Prep your skin with aromatherapy for Holi
Naresh Arora, aromatherapist and beauty expert, says start skin care a week before Holi to avoid getting rashes or swelling.
“Add two drops each of tea tree and patchouli oils and half tea spoon Dead Sea salt in 250 ml water in an aluminium or glass spray bottle and shake well. Spray on your face and other body parts at least twice a day. This will help you immensely to prevent any skin allergies erupting on application of Holi colours,” Arora said in a statement.
Jojoba oil is also another option you can try.
“One teaspoon of jojoba oil mixed with one drop each of lavender or Neroli aroma oil along with tea tree oil can make a protective base before Holi festivities. Jojoba oil has the properties of the natural oils of our skin and shields the skin against chemicals and sunlight, while tea tree oil prevents allergies and lavender acts as soothing agent.
“Neroli Oil is a natural nervous soother and thus calms down the over stretched and stressed out nervous tissues,” he said.
