For Skin Care:
Let you skin be smeared in the colours of Holi and let these products take care of it.
Go as natural as possible as the colors already have chemicals. First apply a premium quality sunblock as holi parties are always under the sun and detaining should be the last thing on your mind while worrying about your skin as we know that skin takes longer to detain. You can use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+. It is dermatologically tested so don’t hold back while applying it, be generous.
After applying a sunblock, your skin will become dry. Sunblock will protect you from the sun but you still need protection from the harmful chemicals of the colours. Apply a heavy moisturizer on your skin so the colour can come off easily as soon as you are done with your Holi shenanigans. You can use Vitamin E Moisture-Protect Emulsion SPF 30 by the Body Shop.
Don’t you love your lashes? Then show them the equal care and protection. Apply Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to save them from falling off.
Skin wipes are your perfect rescue when your skin feels a sudden irritation. Wipe the colours gently of your skin with Kara Skin Care Wipes.
Other than these, always keep yourself hydrated by drinking ample amount of water. Have a happy and safe Holi!
