March is the month we wait for the whole year! Why not? It is the month of Holi festival or the festival of colors. No doubt it is one of the most vibrant and most cheerful festivals of the world. Holi 2022 will be celebrated on March 19th. As Holi approaches and we start our festive shopping, it is important to watch out for colors loaded with synthetic pigments. These artificial substances can harm your skin, eyes and hair [1]. 

Another concern is that inhalation of these colors can affect your lungs. One of the most common conditions called allergic rhinitis occurs when you inhale these synthetic colors. You may even end up with a runny nose and continuous sneezing after Holi. That doesn’t mean you need to lock up yourself in a room and be away from all fun. All you need to do is prepare yourself with some pre- and post-Holi tips. Take some Holi precautions and opt for organic colors instead of synthetic ones. In order to get proper skin and hair care tips to turn Holi 2022 into a memorable day, read on. 

Happy Holi 2022
