All those starry-eyed years watching our mothers get dressed and waiting our turn to wield the lipstick, and we’re finally here – navigating the confusing, often contrived, world of beauty products. And as much as we’ve all hated our moms' incessant nagging, we made sure to keep one ear open – by tenure alone, the women know their stuff.
Much like their miraculous potions for curing every ailment in the book, our mothers raised us on strict regimen of beauty rituals, because otherwise, "Kaun shaadi karega?" Even though we just about tolerated the bitter spoons of karela juice, religious cleansing rituals and bad-smelling hair masks, we can’t help but look back with a little bit of irony. By the time 'Farm to Face’ beauty hit the industry, we’d already had the contents of our refrigerators emptied onto our faces, kind courtesy of our mothers.
In this editor-sourced piece, we’ve sifted superstition from science to bring you the best tried-and-tested beauty heirlooms, inherited from the wacky, wonderful women who raised us.
