Pre and post holi hair and skin care –
Holi is a festival of colours and happiness. It is one such festival that brings out the child in us. The vibrant colours and the festive mood is enough to light up the atmosphere and enable people to enjoy. However, it is very essential that to ensure that we have a safe Holi.
During this festival we tend to use colours that have harsh chemicals, so first I would request you all to play Holi with Organic colours. The colours that are usually used during Holi can lead to skin allergies, rashes and damaged hair. According to me, the best way to play Holi is to play it with flowers. The aroma of different flowers makes a wonderful ambience and it is the safest way as well.
I would recommend you to follow a pre-holi regime for skin and hair care as under:
Post Holi Skin Care:
a.) Add 1 teaspoon of besan to 2 tablespoons of milk and make it into a paste. To it add a few drops of lavender essential oil. Apply this mixture on your skin. Then have a bath.
b.) Take 2 tablespoon of besan and sandalwood powder, to it add a tablespoon of orange peel and milk. Mix them together thoroughly and to this paste add 2 – 3 drops of sandalwood essential oil. Apply this mixture on your skin thoroughly and then have a bath.
