Tips on Skincare During Ramadan
American Board of Dermatology certified dermatologist Dr. Lana Kashlan reveals her top skincare tips and concerns during Ramadan, and treatment using Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel.
A practicing medical professional in CosmeSurge Dubai, Dr. Lana whose professional associations also include American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatologic Surgeons and Women’s Dermatologic Society, gives the top tips to skincare during the holy month.
The most common skin care concern is dry skin. This can be specifically noticed during fasting throughout the holy month of Ramadan, due to low water intake. The key objective of treating dry skin is keeping it moisturized, which is achieved with Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel; as approved by Dr. Lana: “The Dry Skin Gel has such a unique formulation and feel; it’s truly a novel product in the battle against dry skin.”
With Ramadan starting during the summer, the climate starts to change and the skin often feels drier and irritated. Considering the lack of liquid intake, harsh weather conditions and fewer hours of sleep, the skin requires extra care and moisturizing. Using Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel, can be an effective way to lock-in and retain moisture into your skin.
Dr. Lana also highlights the importance of the Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel’s texture: “One of the biggest complaints I get from patients with dry skin or eczema is that they hate the sticky feeling from heavy, cream-based moisturizers. Dry Skin Gel is great because it goes on smooth and absorbs quickly so you never have that tacky feel of a cream”.
Despite having powerful moisturizing effects, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is also proven to be non-comedogenic. “Even though it has powerful moisturizers like shea butter, the Dry Skin Gel is non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores”, says Dr.Lana, stating that it has proven to be popular especially amongst men: “I’ve even found my male patients like it because the unique formulation absorbs quickly in hair-bearing areas”.
Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is essential to glowing skin, used by dermatologists themselves: “Personally, I like to apply the dry skin gel before going out to my arms and legs because I love the way it makes the skin look smooth and it gives a great glow” – reveals Dr. Lana.
