Some Easy And Effective Tips To Protect Your Skin And Hair From Harmful Chemicals Of Holi Colours
This article helps you with how to protect skin and hair from Holi colours. We bring you here expert beauty advice on complete pre and post Holi care for your body, skin, hair and much more.
1. Let your hair down
There is no way to prevent your hair from getting wet or coloured in this frenzy. So, shampoo and condition them well on the day of the festival. Then massage your hair well with oil and tie them up in a bun. This will ensure that the scalp and hair do not absorb colours too easily. In case you have short hair, apply hair gel. Letting your hair down really helps to protect your hair and skin on Holi.
2. Love your body
Start the day by applying olive or coconut oil to your body. Also, apply a thick layer of sunscreen on your face and body. This simple one-step tip is your go-to way, to protect your hair and skin this Holi.
3. Put on some makeup
Make special efforts to use waterproof makeup so that it stays until you finish celebrating. Apply a layer of a waterproof base on your face and neck to ensure that the colours do not stick to the skin. For your lips, slather on a lip guard and a good quality long stay lipstick. If you do not like dark shades, go for a natural shade kiss-proof lip colour.
4. Nail the celebrations
Drench your cuticles in olive oil so your nails do not soak up any colour. Then, use a thick coat of nail paint on the nails and put Vaseline under the nail edges.
5. Stay hydrated
This is a very effective way to curb the side effects of playing Holi and its colours. While playing Holi and being out of your house for the whole, you might forget to drink water, and as a result, your body becomes dehydrated, and skin becomes water deficient. This leads to higher possibilities of getting bad tans and your energy level might also get down.
6. Don’t rub
On Holi, if a colour is applied by rubbing, then use a face wash instead of soap to remove it. But, do remember to remove the colour gently from the skin. Rubbing and then washing can harm your skin.
