Reap the Benefits of a Full Face of Charcoal

A bar of Charcoal is not the most glamorous way to beauty, I get it, but I suggest you get over it.

Like you, when I think coal, I think summer cookout, grill or fire, but that was until recently I learned how prominent activated charcoal is, as an ingredient in some of the best skincare products around.

It's been added to cleansers, face masks, toothbrushes, and even juices for its ability to absorb toxins and pollutants. So how does it work? Activated charcoal draws oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers making it a popular ingredient in face masks.

If you live in a big city, toxins from the atmosphere, oil and dirt may clog your pores. A weekly charcoal face mask pulls the dirt out of your pores. I personally prefer to double up with an exfoliator scrub for a deeper clean, and I find that my skin feels soft and my complexion, clearer, after using the Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips

I find that the activated charcoal pulls out excess oil, so even just once or twice a week is fine to remove excess oil if your skin is on the oily side.

In bruises and wounds, activated charcoal can help speed the healing and relieve the symptoms. For minor skin ailments’including insect bites, stings, cuts, scrapes and minor infections’activated charcoal can be applied topically, and when applied as a paste, it can help absorb venom and infection, and bring down swelling and lessen pain.

Which one of your products contain activated charcoal in them?
