Holi is a fun-filled and lively festival in India celebrated in the full moon day of the Phalgun month of the Hindu calendar. The celebration of this festival begins with the lightening of the bonfire on the eve of Holi. At the very next day, everyone gather outside their houses and smear each other with bright coloured powders called 'gulal'. In order to enjoy this day to the fullest, you need to take care of your skin properly.

 

Below, some useful tips that you can try and use before and after a Holi bash in order to keep your skin safe from harmful chemical colours,

 

Before Holi

 

1. Applying Foundation

 

Before playing Holi, it is best to apply a good amount of foundation on your face as this will protect your skin from dry colours. You should also apply Vaseline on your lips to keep them hydrated.

 

2. Massaging your Body

 

You need to massage your whole body with oil at night before Holi. This is best to prevent your skin from harmful chemical present in Holi colours. You can use almond oil, mustard oil or any cold cream.

 

3. Applying Homemade Face Pack

 

For this pack, you need to mix 1 tablespoon butter, few drops of lemon juice, cucumber juice, radish juice, tomato juice and a bit of turmeric and apply it on your face and neck. When the pack gets dry, you need to gently rub it off with rose water and glycerine. This face pack is very effective as it moisturizes your skin and makes it easy for the colours to be washed away with cold water.
