It’s time to celebrate the most vibrant festival of the year – Holi. It brings us the joy of being drenched in hues of pink, blue, yellow, red, and violet colors which is above all and cannot be compared with anything.
Holi is celebrated across India with great fervor and enthusiasm. Right from eating our favorite sweets to throwing colors on our friends, we all like to celebrate holi with enthusiasm.
However, there is no denying that after playing holi, our skin and hair surely go for a toss. You cannot also deny the fact that most Holi colors these days are made using chemicals that can damage our hair and skin to a great extent.
Hence, to take care of our hairs and skin while enjoying holi, here are some pre-holi skin and hair tips that we can try this year.
Before applying anything on your face, massage it with ice cubes for about 10 minutes as they have the ability to close the open pores. It will also keep acne and other skin issues at bay. Once you are done with your massage, apply a generous amount of organic oil or sunscreen.
Almond oil works great for the skin and applying almond oil is something that you should consider doing before playing holi. It is a rich source of vitamin E and provides nourishment to the skin and acts as a protective layer between the skin and the colors.
Rather than using those regular lip balms, make sure you use petroleum jelly on your lips. Apart from your lips, you can also apply it on the neck, back of ears and between your fingers too.
This is the old-age technique that we all have been using for quite a while now. Always make sure to wash your hair s day before holi and later you can apply a layer of coconut oil. This will prevent your hair from getting dry and crimped because of colors.
