What to Avoid?
Don’t Use Synthetic Colours

Limit Your Drinks
Thandai & sweet gujiya is the most popular food combination on Holi. While it’s an important part of Holi, it’s advisable that you take it in moderation. No matter how delicious is your Thandai powder drink is or the flavoursome sweet gujiya are, you don’t want to wake up feeling heavy and hungover the next morning, especially if it’s a working day. You can replace your snacks with healthy choices like organic coffee oats.
Don’t Use Metallic Colours
Metallic colours harm your skin and hair because of the chemicals they are made of. It’s best to avoid them and keep your kids away from them.
Don’t Play With Anything Other Than Colours
The safest thing to play Holi with is organic colours. Mud, eggs, and anything other than colours are not recommended. They can harm your skin. It’s best to stick to organic colours.
These were Holi’s do’s and don’ts for this year. Hope you have a safe and fun Holi.
