After a month-long spiritual journey of patience and determination; Muslims worldwide anticipate the upcoming celebrations – Eid al Fitr (Hari Raya Puasa) to mark the end of Ramadan.

With the festive period right around the corner, the main concerns to get ready for Raya are:
  1. Reversing the signs of fasting such as chapped lips, dry and dull skin and the general look of fatigue
  2. Maintaining a healthy diet when attending / hosting Raya celebrations, events and open houses
Putting these concerns at ease, here are 3 health and beauty secrets you can easily incorporate into your routine to prepare for Hari Raya!

1. Health & Beauty Secret For Glowing Skin

Add lemons to your juice recipes but make sure to keep the peel when you insert the fruit into your juicer. The lemon peel is very high in vitamin C, calcium and potassium – all of which boosts your immune system and gives you the natural glow.
Say goodbye to puffy eye bags and dehydrated skin and hello to your Hari Raya look! Boost your confidence with bright, glowing skin using this effortless beauty secret and take your selfie game to the next level.

2. Health & Beauty Secret For Soft, Red Lips

Leading up towards Raya, you should consume more fruits and vegetables that have a red pigment base such as pomegranates, beetroots and carrots. Increasing the intake of these produce will enhance blood circulation which helps to reduce darkening or dull skin.
For external purposes, make use of the fruit and vegetable pulp instead of letting these go to waste. Beetroot pulp can be used to create a paste, while carrot pulp can be applied directly on the lips to reduce discolouration and flaky skin.

3. Health & Beauty Secret For Hari Raya Food Alternatives

Resist the temptation of Hari Raya delicacies such as sugary kuih muih and calorie-rich ketupat, lemang, rendang etc. and maintain your healthy diet.
Replace kuihs with this guilt-free ice cream recipe that uses only 3 ingredients to boost energy levels and enhance the skin complexion:

  • Handful of spinach
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 lemon slice

With this quick and easy recipe, you are able to fulfill the Ministry of Health’s suku suku separuh recommendation for dietary intake rather than overloading on rich yet unhealthy Hari Raya food.
