  2. Apply moisturizer all over the body that will prevent you from the harsh chemical based colours.
  3. Apply the thick coat of Vaseline around your ears so that you don’t look like a pink monster after Holi.
  4. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen as you will be in the sun for the full day (so it will help you from tanning).
