Hello girls.. today m reviewing an astringent from ayur. I never had problem of acne but I have lots of blackheads on my nose. No matter how much I scrub my nose , blackheads keeps coming back. As usual I went back to my policy “prevention is better than cure”. Blackheads and whiteheads are caused due to secretion of sebum(oil) from the skin cells. This sebum blocks the pores of the skin . When this get oxidized in air, it turns in to black forming blackheads. And sometimes it remains non oxidized as whiteheads. Whiteheads are not visible on skin it just gives the rough texture to skin. Sometimes hair follicle , dust particles also clogs the pores and appears as blackheads.Ayur herbal astringent with aloe vera
Here are the uses of astringent
  • To prevent blackheads and whiteheads ,one has to keep the oil at bay. It prevents secretion of oil to a large extent. And remove excess oil on the skin surface .
  • Astringent is used to close the open pores on the skin .
  • it leaves the skin squeaky clean.
  • It balances PH of the skin
Toners can substitute for astringent but it fails in reducing oil secretion for oil skinned ones. Normal and dry skinned people can go for toners as it is mild.
Coming to the review, I have used rose water as a toner but it fails in reduction of oil secretion. So I bought the astringent and its herbal also . This became the plus point in buying the product.
The product comes in a sturdy ,transparent bottle. Which is leak free. The product is light blue or green in color. Its between blue and green. It has the consistency of water. Its fragrance is like aloe vera and cucumber.
