Summers in India are anyway unforgiving. Throw in a ton of colours on top of it and you’ll have ruined your skin for the next two months. Holi colours, no matter how organic they may be, are extremely abrasive and damage more than just the top of your epidermis. So here are some tips that you can use to get rid of the colours without damaging your skin.
SKINCARE BEFORE HOLI- CLEANSE
Deep clean your skin before applying anything on your face. Clear all your pores and impurities with . Products which constitutes Pure Arabica coffee and white water-lily helps in refreshing the skin and also reduces cellulite. Go for caffeine based cleansers for skin rejuvenation.
SKINCARE BEFORE HOLI- MOISTURISE
Holi colours will deplete your skin of any moisture that it has and will make it dry. Hydration is inevitably recommended in such case. Try the Olive oil or Vitamin E and Argan Oil for that extra hydration needed on Holi. These products should be Paraben free so it won’t clog your pores. Top it off with Sunscreen with SPF over 50+ to protect your skin from harsh sun exposure and damage.
SKINCARE AFTER HOLI- CLEANSE
Primarily clean your face with a lot of water and wash off as much colour as you can. Take a dollop of Face Scrub and gently start scrubbing your face with it. Scrub for at least 4-5 minutes in circular motions to get rid of all the colour and wash it off. Follow up with the face wash. For the body go for body scrub with bigger granules, and scrub out all the remaining colour.
SKINCARE AFTER HOLI- SOOTHING FACE MASK
