DIY Natural Face Masks For That Post-Holi Glow

Is there anyone who doesn’t like to play Holi? Well, we hope not. We rummage through our wardrobes for old clothes and oil our hair before we catch up with our group of friends or families over colours and delicious seasonal snacks. But regardless of all your beauty preparation, your skin and hair if exposed to colour will require extra attention long after you are done playing. Synthetic Holi colours can take a toll on your skin causing redness, and breakouts, among other things. When it comes to taking care of the skin post-Holi, it is advised that you stick to the natural method. Instead of exposing your skin to chemicals in the form of soaps and exfoliants, we have got you some effective DIY face packs to soothe your skin after a hearty session of Holi.

5 DIY Face Mask Recipes With Natural Ingredients To Use After Holi

1. Besan And Curd

Curd and besan are two ingredients you can easily find in your kitchen. This besan and curd face pack is an effective DIY method to nourish your skin. Mix 2 tablespoons of besan with 1 tablespoon of curd. Add some drops of rose water, mix it well and make a paste. Apply it and rinse once it dries.

Besan is a popular ingredient for the skin

2. Lemon And Curd

Want to get rid of the colour on your face? Lemon should be your pick. Known for its exfoliation properties, add 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice (diluted) to 1 tablespoon of curd. Apply the paste for 15 minutes and wash it off.

3. Turmeric Face Mask 

We are no strangers to the benefits of turmeric. Known for its skin-brightening properties, turmeric can be paired with water, curd or milk – whatever suits your skin – to prepare this face mask. Apply the turmeric mix on the affected area, leave it for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it.


Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and a natural bleach

4. Aloe Vera And Lemon 

While aloe vera is a natural moisturiser, lemon has cleansing properties that can help you get rid of the colour. Blend aloe vera extract with a spoonful of lemon juice to prepare a smooth paste. Apply the face pack and wash it after 10-15 minutes.

5. Orange Peel And Red Lentils 

Holi colours can trigger breakouts. So, pamper your skin with a face pack that treats acne. Grind dried-up orange peel and red lentils (masoor dal) into a powder. Add lemon juice and rose water to the powder and make a fine paste. Rub the mixture on your face gently and wash off with fresh water.
