Once you get rid of all the colours and shampoo, remember to rinse your hair one last time with lemon juice.


Facial Beauty

It is a strict no-no to scrub your face to get rid of those indelible colours. Also, one must not use a soap to wash their face as it is alkaline and hence can cause further dryness. Firstly cleanse your skin with coconut oil as it works as a very good natural cleanser for all skin types.

You can apply some olive oil to your face to remove the colour. You simply have to dab some oil on your face, let it stay for a couple of minutes and then wash it off.

A mixture of lemon juice, curd, and sandalwood also works wonders for the face. In case you’re not comfortable using any of the above ingredients, you can try making a mixture of turmeric and white flour and wash it off after 15 minutes with milk.

If you have a very sensitive skin, you can also use essential oils like tea tree oil for oily or acne-prone skin for treatment, lavender oil to treat cuts or rashes on your face and also on your body.

Hope you did have a super colourful Holi! 🙂
