6 Skin and Hair Care Tips for Holi 2019
Following are some simple ways by which you can protect your skin from the harmful effects of colors:-
1. Try to wear such clothes that cover most of your body parts so that the least amount of color can reach your skin directly.
2. You can also apply oil or any lotion on the skin all over in order to prevent the color from getting stuck on the skin as the greasy layer of oil will not let color remain on the skin.
