Those harmful colours can play havoc on your sensitive skin and hair.

  • The very first tip includes applying sunscreen to your face at least 20 minutes before stepping out.
  • Apply copious amount of essential oils like coconut, olive and almond on your face and other body parts that will be attacked with harmful colours. Apply mainly around earlobes and nails as colours tend to settle there for too long.
  • Your hair need oiling too, so indulge in some good massage with coconut or olive oil and make your hair free from the harmful effects of colours
