Holi is a special celebration.
When I was young we used to play Holi in our neighbourhood .At Medical College I played Holi.I had emergency duty on Holi at Medical College and I played Holi with my little girl who just turned five.
It’s always fun when you play with friends and family .But the fun shouldn’t be at the cost of your safety.
Take care of your skin ,hair eyes and ears and what you eat and drink.
Before going out to play Holi :
I oiled her hair and mine and put moisturizer and sunscreen to both our exposed skin.Hubby being hubby uses nothing.Covered up as best I could .I kept the contact lenses at home.Put on my glares ,lipstick on and I was ready to go.
After coming back copious amount of warm water ,body wash and shampoo .Used a conditioner for my hair and an after bath moisturizer.My skin breaks out with any irritant so even though the organic abir didn’t burn,itch or sting ,I used lacto-calamine lotion .It’s great to cool the skin and soothe itchy skin.
Personal safety :
At all times me or hubby were with our daughter .Before playing ground rules were set.We used only organic colour. That’s why most of it was easily washed off.
No colour in eyes or ears.This is very important .
No water filled balloon to be thrown at ears .It can cause problems in the ear drum including hearing loss!
No playing with strangers.This is obvious at all festivals.No talking to strangers!
No food to be taken which is not offered by mommy or daddy without permission.
We had a Happy and safe Holi .How was your Holi?This is my Monday Mommy Moments post on the prompt.
