A high SPF sunscreen is an absolute must have, that needs to be applied before you enter the colour mayhem. Preferably 60 SPF, the sunscreen must be water-resistant and contain the wonder ingredient Tamarind in it. 
Loaded with antioxidants, tamarind protects your skin from hazardous radicals. It also is known to have enzymes, Vitamin B, Vitamin C and alpha hydroxyl acids that remove dead skin cells.

This will provide both hydration and smoothness and alongside protect the skin from the harshness of the chemicals. Make sure you use a generous amount of cream and get it all over your body to combat the harmful effects of the UVA and UVB rays.

Lip care

For soft luscious lips post-Holi, it’s essential to take certain necessary precautionary steps. 
Coat your lips with a thick protective layer of lip balm which heroes either shea butter or pomegranate. Shea butter locks dampness and prevents lips from drying out while pomegranate is known for its rich, natural moisturising quality.

Either way both are great go-to ingredients that protect the skin from toxic colours seeping in through the cracks while keeping them well-nourished at the same time.

AFTER

Skin care

After playing Holi, it is one of the most taxing task to get rid of all the colour, so we suggest a simple make-at-home pack that will help you get rid of all the colour without damaging your skin. 
Take two tablespoon of gram flour, add a pinch of turmeric powder to it, add a teaspoon of honey and then add milk/yoghurt to simultaneously moisturise your skin too.

Keep this pack on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with tepid water. You can use this pack on your entire body.
You can further cleanse your face with turmeric cleanser.
Moisturise your entire body with honey and shea butter moisturiser.
