Kronokare Face Mist – Pollu-Stop

Our Urban lifestyle exposes our skin to millions of micro particles that directly enter the pores and damage the core of the skin. Pollution, dust, gas, carbon particles are the main reasons of skin ageing and dull complexion. These pollutants can also increase skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or other skin allergies.
Pollu-Stop creates a transparent and natural shield against pollution and decreases dramatically the particles invasion on the skin. The skin is immediately protected against pollutants, and they cannot enter the pores any longer. It also creates an invisible matrix of vitamins and essential nutrients that fight against skin ageing and soothe the skin, giving it a unique “soft touch”

RECOMMENDED FOR:

All skin types.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:

Active Vitamins and Essential Nutrients

Why are coffee scrubs a must try ??

Here let me increase your awareness about Coffee scrubs and why they are the latest “must-try” product of many natural skincare lovers. Since its main ingredient is caffeine or coffee powder ,which has some very interesting properties that make it an ideal ingredient for face and body scrubs like:

  • By applying to the skin in a gentle circular motion, coffee scrub exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and brightening the skin
  • Caffeine, the chemical stimulant in coffee, has antioxidant properties, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
  • Caffeine is also moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term by tightening and toning the skin, and improving blood circulation in the skin tissues.

Basic Ingredients & Benefits

  • Arabica coffee infusion & Ground Arabica Coffee: It It stimulates blood flow in the skin and also promotes circulation. The caffeine in it helps in reducing scarring, cellulite and stretch marks.Natural aromatic, Organic Arabica coffee offers a sweet molasses aroma, & exfoliates dead skin to promote healthy rejuvenation.
  • Organic Wild bee honey : Provides smooth & softer skin glowing like never before
  • Shea Butter
  • Organic Cane Sugar syrup : Helps to fight acne and protects skin from ageing

  • Aloe vera extract : Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema
  • Xanthum Gum :used in oil-in-water emulsions to help stabilize the oil droplets against coalescence, and has some skin hydrating properties.

Packaging: Its a heaving grainy liquid scrub packed properly in a tub like cute box, whihc offers its a clean look and makes it handy to carry anywhere. since its a pre-prepared material, we are just left with applying it using a spatula or brush. So easy to use too 🙂

My experience & recommendation:

Now that you know why Ryaal coffee scrub ingredients are the best, and what exactly you are applying on your skin, it’s now time to try it. Buy here

Way to use: I ensure to use it while showering, as it helps me to clean the stuff easily and takes less time. I start with applying it gently in circular motion on my face especially on my nose to clean the blackheads. 1 minute gentle massage is more than enough to get a nice scrubbing effect. Since I have dry & sensitive skin, so doesn’t prefer much of scrubbing. Post that, rinse it off well and now you can notice all the dull & dead skin cells are long gone now.The honey present in the product makes sure to moisturize my skin. My skin does not feel tight or stretchy. It’s all beautiful, soft & smooth.

If still you feel the need for moisturizer, please go ahead ! It’s definitely a great way to wake up and get ready for the day!

Always do a skin test before applying any product. Have mentioned about it in all my previous blogs. Do visit them and read again. After successful skin test  only, i would highly recommend this product for evening scrubs only twice a week. It will help you remove dirt and clean pores. Apply cream and take a beautiful sleep, which will help your skin blossom in morning.People with oily skin, can try it for small patch , and see if it suits them,then only go ahead.
