The festival of colors Holi is around the corner and while it’s all fun, remember that you need to take care of your skin and hair too.

Follow it up with a gentle facial massage with some coconut oil allowing it to sit on your face for a bit and wash off with a mild foaming face wash. Those with acne prone or oily skin can substitute oil with aloe vera gel.
