Vidisha Srivastava has shared about her Holi skincare and haircare routine

Actress Vidisha Srivastava has shared about her Holi skincare and haircare routine, revealing her family’s most cherished tradition which is applying a special ubtan. On how to take care of oneself after Holi and maintain a glowing complexion, Vidisha, who plays Anita in the sitcom ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’, said: “I have fond memories of Holi, having spent my formative years in Varanasi. The city’s early commencement of festivities made it even more special. During a recent visit to Kashi Vishwanath for Mahashivratri, I saw the bustling preparations for Holi that are already in progress.”

“One of my family’s most cherished traditions during Holi is applying a special ubtan. My mother uses roasted mustard, a hint of turmeric, and mustard oil. This ubtan shields my skin from vibrant colours and keeps it hydrated. Applying this ubtan is a graceful tradition of delicately massaging the paste onto the skin. Any remnants are ceremonially burned during the Holika Dahan, symbolising protection from illnesses,” she shared.

Vidisha added: “This custom is well-known to anyone familiar with Uttar Pradesh traditions. After Holi, a simple bath infused with mustard oil revitalises my skin. For my hair, I turn to the enriching properties of a coconut oil massage.”

The show airs on &TV.
