Here are some skin care routines before and after Holi:
Pre-Holy Skin Care:
Be sure to thoroughly cleanse and exfoliate your skin before Holi. It will help to get rid of any impurities or dirt that may be present in your skin and also help to get rid of dead skin cells. Apply a good moisturizer all over your body, especially in dry areas like elbows and knees.
Use a good lip balm to protect your lips from harsh chemicals in holly color.
If you use any kind of face paint or makeup, don’t forget to remove it completely before playing Holi.
After enjoying the colors and festivities of Holi, it is important to take some time for post-Holi skin care.
Here are some steps to follow:
Remove all color from your skin using a gentle cleanser.
Apply a moisturizer to rehydrate your skin.
If you have a particularly dry area, apply a nourishing cream or oil.
Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and keep your skin healthy.
Take some time for yourself and relax after the busy Holi!
For dry skin:
After Holi some things can be done to bring back the radiance of a person with dry skin.
First, use a mild, moisturizing soap or body wash when bathing. Avoid using harsh detergents or soaps, which can remove natural oils and make the skin feel dry and irritated.
Second, apply a thick moisturizer to the skin immediately after bathing while it is still moist. This will help to seal the moisture and provide long lasting hydration.
Third, drink plenty of water throughout the day to restore lost fluids and restore normal skin balance.
Finally, it is recommended that individuals get all the nutrients their skin needs to eat healthy foods.
For oily skin:
If you have oily skin, use a mild foaming facewash to cleanse your skin. If you have combination skin, use a mild moisturizer after cleansing. Be sure to apply sunscreen before going to play with the color. Here is a skin care routine:
Start by cleaning your face with a mild, non-comedogenic soap-free cleanser.
Tone your face with a gentle, alcohol-free toner.
Apply a mild moisturizer that is oil-free and non-comedogenic.
Finish off by applying a matte sunscreen lotion with an SPF of 30 or higher.
For sensitive skin:
People with sensitive skin need some extra care. This is because their skin barriers are impaired and so they are more prone to skin irritation, dryness and redness.
One of the best ways to take care of sensitive skin is to use a mild cleanser. You should avoid using products that contain harsh chemicals or detergents, as these can snatch natural oils from your skin and cause irritation. Instead, look for a soap-free cleanser designed for sensitive skin.
Here are some basic tips for taking care of sensitive skin:
Use mild, odorless soap
Avoid over-the-counter acne treatments and other harsh products
Apply moisturizer immediately after cleaning
Find products designed specifically for sensitive skin
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day
