Its Holi! Dipped in hues of love and trust has come the festival of Holi. Holi is a special time of the year to remember those who are close to our hearts with splashing colours. Holi is a spring festival celebrated in India. It’s a festival of colours and festival of love. Holi is essentially a three-day street party-slash-water balloon fight. In cities there are places which are meant for Holi, which has flea markets, music, dance and colours. Holi has its origin from the Hindu mythology where Prahlada defeats a demon named holika. It defines the victory of good over evil.
Some general tips for Holi:
If you want to stay clean do not play, stay home. If you look like you’re not from the area you’ll be targeted.
Dress accordingly. Expect the clothes you’re in to be completely ruined. I’d suggest a white outfit.
Get used to looking bad. The colour on your face doesn’t wash off easily, so expect yourself to look funny for the next few days.
Use a waterproof camera if you’re clicking pictures. Make sure you handle the gadgets carefully.
Some beauty and skin care tips:
Apply coconut oil on your body so that the colour does not penetrate your body.
Apply sunscreen if you’re getting exposed to sunlight. If you’ve to stay out for longer apply them once in three hours.
Apply nail paint and remove it after playing Holi.
Wear sunglasses or even normal glasses. The eyes are extremely sensitive to chemicals, so sunglasses help protect your eyes from chemicals.
Makeup tips :
Wear a thick layer of bold lipstick (preferably red). Wear colourful makeup. Apply some foundation so that it doesn’t allow the colour to stay on the face. It prevents the colour from penetrating through your skin. Avoid accessories.
Take care of these measures and have a colourful Holi.See you again in my next post, until then “Let the colours of Holi spread the message of peace and happiness.
Stay happy and keep smiling. Lots of love.
