How to remove Holi colours from face

You can also use multani mitti treatment as it will help dry off the colour and eventually remove it after rinsing.
To remove the itchiness of the skin, apply a combination of glycerine and rosewater.
Use soaked amchur powder and avoid excessively washing your face as it can lead to drying.
How to remove Holi colours from nails
Holi colours can make the nails brittle and dull, therefore, soak your nails in cold water.
After playing Holi, the nails eventually start becoming yellow. To avoid this, you need lemon juice. Soak your nails in lemon juice for 10 minutes.
Apply a coat of transparent nail polish and dunk your fingers into a bowl of lukewarm water. Add a few drops of almond oil and the colour will slowly come off easily.
Before you step out to play Holi, apply a coat of dark nail polish. Dark nails do not allow the colour to stick to the nails.
