Mahendi is auspicious for festivals, but is it safe for your skin?

“Mahendi plays an important part of wedding rituals not only for that also the other festivals in India.”


A festival like Karwa Chauth where a women gets their palm and feet decorated beautifully with those amazing designs. But here the question arises,” Is it safe for your skin?”


We people have painted an image, think about the Karwa Chauth the image comes as beautifully decorated mehndi hands and traditionally dressed up women. Right? A day-long fast is observed by the married Hindu women on this eve, which falls on 24 October this year. Mahendi looks beautiful but when it fades it makes your skin rough and dry.


Women mostly complain about the irritation of the skin, redness and peeling of the skin along with the henna from the hands. Our ancestors use henna leaves and the proper way to henna comes out from the hand is that the colour of the henna fades over days or it takes weeks. Now, adultered henna is in the markets and we are using it as it results in certain reactions and side effects of the chemicals.


“Some people have allergies to Mehendi” the statement is given by Dr Rinky Kapoor, consultant dermatologist and dermato- dungeon, the Esthetic clinics.


“Avoid using mahendi’s where it contains ammonia and PPD chemicals where it will only damage hair and skin but henna is safe to use only if you purchase100% natural henna. Before buying check out the manufacturing date on the packets, the fresher it is the better is the vibrance of the colours. Chemical ridden Mehendi fades quickly and it causes allergic reactions to both the skin and hair.” stated Dr Rinky Kapoor.
We saw the allergic sides of the henna now let us have a look on the positive side as well only if you folks want to have the best pure henna results.
