How to Keep Healthy Skin With Natural Products in Holi

Indians love the festival of colours. People put on their white kurtas, pick their favourite colours, grab the Holi gun, and splash colours on people. Apart from preparing gujia and bhang, you also need some skin prep.  

Following a pre and post-Holi skincare routine is essential to ensure a safe and healthy Holi. You don’t want the acne breakout, blemishes, an uneven skin tone, and other skin issues after Holi. Luckily, you can find many natural and skin-friendly body ubtan, face wash, body soaps, and moisturisers that protect your skin from dry, wet, and greasy colours.

Here are some products you can add to your Holi skincare routine.

A Face Cleanser

A face cleanser suitable for your skin type and can help remove the oil and dirt buildup from your face effortlessly is the best skincare product for Holi. If you want the best face wash, try this Daily Dissolve and Fashflix Face Cleanser. It’s perfect for dry and oily skin. 

It helps you eliminate all skin impurities, stubborn dirt, colours, and makeup that won’t respond to your regular facewash. You can gently take a small amount on your hand and pat it on your skin. After massaging it all over your face, you can rinse it with cold water. If you have dry colours on your face, this face cleanser will come in handy.

Moisturise Your Skin 

Moisturising is a must, not only after Holi but every day. Face wash and cleansers strip away the natural oils from your skin, leaving it dehydrated. A nourishing moisturiser restores moisture on your skin and keeps it fresh and radiant throughout the day. Once you are done cleansing, you can apply a natural moisturiser across your face and massage it gently. 

Use Face Masks

Indians know how effective Ubtan face packs are for your skin. Ubtan is available in powder form. Add some water to make a thick paste, and apply it to your skin after cleansing. It’s best to leave the Ubtan on until it dries. 

You can wash your face with a mild face wash in 15-20 minutes. If you are concerned about chemicals in these face masks, you can try herbal ubtan to reduce the risk of side effects. For instance, this Amrutam Herbal Ubtan is a great face pack for all skin types. It comes with a face wash and a body lotion that hydrate your skin.

Use Sunscreen

Your skin needs protection from colours and the sun. Like regular days, applying 30+ SPF sunscreen before leaving your home is best. This will protect your skin from UV rays. Exposing your skin to the sun can cause hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and face spots. So, it’s advisable to use sunscreen always.

For those playing Holi with liquid colours, a water-proof sunscreen that creates a thick coat layer on your skin is the best option. Experts suggest that everyone should carry sunscreen. Your skin needs it every 2-3 hours, especially if you spend all day in the sun. If you don’t have sunscreen handy, you can choose a foundation that doubles as sunscreen.

Body Care

Like your facial skin, your body also needs protection from the colours. It’s best to wear a full-sleeved white kurta, so the colours do not penetrate your skin. No matter how much we try, our necks, hands, and legs get coloured. The best way to remove these stubborn stains is by washing your body with natural body soap.

Your skin after Holi might seem dull and dehydrated due to the stains and sun exposure. Using skincare products that suit your skin type and restore moisture is essential. The above products can help clean your skin and keep it looking fresh. Purchase and store them to look best before and after Holi.
