Fact: in the blistering heat that comes with tropical summer, talcum powder is a great way to sweat-proof your bod. And that happens to be just one of its many uses. Because talc absorbs moisture and helps reduce friction, it's also popularly used as a tool to prevent rashes, like the kind that appear with wince-inducing chafing thighs. Still more? Talc can also be used for a variety of beauty hacks, like de-greasing an unwashed scalp, or volumizing lashes before applying mascara (we recommend you use baby powder for this). No matter what your concern, the 9 best talcum powders in India, ahead.
