Charcoal skin care has taken over the world. Whether you’ve seen it on social media, news outlets or even just through a friend, chances are you’ve heard of it.
But do you know what it does exactly? Well, feat not, we’re diving head first into the latest skin care craze to sweep the nation.
How Does a Charcoal Face Mask Work?
We won’t bore you with scientific stuff, but in short the toxins in your skin stick to the activated charcoal, making it an excellent detoxifier.
Alongside this, it doesn’t add a bunch of nasty chemicals to your face either, meaning your silky smooth skin won’t have its newly cleansed pores filled with anything unnatural.
What Can Charcoal Do for Your Skin?
It Purifies Your Pores
Pores are an everyday struggle. In modern times it’s impossible to avoid chemicals that clog up your skin and your pores in the process.
Activated charcoal binds to your pores and basically yanks out anything that may be congesting them.
Own That Oily Skin
Oily skin is annoying. Just a little bit of too much moisturizer and suddenly you’re back where you started, or not enough and it ends up being dry.
Applying some activated charcoal will help alleviate your oily skin problems by literally pulling the excess oil away from your face.
Alleviate That Acne
Acne is a constant, unyielding pain in the behind, and chances are if you’re an acne sufferer you’ve tried anything and everything to try and get rid.
Well, if you’re wondering what you can do next, why not try out some activated charcoal? The slightly gritty texture can help exfoliate your skin, while the oil and pore removing features can help sort out the rest.
If you’re reluctant to use it as an all over treatment, try applying to individual areas as it can be just as effective.
Deep Cleanse Your Skin
Finally, activated charcoal can be used simply as the refreshing cleanse that your skin needs and deserves.
We expose our faces to so many chemicals on a daily basis that we owe it to ourselves to do a deep clean every now and again, and what a better way than with an all-natural product?
And that’s exactly why you should jump on board this latest phenomenon! All natural, chemical free and easy to get your hands on.
