People have become more aware when it comes to adopting a healthy lifestyle, and therefore make a conscious effort when it comes to their eating habits and living choices, and now beauty and skincare as well.
We’ve seen a dynamic shift in the Pakistani beauty and skincare industry with a slew of young and promising brands and entrepreneurs with expertise to help men and women combat skin and hair concerns. While social media marketing does help, however, it is the effectiveness and credibility of the products that help them stay afloat.
Interestingly there is a divide amongst people, those who are comfortable using high-end skincare brands and those who trust local skincare brands. So we did a little research and have compiled a list of 5 local skincare brands to support, out of which, 2 are personally tries and tested.
FOOD FOR YOUR FACE
From organic face masks to essential hair oils, face scrubs, serums, cleansers, and face packs, Food For Your Face is an organic and luxury skincare brand (also with a line for HIM). Their products are packed with natural ingredients to give your skin that boost and glow! With clean and simple packaging, Food For Your Face does give highly effective results!
SCOOP O SCRUB
Scoop O Scrub offers a wide range of scrubs that are handcrafted for all your skin and hair needs. The fun and colorful packaging with off-beat tag names add to the presence of the brand in our local skincare industry. What started from bottling 10 jars of scrubs, Scoop O Scrub has a range of 30+ products that you can shop from and target problem areas when it comes to your skin and hair requirements.
Ps. We are personally in love with their Oh My Lash Serum!
QUBBLES – BATH & BODY
Qubbles aims to eliminate chemical-based products with their wide range of face, body and hair care products. They also have an organic makeup line, bath accessories, and a separate line for men, Qubbles Men, which we think is just awesome! The packaging is great, and very easy-to-use, and we love how the brand has a set of products to combat particular problems like their Niacinamide serum that combats skin congestion, acne, inflammation etc.
LE PUR ORGANICS
Le Pur Organics has grown into more than just a brand now, it’s like a mini-community of women who aim to spread awareness about skincare problems via discussions (which eventually led to the brand being profitable). Le Pur Organics is a luxury skincare brand with products that are handmade with love. From detox face masks to anti-ageing face oils and hair meals, we’d suggest that you give Le Pur Organics a try and experience luxury and the effectiveness for yourself.
We are bowled by their Salicylic Acid Cleanser and Salicylic Acid Pore Cleansing Emulsion by AccuFix Cosmetics. Salicylic acid is basically effective at treating blackheads and whiteheads while penetrating deep into the skin by dissolving the dirt and excess oil, leading to clear skin!
With minimal packaging and affordable prices, AccuFix Cosmetics has quickly become a favourite because of their product quality and effectiveness and the fact that the brand aims to help women with ACNE-PRONE SKIN.
