Top Skin Care Tips for Holi that you need to know:

Come Holi and there is an excessive use of colors and chemicals that can harm your skin. Although most of the Holi parties have been promoting the use of organic colors, there might be instances when things might slip out of your control and there might be a use of chemicals that can harm your skin. Here are a few skin care tips for Holi that would help you protect your skin.

Pre-Celebration Tips:

Mustard Oil:

Mustard Oil

Apply mustard oil generously all over your body in general and the exposed body parts in specific. Viscosity of the oil naturally lets the color slip away without getting onto the skin. Let the skin absorb the oil for 20-30 minutes before you venture out to join the Holi party. Also, make sure you follow up with a waterproof sunscreen lotion to further protect your skin.

Nail Polish:
