On Holi, don’t fret if your friends dip you in every possible colour before you have had the time to protect your hair, skin and nails with oil, moisturiser and nailpaint, respectively. Just follow these simple steps to revive your skin and hair once the festivities are over:
“Facials that deep-cleanse, moisturise and hydrate the skin to maintain its natural glow and retain its (skin’s) pH balance are essential after the festivity. The skin becomes dry and patchy, hence go for a body polishing treatment to remove the extra dryness and hydrate the skin with vitamin E,” says Sushma Khan, national trainer, skin and makeup, Lakmé Salon.
Aroma oils must be used for a gentle manicure and pedicure to get rid of the colours.
Frizzy no more
Harsh chemicals in colours can cause skin rashes, and the hair can turn brittle and extremely dry. “Do not rub the skin vigorously with soaps. Take it as a cleanser and apply moisturiser thereafter. One can also massage off the leftover colour with baby oil,”
suggests Dr Ajay Rana, dermatologist, Berkowits Hair and Skin Clinics.
