American Board of Dermatology certified dermatologist Dr. Lana Kashlan, who is also a consultant dermatologist at CosmeSurge, shares her top tips for skin care during the holy month.
Dry Skin is a common skincare concern that can be specifically noticed during fasting throughout Ramadan, due to low water intake. With the Holy month 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 less hours of sleep, the skin requires extra care and moisturising. Using Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel, can be an effective way to lock-in and retain moisture into your skin.
Dr. Lana 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 moisturisers. 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 moisturising effects, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is also proven to be non-comedogenic. “Even though it has powerful moisturisers 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.
“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.
