Rub Ice Cubes on Face
We all know that ice cubes work as the best home remedy to shrink the enlarged pores on your face. And so the first and foremost skincare tip you should follow right before stepping out for Holi is, shrinking and closing the open pores with the use of ice cubes. Rub ice cubes on your clean face for 10 minutes and then move on to the next steps.
Hydrate Your Skin
Everyone has a moisturizer they use on a daily basis and that’s all you’ll need for the Holi-day as well. Take a handful of moisturizer because that’s the minimum that you will need to keep your skin protected from the hazardous effects and synthetic elements of the color. The thick layer of moisturizer will act as a shield against the colors and will keep your skin safe and clear from color attacks.
Sunscreen is a must
The next thing you have to do is slather yourself with a thick coat of sunscreen. Because you will have to stay outdoors with the scorching heat of the sun, your skin will be confronted with the harmful rays of the sun, pollutants, and chemicals. A sunscreen is rich with antioxidants that will protect your skin from skin concerns and provide a broad range of sun protection. So don’t forget to apply sunscreen right before stepping out for holi-fun.
Full Body Oiling
If you want to get rid of all the after Holi colors easily without spending long hours in the bathroom, applying oil to your full body would be the best hack. We know that the colors don’t stay only till the face and reach our back, arms and legs also thus make sure you properly oil every part of your body, from head to toe.
Apply Petroleum Jelly
Like any other body part, it is also very important to take care of your lips as well, and for that petroleum jelly would be the best hack to rely on. Not only before Holi but petroleum jelly can be used on a daily basis to take care of your lips and protect them from getting chapped.
