Holi is here, and it is time to figure out ways to safeguard your skin and hair. This spring, play with homemade, organic Holi colours, and keep haircare and skincare woes at bay. The combination of terrible ingredients in artificial colours (in case you're wondering: diesel, mica, glass) along with the sun's UV rays can damage your skin irreparably, causing redness, irritation and eczema – so we recommend you stay away from non-herbal Holi colours and also use dollops of sunscreen.

Here is how to make organic Holi colours, from baby pinks and mellow greens to bright oranges and bold blues. Made from non-toxic and nourishing ingredients, these homemade organic colours are entirely safe to use. Have a look.
