Holi is around the corner, and this festival of colours will be celebrated on March 8th 2023. Holi 2023 celebration is incomplete without colours, pichkari, water balloons and more. We celebrate this festival of colour, Holi 2023 using natural and herbal colours, but we're unsure which type of colours are our friends and dear ones choosing to play Holi. This not-so-conscious decision taken by others makes our skin, hair and nail health suffer. The harmful chemicals present in the Holi colours take a toll on our skin and hair which can cause itchy patches, rashes and dryness.

We all take precautions before heading out to play Holi and indulge in some essential Holi skincare routine that can prevent and protect our skin from harmful chemicals and no so pleasant staining. Despite taking all the precautions before Holi, we often stain and do not realise that post-Holi skin care and hair care are also equally important. Getting rid of colours safely is essential as it helps save our skin's natural barrier and lets you glow even after Holi 2023 celebrations. So to avoid the grapple with the after-effects of the Holi you need to pay attention to how to remove colours from the face, body, hair and nails to keep them healthy and avoid long-term damage.
