Here’s a throwback for you!
Remember that last-minute rush of packing the night before travelling, when you’re trying to stuff everything in a bag or suitcase which is already full, and your flight is in a few hours? Then you head to the bathroom to pack your toiletries and you don’t know what to take and what to leave behind. Slightly iffy, you pack a face wash, skip the moisturizer, hope there’ll be shampoo at the hotel, deliberate on the hairstyling gel, and just hastily put together whatever fits.
Or you’re heading out for a weekend trek, and you only have a backpack. You scout for all multifunctional products at your disposal but somehow travelling light with your skincare essentials is a baffling idea!
Welcome to the dilemma of our lives bordering along the lines of an existential crisis – what to pack, what to not carry, what to buy, why can’t there be one thing that fits all our needs! Well, we heard you. And here’s introducing you to the elixir of our skin and hair care routines, a modest succulent huddled in a corner of your balcony which does more than enhancing the overall aesthetic vibe of a
corner – Aloe Vera.
