A chilled glass of flavored milk, relentless dancing to Bollywood songs on loop and different shades of colour in the air- there’s so much to love about Holi. And what better way to celebrate it than the traditional way with gulal and splashes of colours. Having said that, we often forget to take care of our skin during this time amidst all the gaiety. The colors do take a toll on your skin, leaving it dry and dehydrated after the long hours of festivities coupled with exposure to the sun. Sobiya Moghul, Content Lead at Amazon Beauty shares some post Holi tips and tricks to help retain your glowing skin.
Body Scrub: The most important self-care step post Holi is– ‘exfoliating’. After cleansing your skin completely, it is imperative to exfoliate your body using a gentle scrub to get rid of all the stubborn color. Wash it off gently with lukewarm water.

Body Oil: A mandatory step of the post-Holi skincare regimen is using a body oil. It is rich in antioxidants and massaging a generous amount onto your skin will help nourish the skin from within, while getting rid of the colour gently and naturally.

Moisturizer: After taking a warm shower, don’t forget to moisturize your skin. The skin tends to get dry after excess exposure to the sun and colors, followed by rigorous exfoliation. The right moisturizer will keep your skin smooth and hydrated.

Lip Balms: Like your skin, your lips also need some post Holi care. Your lips can get chapped and gently rubbing a lip balm into your lips not only helps you get rid of the colors, it acts as a protective barrier and keeps them nourished.
