Holi is only a few weeks away, which means everyone must have started gearing up for carefree fun with colours. But, what will happen when the celebration is over, you will want to get rid of all that colour as soon as possible, but that doesn’t mean you need to be harsh on your skin. Your favourite fun festival can turn out to be a nightmare for your skin if not taken care properly. Rubbing your skin extremely and strongly can irritate your skin and can cause fine particles of the colours to enter deep into your skin. This does not mean that you have to cut down the celebration to protect your skin as with the correct post-Holi care management in place, you can have a good time. Check out the tips below that will surely help you to get the colour off faster and keep the skin healthy.
Removal of Colour
Once you are done playing with colours splash some cold or lukewarm water to get rid of the excess colour. Once you are done with the excess colour apply some olive oil on cotton and wipe your face and neck just like in the same way you remove makeup from your face. Olive oil is more preferred for the skin, instead of washing your face with face wash or soap, use olive oil to remove colours but remember to be gentle.

Soothe Your Skin with Ice
Once you are done removing all the colours from your skin and hair now try soothing it with ice. Since you were out for all-day under the direct sun – there are chances of getting sunburnt and dry. The best remedy to cure this is rubbing ice-cubes over your neck and face. Simply, wrap some ice cubes in a thin cotton cloth, and gently rub it on your face and neck. Ice cubes will not only soothe your skin but will also provide relief from the heat, making your skin appear smooth.
Since your skin has been exposed to chemicals and heat all day, it is suggested to avoid wearing too much makeup for at least a week to keep it toxin-free. If you do want to wear makeup try opting for BB cream, moisturiser or compact powder as heavy makeups will not let your skin breathe.
No to Salon Treatments
It is highly recommended not to go for painful salon treatments like threading, waxing, shaving, etc. at least for four to five days post-Holi. Your skin is already damaged by colours and sun exposure and these painful treatments can further irritate your skin. Give little time to heal before you visit a salon for any treatments.
Nourish Your Hair
Post- Holi celebration left your hair too dry then try oiling your hair thoroughly. Use mild shampoo thoroughly, nourish it with a good conditioner and a hair serum. Try Avoiding any kind of gels, sprays or heat-based treatments for a week.
