 Make It a Healthy Holi

The festival of colours, Holi, is indeed a source of great fun and joy. To ensure a safe and healthy holi, it is important to use colours which are non-toxic.

Synthetic colors that are available in abundance during this festival contain chemicals like acids, powdered glass, metals and alkalis, which make it toxic.

The famous gulal contains silicate, black paint contains lead oxide, green colours contain copper sulphate , and silver contains aluminium.

Experts advice the use of eco-friendly and natural colours in order to have a healthy Holi.

Holi revelers must take note of the following guidelines in order to have a healthy Holi. It is good to apply olive oil on the hair, and apply Vaseline on the face and hands. Use glasses to protect the eyes, and preferably use derma shield on the skin. Use a moisturizing soap to wash off the colours, and seek immediate medical attention incase of any irritation.
