Holi 2018: Tips for a healthy and safe Holi this year


Holi is a festival of fun, frolic, colors and merry making, as it's a celebration of everything that's lively and youthful. On the other hand, a lot of people also indulge in activities which aren't really safe and healthy. Holi is no exception to this. In fact, it's one of the most important Hindu festivals and is celebrated with much fanfare by the community, across the world.

Here are some tips you must keep in mind to celebrate a safe and healthy Holi:

1.  Check your khoya for purity

Mixed khoya and mawa are unfortunately common in the market during Holi season. Make sure you test these ingredients for purity before you put them in sweets.

2.  Wash your hands every time you touch food

Since a lot of the Holi colors are in the form of fine powders, they often tend to get mixed up in boxes of dry fruits, nuts and sweets that you put out for guests. Make sure you keep your food covered and also wash your hands properly every time you reach for that plate of goodies. One more important thing to remember is to prevent excessive wastage of water.

3. Use natural homemade colors only

Store-bough Holi colors may harm your skin and hair. Try and make natural colours from flowers like marigold and kitchen ingredients like sandalwood and turmeric.

4. Use Kitchen ingredients to remove color

Avoid using harsh chemical shampoos and soaps to get rid of color from your skin. Use ingredients like wheat flour powder and lemon to gently remove the colors.

5. Drink plenty of water

You might get dehydrated due to all the running around and chasing your friends that you is likely to do. Since Holi falls in a summer month, it's essential that you drink enough water.
