Cleansing is the first, and most important step in any skincare routine.
It helps to remove all traces of dirt and grime from your pores, which prevents blackheads from manifesting and ensures that your follow up skin care products are readily received; your open pores will eagerly drink them up!
Of course the type of ingredients you use to cleanse your skin matters, and charcoal has to be one of our absolute favorites!
Charcoal was traditionally used in medicine, thanks to its ability to attract harmful toxins from the body and expel them. This made charcoal the go to ingredient for helping to combat alcohol poisoning and drug overdoses.
Activated charcoal has the ability to absorb 1000 times its own weight in toxins! This is great news for your skin but we’ll get to that in just a second!
Before you become best friends with those lumps of coal you use for barbecuing, we should let you know that activated charcoal has gone through a thorough cleaning process to ensure it’s safe to use on your skin.
The charcoal you are familiar with is also first heated with a gas to make it more porous. This allows toxins to bind to it and it is now known as activated charcoal.
Due to activated charcoal’s incredibly high absorption and antibacterial properties, it provides a deep down cleanse like no other, making it ideal for oily skin types! It helps to pull dirt up and out from deep down in the pores, leaving your skin perfectly balanced and clear as it also helps to balance sebum levels.
Before you dismiss it as just for troubled skin types, you may want to keep on reading!
Activated charcoal also helps to boost blood flow, promoting the formation of collagen for healthier, firmer skin with an instant luminous glow, making it ideal for dry, mature skin types too.
