Fasting in the month of Ramadan is a form of worship that is obligatory for all Muslims in this world. When fasting, we must endure thirst and hunger, not eating and drinking for approximately 14 hours. The body will begin to adapt to changes in lifestyle and changing diet.
When fasting, it is not uncommon for several disturbances to appear. Apart from common digestive problems, dry skin problems often haunt you. The skin will turn dull, cracked and rough. This skin condition is a symptom of dehydration caused by a lack of fluid intake in the body during fasting.
On weekdays or when you are not fasting, fluids will come out through urinating, defecating, sweating and so on. At that time, the lost fluids will be replaced directly from the food and drink we consume at that time. It is different when fasting, where the lost fluid cannot be replaced immediately until it is time to break the fast. This condition causes dehydration. In addition to making the skin dry, dehydration will also cause the body to become weak, tired, and other headaches.
The presence of skin problems during fasting is usually marked by the formation of fine lines either on the cheekbones, forehead or around the eyes. Not only that, often the skin becomes stiff, turns red and is followed by itching. Apart from making the skin dry, this condition will also cause the skin to become dull and peel off. In order to avoid a situation like this, of course we must be able to prevent it. Some simple steps can be taken to prevent dry skin during the fasting month.
