Eid is a time to shine, and that includes your skin! But with Pakistan's hot and humid weather, having a skincare routine is important to keep you glowing without feeling greasy. That's why we've sorted out the best skincare routine you can follow on the occasion. So, let's not wait anymore and reveal the secrets you need to hear!  

Step 1: Cleansing 

Before applying any product, it's necessary to clean your skin thoroughly. Don't forget this step even if you stay at home throughout the day. So, start with washing away the dirt, sweat, oil buildup, and maybe some leftover iftar! However, with Pakistan's scorching heat conditions, you don't want anything too harsh. Opt for a gentle, gel-based cleanser that removes impurities without stripping your skin's natural oils.

Step 2: Exfoliating

Cleansing alone is not enough; you need something more: exfoliation! It buffs away dead skin cells, revealing the brighter, smoother skin underneath. This is especially important before Eid, as it helps makeup go on smoother and last longer. However, don't overdo it. Exfoliate 1-2 times weekly with a gentle scrub or chemical exfoliant (depending on your skin type) to avoid irritation.

Step 3: Toning 

Not long ago, toners were a must-have, but many dermatologists now consider them optional. Toners can help refresh the skin and balance its pH levels. However, if you're using one, choose an alcohol-free and hydrating toner that leaves your skin feeling refreshed, smooth, and not tight.

Step 4: Moisturizing

Moisturizers are your best friends, so never break up with them! However, it's also important to recognize your skin type before opting for one. For instance, if your skin is acne-prone and oily, choose a water-based moisturizer that hydrates your skin without feeling heavy or greasy. Similarly, if you need hydration, apply a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid or aloe vera that locks in moisture without clogging pores. 

Step 5: Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a must, Eid or not! The harsh sun can damage your skin if you're stepping out to take Eid selfies. So, make sure your routine has a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher non-comedogenic sunscreen (meaning it won't clog pores). Apply it generously 15 minutes before stepping outside and reapply every two hours, especially if you're sweating. However, if your skin is prone to sweating, opt for the water-based and oil-free texture. 

Additional Precautions Throughout The Day 

While Eid festivities are undoubtedly fun, don't forget to take care of your skin! Here are some tips to manage your skincare during the festive rush:

  • Micellar Water: As Eid festivities last 3-5 days, use micellar water to remove makeup residue and dirt buildup. For the best and most effective results, use it twice a day. 

  • Miracle Patches To The Rescue:  Eid wouldn't be Eid without a surprise pimple popping up! But don't worry! The miracle patches absorb pus, reduce inflammation, and speed up healing. However, if you’re dealing with Acne problems constantly, check out the suggested Acne Prone Skin Deal & Acne Free Bundle for effective results. 

  • Let Your Skin Breathe: The constant makeup application can damage your skin. So, schedule some makeup-free time each day to allow your skin to breathe. 

  • Keeping Up With The Hydration: Now that Ramadan is over, you can keep yourself and your skin hydrated with the new Brightening Skin Bundle, filled with the richness of Vitamin C freshness. 

  • Dark Circles Remedy: Late nights celebrating Eid can leave you with unwanted dark circles. To combat them, try gently icing your under eyes with a chilled spoon for a quick fix, or you can try the magic of Retinol and Vitamin C added in our Eid special Ageless Beauty Bundle

  • Bonus Tip: Splashing your face with a hydrating facial mist throughout the day will help you feel refreshed and hydrate your skin.
