Holi is the festival of colors. It’s time for celebration and lots of fun but we all know colors can cause havoc on your skin due to harsh colors. Even if you use organic colors you still need to protect your skin so that it does not get damaged because of the sun and also to make sure that the colors come off easily. It’s very important to take care before and after playing Holi to avoid skin problems such as skin rashes, pigmentation, etc. Here are a few Holi skincare tips that will take care of your skin and you can enjoy the festival without any worries.

Pre- Holi Skincare Tips so that you can enjoy Holi while minimizing the damage:

  • Wear a full sleeve, covering clothes. The more you are covered the fewer are chances of colors damaging your skin. Try wearing clothes that cover the whole of your body to minimize the extent of direct exposure to colors. Wearing dark colors will ensure that the colors don’t get on your skin so easily.
  • Before heading out to play it’s very important to apply oil and rich moisturizer to your skin. Apply oil on the face, neck, ears, hands, and legs. The color can be removed from the skin easily by doing this.

Post Holi Skincare Tips 

  • Holi colors are loaded with chemicals that are too harsh for the skin. To remove the colors don’t rub your skin too vigorously that can cause skin rashes. To remove any color, wash your face with cold water. A foaming face wash can be ideal to use. Using cleansing milk the colors come off easily. If still, it doesn’t come off, dip the cotton ball in coconut oil and apply to your skin, keep it for a few minutes and then again wash. Once colors come off apply a good moisturizer because your skin may feel dry.
