After holi skin care

Playing Holi is all fun until you come home with colours all over your skin and hair and know that you will have to work hard to get rid of them.

Did you know that the harmful chemicals present in the Holi colours further dry out your skin and make it look dull and washed out?

We know that you will never stop having a blast at Holi parties just to save yourself the hassle of taking care of your skin after the festival. So, here’s our ultimate guide with some amazing post Holi skin care tips that will help you take care of your skin after Holi and will bring back the natural glow on your face.

How Do Holi Colours Affect Your Skin?

It is no secret that Holi colours can damage your skin. Holi colours are known to cause dryness and skin irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin. Dermatologists also believe that the harsh chemicals in these colours absorb all the moisture in your skin and make it flaky, dry, and prone to acne.

8 Post Holi Tips to Protect Your Skin

Your skin needs extra love and care after Holi as it is exposed to dirt, harmful chemicals, and pollution. Here are 8 handy post Holi skin care tips that will help you manage your post-Holi skin better.

1. Cleanse Your Face Effectively

It is important that you thoroughly clean your face after Holi with a gentle foaming face wash that will help to get rid of all the dirt, grime, and colour on your face. We recommend that you apply coconut oil, a heavy moisturiser, or cold cream on your face before you use a face wash as this will help to remove the colours from your face faster.

2. Moisturise Your Skin

You might notice that your skin has become drier after playing Holi. So, we recommend that you lather your skin with a nourishing and hydrating moisturiser the days following Holi.

A pro tip is to make sure that you apply a thick layer of moisturiser or coconut oil on your skin before you step outside your house to play Holi. This will act as a pre-care regime that will protect your skin and minimise the damage that will be caused.

3. Apply A Sunscreen Gel

We cannot put enough stress on how important it is to apply sunscreen on your skin before and after you play Holi. We recommend that you generously apply sunscreen daily before Holi. This will prep your skin for upcoming damage and will keep it well-protected and nourished. The sun smart ultra matte cream gel sunscreen from makeO skin (formely skinnsi) provides the highest UVA protection and shields you against infrared radiation. Its matte effect will keep you feeling fresh, ready to conquer the day.

4. Indulge in Homemade Face Masks

Feel like your skin has lost its glow and is looking lifeless? Why not indulge in a homemade face mask once or twice a week to give your face its original glow back? When it comes to whipping up a face mask at home, turmeric, sandalwood, saffron, milk, lemon, curd, and rosewater are some of the best ingredients that you can add to your homemade face masks.

5. Avoid Usage of Warm Water

To avoid further damaging your skin, it is important that you ditch warm water and wash your face with cold water for a few days after you play Holi. Cold water soothes your skin from the effects of the harsh chemicals in the colours and helps in restoring and replenishing your skin’s health.

6. Replenish Your Skin With A Facial Treatment

Feel like homemade facial masks are not enough to repair your damaged skin? Wait for a couple of days and then consider going for a facial treatment that will help to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, and uplift your skin.

At makeO skin (formely skinnsi), you can choose an at-home oil control, instant glow, or hydra polishing treatment. The best thing about choosing our at-home skin care treatments is that they are convenient, and affordable and are performed by dermatologists trained therapists.
