The festival of colors is here… Holi is here… This festival marks the end of winter and start of summer… It is celebrated as the victory of Devine over evil… Holi is celebrated by applying colors or rather playing with colors with family and friends…
As much as we enjoy playing Holi, we suffer a bit, to get skin and hair cleaned post that. So, I have this quick post on how to take care of hair and skin this Holi season…
🎆 Oil your hair 15-20 minutes prior to Holi celebration. It keeps your scalp hydrated and washing hair would be easy. Plus, it won’t make your hair dry post wash.
🎆 Apply moisturizer with SPF content all over the body. Moisturizer avoids extra dryness due to chemicals in colors and SPF avoids tanning.
🎆 Wear cotton clothes. Denims will be heavy and other clothes will be sticky once you get wet by colored water.
🎆 It’s advisable to wear full sleeve shirts. The more area you cover, the more protection for your skin from harsh chemicals.
🎆 Avoid wearing lenses and spectacles. If you can’t manage without spectacles… Be extra cautious. Those surprise attacks of colors might damage the glasses.
🎆 Carry alovera gel if you are allergic to colors. Alovera soothes the itchiness.
🎆 Instead of using chemicals to wash colors, use alovera or glycerin based soaps.
🎆 Don’t forget to apply generous quantity of body lotion post bath.
So this was about self care. Now couple of tips to be a good soul.
💖 Do not apply colors to animals. They don’t enjoy that. They lick the colors in order to clean themselves. They end up consuming lot of chemicals in this process. Please take care of our animal buddies.
💖 Avoid wasting water. I know it’s fun to throw colored water but please think of those people who are dying due to scarcity of water. Enjoy a dry Holi.
I hope these tips will be useful for you… Enjoy ‘the festival of love ‘to the fullest. Spread colors…
May your life be filled with all the beautiful colors…
Happy Holi… 😇
