Pre and Post Holi Skin & Hair Care

Happy Holi to all my readers! Wish you a very colourful and bright life ahead!

This festival of colours is very dear to our heart. But is it really dear to our ski and hair? I really don’t think so. The colours that are used today are extremely harmful and creates a lot of irritation to us. In this blog I am going to jot down some points about how to take care of yourself before and after Holi.


1. COCONUT OIL- For normal and dry skin apply coconut oil generously on all of your exposed areas including your hair. This will help create a barrier between the colour and your skin. But I really don’t recommend this for oily, acne prone or sensitive skin. Although, people with all types of hair can go for this.

2. TALCUM POWDER- This one’s my favourite. If you have a problematic skin like me or even oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin; this one’s best for you- apply a generous amount of talcum powder on the exposed parts of your body. This will create a layer between the colours and your skin.

3. FOUNDATION- I don’t know if it will work for you all but because I have a very sensitive skin I trust my foundation more than anything. So I apply a generous amount of it and then apply talcum powder before playing Holi. It helps!


1. DRY TOWEL- First most use a dry towel to remove all the extra colours on your skin and hair rigorously.

2. COCONUT OIL- Yes. Coconut oil once again. For normal to dry skin, apply a generous amount of it and then wipe it off along with the colours with the help of dry cotton balls.

3. CLEANSER- Those who have oily, combination, sensitive or acne prone skin can try their regular cleanser to wipe the colours off. Apply a generous amount and then use cotton balls to wipe it off.

4. WATER- Now when it comes to hair, first of all rinse your hair with water very nicely. When you see no more colours coming out that should be the end.

5. SOAP CLEANSER- Now for your skin, use a soap based cleanser to remove all the left out colours and then wash properly. Do not apply more than two times or else your skin can become rough leading to entry of chemicals and break outs!

6. SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER & HAIR SERUM- Shampoo your hair 2-3 times to completely get rid of the colours and apply conditioner as well. Use a serum to reduce dryness.

8. ANTIBACTERIAL LOTION- Mix a small amount of antibacterial lotion in your bathing water. You can also apply it on your skin after bathing to avoid any after effects of chemical colours.

7. MOISTURISER- To reduce chemical effects and dryness caused by the vigorous wash done, immediately following with moisturiser. Avoid break outs and skin rashes by reducing dryness.

8. SCRUBBING- The next day, wash your skin and gently scrub all the exposed parts of your body. It’s very necessary so that all the stubborn particles get removed away.

9. HAIR & SKIN MASK- Then do apply a hair and skin mask for your hair and all the exposed areas of your body. Try any which suits you. You can also try a hot oil massage for your hair if you’re not having time to apply mask. Or mix curd with oil and apply. For skin it varies.

10. APPLY TONER AND MOISTURISER- After all other above steps are over, do end the regime by applying a cooling toner and a suitable moisturiser. This will prep your skin for the normal daily routine once again.

Hope this helps!
