Almond oil has a lot of benefits to your complexion. Holi skincare calls, for applying almond oil to your whole body first. Vitamin E is abundant in almond oil. It nourishes the skin and protects it from colours by acting as a barrier between the skin and the pigments. Aside from that, it keeps the colours from adhering to the body.

3. Always remember Sunscreen.

Holi celebration makes us forget about everything else, we forget about the scorching sun above us and the skin exposure we are giving to it. Holi skincare tips begin with a good amount of sunscreen applied to your skin. The likelihood of tanning increases as a result of continuous exposure to the sun. Apply a waterproof sunscreen moisturiser to your skin to prevent tanning. It can protect your skin to a large extent, and you don’t have to worry about tan lines or anything.

4.Moisturize your Hair

Don’t shampoo your hair before a day to Holi as you don’t want to lose the natural oils. All you have to do now is add a layer of coconut oil to your hair and roots to prevent it from drying out and becoming frizzy. Because the direct application of Holi colours can affect your hair, also you can cover your hair with a bandanna or cap. The scalp and hair will be protected by covering the head and it also looks stylish.

5. Protect your Nails

Holi skincare for your nails and the skin cover your nails are very important. A few days before Holi, massage your nails with almond oil and ghee which can help a lot. Before Holi cover them with a dark nail-paint. Apply two coats of nail polish to each nail. Apply a second coat of shiner or invisible nail polish to seal in your colour.

Protect your nails from the inside portion at the top as well if you have long nails. After your nail paint has completely dried, rub them with another squeeze of oil or petroleum gel.

6. Moisturize your Lips

We often neglect the small skincare routines during Holi. Instead of using normal lip balms, make sure you use petroleum jelly on your lips because it has a thicker texture and will last longer and protect your skin from Holi colours. You should also use petroleum jelly on your throat, back of your ears, and between your fingers.

7. Aftercare

Aftercare includes using a good shampoo and face wash, so your skin and scalp are not left dry and rough. Holi haircare says that to remove all the colours and clean the scalp from the chemicals in your hair, you must shampoo it properly. After playing Holi, wash your face with a nice moisturising face wash.

The colours can be drying and using soap, or a tough face wash will aggravate the skin even more. So, choose a face wash that is both moisturising and appropriate for your skin type.

So, enjoy your Holi without being worried about your hair and skin with these tips.

Wishing you a happy and safe Holi!
