Still on a quest for your Holy Grail product to banish all your beauty woes?
You may want to try out some potent homegrown products that are being appreciated by many. "Everyone should incorporate homegrown brands in their skincare regime mainly because most of these brands are organic, natural and work around the age-old remedies and concoctions from the Indian kitchens. These have been followed and passed down generations and work wonders for the Indian skin," says Sahee Wasan, founder of Mooibox.
She adds, "I totally love homegrown beauty products. Sadly, there are a few misconceptions surrounding many such products. Most people think local or homegrown new brands are not as promising or trustworthy. Local products work just as well as other products and at most times even better. Others think natural means expensive but that is the biggest misconception. Some of the local natural products work wonders and are not heavy on your pocket at all"
