Holika Dahan, also known as Chhoti Holi, signifies the victory of good over evil. It is celebrated on the full moon day and the next day people gather and play Holi by applying colors to each other. Holi is a festival of colors, people play with colors or gulal. Different types of real and chemical gulal are available in the market, but it is difficult to differentiate between the two. Buying chemical-rich gulal on Holi has a direct effect on your skin.

Many adulterated colors are available in the market at very cheap prices and some of the colors are sold by claiming their authenticity. Let us tell you that substances like diesel, engine oil, copper sulfate, and lead are mixed in chemical gulal which are harmful to our skin. This can cause problems like dizziness, headache, and shortness of breath. The use of herbal colors is very good for your skin.


For your information, let us tell you that when you go to buy colors on Holi, keep some important things in mind. Smell the colors first, if you smell chemical or petrol-like colors from the colors then don't buy them. Avoid buying silver, dark purple, or black colors, as they contain more adulteration.
