How To Get Rid Of Holi Color On Face
Holi, the festival of colors is an amazing festival, and we keep talking about indulging in pop of colors in fashion, and fashion is life, isn’t it? So stop staying indoors from this year on and play the festival with total glee, using our tips on how to get rid of holi colors on face, neck and other body parts. Read on PYTs and share this post on how to remove holi colours, with family and friends who stay away from the colorful affair and splashes out there.
1. Wash And Rinse With Cold Water
The biggest mistake made is to use warm or hot water when bathing after a game of colors. Stop doing that. Before you indulge in the game, we would want you to generously apply dollops of cold cream to your skin and then wait for an hour. You could also use coconut oil and wait too. What this would do is to form a protective layer on the skin from the color thrown onto you. Once the game of colors is over and done with, use cold water and not hot water to wash off. Hot water solidifies the intensity of the color, whereas cold water eases the intensity.
2. Besan Pack For The Skin
We would want you to mix a cup of besan with half a cup of curd and a tablespoon of essential oil. Make a paste of the same and apply it generously over your skin. Wait for ten minutes before gently rinsing off the pack, using a facewash and water. Once the cleansing is done, you could further hydrate the skin with cold coconut oil applied to the washed skin. Wait for another ten minutes for the oil to soak into the colored regions, before washing it off. For the final rinse, mix half a cup of lemon juice to half a cup of rosewater and rub the skin with it. Wash off finally with cold water.

3. Amchur Powder To The Rescue
Half a cup of amchur powder should be mixed with water and applied as a pack to the face and the neck. This is for OILY SKIN TYPES only. Wait for half an hour and then wash it off in circular motions. Excess use of amchur powder can lead to dehydration of the skin, which if it happens you can follow the coconut oil massage an hour later to restore the hydration levels and balance the skin texture too.
4. Use Fuller’s Earth
Fuller’s earth or multani mitti is an amazing way to remove colors from the skin. Half a cup of multani mitti soaked for an hour with four tablespoons of curd and applied on the face and the neck can help you remove the stubborn hues and shades. Rub of gently with cold water when the pack dries off. This is a pack for very OILY SKIN to COMBINATION SKIN TYPES only.
