Pre-Holi Skin Care Tips
Apply oil on exposed parts of the body
Before playing Holi, apply oil on your face and exposed parts of the body. With this, your skin will be moisturized and a protective layer will be formed on the skin, which will prevent chemical-rich colors from going deep into the skin. In such a situation, it will also be easy to wash the colors. You can use almond or coconut oil for this.
Use of sunscreen
Apart from this, do not forget to apply sunscreen on the exposed parts of your face and body. Because it provides you protection from harmful UV rays and prevents sunburn.
Keep skin hydrated
To avoid the chemical colors of Holi, keep the skin hydrated from both inside and outside. Drink plenty of water and fluids to keep hydrated from the inside and apply moisturizer to provide extra moisture from the outside. Because, dry skin becomes difficult to clean and the colors tend to settle in the crevices of the skin, causing an itchy and flaky layer to form on the skin.
Cover yourself as much as possible
For this, keep yourself covered as much as possible. Apart from this, wear full-sleeve clothes to protect your skin from direct sunlight and avoid coming in direct contact with chemical-rich colors. Also, avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes, otherwise, you may have rashes and irritation.
Post-Holi Skin Care Tips
Oil based cleanser
After playing Holi, use an oil-based cleanser to remove the colours from your face. With this, you will be able to remove the colors easily and it will not cause any harm to the skin.
Apart from this, do double cleansing of your face. For this, after cleaning your face with an oil-based cleanser, use a mild, gentle foam-based cleanser. Apart from this, you can use sulfate-free cleanser for sensitive skin.
