Ok let’s get started: Charcoal is all the rage to detox, purify and clean up skin. It’s especially ideal for acne prone, combo or oily skin, too.
For starters, I love a good Charcoal Body Wash for my husband. I also love how awesome charcoal is at cleaning my makeup brushes and sponges!
Have you ever tried a Konjac body sponge infused with activated bamboo charcoal? These sponges are completely natural: no chemicals, colors or additives. They exfoliate and cleanse with konjac root fibers. Because they're vegan and completely biodegradable, you'll never have to worry about their environmental impact.
I can’t stand using harsh loofah sponges because they are made of plastic (horrible for the environment), get moldy, and leave me all scratched up. The Konjac sponge is the perfect solution because it's gentle and exfoliating. It leaves my skin clean and soft. I always feel like I'm at the spa in my very own home using this one I found on Amazon!
Now, here are some of the added benefits of charcoal:
1. Charcoal Treats Oily Skin:
I was blessed with normal-ish skin but I’ve worked with my fair share of oily faces and I get that you might be fed up with trying out so many products to treat your oily skin and acne. A good Charcoal cleansing bar absorbs excessive oil along with the dirt from skin. This gives you an oil-free look. It also removes unwanted oil from the face. (yay!) You want to look for a bar soap that has natural ingredients that are less likely to irritate or dry sensitive skin. The Yellow Bird soap bar is formulated with activated charcoal and moisturizing shea butter to remove blemishes and impurities. It is a great everyday clean face cleanser and body wash for those suffering with acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea.
If you are looking for a new face mask to try on your oily skin, then I have the perfect charcoal mask for you! The purpose of this mask is to remove blackheads and whiteheads from the face. You can use it up to three times per week or if your skin is relatively clear like mine, use it once a week. This mask works better than many other peel-off masks out there and the price is super affordable. I’m also a prime member so it always ships super quick. I love how some of my clients’ faces went from pimply to totally clear!
2. Charcoal Provides Flawless Skin:
Charcoal has the amazing ability to control oil and draw away the impurities that build up in the pores. If you have bacne (acne on your back or other areas of your body) or you just love indulging in your bathtub, then you need to try this Dr Teal's Epsom Salt Activated Charcoal & Hawaiian Black Lava Salt Foaming Bath. It detoxifies and moisturizes skin from head to toe, melting away stress, blemishes and sore muscles!
If you steer clear of bubbles and prefer bath salts instead, then you’ll love this Activated Charcoal & Lava Salt Soaking Solution! These hefty 3 pound bags are sure to last you a while and are super effective in removing dead skin cells, thus providing clean and flawless skin.
