Moisturize Your Situation!

Salaams Beautifuls!

I know during Ramadan we Muslimahs are busy with ibadah (worship) in addition to our daily family obligations but that is no reason to neglect one's self!


In the morning when I wake up to prepare suhoor (breakfast) for my family I wash my and apply my moisturizer of choice which most days is Zaja Naturals Fitoderm. I love this stuff!! Other times during the day after performing wudu(ablutions for prayer) I will mist my face with MAC Fix+ and follow up with the Fitoderm or Oyin Afterbath!


I have also been doing a lot of pre-shampoo treatments as of late to keep my UBER dry hair moist. I will do a combo of Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Oyin AfterBath or plain coconut oil. I saturate my hair either overnight or right before I jump in the shower, pay special attention to the ends of my hair.


I like to moisturize in the shower and just blot off after. It leaves my skin super moist. Broken record time (lol): I use either Oyin AfterBath or coconut oil for this job.


I cannot stress enough to drink plenty of water!! I am horrible at this myself. For those of us who are fasting it is doubly important to get in plenty of water at suhoor and at iftar. I'm so serious.

Okay ladies I'm off to get some post-fajr sleep.

ma'a salaamah

Wa Alaykum Asalaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu Zainab1,

I'm glad you enjoyed the post :). I used to completely let myself go during Ramadan with lack of sleep, improper eating and hydration and then wonder why I'd get sick. No mas!
