Hindus threw colored powder and sprayed water in massive celebrations of the festival of Holi in India on Tuesday, but the enthusiasm was subdued compared to previous years because of fears of the new virus.

Brightly colored powder filled the air in most parts of North India. But in the capital, New Delhi, many events were canceled as the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country rose to 47.

Holi, which marks the advent of spring, is widely celebrated in India, Nepal and other South Asian countries.

Most years, millions of people from toddlers to the elderly throw powder at each other and play with water balloons and squirt guns. But this year Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted that he would not participate in public Holi celebrations because of the virus outbreak.

“Yes, it’s coronavirus that made us cancel our programs,” said Anshuman Ghulati, festival director of Holi Moo, one of the biggest Holi events in New Delhi which last year drew some 7,000 people from around the world “People are scared this year, we have canceled our event,” he said.

Other groups in New Delhi also canceled their plans. Atul Goyal, president of United Residents Joint Action, said there would be no gala lunches or water dance events.

‘Considering the coronavirus outbreak, you are advised to cancel Holi gatherings, in particular playing with water and touching of nose, eyes and lips and shaking hands,” the group said in an advisory.

But many defied the recommendations in other parts of the country.

People danced and smeared each other with colors in the northern state of Uttarakhand. Still, “there has been some effect from the coronavirus on celebrations,” said Neeraj Kumar, a resident of the state.

Sellers of colored powder and water guns said their sales had plunged.

“The fear that customers have over the coronavirus and the large number of people that are getting sick has made them slightly disinterested in celebrating Holi. So our sales have become very less this Holi,” vendor Jitender Pandey said.

Having said that, we often forget to take care of our skin during this time amidst all the gaiety. The colours do take a toll on your skin, leaving it dry and dehydrated after the long hours of festivities coupled with exposure to the sun.

Body Scrub: The most important self-care step post Holi is ‘exfoliating’. After cleansing your skin completely, it is imperative to exfoliate your body using a gentle scrub to get rid of all the stubborn colour. Wash it off gently with lukewarm water.

Body Oil: A mandatory step of the post-Holi skincare regimen is using a body oil. It is rich in antioxidants and massaging a generous amount onto your skin will help nourish the skin from within, while getting rid of the colour gently and naturally.

Face Pack: Excessive colour can cause breakouts and even dull your skin. An herbal face pack will help soothe the skin while healing it. Regularly using a face pack will help your skin slowly regain its glow.

Moisturizer: After taking a warm shower, don’t forget to moisturize your skin. The skin tends to get dry after excess exposure to the sun and colours, followed by rigorous exfoliation. The right moisturizer will keep your skin smooth and hydrated.

Lip Balms: Like your skin, your lips also need some post Holi care. Your lips can get chapped and gently rubbing a lip balm into your lips not only helps you get rid of the colour, it acts as a protective barrier and keeps them nourished. (IANS)
