Holi Skin CareTips: All geared up for Holi? There is no fun compared to the absolute fun of playing Holi with friends and family! Obviously, since this is the day we get to be children again, officially ;)Fun, frolic and colors bring with them the side effect of chemicals and resistant colors that don’t go for days !! I remember seeing loads of green and red ears during school times,and even now Β πŸ˜› Β To save you from such un-Holi embarrassment, I am listing down some super simple,at home things that you can do,to enjoy holi without the worry of harsh chemicals damaging your hair and skin. Simply follow this checklist and you will be good to go! These pre and post holi care tips are the best How to Remove Holi Color From Face.

#1 Apply Nail Polish on your Nails :

Girls go for the darkest color nail polish you have. Apply a clear base coat. Let it dry completely, then apply the coat of dark nail polish. Once this has dried off. Finish off with a transparent coat of nail polish. Your nails will be protected from 99% of the colors this way. I suggest you either cut your nails short or apply a transparent coat-Behind your nail to protect that from colors.

Guys can simply apply three coats of transparent nail paint while holding a Ninja Turtle or GI Joe or something πŸ˜› Look away if it bothers you so much πŸ˜‰

#2 Two-Step Oil Your Hair :

Ideally, you should apply mustard oil since it is the thickest. But if you cannot stand the smell of it, apply any oil of choice, today night itself. Tomorrow morning, like 15 minutes before you go out to play holi, slather on any hair serum. This will give you double protection! Remember to tie your hair in a bun, that ways the least of your hair is exposed to colors and chemicals.

#3 Moisturize Your Skin :

Dry skin is more susceptible to getting damaged. Tonight just slather on your favorite body lotion before going to bed. Tomorrow morning, apply coconut oil to all exposed parts of the body maximum 10 minutes before going out to play. You don’t want the oil to be absorbed. Bdw, the space between fingers and toes and they are behind the ears is most neglected. Don’t forget these places!

#4 Don’t Forget SPF

Yep , over and above all the coconut oil you have put on the body and face, you MUST slather on water-resistant sunscreen. That will protect your skin from sun damage.

#5 Wear Sunglasses

Actually, this is the day when I wish I purchase sunglasses from the roadside πŸ˜‰ Keep your eyes covered, wear a pair of sunglasses (preferably disposable). Wearing contact lenses is a strict no no. Keep your eyes covered and protected πŸ™‚

#6 Avoid Wearing Synthetic Clothes / Denim

The last thing you want is to wear color-drenched clothes to stick to your body. Wear cotton. It’s comfortable and a much better option.

#7 Play Dry Holi

We all know dry colors are equally fun. Go for herbal colors, you will be more carefree πŸ˜‰ I know, I know…not everybody likes to play holi this way. But you can’t blame a girl for trying πŸ˜‰

#8 Stand Under Running Water

Before you start the ritual of removing the many layers of colors, consider standing under a spray of clean water for 5-6 minutes. That will wash off most of the runny color. You can save your home from getting dirty this way πŸ™‚

#9 Please Skip Scrubs

I really don’t know why people are going around advocating scrubbing your skin before or after playing with colors. Your skin has already suffered an onslaught of chemicals. Just use mild soap to cleanse your skin. Ditto with a mild shampoo and conditioner. The last thing you want to do is scrub them in while removing them. Strict no scrubs till 2 days after Holi. I am serious.

# 10 Try this Home Made Ubtan

Mix 1 tablespoon of maida with turmeric powder. Add aloe vera juice /rose water if you have access. Apply this paste on your face, neck, hands, and feet. Wash it off with milk. You will see the colors magically vanish away πŸ™‚
