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.
