Skin care during Holi must come first as we are already in the middle of the season change and our skin is in transition mode. Therefore, the care needs to be a little more than usual. There are few oils that can be your savior during Holi, and according to Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Chairman of the Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies, must use these oils in order to have healthy skin after playing Holi. Here are some aromatherapist recommended base oils.
Let’s start with the king of oils, coconut oil. This has always been my favorite oil for daily skin and hair care. So how can we forget about it during Holi? The best thing about coconut oil is that it isn’t thick, but thanks to the oil’s large molecule, it creates a protective shield on the skin that prevents the colors from penetrating.
Another oil to try is olive oil, which is the lightest oil that you can apply to your skin. It doesn’t make your face greasy and provides complete sun protection.
You can also use almond oil on your skin. Some believe the oil has a very strong odor, so you can mix it with a few drops of lavender or sandalwood oil. As a result, the paint does not stick to the skin and can be easily removed.
Many people complain of skin irritation after playing Holi. During this time, you should coat your skin with oils and moisturizers. Apply a lighter oil first. You don’t need a heavy oil as a heavy oil removes a protective layer. At this point, however, you want an oil that can penetrate your skin and keep it hydrated. So use lavender, neroli, or sensitive skin oil on your face. Apply it thoroughly, don’t forget your neck, then apply a layer of moisturizer on top.
These oils are sure to protect your skin from all the harsh colors and chemicals, so you can celebrate the festival of colors with all your might and joy!
