The next time you go shopping for beauty products, make sure you pick at least some of these stylist favourites, says Jagruti Verma
Every once in a while, we find one product we love to hoard. These products often find themselves mentioned in conversation, added to already overflowing shopping lists and they become our go-to recommendations when people ask for our beauty secrets. So, what products do beauty gurus swear by? We asked three experts to give us their favourites.
FOR FEEL GOOD SKIN
Dr. Madhuri Agarwal, founder and medical director of YAVANA Aesthetics Clinic, recommends two products — ZO Oclipse sunscreen and Sebamed Clear Face cleansing foam. She says that the sunscreen is a must as it prevents tanning and discolouration. Also, since it already includes a primer, it gives your skin a soft finish and evens out your skin tone. She tells us that it leaves you with a silky feel and because it is light weight, you won’t even feel it. As for the cleansing foam, she says that it easily clears up the oil, whiteheads and mild acne without drying out your skin and adds that it is a favourite among her teenage patients!

SORTING OUT YOUR MAKEUP
Dr. Apratim Goel, dermatologist and laser surgeon at Cutis Skin Studio, recommends Instafil Gel. She tells us that this silicon based peptide gel rejuvenates your skin, nourishing it and locking in moisture at the same time. This gel is a superb primer, working its magic by filling in your pores and smoothening out your skin to give it an even texture. Applying makeup over it is easy and helps it stay put for longer. It also acts as a barrier that protects your skin from pollution and grime. The product is the perfect pick for people of all ages, and it isn’t very expensive either!

GO FRIZZ FREE
Adhuna Bhabani, founder and creative director at BBLUNT, recommends BBLUNT’s Climate Control Anti-frizz Leave-in Cream. She tells us that she loves it because it is a versatile product that not only protects your hair, especially when you are using heated tools, but also enhances its natural movement. (Yes, this means you can flip your hair with even more confidence!) The enriched quinoa in the cream will help your hair repair itself and allow hassle-free wet-and-dry combing. Its SPF properties will serve as a shield for your hair against the sun’s harmful rays. If you have humidity woes (who doesn’t!), the product’s climate control action will help you get the perfect, frizz-free locks that you desire.
