Your Post-Holi Survival Guide To Get Back On Track And Detoxify Yourself

The fun and cheerful time spent during Holi is undeniable with festive feasts like Thandai, Pakora, Phirni, Bhaang, Gujia, Ghewar, and the never-ending street food. And after spending an entire day in the outdoors under the hot sun playing with colors and water, the after-effects of those on our skin, feet, nails, and hair are not so good! One desperately seeks to get some relief and post care to bring back their old glow.

Here’s a guide to detoxify yourself post-Holi, that helps you get back on track and keep yourself in good shape:

  • Working out/ physical activity is important: You may be too tired from being in sun and in-outdoors, but you must ensure to go for brisk walks and workout to burn out all that you consumed in Holi. Working out could be in the form of yoga, walking, gym session or any activity that involves body movements; to ensure that our body is back to normal functioning and active. And working out also helps aid digestion and burn calories.

Working out

  • Add foods which are rich in protein: Consuming protein rich foods such as eggs, paneer, lentil, milk, yogurt, chicken, fish etc. that are loaded with protein is one of the best way to ensure you are eating right, as protein helps build immunity and keeps one feeling full for longer hours. One of the best ways to ensure you are consuming protein in right quantities during such times is to ensure that you fill at least ¼ of your plate with protein for each meal. Give yourself a break from highly processed foods that are sugar laden and contain high carbs.

Add rich in protein food

  • Drink enough water to stay hydrated: Drink enough water if you are looking to detoxify your body. Its best to hydrate yourself by drinking coconut water, fresh fruit juice, lemon, and ginger water to detoxify and cleanse your gut. Besides drinking enough water throughout the day keeps your energy levels high.

Drink enough water

  • Treat your skin and hair with essential oils: The struggle to get rid of color from your hair and skin is real. And the trick here is to apply coconut oil on your skin and hair, as they act as conditioning agents and help strengthen your roots and nourish your scalp. Don’t use harsh products and exfoliators as they might react to your skin due to sunburns from being out for too long. And lastly, using a hair serum helps in restoring balance and leaving your hair looking healthy and smooth.

  • Eat light but eat right! Since you have already stuffed yourself with food of all sorts that are high on calories, sugar, oily food, and salt during Holi, is it best to eat healthy home cooked meals that are rich in protein, low on carbohydrates, and high on fibers. Few home cooked meal options could be: Dal khichdi, Moong salad, vegetable soup, vegetable juice, fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in protein, and meets you daily nutritional value.
