post-holi skin tips
It is vital to take care of your skin post Holi celebrations. Use mild cleanser, face wash and body wash thoroughly to cleanse your hair, face and body, ensuring to get rid yourself of colors in order to avoid acne, rashes and allergies post the Holi celebrations. Use good cleansing cream and oil that blends and works effectively on removing the leftovers of colors and harsh chemicals with minimum friction. Use a gentle clarifying shampoo to rinse color from hair. After shampooing, don’t forget to apply conditioner, do use a natural hair serum formulated by mixing base and essential oils like lavender or bergamot to relax your hair strands and reduce frizzy, dry and damaged hairs.
Apply effective, nourishing body lotions and good face moisturizer that matches well with your skin type. This will not only hydrate but also nourish and soothe your skin, resulting soft and supple as the skin tends to become dry due to excess colors and sun exposures. You can use mild steroids and antibiotic based creams if allergy happened due to harsh colors for a week. Also mix your moisturizer with a few drops of naturally extracted essential oils for a luxurious, lingering fragrance afterwards. Lastly you can use aloe vera gel as a sleeping mask before going to bed.
Use a good and hydrating sunscreen which is best suited with your skin type. Apply generous amounts of sun protection cream on the face, neck, hands and the body. Don’t forget to reapply every 2 to 3 hours. Use long sleeved cotton clothes to cover most of your skin and hats to protect your skin.
Don’t forget to hydrate your body by drinking a lot of water throughout the day. Hydrate yourself with enough water, fruit juices and fruits with high water contents. Juices and fruits help keep you hydrated and give your skin a healthy glow from the inside. Keep yourself hydrated all the time.
These simple and easy steps will ensure a clean and glowing skin the next morning and will also protect your skin from harmful chemicals. Have a Happy and safe Holi!
