Mehndi

Mehndi is a form of temporary skin decoration popular in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.

woman-folk who has to work with ( muddy) water throughout the day while discharging domestic chores in rural India naturally get a kind of problem with the moisture related bacteria. Mehndi(prepared with some herbal leaves) works as a natural medicine which squeezes the moisture when applied to the palm or foot.Mehndi thus has both beautificational and medicinal values.That is why it is widely treated as a customary observation since ages in India.

Because of these anti-bacterial and anti-fungal effects of henna paste, mothers used to apply it to the hands and feet of their sons before they were about to do their military service in Turkey. In Turkey, besides, henna paste is applied to the palms of the boys that are to be circumcised.

No, it is not, according to the article, as it says: "Traditionally, mehndi adorns the skin of brides, and occasionally grooms, at their weddings.".
