Ways You Can Protect Your Skin from Harmful Colours | HOLI |
"Holi was traditionally performed using natural colors derived from blossoms, but chemicals have since taken its place."
Almost everyone enjoys playing with colors, but the joyful day seems to end far too quickly, leaving us with the dreadful task of scrubbing the "color" of our dry, itchy faces for the following two weeks.
Holi was traditionally performed using natural colors derived from blossoms, but chemicals have since taken its place. Here are some tips:
Apply Coconut and Mustard Oils
As dry skin allows chemicals to easily infiltrate the body, apply coconut oil (ideally) to your entire body and mustard oil to your hair at least an hour before playing.
It is critical to apply oil between the fingertips, near the fingernails, and behind the ear.
Don't forget to apply sunscreen after you've oiled your body, and make sure it's gel-based, waterproof, and has an SPF of 25 or higher.
Remember to reapply sunscreen every 3 hours if you're out in the sun for more than 3 hours.
To protect your eyes, wear glasses or sunglasses when playing Holi. The eyes are extremely sensitive, and the chemical composition of the colors might irritate them, resulting in allergies. Wash your eyes with cold water at all times.
Contact an eye professional if the irritation lasts more than a few hours after playing Holi.
Avoid Wet Clothes
Make sure you do not wear wet clothes for more than two hours.
If you're playing dry Holi (which is obviously preferable), attempt to wash your face and hands on a frequent basis.
