The first major festival of the year is just around the corner and like everyone else, we are here to give you granny advice on how to play a safe Holi.
1. Protect Your Hair
Use your favourite, fragrant hair oil to protect your tresses from going dry, thanks to colours and excess use of water.
2. Safeguard Your Nails
Lighter nail paints can cause synthetic Holi colours to seep through all the way to the nails, cuticles and surrounding skin. Use as dark a shade of nail paint as possible, like black, to protect your nails from the chemical-filled colours of Holi that refuse to wear off for days.
3. Mask-up Your Face
Tone your skin with your favourite toner and moisturize it so that it is easier to take off Holi colours while leaving your pores open to breathe. Don’t forget to cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturize later, too!
4. Take Care of Your Hands
Apply a hand cream or body lotion before you dip your fingers into platefuls of colour. This will help take off the colour better and keep your hands moisturised.
5. Keep Your Feet Safe
Apply your body lotion here too. If you have a special feet cream, that will definitely work wonders. Don’t forget to moisturize even after you’re done cleaning post your festive fun!
6. Be Kind to Your Tummy
If you are someone who has one bhaang too many, then you need to make sure you have your hangover cure handy.
7. Cover It All Up
If you want to stay safe from water, colour and everything in between, we suggest you wear a raincoat before stepping out.
Go ahead, rock that festival! Have a happy and safe Holi.
