Pre & Post Holi Skincare Tips by Perenne Cosmetics

Holi can be a lot of fun, but it's important to take care of your skin during the festivities to avoid any irritation or damage. Here are some tips for skincare during Holi:

1. Pre-Holi Preparation:

Moisturize: Begin with moisturizing your skin a few days before Holi. Apply Perenne moisturizing cream. This will help create a protective barrier against harsh colors.

Nail Care: Apply a thick coat of nail polish to protect your nails from staining. You can also trim your nails short to minimize color accumulation.

Oil Your Hair: Apply Perenne Hair strengthening oil to your hair and scalp. This will prevent colors from sticking to your hair and making them easier to wash off later.

Wear Protective Clothing: Cover as much of your skin as possible with long sleeves, pants, and a hat to minimize direct contact with colors.

2. During Holi:


• Choose Natural Colors: Opt for natural and eco-friendly colors made from flowers, herbs, or vegetables. These are gentler on the skin and easier to wash off.

Protect Your Face: Apply a thick layer of moisturizer or sunscreen on your face before stepping out to play Holi. You can also use a scarf or bandana to cover your face.

Avoid Rubbing: Instead of rubbing vigorously to remove color, gently pat your skin with a soft cloth dipped in warm water and mild soap.
• Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from within.

3. Post-Holi Care:

• Rinse Off Thoroughly: After playing Holi, rinse off the colors with lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water as it can dry out your skin further.

Use Mild Cleansers: Use a gentle cleanser Like Perenne Nourishing cleansing oil and hydrating facewash to remove any residual color from your skin. Avoid harsh soaps or scrubs that can strip away natural oils.

Moisturize: Apply Perenne moisturizing cream and Hydrating body lotion to replenish moisture lost during Holi. These products provide good hydration and replenish lost moisture from skin.

Take a Lukewarm Shower: Take a lukewarm shower to further remove any remaining color and refresh your skin. Avoid using abrasive scrubbing tools or exfoliants immediately after Holi, as your skin may be sensitive.

4. If Irritation Occurs:

• If you experience any irritation or allergic reactions after playing Holi, apply a soothing lotion to the affected areas.
• Avoid scratching or rubbing irritated skin, as this can worsen the condition. If the irritation persists, consult a dermatologist for further advice.

By following these skincare tips, you can enjoy a safe and colorful Holi while keeping your skin healthy and protected.


Making your own Holi colors at home can be a fun and eco-friendly activity. Here are some simple DIY recipes for creating natural and safe colors:

Yellow Color:

Red Color:

For dried hibiscus flowers: Crush dried hibiscus flowers into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle. Sieve the powder to remove any large particles.
For beetroot: Grate fresh beetroot and allow it to dry completely. Once dried, grind it into a fine powder.

For spinach leaves: Boil spinach leaves in water until the color transfers to the water. Allow the water to cool, then strain it and let it dry to obtain green color powder.
Mix the chosen ingredient with water to form a paste or grind it into a fine powder for dry application.

Blue Color:
