The ever-bright festival of colors is here! Every year Holi brings in the joy of togetherness and vibrancy. The liveliness of spreading colors and splashing water guns or water balloons is a joy but it also comes with some risks for the skin as well. The harshness of non-organic Holi colors on your face however need not stop you from having fun. We have some essential tips and tricks for pre and post-skincare so you can play with colours and water with no worries.

With the right Lotus Herbals skin care products, you can save your skin from chemicals and other factors, so without further ado, let's begin!

Pre-Holi skin Care Tips

Prepping your skin right before heading out of your door can make a huge difference. It protects your skin from the harshness of the colors and helps the post-skincare routine to glide on smoothly. Here are five things you should consider as a part of your pre-holi skincare.

       1. Start with protecting your lips

Your lips can get stained with the Holi colors, so keeping them covered with a lip balm can be extremely helpful. Use the Colorkick Exfoliating & Hydrating Lip Sugar SPF 20 which  is a hydrating and exfoliating lip product that naturally enhances your lip's color and texture and keeps them hydrated and soft with Vitamin E as one of the main ingredients

       2. Moisturize your skin

Your hands and legs may be exposed to harmful chemicals in Holi colors. Use a body lotion that can help moisturize your skin and provide much-needed protection. Try the Lotus Herbals Almond Nourish Daily Nourishing Body Lotion SPF 20 as a part of your skincare routine as it comes with added SPF and almond oil as main ingredients which not only adds a protection layer to your skin but also helps make the  post-Holi regime a lot easier. It helps to rejuvenate your skin and in addition, it has SPF 20 that provides much-needed sun protection.

      3. Extra sun protection

There is nothing like too much protection from the sun. Hence, apply a good sunscreen before you get rid of some colors. The Lotus Safe Sun Sports Super-Stay Sunscreen SPF 70 is highly recommended that is light on your skin and shields you from any radical damage that may be caused because of the toxic colors. This sunscreen has calendula oil extracts as one of the main ingredients, which houses SPF properties that can block harmful sun rays and soothe irritated, burnt, overstressed skin.  Chamomile helps to detoxify the skin, and brings out sheer radiance on the face. 

Post-Holi skin care tips

Now that you have had enough fun with water and colors, it's time to rejuvenate your skin from the probable damage. Here are some basic skincare routine steps for post-holi damage.

    1. Cleanse your face the right way.
