Applying organic essential oils on your skin helps in restoring the natural texture of the skin and hair. It also helps in treating acne and skin allegies, which otherwise may get worse with colours.
Rubbing ice cubes on face for 10-15 minutes before stepping out helps in closing the pores of your skin. And, this in turn, stops the chemicals from entering into your skin while playing with colours.
Using a sunscreen is always good whenever we are out as it helps in keeping the moisture content of the skin intact and prevents tanning. And using it while playing Holi helps in the same way.
Drenching the nails in olive oil prevents soaking of any colour. Along with it, using a thick coat of nail paint on the nails prevents the enamel from damage.
Wearing a loose ensemble in light colours like white-hues balances the vibrant festival mood. And covering the body as much possible prevents any direct contact with the chemicals in the colours.
While applying hair oil is best for protecting hair but the best is to cover your head with a scarf or cap during the celebrations. It reduces the chances of hair from being cracked.
Staying in wet clothes leads to rashes and chemicals from the colours can also seep inside the skin, leading to allergies and irritation. Thus, it's always safer to play water Holi at the end.
Staying hydrated helps in a lot of ways. And, the same principle is applied during Holi party, which helps in keeping you energised and prevents acne.
