Pre & Post Holi Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin

Holi, the festival of colours, is just around the corner, and we all love celebrating it with our friends and family. However, while the festival is fun and exciting, it can take a toll on our skin, leaving it dry, itchy, and prone to breakouts. So, to help you keep your skin healthy and glowing during and after the festivities, we have compiled a list of pre- and post-holi skincare tips for glowing skin you can follow. 

Pre & Post Holi Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin 

Let us look at these best tips for glowing skin you can incorporate during Holi.  

Pre Holi Skincare Tips 

1. Slather on the SPF 


The first and foremost step and one of the most important skin care tips for glowing skin to protect your skin from the harsh sun rays and during Holi is to slather on a good sunscreen cream with at least SPF 30. We recommend the Ponds Serum Boost Sunscreen Cream SPF 55, which protects your skin and boosts its radiance. It comes with the power of niacinamide-C serum and SPF that gives brighter even tone glow, protects from blue light and pollution. 

2. Cover pores and textured areas of the face with a blurring primer  


To prevent the colours from seeping into your pores and textured areas of the face, it's essential to apply a blurring primer. The Lakmé Unreal Blur Perfect Primer is perfect for this, as it smoothens out your skin and gives it a flawless finish. Its silky blur formula instantly brightens, primes, softens blemishes and pores and creates a smooth skin surface. 

3. Use a spot patch on open acne 

If you have any open acne or pimples, it's best to cover them up with a spot patch. The Simple Daily Skin Detox Spot Patch is an excellent option as it helps to heal acne while protecting it from the colours. It helps absorb excess oil, sebum and promotes faster soothing of pimples and bumps.  

4. Use nourishing lip balm for your lips 


Remember to protect your lips from the sun and colours as well. A nourishing lip balm like Vaseline Lip Tin, Original Care, can help keep your lips moisturised and prevent chapping. It contains Petrolatum jelly that helps moisturize dry lips and keep them soft. 

Post Holi Skincare Tips 

Now that you know about the pre-Holi tips for healthy and glowing skin, let us take a look at how to take care of your skin post-Holi.  

1. Do double cleansing 


Once the festivities are over, removing all the colours from your skin is crucial. We recommend using the combination of Lakmé Micellar Water and Pond's Bright Beauty Foaming Brush Facewash for glowing skin. The micellar removes all the makeup and impurities, while the facewash cleanses your skin and gives it a radiant glow

2. Scrub away the colours 


After cleansing your skin, it's time to scrub away all the colours and impurities. The Simple Daily Skin Detox Clear Pore Scrub is perfect, as it gently exfoliates your skin and removes all the dirt and grime. It cleanses deep down to help eliminate pore-clogging dirt, oil and make-up to leave skin purified. Blended with thyme, zinc and witch hazel, it gives you smoother and clearer skin in just 1 use. 

3. Apply a hydrating serum 


Once your skin is clean and free of colours, it's time to hydrate it. A hydrating serum like Simple Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Booster Face Serum is perfect for this, as it moisturises your skin and keeps it plump and healthy. It supercharges the skin with triple Hyaluronic Acid, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Pentavitin for 72 hours deep hydration that doesn’t wash away. The multi-vitamin infusion provides instant 72 hrs hydration, promotes soft and smooth skin, and gives youthful soft skin that’s plump from within. 

4. Apply a hydrating mask 

We recommend using a hydrating sheet mask like Lakmé Skin Solutions Sheet Mask - Hydrating to further boost your skin's hydration. The mask will provide extra hydration to your skin and leave it feeling soft and supple. Infused with 95% pure hyaluronic acid and pentavitin, it gives you supple and hydrated skin. 

5. Nourish the lips 

Remember to take care of your lips after the festivities. Use a lip scrub followed by a lip mask to remove dry and chapped skin. This will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth. 

6. Keep the body moisturised 


Lastly, it's essential to keep your body moisturised after the festivities. We recommend using Vaseline Gluta-Hya Dewy Radiance Serum-In-Lotion, which hydrates your skin and helps to reduce the causes of dull skin. Boosted with GlutaGlow technology, which is 10X more powerful than Vitamin C, it boosts skin's natural radiance

These pre and post-Holi skin care tips can help you keep your skin healthy and glowing during and after the festivities. Remember to stay hydrated, eat a healthy diet, and get enough rest to ensure your skin looks its best. Happy Holi!
