Ramadan Skin Care Routine!

Hello everyone! Ramadan Mubarak and I hope that this Holy month is going smooth and easy with you guys.

Now I’m sure we’re all suffering dried lips and cranky skin during Ramadan but there’s always a way to take care of your skin and keep it looking healthier than ever, of course while fasting you don’t feel like doing anything at all and all you want to do is rest and EAT! lol, but believe me after a couple of days when you start to notice the changes in your skin you’ll come running for a healthy skin care routine to boost your skin up high.

Here are a couple of tips I personally use everyday:

  • Number 1: DRINK DRINK DRINK WATER!

My first and most important tip is to stay hydrated, after your Iftar focus on drinking a good amount of water (at least 8 glasses of water from Iftar to Suhoor) to make up for the lack of water in your body.

We all know that water is crucial to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, so keep those glasses of water coming!

  • Number 2: Moisturize!

Since water will be working its way to hydrating your body on the inside your skin will also need some extra help to stay hydrated on the outside. To do so, try applying a little more of your daily moisturizer throughout the day.

Here are a couple that you may want to try:

  • Number 3: Sunscreen

If you’re a busy bee and you spend most of the day out in the sun (especially in this hot weather) please please don’t forget your sunscreen! It’s very important to protect your beautiful skin from all the sun rays it’s exposed to.

  • Number 4: Maintain a healthy diet:

I know I know, its hard during Ramadan, but at least try to add more fruit and vegetables to your Iftar and Suhoor that are rich in vitamins A,B,C to maintain and beautiful skin.

 

  • Number 5: Face Masks 

Pamper your skin twice a week with your favorite face mask, or you can try out My #1 Home Made Face Mask for a smooth, clear skin!

 

Hope you guys try these tips out and if you do please let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear from you!

A Guide On How To Dress An Inverted Triangular Body Shape

I hope you guys enjoyed the previous post on How To Dress: Triangular Body Shape because today I’ll be talking about How To Dress: Inverted Triangular Body Shape, which is the exact opposite!

As I said in the previous post, the volume in the triangular body shape is all in the hips, where the inverted triangular has all the volume on the shoulder and bust! Which means we’ll have to balance the body again by adding more volume to the hips, and defining the waist.

Just imagine the top part of the body as an inverted triangular shape, and that we have to transform the bottom part of the body to a triangular shape as well, which leaves us with a perfect balanced hourglass shape!Inverted Triangular

Best Selection of Tops for an Inverted Triangular Body Shape:

  • Tops with dark colors
  • Wrap-style tops
  • Shirts and jackets that are tailored
  • Tops with banding at the waist
  • Narrow v-necks

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solution BB Cream

Hello beauties!

I got this BB Cream around two months ago before my trip to Dubai, I was afraid it might not last because of the hot temperature and the humidity there, but I was amazed by how long lasting it is and the coverage it gives!82343614f0aecf89e63145e85e6572ca.jpg

I have combination/oily skin, so all I had to do was set this with a powder, and it lasts all day.

A lot of products break me out and this one has not, instead I felt that it helped my skin in so many ways.

This Anti Solution BB Cream has a thin texture which gives you the feeling of a light, smooth skin. Considering this is a BB cream and the consistency is watery, it dries very quickly so make sure not to take long to blend it!

Overall I highly recommend it if you don’t have dry skin.

 

PROS

– SPF 40

– Perfect coverage

– Matte finish

– Nice packaging

 

CONS

– Dries super quickly because of its runny consistency

– Strong alcohol smell

– A bit expensive
