Holi is a fun festival! If you are a holi lover there would be many things about this festival that you simply love. From delicious sweets to holi special offers, there’s so much to love about the festival. But the not so loving part about this festival is removing holi strains, dry skin, damaged hair and of course harsh chemicals. The holi colors have harmful and dangerous ingredients like mercury sulfide in red, aluminum bromide in silver, the lead oxide in black color and so on.
These toxic substances not only rubbed on the skin but also enter in your body via nostrils and mouth. Yes, this is dangerous but thankfully it can be prevented. There are some tips that allow you to enjoy holi without worsening the skin. This post is for the holi lovers! Just read these tips, remember and apply.
#1 Apply generous amount of oil
The oldest yet effective method of removing holi strains is “oil”. Apply a generous amount of oil on your body, nails, and feet that act as a protective layer. A proper oil massage will prevent the color & rays from seeping into the skin. For better results, apply sesame oil to remove color from your skin.
#2. Don’t forget the sunscreen with SPF 20
For most people, on holi, it's the colors that are most dangerous. Right? Well, wrong! What about the constant exposure to the sun during holi? It can cause tan, dullness and dry skin. So sun-skin cream is a must. Apply sunscreen with 20 SPF minutes before playing holi. The sunscreen can protect the skin from pigmentation, heat, and dryness.
#3. Cover the head with stylish turban
No matter what you apply on to the hair, the holi colors will leave them dry and fizzy. So the best way is to cover them with a turban. Just like Shabana Azmi did last year in the holi party. A turban is the best way to protect the hair from harsh chemical colors. The added benefit is that turban looks really cool and stylish.
#4. Use besan to avoid rashes and skin irritation
One of the toughest task post-holi celebrations is removing holi strains. Holi strains can be a real challenge to remove. The strains can be a real pain if you try using harsh soaps or body wash on them. They end up leaving the skin dry, irritating and full of rashes. So rely on the natural substances like besan to remove the strains.
#5. Wear sunglasses to protect the eyes
It’s important to protect your eyes before leaving home to play holi. Our eyes are highly sensitive and need to be layered properly. So pick your sunglasses and remove your contact lenses before venturing outdoors. If by mistake color enters the eyes rinse them with cold water.
#6. Stay hydrated
A hydrated body is an all-time necessity. However, the need of hydration is more in changing climatic conditions. The festival of holi comes during changing climatic conditions. So it is important to stay hydrated by drinking water. Moreover the water help to not immerse the chemical into the skin and get rid of excessive toxins.
#7. Nail Paints
Your nails can easily get strained while playing holi. Plus, no oil or lotion can act as its shield to protect. So the best way is to paint your nails with a dark nail color. Just remove the nail paint after you finish playing holi with colors. That’s it, your nails are prevented from getting stained.
#8. Apply foundation on the skin
It’s always good to layer your skin properly before heading for a holi party. This is even more important if you have a dry skin. Use foundation to give an extra protection to your skin. A coating of the foundation is probably what your skin needs from harsh holi colors.
Holi is a festival of fun and celebration. Just follow these simple tips and make this holi really safe and happy for you. So follow these tips and tricks and enjoy the festival of colors without worrying about the skin. Have a happy holi.
