Holi, the festival of colors, vibrance and joy, is right around the corner. Traditionally played with natural colors made using flowers and herbs, today, unfortunately Holi is played with chemically dyed colors, bringing allergic skin reactions, acne breakouts, dry, frizzy hair and skin that desperately needs some glow with it.
Dr. Blossom Kochhar says “I would love to play Holi with homemade colors or organic colors which do not harm your skin and hair. I have handpicked some products to protect your skin and hair as you bring out the child in you while playing Holi.”
Here are a few tips to get you ready for playing with colors on Holi:
Guard your skin by using sunscreen, oil and other skincare products that suit you.
Apply Almond Oil on your body, lips, and face. This will protect them from dryness and will help in getting the Holi colors off easily.
Apply a coat of transparent nail polish or petroleum jelly or Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Cold Cream to avoid nails from getting affected.
Wear natural cotton or breathable clothes while playing Holi as they do not cause any rash when in contact with color and water.
Preferably wear a pair of sunglasses while playing Holi. This will not only save your eyes from any harsh colors but also protect you from the sun.
Oil your hair from the scalp to the tip of the hair the night before. Give your scalp a gentle massage before you sleep and repeat the process in the morning. Do not leave your hair open. Tie it into a ponytail or a bun and cover your head with a scarf.
Post Holi Skin Care:
Do not scrub the color off with soap. Use a cream-based cleanser or you can even use oil for removing the colors, and then go for a bath. Apply a lot of moisturizing cream to keep the skin hydrated.
