Keep Your Skin Clear This Ramadan: Try This Acne Solution Now!

Ramadan is a highly anticipated time for Muslims worldwide, including in Indonesia. Aside from being an opportunity to gather with family and friends, one of the eagerly awaited aspects is the bustling atmosphere filled with various foods.

This is evident from the abundance of snacks known as takjil, consumed during breaking fast. According to the Indonesian Dictionary (KBBI), takjil means to hasten (breaking the fast). That aligns with its Arabic root word, ajila, meaning to hasten. So, the purpose of Ta'jil/Takjil is to expedite breaking the fast with light refreshments.

The offerings tend to be sweet and refreshing, such as fruits, dates, fruit soups, mixed ice, or others. These sweet foods are often paired with other delicious snacks like fried foods, which Indonesians particularly enjoy.

A survey by Populix reveals that fried foods are a favorite choice for breaking fast. The survey titled 'Embracing Ramadan 2022' shows that the majority, or 74% of respondents, consider fried foods a staple for breaking fast. Additionally, 72% serve kolak (a traditional Indonesian dessert), and 65% serve rice with side dishes.

However, the health implications of these choices are significant as they can increase cholesterol levels and trigger heart disease. Yet, it's not just fried foods; sweet foods can also have significant health impacts. Essentially, the combination of oily and sweet foods has adverse effects.

According to The Dermatology Group, oily or high-calorie fried foods can trigger acne. Additionally, high-sugar foods lead to increased insulin, affecting hormones and causing acne to appear on the face.

That can potentially lead to a lack of confidence due to acne. One way to address this is by using products containing Salicylic Acid. Its benefits include exfoliation and acne reduction. According to the health website klikdokter, Salicylic Acid has many skin benefits, including removing dead skin cells, treating acne, reducing excess oil, and preventing signs of aging.

According to Mordor Intelligence, the global salicylic acid market is expected to grow significantly due to increased demand driven by factors like sedentary lifestyles and increased consumption of fast food, leading to more cases of chronic acne vulgaris.

One such product utilizing Salicylic Acid is TRIKENOL™ PLUS. This product can be incorporated into cosmetic formulations for treating acne-prone oily skin at various doses, depending on the desired effect. The INCI name for TRIKENOL™ PLUS is Methylpropanediol (and) Terpineol (and) Salicylic Acid (and) Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract.
