New Delhi , Mar. 12 : Bura na mano holi hai., said Reena and ran away smearing a fistful of artificial colours on her sister's face.
Reena could have never imagined the after-effect this little prank would have on her sister's skin.
The festival of Holi can be a nightmare for people who are allergic to colours. While a couple of measures can be taken beforehand to prevent the skin from any damage, artificial colours can be nasty and can take time to leave your skin.
While a few like to protect themselves from the harsh colours and chemicals, fewer still, pay any heed to the potential skin damage before setting out to have fun.
Most of the inorganic colours have harmful chemicals that can cause allergies, reddening of the skin and burning sensation. Therefore, in order to usher in the festival of colours with pomp and celebration, it is essential to make sure that your skin comes out of the colour explosion perfectly fine.
Instead of scrubbing too much soap or heading to a beauty salon to get rid of the stubborn colours, this Holi, try your hand at Dead Sea Minerals that are high on magnesium, sodium and potassium, says Manisha Chopra, Co-Founder, SeaSoul Cosmeceuticals.
Dead Sea salts can act as an effective exfoliating agent and cleanser. To remove the stubborn colours, try out the dead sea facial mud mask that is loaded with essential ingredients such as Moroccan Argan oil, plant stem cells, noni fruit, goji berries, dead sea minerals, squalane, Aloe Vera, grape seed oil, sodium hyaluronate and Glycerin.
They dramatically help to clear the skin of all impurities and give a transformative effect on the face. Dead Sea Minerals help to get rid of the nasty colours and let you gain back smooth and healthy skin.
The products infused with Dead Sea salts are gentle and safe for all skin types as they are free of parabens and sulphates. Several medical journals have long exalted Dead Sea mud's ability to promote radiance as well as its other therapeutic benefits for chronic skin conditions.
A facial polish works amazingly to get rid of the Holi colour as it removes the dead skin which has colours and then polishes the skin and cleanses the skin removing off the Holi colours. After removal of the colour, apply Dead Sea mud mask.
After removing the mask, apply Vitamin C serum to save your skin from after effects of Holi colours.
According to researchers, the Dead Sea water consists of 32% salts with a relatively high concentration of 21 minerals such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. The calcium present in the Dead Sea salt helps to cleanse pores and soothes and relieves the skin cells.
Magnesium works as an anti-allergic agent and boosts the metabolism of cells. The bromide present in the salt heals and relieves skin disorders and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Sodium Chloride nourishes and hydrates skin cells and removes toxic waste, improving its permeability. Zinc promotes the natural regulation of cell growth and regeneration. It also aids in cell renewal and stimulates collagen and renews skin.
A great antioxidant, this mineral is a free-radical scavenger. It also improves anti-acne properties, anti-inflammatory properties and is a natural UV-rays blocker.
Thus, this Holi, steer clear of any rashes or breakouts on your skin as a result of stubborn colours and opt for miraculous Dead Sea products and play Holi stress-free.
Dead Sea salts can be found in facial care products such as cleansers, toners, moisturizers and masks. Avail the benefits of the wonderful minerals present in the Dead Sea and get ready to celebrate Holi to the fullest.
