Just like planning out your Holi party is on the top of your list of priorities right now, taking care of your skin is equally important. Holi colours can leave a deep hue on your face for days post-Holi. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention.
So, here are some products that you shouldn't leave your house without applying before having fun with colours:1. Prepping Your Skin With Sunscreen
Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. Holi parties mean long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays.

For a festival like Holi, It's best to lather your entire body and hair with a thick layer of oil. We recommend sesame oil and coconut oil but you can also apply any other effective oil that you're comfortable with. This additional layer acts as a barrier against all the strong colours and prevents them from seeping into your skin by preventing direct contact.

Heavy duty balms like Vaseline add an extra layer of protection for your lips and for your face. If you have sensitive skin, you should definitely not step out of your house without wearing a heavy duty lip balm.

Face moisturizers may seem inconsequential for this, but it's not. Your face always needs a good moisturizer to guard you against pimples, blisters, and other scars. However, use the moisturizer ten minutes after sunscreen so that everything blends in seamlessly.
