Charcoal and Your Skin

Your skin is a living organ, which has pores of its own. These pores, and the skin's permable

membrane, allows chemicals and toxins to pass both into and out of your body. Acne has many possible   causes, including blocked pores; dirt and bacteria on the skin's surface; excess sebum, or oil and a  poor diet. Applying activated charcoal to your skin will remove detritus from your skin's surface and can even extract toxins from beneath the skin. The antibacterial properties of charcoal can also help to alleviate infections that cause acne breakouts.

Activated Charcoal can absorb minerals, toxins, impurities and other harmful substances from your skin, leaving you with stronger, healthier skin.  It can act as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells. The skin under the eyes is more delicate than our other facial skin. As a result,
when dirt collects in the pores under your eyes, it starts to to sag with weight and we begin to look old. Using an activated charcoal cleanser will properly clear the dirt from the delicate tissue under your eyes. As a result, you will look younger!
