Holi is fun, but can have harmful effects on your skin and hair.
We all love Holi , it is finally that time of the year when there are colours everywhere, Thandai, Gujjiya, Water Blloons, Gulaal, Singing and dancing .
We all love to play with different Holi colours. But are we aware, that this happiness comes with its own set of issues like dry and frizzy hair, pimples and breakouts caused by the blatant use of artificial colours made with the help of chemical solvents and toxic agents.
They contain chemicals, shiny particles of mica and even lead, which not only irritates the skin but also collects on the scalp.
Since Holi is played outdoors, exposure to the sun can have a detrimental effect on the skin. Apart from harmful UV radiation, sun-exposure makes the skin dry by causing depletion of moisture and also tans the skin.
Take a look at some simple skin and hair care tips that can be used before, during and after playing holi:
