Make Your Skin Holi-Ready With These 8 Tips!

Holi is almost here! And we are all gearing up for the festival of colors! So, if you are thinking of playing with colors, then there is a lot that you will need to do before you get into the spirit of Holi.

While playing Holi, you will have to face the scorching heat of the sun for a long time. It may lead to tanning, blemishes, dark spots, and irritated skin. Unfortunately, we often forget to prepare our skin for the festival amidst the excitement.

Hence, we have created a list of eight essential tips (and a few more) to protect you from nasty skin woes that may occur due to too much sun exposure. So let's make the festival of colors even more colorful!

Pre-Holi Skin Care Tips

Rub ice cubes.

Rubbing ice cubes on your face before playing Holi will have a magical effect on your skin. It closes the pores and prevents the colors from penetrating deep into the skin, causing breakouts. Gently rub the ice cubes for 10-15 minutes before the celebrations begin.

Tip: Do not apply ice cubes directly to the face. Instead, you can wrap them in a soft cloth and gently massage the face.

Sunscreen is a must!

Wearing sunscreen with SPF 50+ is a must. Holi is played outside, and you may have to face the scorching heat of the sun. It may lead to blemishes and sunburn. Therefore, we recommend applying a generous amount of sunscreen before stepping out.

Apply a rich moisturizer.

A moisturizer has a miraculous effect on your skin. It replenishes moisture and keeps your skin hydrated while closing the pores. It creates a barricade between your skin and colors, guarding against damage caused by the chemicals used in the Holi colors. It is best to use organic colors.

Oil your skin.

Yes, you read that right! Who said you could only oil your hair? It's a good idea to oil up your skin, especially before playing Holi. The oil acts as a natural sealant and helps in locking moisture. Therefore, you can apply oil to your face after applying the moisturizer for extra protection. And this way, your skin will be all ready to play Holi!

Paint your nails, yes!

In addition to your skin, it is also essential to protect your delicate cuticles from harmful colors. Applying a thick coat of nail paint on your enamel will add a layer of protection from the Holi colors.

Cover your body.

Wear comfortable and full-length clothes to protect your skin from color damage. Perhaps, you should wear cotton clothes as they allow your skin to breathe and not cause rashes and irritation.

Apply petroleum jelly on your lips.

Use petroleum jelly or apply chapstick to protect your lips from the harmful chemicals present in the Holi colors.

Choose the right colors.

Colors are essential elements of Holi. Therefore, it is crucial to stock up on organic colors that are safe, easy to remove, and protect you against irritation and allergies. If you haven't switched to natural, it's time to do so!

With Holi celebrations happening soon, we thought it would be a great idea to share some tips on preparing your skin ready for the festival. We hope you enjoyed reading this post. This Holi, play safe perfect natural skin with effective skin care products!
