Baby Couture is the best website for baby clothes in India, but since Holi is just around the corner, we would like to make our readers aware of some practical tips to take good care of their children. Children are super excited for Holi so that they can head out on the streets and play with their water guns and colors. It is essential to prepare beforehand to save your child from harmful reactions to colors and skin irritation.
Use organic colors
Provide your children with only organic colors like gulal or abir to play Holi with. These colors are natural, won’t irritate the skin, and are easily washable. Organic colors usually come in typical red, pink, yellow, green, and blue colors.
Colors like black, silver, and gold may look attractive, but they are made using heavy chemicals and damage the skin, and it will take weeks to clean them off thoroughly. If you are playing in a society, ensure that their guidelines say that no artificial colors are allowed.
Keep them Hydrated
Playing Holi is fun but also very tiring. Not only that, but they’ll also be feeding on a lot of oily foods and sweets, and if they are not hydrated, then they might suffer from constipation and gastric pain. So make sure they are drinking a lot of water during Holi.
To prepare your child to go out in the Sun and play Holi, apply sunscreen to their skin, especially to the skin that would be exposed to the Sun. Use sunscreen with low SPF suitable for children and also massage their ears and fingernails.
Use Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil is the best precaution to use before playing Holi. Give a gentle massage to your kids before sending them off to play Holi. You can give them a coconut oil massage covering their whole body, starting from hair & scalp, all the way to their feet. After applying sunscreen, you can also use coconut oil gently to their face.
The eyes are the most sensitive part of the body. If they are wearing glasses while playing Holi, they’ll be able to protect their eyes from Holi colors, colored water, and harmful UV rays.
Cover their Head
While they are going to play Holi, send them off with their head covered. Use a bandana or scarf to protect their hair without making them uncomfortable around the head.
Home Remedies to Remove Holi Colors
After your child is done with a memorable day of playing Holi and is back home, it’s time to get off all the Holi colors. Just having a bath won’t be enough. You can use ubtan; otherwise, you can take a bowl of curd and squeeze some lemon juice into it. Apply the mixture to the colored areas, and then let your child take a bath in lukewarm water. Using home remedies will help get rid of the Holi colors fast.
Dress them in Ethnic Clothes
After taking a bath, dress them in Ethnic clothes while you visit and greet your relatives. Don’t forget to click tons of pictures to make memories for their future. You can get the best kids' ethnic wear online from Baby Couture.
