Keeping your skin moisturised is the most important step. Apply a gentle moisturiser that keeps you protected from the hazardous effects of colours and the synthetic elements in it. Pick a moisturiser that suits your skin type and helps retain moisture.


You can go for a good water based toner to maintain the nourishment level for your skin. You can either go for a clinically recommended toner or a herbal one is also a good choice.


Applying oil to your skin and hair before the Holi celebration begins is always a good idea as it helps in getting rid of the colours post celebrations in a much easier way.


Before the final cleanse regime, go for some homemade scrubbing as it will help in getting rid of the dead skin and the remaining colours post the festivities.
