‘Tis the season of colors again! With spring, comes the vibrant, feverishly energetic festival of Holi and we couldn’t be more excited. Granted that large-scale festivities may not be possible this year because of the pandemic, there’s no reason why you won’t be able to celebrate with a splash of colors with your immediate loved ones.
While Holi might be your favorite festival, it is important to remember that the colors can wreak havoc on your skin health, and hair. In this blog, we have a few tips to share with you so that you can guarantee a safe Holi for you and your family this year.
Tips For A Safe And Harmless Holi
First things first, put on your worst clothes before you gear up for a water gunfight! You really don’t want to stain your favorite t-shirt or blouse. After that, oil your hair really well so that the colors don’t seep into your hair strands. Many also suggest moisturizing your body as it makes washing off the colors much easier.
Next comes eye protection! You don’t want the colors to irritate your eyes so make sure that you wear sunglasses. As you will be spending a better part of the day outdoors, we recommend sunscreen too. Remember to drink water. If you don’t want to go to work with red or pink-colored ears the next day, wear earplugs!
Make sure that you don’t buy poor quality Holi colors in bulk. Although cheap, they can do a lot of damage to your skin and hair and are extremely bad for the environment too. A responsible way to celebrate Holi would be to get eco-friendly, organic Gulal shipped to you from India. There are quite a few websites that sell organic Gulal, such as Earth Inspired, Organic India, and of course, Amazon!
Do check whether the retailers are authentic or not before you seal the deal. For an epic water fight, you can always get your essentials such as water gun toys, and the like from Indian websites any day.
We hope that you have a great, fun-filled Holi! Need a few festival essentials but can’t find them anywhere in your country? We’d be more than happy to ship them for you from India.
