The Surprising Skin Care Benefits Of Activated Black Charcoal Posted on 07 Aug 15:03
What are the two words that pop into your mind when you hear the word charcoal?
We bet it isn’t skin care.
Charcoal and skin care are usually two words that do not go together. But, when they do, something amazing happens.
Activated black charcoal boasts a wide variety of beauty benefits for your skin and when you start incorporating it into your weekly beauty regimen, your skin will thank you.
What Is Activated Charcoal?
One of charcoal’s unique properties is its ability to absorb up to a thousands times its weight in harmful substances.
Activated charcoal is created when regular charcoal is heated. This causes the charcoal to expand and makes an absorbent surface that helps trap toxins.
When activated charcoal attaches to a surface, it starts to soak up foreign chemicals. It has an incredibly large surface area.
In fact, just five grams of activated charcoal has the surface area to cover a whole football field.
This is why even the smallest amount of activated charcoal can absorb lots of toxins and impurities.
Why Is It Good For My Skin?
When activated black charcoal binds to your skin- magic starts to happen.
The charcoal starts working hard to draw out bacteria, dirt and foreign chemicals that are stuck deep in your pores.
Having a buildup of dirt, oil and bacteria in your pores is what leads to breakouts, blackheads and large pores.
Activated charcoal’s absorbing power detoxifies and cleanses your skin leaving you with a fresh clean face and glowing complexion after each use.
In return this helps reduce breakouts and reduces the size of your pores.
The best part about activated charcoal is that it contains all natural ingredients and when you use it, you won’t be adding any harmful chemicals to your skin.
