Holi is just round the corner and tickles the kid inside us. It’s so nostalgic to remember good old childhood days when holi used to start a week prior to the actual day. As a kid we used to be so excited to use water, colour and be messy officially. Throwing water balloons and colours on friends and strangers was so much fun. Getting our faces painted in red and blue and the remains of the same the very next day to the school was a sign of how enjoyable the holi was. In our times, the colours used to be non-toxic or less toxic so we were carefree while using them. However mom used to take good care of us by oiling our hair and body so that colour didn’t penetrate the skin and hair. Our post holi bath water used to be warm followed by generous miniaturization of the skin. Today where there is so much adulteration in food and other materials of basic necessity.

Apply nail paint onto your fingers and toe nails. This will protest your nails. Guys can apply transparent nail paint. Wear a sunglass to protect your eyes from misfire of water jets, colours etc. Wear old clothes which do not require immediate washing, or which you can discard post holi.
