2. Almond Oil: Almond oil can do wonders for your skin. The very first thing that you should do before playing Holi is to apply almond oil on your entire body. Almond oil is a rich source of vitamin E. It provides nourishment to the skin and acts as a protective layer between the skin and the colours. Apart from this, it also prevents the colours from sticking to the body.
3. Sunscreen: Due to the constant exposure to the sun, the risk of tanning increases. To avoid tanning, apply waterproof sunscreen moisturizer as it can protect your skin to a great extent.
