       But as we all know, Holi comes with its own set of pros and cons. The chemical based colours  ruin the skin and damage the hair for days. Then start the endless visits to the salon for nourishment  and  doctors for skin complains.


Skin and Hair Care Tips for Holi # 1 to 20
1)  Apply sunscreen and rich moisturiser at least 10 minutes before going out to play with colours.
2)  Apply copious amounts of olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil or mustard oil on your face and body. Also apply some oil behind your ears, ear lobes and nails as these are points were the colour really tends to settle.
3)  Massage your hair well from scalp to hair tips with coconut, olive or castor oil. This oil gives your hair a protective covering and shields it from harmful chemicals, dust and dirt. This will help the colours come off easily later.
4)  Cover your lips with a thick coat of lip balm to protect them from colour damage.
5)  Avoid all facial treatments during this period. If you are prone to allergies and rashes, visit your dermatologist to check whether you need precautionary medication.
6)  Wear clothes with long sleeves and full length bottoms to protect your skin.
7)  Don’t  sit in sunlight after playing Holi. It makes it difficult to remove and harm the skin as well. Sit in shade even when playing outdoors.
8)  To get rid of the colour from hair completely, wash it 2-3 times. Apply lot of moisturizer on body and face after taking shower.
9)  You can apply light daytime make-up. Touch up your eyes with an eye-pencil or kajal stick and use a lip gloss or balm. However, if you intend to play rigorously with colours, try not to wear any make-up.
10) Protect your nails from the harsh effects of colours by using a transparent nail polish Opt for red or pink colours because they can be easily removed as compared to colours like yellow, green, orange or dark purple as they have comparatively more harmful chemicals in them.
11) Try to ensure a safe and skin-friendly Holi by using herbal or natural colours: henna or spinach (green), turmeric or marigold flowers (yellow), tomatoes or beetroot or kumkum (red) & tea leaves (brown).
12)  After playing with the colours, remember not to use harsh soaps to get rid of colours from your skin. Do not wash your face with soap immediately because soap is alkaline and causes further dryness. Instead, use a cleansing cream or lotion, like cleansing milk which soothes the skin while cleansing. Massage on the skin and then wipe off with moist cotton wool.
13)  Til oil can also be used to remove colours by massaging it on face and body. This not only helps to remove the colours, but gives added protection to the skin.
14)  While washing your hair, first rinse it with plenty of plain water to wash off  the dry colours and tiny particles of mica. Apply a mild natural shampoo which deeply cleanses the hair without causing any further damage. Work it into the hair with your fingers, massage the scalp gently and rinse thoroughly with water again.
15)  Add the juice of a lemon to a mug of water and use it as a last rinse. This helps to restore the acid-alkaline balance of the scalp. Beer can also be used as a last rinse to soften and condition the hair.
16)  You can also apply a hair pack made of amla powder, boiled shikakai powder and water. Another homemade recipe for hair pack that works is a mixture of henna powder, four teaspoons of lemon juice and curd. Apply on hair and wash off after an hour.
17)  Use a toner to close the pores on your face before you head out. This way, you reduce the chances of colour going in too deep.
18)  Don’t forget to wear waterproof sunscreen before you step out for a day in the sun
19)  It’s a good idea to wear a thick scarf or bandana to cover your hair.
20)  Don’t wear lenses when you go out to play! While Holi colours by themselves cause irritability, lenses have a tendency to absorb the colour, thereby making things worse. Wear glasses and keep wiping them clean from time to time.
