- Before you start with your makeup use Hydrating Creamy Facewash which will hydrate and softens your skin. Start with waterproof makeup because Navratri happens in October when humidity is at its peak and while doing the Garba you will sweat excessively so it is advised to go for waterproof makeup. It will help you keep your eyeliner, lipstick, and foundation in place. Don’t let the sweat or climate mess with your makeup.
- Apply light foundation whether you are going to be watching or you plan to play Garba all night long, it is always better to go for a light foundation.

- Do not forget to take proper measures to protect and care for your hair. It will suffer a lot due to the constant styling and spraying so you definitely want to save it from all the damage apply Hair Oil to Enhances luster, shine, and moisture. While we do Garba dance we often sweat a lot and we end up with an oily scalp. It’s very important to wash your hair and scalp thoroughly after you return from a sweaty session of Garba.
- Do remember to remove the makeup even though you are tired since the makeup will make your skin rough. Use skin-friendly makeup removers to keep your face acne-free. To prevent acne breakout use our Acne Squash Wash for pimple-free skin.
After coming home from Garba night, the first thing you need to do is clean your feet and have some water. Our feet should not be ignored. Wash your feet thoroughly with mild soap and warm water to get rid of all the dirt, especially if you have danced barefoot. No matter how tired you are, leaving your feet dirty may not be such a good idea. Being in the dirt and all the dancing will cause your feet to dry up as well. For that, you need to apply moisturizer, If your feet are not well moisturized the skin will begin to crack.
These are a few tips and precautions that you should follow so that you can gear up for the Navratri nights of fun and frolic. don’t let the festivities take a toll on our skin and feet because that may hamper the rest of the festival days. If you haven’t been doing anything then you must start by at least increasing the regular water intake for more stamina and a healthier body
