It might not be your first stop, but your local chemist is actually a veritable treasure chest of trustworthy, safe and cost-effective beauty finds. Need a hyaluronic acid product under Rs 300 or a sunscreen that you can wear every day? You’ll find it in these aisles. If you’re too impatient to wait for an online delivery, and can’t make it to beauty stores in malls yet, your drugstore is the next best thing. Here are the best products you can shop for now, for everything you might possibly require.
You’re re-upping your sunscreen needs
Even when you’re spending more time at home, wearing sunscreen is a must-have, never-skip product. This tube is easily available, and provides effective broad spectrum protection against UVA and UBV rays. Because it is fortified with chemical blockers, it works against the blue HEV light emitted by devices too. The light gel spreads easily, so you won’t even feel it on your face (even in the most humid weather).
You need a safe at-home exfoliant
You don’t need a fancy toner or peel to do the job—glycolic acid is a great AHA that breaks down the glue between skin cells and encourages better cell regeneration. The thick cream has a moisturising base, so you won’t find the irritating and peeling that other exfoliating agents can cause in the early stages of application.
