There are a number of oils that are easily available and that can be included in your Holi beauty regimen. All you need to do is raid your kitchen cabinet and your dresser drawer and sit down to start shielding your skin and hair from harm.
Here are some oils that you need to keep handy this Holi:
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil isn't just great for the heart and your weight, but it's also a valuable addition to your skin and hair care regime. It has essential vitamins and fatty acids that keep the skin and scalp nourished. Moreover, coconut oil comes in very handy when it comes to dis-entangling hair. A coconut oil 'chumpy' for your hair, face, neck and arms can go a long way in protecting you this Holi.

Apart from this, almond and mustard oils are two other commonly available oils that can be included in your hair and skin care regime, before and after Holi. Almond oil removes dandruff and scalp infection and can be gently massaged on skin and hair before they are exposed to Holi chemicals. Although mustard oil must not be directly massaged on the face for those who have a sensitive skin. Applying equal parts of mustard and coconut oil can actually improve skin tone.
