Pre Holi hair and skin care tips
Your mum would have advised you to always oil your hair and skin before going to play Holi. Do you know the reason for that? Oil forms an extra protective layer on your hair and skin so that the color does not stick to you much and cause damage. Almond oil has a lot of moisturizing properties and is extra good for your skin and hair.
Obviously, you will be going out in the sun, and your skin will be exposed to it along with colors. In the month of March in India, the heat has almost started to gear up, use a sunscreen of SPF 30 for the Indian heat.
If you have dry skin you must apply sunscreen first then wait for 15 minutes and then put on moisturizer. Again this will not let the color seep in deeper into your skin, and your skin will not be damaged.
Stay away from toxic highly pigmented colors that take days to remove. They are a total no go for your skin. Stick to the age-old Gulaal. Any other type of hard, oil-based color would be a total disaster for your skin.
Holi colors can create minor skin irritations and burns, use a zinc-based barrier cream to hydrate your skin beforehand.
Use the good old lip balm for your lips, you can also put ghee or Vaseline petroleum jelly on them.
Apply nail varnish, these will keep your nails from absorbing Holi colors into your nails.
Not just bhang, but a lot of water, juices and coconut water as when you keep yourself hydrated from the inside your skin will not go dry, and it won’t be damaged by the colors thus.
Post Holi Hair and Skincare Tips
As soon as you come home looking like an ugly hungover rainbow, rinse your face with cold water. Dry it. Apply cleansing milk all over and rub it off with a cotton ball.
Moisturize it with lotion after washing your skin. As this will undo the damage and also give you less burning sensations.
Mix curd, turmeric, honey, and besan and apply it on your skin. You can also use aloe vera cream to cleanse. This will help you moisturize your skin and fight against infection.
If there is itching on your skin, add two tbsp of vinegar in your bucket. After the bath, if the itching sensation still does not go and you have developed red patched than you need to consult a doctor as soon as possible.
It is strongly advised that you do not use bath salts, exfoliators, and body scrubs for at least two days after playing Holi. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight too.
We hope these pre and post-Holi skin care tips will let you enjoy Holi better. Go crazy this season, dance more, color more and also shop more.
