It’s no secret that hydrated skin equals a radiant complexion, and with Ramadan a matter of days away, it’s time to up our beauty regimes to ensure our skin isn’t thirsty and the rising outdoor temperature doesn’t make our complexions dry.
Luckily for us, the Swedish skincare brand FOREO is stepping in. The super-cool company produces facial cleansing brushes and eye massagers, which when used to apply cleaner can help your skincare products penetrate beneath the surface so they hydrate at a deeper level. Dreamy!
It also has a motor, meaning the pulsations gently dislodge and remove 99.5 per cent of dirt and oil impurities from the pores, as well as well dead skin cells and make-up residue, meaning a radiant, healthy and naturally beautiful complexion is achieved. We’re impressed.
All you need to do this Holy Month is set aside a measly two minutes each morning and evening with your regular cleanser. And FYI, if you're a multitasker (who isn't these days?) the LUNA 2 is a silicone device, so it can be used in the shower while you're hair washing. Perfection!
Here’s how to use it:
Remove all make-up, dampen your face and apply your regular cleansing product.
Wet the LUNA 2’s brush surface, then turn on the device by pressing the centre button once, activating the Cleansing Mode. It’s recommended you spend around 15 seconds cleansing each zone of your face (jaw to ear, forehead, nose and cheeks).
Next, press the centre button to activate the lower frequency Anti-Ageing Mode, then place and hold on the region between the eyebrows, the right and left temple and the right and left nasolabial fold (that's the skin fold that runs from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth).
The next consideration during Ramadan is dark circles and bags under your eyes, as your morning and evening routine shifts. Well fear not, as IRIS, FOREO’S Illuminating Eye Massager, reduces these by gently massaging the eye area. And if you're an under-eye-cream-applier (you really should be), the clever device helps with the absorption of your favourite products while giving a thorough, relaxing massage.
Side note - if you haven’t been massaging your eyes, where have you been? The iconic anti-ageing tool has won more than 80 design and beauty awards in past three years, so do keep up.

Finally, we all know that Ramadan is a super important time for family as well as reflection, and we literally have to shout out the brand’s UFO (Ur Future Obsession) smart mask treatment – as it fast tracks us to flawless-looking skin in a 90-second (yes, really) spa-worthy facial. Sheet masks typically take 20 minutes, so this means we save more than five days annually. Family, time we're coming for you.
