Activated Charcoal is being used to purify skin acting as a lifesaver for your complexion.
We use all kinds of makeup and never realize that just washing and rinsing it off isn't enough. Going out into the environment whether it's cold or hot reeks havoc on our skin.
We must take care of our precious mugs and purify.
Lush sells a Charcoal soap that I like. Great for cleansing the bode!
I highly recommend a Charcoal mask to deep clean and exfoliate.
Mostly Charcoal acts as an absorbing, drying agent that draws out impurities almost like a magnet. Working as a skin-care ingredient, it draws out dirt and oil that our skin can not do naturally or just by cleansing and rinsing.
Charcoal's properties are highly recommended for oily skin and acne prone skin. However when used on Normal to Dry skin acts as an exfoliant and deep pore cleanser.
I love a Charcoal mask myself having just Normal skin, I find it extremely soothing and a great exfoliant.
So go out and purify!
Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
