Ways You Can Protect Your Skin from Harmful Colours | HOLI |

15th March 2022
"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.

Wear Sunglasses

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.

What is your skin type? | REVIEWS

7th November 2020
"Do you really have oily skin? Or is it combined skin?"

Skin is the biggest organ of your part and taking care of it sometimes is a huge task. Prior to implying various steps on taking care of your skin, you need to know what your skin type. You may put on heavy oils without really knowing your skin and may clog the beautiful pores suffocating them. Or, you may put on some heavy moisturizers that will reduce natural oil from your skin resulting in extra dryness. So, knowing your skin type is very essential. You need to understand your skin type in order to use the appropriate products to bring balance to your skin and make it healthy.

Every person's skin varies from each other. You may have dry skin but its level of dryness differs from any other person with dry skin. It's not possible to divide every skin type as it will create millions of types. So, basically, there are 3 types of skin i.e. Dry, Oily, and combination. Let's get to know them in brief.

How to know your skin type?

First of all, cleanse your face thoroughly with a mild cleanser and pat dry. Leave it for about 30 minutes without applying any other moisturizer, serums, and cream. After 30 minutes, if you have a shiny T-zone i.e. nose and forehead, you have a combined skin. And, if you get parched skin that feels tight and you face difficulty while smiling, you have dry skin. And, if you get a shine on your cheeks, and chin including your T-zone, then you have oily skin.


Dry Skin

Dry skin feels tight throughout the day. You may feel rough patches in your skin as they can be all flaky sometimes. People with dry skin face difficulties and pain in their faces when the skin folds. Dry skin is often caused due to genetics, environmental factors such as lifestyle & diet, hormonal changes, and climate; moreover, dehydration also causes dry skin- so, make sure you drink plenty of water to avoid any form of dryness. Also, it's better to avoid any form of alcoholic drinks and caffeine to have glowing skin. With daily exfoliation and moisturization, you can have a glowing face without any dry patches. If you exfoliate before moisturizing, then your skin can absorb moisture adequately.

Oily Skin

If you have shine on your entire face including nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin, then you probably have oily skin. Often when you wake up, your face will be all wet with the natural oils; furthermore, your pillow may also get wet due to the face oils. Excess oil in the face may leave your face congested and clogged which will make your skin unhealthier and difficult to breathe. Oily skins are often prone to acne; so, you have to take proper care of your skin and maintain balance with the natural oil. The best thing about having oily skin is that it has natural moisture and is less prone to wrinkles. With a gentle physical exfoliation with anti-bacterial ingredients, you can get rid of acne, and dark spots resulting from recent skin breakouts; and can also bring balance to your natural oils unclogging your pores.

Combined Skin

If you have shine on the nose and forehead, then you have combined skin. Combined skin is often moisturized in the T-zone. Normally, a person with combined skin has low to no breakouts. Daily gentle exfoliation is also important to keep the t-zone and cheek areas balances. Moisturizers with a gel-like texture are absorbed more quickly and less likely to cause breakouts. Start with a small amount and increase as needed to avoid over-moisturizing and stressing the skin.

Essential skincare for teenagers

7th December 2021
"How you treat your skin now will likely play a role in how your skin looks and feels in the future."

As a teenager, you have plenty to deal with without having to add researching the best skincare and acne treatment for teens to your to-do list. How you treat your skin now will likely play a role in how your skin looks and feels in the future.

Here are the best essential skincare tips for teenagers:

Wash Your Face

That’s the first thing to do when you wake up in the morning. Because you need to clear your skin of the oil and sweat that have accumulated on your skin all through the night.

Do not use soap; use a mild cleanser. Do not rub aggressively as it can irritate the skin and increase oil secretion.


Yes. Even the most problematic skin needs to be moisturized.

Pick a light skin cream that’s suitable for your skin and addresses your skin issues (like acne or spots).

You can use matte finish moisturizers that are easily available on the market. If you are going out, you can use a tinted moisturizer.

Stay Away From Scrubs

Even the pore strippers. Wondering how on earth you are going to get rid of the blackheads?

The best way to get rid of them is to follow a cleansing routine religiously.

Use a product that contains 2% salicylic acid. You can talk to a dermatologist for a recommendation.

In case you are under 16, always do this under adult supervision.

Treat Acne

While acne can occur at any age, teens are more likely to get acne breakouts due to hormonal changes.

Use sulfur cleansers and masks to dry out your skin. They tend to be gentler on the skin than salicylic acid.

Benzoyl peroxide face washes, creams, foams, and gels are antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. They are very helpful in acne treatment.

Protection from Sun Damage

You’re not too young to start a daily sun protection routine.

After moisturizing, reach for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher and apply as directed.

Toss the bottle in your backpack so you can reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating.

Use a Face Mask or Face pack

Face masks have several benefits. They not only remove dirt, impurities, and toxins from your skin surface but also keep it moisturized.

Though you can easily buy readymade face masks and packs from the market, it is better to stick to natural ingredients.

Spread the mask on your face and wait until it’s dry and then wipe it clean.
