From eating yummy Gujiyas to playing with colours and throwing water balloons on each other, there is never a dull moment. It is the most vibrant festival and people from all over the world love to be a part of it.


There is no other joy that can be compared with the one we feel as we get drenched in colourful water or as we take initiative to colour our family and friends. However the most scary part of the festival is damage that we incur on our skin and hair.

But this year you don't have to fret about your beauty anymore for we have gotten for you some real nice skin and haircare tips that you can follow pre-holi and enjoy your festival without any inhibition.

Ice is known to close all the open skin pores and it will help in preventing the pores from getting clogged due to colours and developing acne. Rub ice cubes on your skin to close the pores and then massage your skin with layer of oil to prevent colours from sticking on your skin.

Almond Oil

Petroleum jelly is one stop solution for sensitive areas. Apply generous amount of petroleum jelly on your lips, between fingers, back of your ears and on neck to prevent colours from seeping deep into your skin and last for good long week.

Holi is generally played outdoors that means you will be under exposed sunlights. Apply water proof sunscreen to prevent your skin from getting tanned or developing  burns.

Coconut Oil

An amazing idea from grandma's black book. Wash your hair a day before holi and apply generous amount of coconut oil from your scalp till the roots. It will prevent your hair from getting dry and brittle due to colours.
