Holi Pre and Post Skincare Tips

Holi is a vibrant and fun-filled festival celebrated all over India. It is a time when people come together to play with colors, dance, and indulge in delicious food. However, all the fun and excitement can take a toll on your skin. The harsh chemicals and colors used during Holi can cause damage, leaving your skin dry, itchy, and dull. Here are some skincare tips to follow before and after Holi to protect your skin.

Before Holi:

  1. Use a good sunscreen: Apply a good sunscreen to your face and exposed areas of your skin. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and make sure to apply it for at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun.

  2. Wear protective clothing: Cover up as much as possible by wearing full-sleeved clothes. This will not only protect your skin from the colors but also from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

  3. Use organic colors: Try to use organic colors as much as possible, as these are less harsh on the skin and do not contain harmful chemicals. You can even make your natural colors using ingredients like turmeric, beetroot, and henna.

After Holi:

  1. Cleanse your skin: After playing Holi, make sure to wash your skin thoroughly with a mild cleanser. Avoid using soap, as it can further dry out your skin. Use lukewarm water to rinse your skin, and be gentle while cleansing.

  2. Moisturize your skin: Once you have washed off the colors, apply a good moisturizer to your skin. This will help to hydrate your skin and prevent it from becoming dry and itchy. You can use any moisturizer that suits your skin type.

  3. Take care of your hair: The colors used during Holi can also damage your hair. Apply oil to your hair before playing Holi, and wear a scarf or hat to protect your hair from the colors. After playing Holi, wash your hair thoroughly with a mild shampoo and conditioner.

  4. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and other fluids to stay hydrated. This will not only help to keep your skin hydrated but also prevent dehydration and heat stroke.

  5. Be gentle with your skin: Avoid rubbing your skin too hard when trying to remove the colors. This can cause further damage to your skin. Instead, be gentle and use a soft cloth to wipe off the colors.

Following these skin care tips before and after Holi can help protect your skin from damage caused by the colors. These tips will also help to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Have a safe and happy Holi. Incase you are experiencing any skin irritation post holi, feel free to meet our dermatologist or call: +91-6292009909.
