Glow Through the Colours: Your Essential Holi Skincare Guide!

Spread the love

Bengaluru: It’s that time of the year again, when the hues beckon but it often leaves our skin exposed to various elements that can lead to dryness, irritation, and damage. As the streets come alive with Holi we invite you to indulge in a skincare routine that keeps your skin looking fabulous throughout the festivities. But the onslaught of colours, long hours in the sun, colour-infused water, and the heat can wreak havoc on your skin if not taken care of with a proper prep routine before as well as after the festival.

Let us take you through the most important thing – Pre & Post Holi Skincare by our top picks this season-
