Today, I’ve brought some easy tricks that will help you prevent and remove all those stubborn colors that stick to your skin and deepen the colors of Holi in your heart.
They say prevention is better than cure, and they say it right.

- Apply petroleum jelly to your nostrils to avoid breathing the dry colors.
- Apply nail paint to protect your nails from those nasty stains. Admit it, they doesn’t come off easily.
FOR THE AFTERMATH
Precautions aren’t everything to get rid of those obnoxious colors. The after holi treatment is just as important.
- Always use cold water to rinse off extra color to rinse your hair. When all the extra color is washed off, apply egg yolk or paste of fenugreek (methi) mixed with curd and olive oil to your scalp, leave it for 30-40 minutes and then wash your hair using a mild shampoo.
- Do not scrub the color off with soap. Opt for a mild cleanser and follow it up with a lot of moisturizing cream. If you feel any skin irritation during the process of taking off the colors, then take two tablespoons of calamine powder and mix it with a few drops of honey and rosewater to make a paste. Apply this on your face and once it has dried up, wash off with water and apply a moisturizer. You can also take off the color with a mixture of besan and milk.
- Also, you can rub lemon wedges on the areas of your face with color stains. Acetic acid in lemon will lighten the stains, and it will become easier for them to remove. Soak some mango powder in water, and scrub it on your face to get rid of stubborn colors.
