Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Vidya Balan Give Holi Skincare Tips
DEEPIKA AND SHRADDHA WILL CELEBRATE HOLI ON THE SETS OF TAMASHA AND ABCD2RESPECTIVELY
Bollywood actresses Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Kriti Sanon share their plans for Holi festivities and give out tips for having a colourful blast without damaging one’s skin and hair.
Although the festival is about colours, taking care of one’s skin and hair cannot be ignored.
Vidya Balan, who will play Holi “with friends” this year, says her “fondest memory” of the festival dates back to the time when she used to fill up balloons with her father. (Also Read: What Are Bollywood Actors Doing on Holi?)
“My fondest memory is that of my father filling balloons with water early in the morning. We’d go up to the terrace and throw balloons at each other,” Vidya said in a statement.
The Dirty Picture actress’s favourite Holi song is Rang barse and Ab ke saawan.
Talking about her modus operandi on the day of Holi, she said, “Before Holi I make it a point to OIL religiously and protect my hair from the colours and the dust. Even for skin I apply oil so that there are less chances of the colour staying back on my skin.”
While Vidya is religious about oiling her hair and skin, Deepika isn’t much different either as she too uses coconut-based oil for protection against colours and dust.
“I usually massage my hair with coconut-based hair oil. It not only protects my hair from the harsh colours and chemicals but also provides nourishment,” Deepika said.
“For my skin, I moisturise well and use sun screen before I set out to play Holi. This helps me in removing the colour from my skin more easily and protection from the sun,” she added.
The festival has been one of Deepika’s favourite since childhood but due to commitments to her films, it’ll be a “working Holi” for her.
“I am shooting for Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani so we may play Holi on the sets. This year will be a working Holi for me,” she said.
Talking about her favourite Holi song, the actress said, “I know they are my own songs but I have to admit that Balam pichkari and Lahu muh lag gayaare my current favourite.”
Shraddha, whose favourite Holi memory used to be joining the mega-bash at Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s house on the festival, will celebrate this Holi with her upcoming film ABCD2 crew.
Like Deepika, Shraddha also considers Balam pichkari as her favourite Holi song.
Speaking about hair and skin care for the festival, she said, “A ritual I have been following since years is applying adequate oil on my hair – given that colours are bound to damage my hair. Pre-Holi, I make sure to moisturise my skin well.”
Heropanti actress Kriti Sanon, who is set to celebrate her first Holi after her Bollywood debut, will be celebrating the occasion with her family and considers Rang barse as her “universal Holi anthem”.
