Skin Care Tips for Holi

Are you gearing up for holi? Got your water guns and colours ready? What about your skin care regimen§? Holi can do quite a number on your skin, making getting rid of the colour a mammoth task. But don’t let that dissuade you from celebrating Holi with zeal.

Just follow are skin care tips to protect and salvage your skin.

Protect Your Skin with Oil

Apply coconut oil or olive oil all over your face and body. This will help to keep the colours from staining your skin or becoming stubborn to wash off. Yes, applying oil means you will feel greasy when the colours come in contact with your skin, but on the bright side, washing the colours off in the shower will be much easier.

Avoid Scrubbing

As much as scrubbing your skin vigorously with a scrub or loofah seems like a good idea, avoid doing this. Your skin is already sensitive after coming in contact with all the chemicals from the colours. So treat it gently. Use a mild body wash or soap to gently wash away the colours. For your face, use a wet wipe to wipe away the colours and then cleanse with a mild cleanser.
