                   Holi is the festival of color and joy. It is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna. People throw colors at each other and enjoy this spring festival.

                    But mostly nowadays these colors are synthetic or harmful chemicals are added to them to add vibrancy. This may cause skin irritation, rashes, allergy etc. So I have come up with a few points to remember before exposing yourself to these colors.

Skin Protection:-

1. Use a sunscreen lotion with high Sun Protective Factor. Apply all over face, neck, arms and all other exposed parts.

2. Next apply a few drops of baby oil or almond oil over your entire face, neck, arms and other exposed parts.

3. On your lips use a lip balm with SPF and top it with a neutral color lippie.

4. Apply kajal on your eyes to enhance and shape them. But the kajal should be waterproof and smudge free.

5. Line your eyes with a waterproof eyeliner and use waterproof mascara as well.

6. Also protect your brows by coating them with a transparent/waterproof mascara after grooming them.

Hair Protection:-

7. Apply henna a day or 2 before Holi to protect hair from color.

8. Apply coconut/almond oil on hair just to coat hair so there is not much damage.

9. Tie up your hair and don't even think of keeping it open.

Nail Protection:-

10. Apply a neutral color on your tips and toes. If you have long nails then coat the underside of the nails with a transparent nail polish.

                   Afterwards, when you return home, use a moisturising shower gel to clean your skin, a good shampoo will clean your hair. Also use a nail polish remover to take off nail polish from your nails and also from the underside of your nails. Clean properly in between your fingers, toes and behind the ears. Be careful not to rub too much while cleaning.
