How to get rid of Holi color on the face
Holi, the festival of colors is an amazing festival, and we keep talking about indulging in a splash of color in fashion, and fashion is life, right? So stop staying indoors from this year and play the festival with total joy, using our tips for getting rid of Holi colors on the face, neck and other parts of the body. Read up on PYTs and share this article on how to remove Holi colors, with family and friends who stay away from the colorful affair and splash.
1. Wash and rinse with cold water
The biggest mistake made is using lukewarm or hot water for bathing after a color scheme. Stop doing that. Before you indulge in the game, we would like you to apply spoonfuls of cold cream liberally to your skin, then wait an hour. You can also use coconut oil and wait too. What this would do is form a protective layer over the skin of the color thrown at you. After the color scheme is complete, use cold water, not hot water, to wash. Hot water solidifies the intensity of the color, while cold water lowers the intensity.
2. Besan pack for the skin
We would like you to mix a cup of besan with half a cup of curd and a tablespoon of essential oil. Make it into a paste and apply it liberally to your skin. Wait ten minutes before gently rinsing the pack off, using facial cleanser and water. After the cleansing is complete, you can further hydrate the skin with cold coconut oil applied to the washed skin. Wait another ten minutes for the oil to penetrate the colored areas before washing it off. For the final rinse, mix half a cup of lemon juice with half a cup of rose water and rub the skin with it. Finally rinse with cold water.

Half a cup of amchour powder should be mixed with water and applied as a packet to the face and neck. This is for OILY SKIN TYPES only. Wait half an hour and then wash it off in circular motions. Excessive use of amchour powder can lead to dehydration of the skin, if this happens, you can follow the coconut oil massage an hour later to restore hydration levels and balance skin texture .
4. Use Fuller’s Earth
Fuller’s earth or Multani mitti is an amazing way to remove color from the skin. Half a cup of Multani mitti soaked for an hour with four tablespoons of curd and applied to the face and neck can help you remove stubborn tones and undertones.
