. Well, never ever believe it! Oily skin also needs moisturizing to maintain its pH level and prevent acne and pimples. 

Iba Crystal Clear 48HR Hydrating & Acne Fighting Aloe Vera Gel is just perfect. This gel-based moisturizer is just perfect for oily acne and pimple prone skin. It balances the pH level of your skin which hydrates your skin instantly.

Youth Preserve Skin Glow Power Serum should be your ultimate pick if you have dull and tired skin. This serum is perfect for all skin types and it is infused with a major boost of Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. This magical combination hydrates and repairs your skin from within, making your skin glow naturally within a span of 15 days. 

If you have extremely dry skin, then layering your skin with a night crème after your serum would be a smart choice. You can pick the Youth Preserve Glow Enhancing Night Repair Crème. This moisturizer is infused with fruitage complex, Moroccan argan oil, Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid which makes it perfect for your dry and tired skin. This moisturizer is sure to give you a healthy glow when you wake up in the morning.

Lastly, do not forget your lip balm. Whenever you are dehydrated, your lips tend to dry up sooner than the rest of your body and face. Dry lips often make us lick our lips involuntarily, and when the saliva on our lips dry up, it tends to make our lips darker eventually. So, no matter what always keep your lips well hydrated. You can pick Iba’s Moisture Rich Lip Balm available in three delectable flavors – strawberry, cocoa vanilla and alphonso mango. 

This was all about your night skin care routine for Ramadan. Now, it’s time for a few tips for the day while you are fasting. 

Make sure you keep splashing cold water on your face throughout the day if the temperature is too high. Keep Iba’s 3 in 1 Rose Water Toner handy, and spray is all over your face if your skin feels dehydrated. Make sure you keep your lips well moisturized throughout the day; hydrated lips are more comfortable than dry and chapped lips. 

Use your face wash twice a day, at the max thrice and not more than that. You don’t want to overdo and end up with irritated face skin instead. For other times of the day, just splash some cold water. 

We hope these tips will help you have a blessed Ramadan Kareem & amazing skin throughout!
