PRE HOLI SKIN Make a mixture of Coconut oil 1 tbsp,castor oil 1 tsp and olive oil 1 tbsp and apply it all over your skin before playing Holi. apply behind the ears, between toes finger and hand fingers and other exposed areas. Apply a sunscreen (preferably SPF 20 and above) 20 minutes before going out. Most sunscreens have built-in moisturisers but if your skin is very dry, apply sunscreen, wait for a few minutes and follow up with a moisturiser. Apply a lotion on your arms and other exposed areas too. LIPS Use  petroleum jelly on your lips  will work for a longer period of time. HAIRS Massage your hair well with oil and tie them up in a bun. This will ensure that the scalp and hair do not absorb colours too easily. In case you have short hair, apply hair gel.You can also wear a bandana. NAIL Drench your cuticles in olive oil so your nails do not soak up any colour. Then, use a thick coat of nail paint on the nails and put Vaseline under the nail edges.

POST HOLI 1.Avoid the use of soaps or face washes as they are alkaline in nature, they will dry your skin. Instead take pure almond oil or coconut oil and massage it on your skin. Then take damp cotton and remove the colors. Once the colors are off take a cold or lukewarm shower and after that moisturize your skin well. If your skin is dry and itchy then massage aloe vera gel before shower. 2.To wash your hair, first rinse with plenty of plain water. Then apply a mild herbal shampoo, working it into the hair with your fingers and massage the scalp gently and rinse thoroughly. Beer can be used as a last rinse. Squeeze juice of a lemon in your mug of beer and pour over your hair. Leave for a few minutes and rinse off with plain water.
 3.Sesame seed (til) oil can also help in removing the colours, apart from countering sun damage. Massage your skin with sesame oil and leave it on your skin for 15 minutes or so. While bathing, scrub the body gently with a loofah. Apply a lotion.
To regain smooth, soft skin, mix 2 tbsp honey with half cup curd, add a pinch of turmeric. Apply this paste on your face, neck and arms. Leave for 20 minutes and wash off with water.
REGAIN SHINE OF YOUR HAIR - To nourish your hair, mix 1 tbsp pure coconut oil with 1 tsp castor oil. Heat and apply on your hair. Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around the head, like a turban. Keep it for five minutes. Repeat towel treatment 3-4 times. Wash your hair after an hour.
