Time to celebrate the festival of colours but not before we get your post-Holi skin and haircare concerns resolved!
A chilled glass of flavoured milk, relentless dancing to Bollywood songs on loop and different shades of colour in the air- there’s so much to love about Holi. And what better way to celebrate it than the traditional way with gulal and splashes of colours. Having said that, we often forget to take care of our skin and hair during this time amidst all the gaiety. The colours do take a toll on your skin and hair, leaving it dry and dehydrated after the long hours of festivities coupled with exposure to the sun. Sobiya Moghul, Content Lead at Amazon Beauty shares some Holi tips and tricks to help retain your glowing skin and luscious hair.
Body Oil: A mandatory step of the post-Holi skincare regimen is usin g body oil. It is rich in antioxidants and massaging a generous amount onto your skin will help nourish the skin from within, while getting rid of the colour gently and naturally.
Body Scrub: The most important self-care step post-Holi is– ‘exfoliating’. After cleansing your skin completely, it is imperative to exfoliate your body using a gentle scrub to get rid of all the stubborn colour. Wash it off gently with lukewarm water.
Face Pack: Excessive colour can cause breakouts and even dull your skin. A herbal face pack will help soothe the skin while healing it. Regularly using a face pack will help your skin slowly regain its glow.
Moisturizer: After taking a warm shower, don’t forget to moisturize your skin. The skin tends to get dry after excessive exposure to the sun and colours, followed by rigorous exfoliation. The right moisturizer will keep your skin smooth and hydrated.
Lip Balms: Like your skin, your lips also need some post-Holi care. Your lips can get chapped and gently rubbing a lip balm into your lips not only helps you get rid of the colours, but it also acts as a protective barrier and keeps them nourished.
Clarifying shampoo: To get rid of those colours from your tresses, a clarifying shampoo is the best one to fall back on. Thoroughly rinse your hair and apply a conditioner. Keep it for a few seconds and rinse it off. If you have already applied coconut oil prior to the day of Holi, your hair would easily get rid of the colours.
Now that you have got your post-Holi haircare and skincare hacks in place, it’s time to celebrate the festival of colours with joy! On that note, Hair & Beauty News team wishes you a Happy and a safe Holi!
