Tips to protect your skin and hair:
1. Oil your skin:
Applying a thick coat of oil on your skin and hair is a good way to do this.
Lather yourself in oil an hour before stepping out. The oil acts as a protective layer and makes it easier for the color to come off later. Don’t miss out on places like behind your ear, between finger wedges, and near your fingernails, if required you can apply nail polish also.
Apply sunscreen before playing holi as it is really easy to get tanned while playing outdoors.
3. Soothing lotions:
Few days before holi, Apply moisturizer for dry skin, As dry skin is sensitive to color and can create skin allergies and rashes.
4. Petroleum Jelly:
Apply a generous layer of petroleum jelly like Vaseline on delicate body parts like lips, ears and nails
5. Sun Exposure:
The lesser your skin is exposed; the better it is for you. Wear full-sleeved and full-length clothing to give your skin maximum protection from colors. While picking your Holi ensemble, choose breezy cotton clothes that completely protect your skin from the colors.
6. Hair Care:
Give yourself a thorough head massage with coconut or olive oil to prevent damage not only from the harsh colors but heat and dirt as well. This prevents the color from settling on your scalp.
After playing – Rinse your hair with plenty of water to wash away the dry colors and tiny particles of mica.
