Holi Skin Care: If you want to remove the color from your face after Holi, then try these easy methods!



Holi, the festival of colours, will be celebrated on 25 March. On this day people play and enjoy with different colours. However, the biggest challenge of playing Holi is removing the colours afterwards. Although it is always advisable to play Holi with natural colours and take precautions regarding skin and hair care, sometimes guests bring colours that are difficult to remove.

People often do many things to remove the colour from their faces. They scrub their skin vigorously with water and soap, which can potentially damage the skin and cause dryness and rashes. Therefore, after playing Holi, you can also use these home remedies to remove stubborn colours.

Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil can help in removing stubborn colours from the face. Massage the areas from which you want to remove colour with coconut oil. Let it soak into the skin and the discoloration will gradually fade away. Just remember not to rub the face too hard. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes before washing it off with a mild cleanser.
