Holi colours can damage your skin and leave your hair lifeless for days. Use a good moisturizing face wash on your face after playing Holi and apply a clarifying shampoo to rinse colour from hair, say experts.

Aneesh Sheth’s CEO, Dr Sheth’s and Madhavi Irani, Chief Officer, Content, Nykaa.com, an online all brand make-up store — have listed out ways to take care of your hair and skin after playing Holi.

* Use a good moisturizing face wash on your face after playing Holi. The colours can be very drying and using soap or harsh facewash can irritate the skin further.

* After deep cleansing, apply a soothing anti-oxidant cream which contains Vitamin E that works to repair and hydrate the skin to keep it soft and supple all day long.

* For a home remedy, mix yoghurt and honey with some rose water and apply it as a mask. This will calm and nourish the skin that has been damaged.

* Use a clarifying shampoo to rinse colour from hair. After using shampoo, apply conditioner on the lengths of hair. Leave on for a couple of minutes and rinse with cold water. Use colour protect conditioner for colour treated hair.

* After your shower, don’t forget to apply a nourishing body lotion and face moisturiser as the skin tends to become dry due to excess colour and sun exposure. Applying a good moisturizing cream after your bath will also help restore your skin’s lipid balance and soothe irritated skin.

* All that scrubbing can leave your facial skin dry and inflamed. Choose a light face oil, that works best for your skin type, on thoroughly cleansed skin to soothe and hydrate it.

* A simple home remedy to fade stubborn colour that simply won’t wash off: Make a mixture of gram flour, sweet almond oil and milk cream in rose water. Apply the paste on the areas where the colour has settled. Let the paste dry on the skin and rub it in circular gently to remove it. (IANS)

With Holi round the corner, which premium smartphone will help you capture those colourful moments?

According to New Delhi-based photographer Prashanth Vishwanathan, when it comes to clicking a perfect Holi snap, the cameras in both iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have an upper hand among the premium smartphones in India where Apple, Samsung, Google Pixel and Huawei devices jostle for space.

“Both Apple devices have a dual 12MP camera set up, offering a wide-angle and a telephoto lens. Using the iPhone XS is incredibly simple, with a pretty basic native camera app,” Vishwanathan told IANS.

Water splash and throwing Holi colour powder are best shot on “Slo-mo” video.

“Slo-mo looks great when the phone is placed on an even surface and is stationary. This trick would also avoid the focus point from shifting,” he added.

Videos look best when the camera is stable or mounted over a tripod or in an even surface. “Use a gimbal to stabilise your videos and give that cinematic feel,” said Vishwanathan.

In case one needs to capture quick movement, the burst mode is amazing as it captures sudden movement like a lighting or colour burst.
