Holi is a festival of colours and playing Holi without colours would be like eating food without any taste. You may buy natural and herbal colours, but other people around you may not be so conscious about the quality of colours they use and play with. This can affect your skin by leaving colour stains on your body for a long time.
But before other people colour you, have a look at these natural and easy ways to get rid of post-Holi colours with Pure Honey.
So, once you have had a blast playing Holi and you are back from the celebrations and in case you had taken no precautions and now you have found your skin stained with gulal and your hair filled with colour. It’s a troublesome situation that many of us find ourselves in almost every year and we always struggle in getting rid of those dreaded colours from our hair and skin. Well, Not this time. These home remedies will remove stains from both your skin and hair with ease.
Wash with lukewarm water –
The first step is that you wash your face with lukewarm or normal tap water, right after you finish playing Holi. Contrary to popular perception, washing your face and body with hot water won’t remove the colour stains. In fact, hot water solidifies the colour. Rinse your hair and splash your face with normal tap water or at max, lukewarm water.
The magic of Natural Pure Honey & Lemon –
Lemon is a natural bleaching agent which is useful in getting rid of colour stains. Mix lemon juice with 1tsp of honey, and apply it evenly on your face and body. Remove it after 15 minutes and then apply plenty of moisturizer after that.
Homemade Packs of organic honey –
Homemade packs of organic honey are available through a Natural Pure Honey Manufacturer.
There are always some wonderful magic ingredients in your kitchen. You can make a highly-effective pack with curd, besan or gram flour, turmeric, olive oil, lemon juice & natural Pure Honey. All of these lightens the visibility of the dark shades of Holi colours and helps the skin to get back to its original complexion and glow quickly. Apply this wonder paste on your body every alternate day post-Holi, to get faster results.
If you are having trouble in removing Holi colours from your hair, take one tablespoon of lemon juice and mix it in a cup of curd. Apply this mixture on your hair & scalp and rinse it.
Another way to say goodbye to the colour which has made its way in your hair is to massage egg yolk mixed with a teaspoon of honey onto your scalp for at least 30 minutes.
These measures will not only help you get rid of the colour but will also protect your skin and hair from the negative effects of chemicals and other harmful substances that are often used to make Holi colours.
A few more ingredients in your kitchen that help post Holi skin with raw honey :
