We've all heard that activated charcoal is good for your skin...but how exactly is it good for your skin?
Here are 3 ways AC helps out
- Remove impurities from the skin
Because of activated charcoal’s ability to absorb bacteria and toxins in the body, some skin experts believe that a charcoal face mask can help draw impurities from the skin.
Anecdotal evidence claims that by removing trapped dirt and bacteria from the skin, using a charcoal face mask can lead to a healthier, clearer complexion
- Aid in Treating Acne
Acne is caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria that gets trapped inside the pores in your skin. Acne-causing bacteria can trigger pimples and other inflammatory lesions, resulting in irritation, redness, and swelling.
The antibacterial properties of activated charcoal, however, may help lift bacteria from the pores. This may help with reducing acne and improving overall skin complexion.
- Provide relief for skin irritations
Topical application of activated charcoal can help in quick recovery from minor skin irritants and injuries like insect bites, stings, cuts etc. Activated charcoal also helps in providing relief from symptoms like swelling, pain, and irritation
