What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a type of carbon that has been specially heated to increase its ability to absorb. Due to the heat during processing, the activated charcoal is safe for humans, unlike the charcoal you might purchase at the store for a barbeque. They are very different because of the heating process and cannot be interchanged. The heating actually changes the structure of the charcoal itself, decreasing the pore size of the charcoal.
Why Should Activated Charcoal Be Used in a Mask?
The pores on your face are larger and more noticeable when they’re not clean. Washing your face helps, but it doesn’t get to what’s trapped in the pores themselves. Activated charcoal, when used in a mask, can pull out the dirt that’s trapped in your pores, cleaning them and making them not as noticeable. A charcoal face mask can provide a variety of benefits for your skin.
What are the Benefits?
An activated charcoal face mask can help remove dirt and pollutants from your skin, giving you clearer, healthier skin. It provides a deep cleaning while exfoliating your skin and helps to remove acne, blackheads, scars, dead skin and more on your face. After using the charcoal face mask, you’ll have clearer, softer skin.
How Should the Charcoal Face Mask be Used?
Use a small amount of activated charcoal with a small amount of water to create a paste consistency. Apply to your face, avoiding your mouth, nostrils, and eyes. Leave on for a few minutes, no more than 10, and allow it to slightly dry. It should not completely dry on your face. Rinse the activated charcoal to ensure it is all removed. This can be done one to three times a week, depending on the condition of your skin, to help you keep your skin beautiful.
Is Activated Charcoal Safe to Use?
Activated charcoal is alcohol-free, gluten-free and vegan. After the heating process, it is safe to use. The main concern is allowing the activated charcoal to dry on your face. When you use a charcoal face mask, use care to avoid it completely drying on your skin. This can dry out your skin too much. As long as you rinse it off before it completely dries, it will help give you clearer, more beautiful skin.
