Activated charcoal is a form of carbon known for its absorption qualities.
Commonly used in healthcare for years, the ingredient is now all the rage in the beauty industry as it has been found to benefit the skin in many ways.
Here are five reasons why you should incorporate activated charcoal in your daily skincare routine:
1) Activated charcoal detoxifies your skin
Activated charcoal is usually recommended for medicinal use. If you have an upset stomach, a moderate intake can absorb the toxins in your stomach.
Similarly, activated charcoal can absorb the toxins in your skin without any harsh side effects.
Thanks to its absorbent qualities, activated charcoal can pull out the dirt and oil your skin has accumulated throughout the day and keep your pores clean.
2) It can treat acne
Activated charcoal can be a hero for acne-prone skin. It keeps acne-causing germs away and reduces inflammation, which can decrease the signs of acne.
3) It balances oily skin too
Activated charcoal pulls out excess sebum from your skin without any harsh side effects. It helps to regulate the skin's oil production.
With timely and constant use of activated charcoal, your skin's tendency to produce excessive sebum can remain under control.
4) It will exfoliate your skin... gently.
Imagine not only having impurities drawn out of your skin, but the dead skin sloughed away as well. You won't need an extra gritty scrub with activated charcoal!
5) Activated charcoal helps with pigmentation as well.
Activated charcoal is not only great for balancing out the oils on your face, but it also helps keep your skin tone level.
Any pigmentation, especially the type that is caused by unwelcome tanning, can be reduced by activated charcoal.
Needless to say, activated charcoal has multiple properties that enable it to get rid of dirt and dead skin. As such, constant use of activated charcoal is a convenient way to get rid of dullness in your skin and keep you bright and shiny as a result!
Note: Serious pigmentation is a skin health issue that needs to be treated by a dermatologist.
