5 Tricks To Protect Your Body & Hair From Holi

With water pistols and balloons in tow, Holi is round the corner. The vibrant festival is as much notorious fun as it is brutal for the skin. Here are 5 tips to protect your skin against the wrath of the pinks and blues and greens.

 

  1. Moisturizer

Before stepping out into the “field”, apply generous amounts of moisturizer or body oil. Be sure of covering your face, neck, shoulders, arms, legs and any exposed area of your body, especially the insides of your ears and navel, and the area between fingers and toes. The grease keeps the harsh colors from settling into your skin, hence making it easier to wash off.

 

  1. Sunscreen

Apart from making sure that you wear clothes with maximum coverage – what, you want to be pink and tanned? – smear on a generous amount of sunscreen. The greasiness of the lotion acts as a protective layer against the colors as well.

 

  1. Hair Oil

Coat your hair and scalp with generous amounts – that is, at least 2 layers – of hair oil. The oil helps in getting the color off easily and protect it from the chemical present in the colors. Make you tie up your hair to avoid damage amidst all the madness.

 

  1. Nail Polish

This is the easiest way of steering clear of multi color nails after Holi. Apply a coat of clear or colored nail paint on your nails. After the festival you can simply remove it using a nail polish remover and it’ll be like you never played Holi!

 

  1. Lip Balm

Save your lips too! Dab on a layer of lip balm or petroleum jelly over your lips to keep them hydrated and protected. Using Vaseline under your nails is also a good idea. Dry skin causes the pores to open wide; keeping them shaded and moisturized will help you not look like a candy floss post holi.

 

Happy Holi beauties! Check out the Holi Beauty Box here to keep up with the vibrant festive spirit.

5 Home Remedies To Bring Your Chapped Lips To Life

We don’t need any more signs from Mother Nature to tell us that winter is round the corner. And what is one of the most painful things that the frigid arctic winds bring along with them? No, we’re not talking about the morning bath. It’s dry and chapped lips.

Just like the rest of your body, your lips too face the chilly wrath of winters. Here are 5 home remedies to replenish your natural pout without spending all your life’s savings in lip balms.

  1. Sugar

There’s a reason why Flo Rida’s lips like sugar. This quick routine using honey and sugar can rid your lip of all the dead skin. Mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons of sugar and let the paste sit on your lips for a while. Rub it over a few times gently and wash off with lukewarm water.sugarlipsW

  1. Coconut Oil

Not just a savior for your hair. Coconut oil has tremendous moisturizing content that can battle off the winter’s fury. Regularly pat on a layer of coconut oil just like a balm or ointment and see magic happen.orig

  1. Milk Cream

So you might not want it in your coffee, but the fat content of milk is just what your dry lips are yearning for. Apply a layer of milk fat on your lips and let it sit for 10 minutes so that the moisture seeps in nice and well. Remove with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water.m3

  1. Cucumber

Your summer lotion has cucumber, remember? That’s because the fruit too is high on moisture. Rub a slice of cucumber over your lips softly to let its extracts on. Leave on for about 15-20 minutes and wash off. Do it as often as you require depending on the dryness and your patience.img_7361_521e6affddf2b35d2f13bbd1

  1. Rose Petals/Water

The shrubs have been waiting for you to realize their true worth. Here’s why. Rinse a handful of rose petals and soak them in water for a few hours – the ardent vegan can opt for glycerin instead. Blend the solution into a paste and apply over your lips twice or thrice in a day.blogger-image--1873614089
