Due to chemical used in artificial or synthetic colour one can face allergic reactions, dryness, itching, redness, rashes and other skin related problem. Try to avoid chemical-based colours and use herbal and natural colours while playing. Here are some tips to skin and hair care, pre and post Holi-

Skin Pre-Care(Before Playing Holi):

Apply a shield of almond or coconut oil and leave it for 10-15 mins to get absorb in the skin, then again apply a second coat of oil and let it absorb by the skin. Glycerin with lemon juice can also be used as a protective shield. It acts as waterproof protection layer. This will protect skin from absorbing harmful and synthetic colours and chemicals. It will also help skin to preserve its natural moisture. Apply a thick layer of sunblock with atleast SPF 30 before exposing skin in sun. A waterproof sunblock can easily protect skin from harmful sun rays (UV rays) and chemical absorption which are very dangerous to skin. Try to wear clothes which cover most of the body and which are easy to dry. To prevent staining on nails, apply a coat of nail paint. Petroleum Jelly can be used in place of nail enamel. To protect lips, apply lip balm or lipstick on lips.

Hair Pre-Care (Before Playing Holi):

Oiling is extremely important, do oiling of hair to prevent it from the damage caused by artificial colours and its harmful chemicals. To oil scalp and hair one can use olive oil, coconut oil, gooseberry oil, caster oil etc. One can use mixture of rosemary oil and jojoba oil to prevent submerging of colour to hair and scalp. Do a proper oil application before playing from colours and cover hair with bandana.

Hair Post-Care(After Holi Played):

Lukewarm water is best to rinse off the colour from hair. Use mild shampoo for cleansing and try to use natural conditioner like egg or yoghurt to condition hair.

Skin Post-Care(After Holi Played):

Take ample amount of cleansing milk or cleansing lotion or baby lotion on cotton and apply all over the skin. Gently massage and then wipe off with the cotton damped with lukewarm water. Do this twice to clean face properly. Use body wash to clean exposed skin and avoid using soap, exfoliate skin using soft loofah. After bath apply a good moisturiser to keep your skin moisturise. Olive oil can be used in place of moisturiser.

Do not use chemical and artificial colours for playing. Play a safe Holi with natural and herbal colours. Happy Holi...enjoy...
