Unclogs Pores- Activated Charcoal can help to remove impurities that tend to clog pores. Overtime excess oil and dead skin can become trapped under the skin, causing pores to become enlarged. The surface of activated charcoal has a negative charge that attracts and binds with positively-charged toxicants, removing toxins and loosening up the debris that contributes to clogged pores.
- Antibacterial Properties- Activated charcoal has both antibacterial and antifungal properties making it a great addition to a skin care regimen.
- Gentle Exfoliant- Activated Charcoal has a naturally gritty texture that make it a great natural and gentle exfoliant. Exfoliation is essential for removing buildup on the surface of our skin, which can clog facial pores, further exacerbate blemishes, and result in an uneven, dull appearance. Activated Charcoal helps to remove sebum and dead skin cells from the face, while its antimicrobial properties help prevent skin infections.
- Balances Oily Skin- Activated Charcoal pulls out excess oil. If you tend to have oily skin, using activated charcoal as part of your skin care routine will help remove excess oil that leads to clogged pores, blemishes and greasy looking skin.
- Detoxifies Skin- By binding to toxins and contaminants, activated charcoal detoxifies the skin, leaving it bright, taut, and unclogged.
