2020 has been a rough year for most of us, be it mentally, physically or financially. It has also been a year where we have paid more attention to self-care. While most of us spent our days in pajamas with no makeup and a top-knot, we also enjoyed our haircare and skincare products. For Indians, it was the year when #vocalforlocal became the logo of the year, and we realized that we need to support our homegrown, small businesses. Keeping all of this in mind, I am sharing my best skincare and haircare discoveries from the year. All of these are products from Indian brands, most of which are small scale startups and many of which are founded by women. I hope that you find some great products for yourself in this list and support these businesses in 2021!
