Charcoal is for your face, not just BBQs

April 13, 2014

When oil and dirt in your pores come in contact with carbon, they stick to it and get washed away when you wash your face.

I received the Garnier Clean + Blackhead eliminating scrub from a Klout Perk and while my skin feels spic and span after washing, I haven’t noticed a different in my skin.

Experts say to avoid charcoal face wash since they get washed away too quickly – carbon needs to come in physical contact with impurities.

I’ve been using a few charcoal-based products lately and highly recommend them.

This sponge is glorious, and often sold out at my local Sephora. Wet it with warm water, add a dab of cleanser and start cleaning and polishing your skin. I recommend Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser $28.

The sponge cleanses and exfoliates to deliver smoother, softer, brighter-looking skin. It can be used over the face, neck and even the undereye area.

When used regularly, it helps draw out impurities, minimize the appearance of pores, ad reduce blemish-causing bacteria.

Use once a week or as often as needed. I’ve always been blessed with blackheads on my nose and chin, and I’ve notice a significant decrease and overall deeper cleanliness of my face after using this mask for a few weeks.

If you don’t wan to spend $17 or $24 before knowing if you will enjoy the mask (trust me, you will), try the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask Pods for $8

This is one new trend that everyone should take advantage of.
