Your Working Out in Ramadan Guide

Published

on

A question that has been circulating social media for the past few days

What is the perfect time to work out in Ramadan? Should you work out in Ramadan at all?

Working out in Ramadan gets way harder due to long fasting hours. The lack of food and water make us feel like we aren’t capable of doing the minimal movement, never mind exercising.

well, the truth is, fasting should not be an excuse to miss your gym classes or gain extra few pounds; on the contrary, Ramadan is a chance to lose few pounds and get ins shape

Before Iftar:

  • Training before Iftar is recommended for weight loss
  • Drink as much water as you can from Iftar to Sohour
  • The best time to work out is the last hour before Iftar
  • When you exercise before Iftar leads to losing weight as your body tends to burn more saturated fats

After Iftar:

  • If your goal is to build muscles, then training after Iftar is the best for you
  • Train after Iftar with a couple of hours, so your Iftar would have the time to be digested
  • Make sure you have a healthy Iftar meal

 

Tips:

  • Don’t work out in an open space during fasting hours, that might lead you to feel unwell
  • Whenever you decide to exercise, make sure you stay dehydrated from Iftar to Sohour
  • If you want to go for a run, the best time is around dawn (from 2 to 5 a.m)
  • Make sure to include protein and carbohydrate

Eid Special: All the Tanning Methods Women Swear by During Summertime

Published

on

Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t believe that getting that glorious bronze skin is the most important mission you have in summer. We all literally wait for the sun to come smother us with its golden rays of happiness and turn us into the crisp Goddesses that we aspire to be. We asked 5 women about their tanning secrets and bronzing spells and brought them all to you, in order to throw some wisdom in your pretty face:

1. “For me, beer is the ultimate tanning tool that most women don’t even know they’re missing out on. Ya, things can get a bit sticky but that glow you get at the end is worth all the hassle. Besides, what’s better than tanning and sipping on beer all at the same time? nothing. That’s what.”  –F.K. 23 yrs

2. “I don’t wait for the sun to tan because of all the fuss and the sand and all. That’s why I literally worship self-tanning sprays! All you have to do is spray yourself from head to toe; wait for the spray to take effect in approximately 3 hours and then you’re ready to go. Yep, that’s it. Bye, sun.” –S.T. 24 yrs

3. “I like to do things the way they should be done. I grab my tanning oil, pick a sunny spot, place my towel, cover myself in tanning goodness and then wait for the sun to do its magic. It’s highly important to purchase a tanning oil with an SPF no less than 50, though. Not getting skin cancer is definitely more important than getting the perfect tan.” M.A. 30 yrs

4. “I know it sounds weird but the key to a really good tan is Mecuricome, yes, that red antiseptic that you clean your cuts and scrapes with. IT WORKS! Don’t judge before you try. Yes, you’ll have to look like an oven chicken for a while but the colour you get afterwards is everything!” –F.A. 28 yrs

5. “It’s so hard for me to tan without getting some sort of skin inflammation because I’m so white. So, what I do now is; I apply some sunblock on my face, shoulders and chest first, then drench myself in a dark tanning oil, which works just fine for me.” –A.S. 25 yrs

Is Removing Your Pubic Hair Safe?

Published

on

A lot of people think that removing pubic hair is the best option and the debate about whether one should or shouldn’t remove their pubic hair has been long raging. Although doctors have advised against it, due to the possibility of getting an STI (Sexually transmitted infection), some women still choose to go completely bare down there. 

Is it hygienic and safe?

59% of the respondents to the JAMA Dermatology survey conducted by Dr. Benjamin Brevor, a urologist at the University of California have confirmed that they indeed choose to remove their pubic hair for hygienic reasons. However, removing pubic hair, especially regularly can cause injuries and cuts that allow bacteria to penetrate. So, what you may think is good to keep you clean down there, might actually be the cause of ‘not so cool’ infections. The only thing you’re dodging here is pubic lice.

the JAMA survey also found that a quarter of the people who use shaving, waxing, sweat, or scissors to clean up down there experience injuries. These injuries include: burns, cuts and rashes.

Well, you should avoid shaving at all costs. First off, shaving can cause the growth of ingrown hair and after a while, you’ll find that the new hair that’s growing has become thicker, taller and darker.

Second, through the survey, it was discovered that more than 60 percent of the injuries were related to cuts, meaning shaving was more dangerous.

Waxing is slightly safer, but still leaves the skin exposed for cuts or ingrown hairs.

Dr. Brever advised grooming less often and removing less hair to minimize the risk.
