Pre and Post-Holi Skin Care Tips: Protect Your Skin this Holi

The splash of colours and the fun and frolic of Holi is here! Holi is the perfect fun time to enjoy with friends, family, or colleagues. What comes with this colorful festival is the colours that will take away your face glow with the chemicals they contain. The vibrant, beautiful colours hide a cruel face. These chemicals can result in skin irritations, rashes, and extreme dryness, but we will not let these take a toll on your skin’s health, nor are we going to be the party pooper. 

We have a checklist to help you prepare your skin for the Holi and some tips to take care of the skin after the party. The after-party changes here totally! Let’s get a Holi checklist for healthy and radiant skin and remember to put your Sunscreen Lotion on the list. Yes, you heard it right, and let’s dive deep into this:

Pre-Holi skincare tips

Some simple skincare products, and voila, here you are Holi ready!

1. Nourish your skin:

Hydrate well before going to the Holi party. Nourishing it doesn’t mean you have to make it look oily or greasy. Cleanse your face with a mild cleanser that has moisturizing properties to remove impurities and nourish the skin. Use a hydrating moisturizer to create a protective barrier. Keep it light aloe vera moisturiser that covers the pores and forms a protective barrier between skin and colours.

2. Vitamin C sun protection:

Outdoors call for sun protection, so you need to follow the two-finger rule even while applying sunscreen for Holi. Holi is all about spending prolonged hours outdoors, and this is where you need your knight in armour. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with vitamin C would also shield the skin from environmental aggressors. Apply generously on your face, neck, arms, and feet.

3. Massage your hair:

Hair is also susceptible to probable colour damage. Hair oil or creams create a barrier between direct contact of colour and hair, making washing off of colour easy. Apply a non-sticky oil or hair cream and tie a low bun. This will protect your hair from colour and tangle and keep you stylish. Oiling doesn’t have to be greasy hair. 

4. Wear full-sleeved clothes:

A classic white full-sleeve suit accessorized with jhumkas, juttis, teamed up with a low bun or braid, not only looks fantastic on Holi but also protects you from colours. This is a classy look, and the full-sleeved clothes and bottoms do not allow direct contact of colours with skin. Wear comfortable, breathable clothes and swipe a thick line of your favorite black Kajal.

Post-Holi skincare tips

While you have taken precautions to protect your skin from colour damage, you can’t prevent the effect. Let’s see some tips to take off the colours and reverse the damage quickly:

1. Cleansing and exfoliating:

Use a mild cleanser to take off the colour. Use double cleansing to clean the skin gently. Avoid harsh soaps and vigorous scrubbing, as these can further irritate and damage the skin. A gentle homemade ubtan or ubtan cleanser works wonders to cleanse the skin while nourishing it.

2. Avoid hot water:

The Holi colours strip away the skin’s natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. A hot water shower to wash off the colours can worsen the situation. Avoid the temptation and use lukewarm water instead to clean the skin. 

3. Moisturise:

Once the skin is cleansed, apply the best sunscreen lotion on the damp skin of your body. Wet skin increases the absorption of the moisturizer, nourishing the skin deeply. You can choose a sunscreen moisturizer or use Vitamin C with Sunscreen to rejuvenate and protect the skin.  

4. Replenish with a face mask:

Take a vitamin C or aloe vera mask to calm your skin and reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation. A tomato face mask can help in lowering suntan and sun damage. Choose the concern you want to address and pick your face mask accordingly. Once you have applied and removed the mask, moisturize and apply vitamin C sun protection to finish the care regimen. 

Here’s to the good times, celebrations, and memories to cherish lifelong. Enjoy the festival of colours and togetherness, keeping skin problems at bay. Remember to apply the best sunscreen lotion to protect your skin from sun exposure while playing Holi. Enjoy the festival without compromising on your skin’s health. Prevention is critical, so safeguard your skin before diving into the colorful revelry. Go for skincare products with natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin and support your journey towards healthy and radiant skin.
