Use charcoal in your facial scrubs!
Charcoal is the natural cleanser for when your skin is in need of a heavy detox. Its texture works as a great exfoliator and its unique properties draw out excess oils from your skin to deeply cleanse your pores. You’ll be able to find a facial scrub containing activated charcoal however if you fancy a bit of DIY, simply mix activated charcoal with water to create a dense paste before applying. Massage into your face for a few minutes before removing with warm water.
Use charcoal as a deep clean technique
Charcoal is well known for its absorbent superpowers so adding it to your skin care routine is never going to do any harm. As well as removing black heads, charcoal is wonderful for cleaning blocked pours in the gentlest way. It also primes the skin to absorb other products you might add after your cleanse including retinols and moisturiser. If you’re looking for a bit more of a helping hand, you can always try our Skin Laundry Signature Laser Facial. This involves the application of charcoal lotion prior to our facial and provides a highly effective deep pore cleanse and surface peel that is safe and effective for all skin types.
Add to your water
If you want to reap the benefits of charcoal quickly and give your body a bit of a detox, we recommend you add a couple of sticks of charcoal into your water bottle. The charcoal not only helps purify water by soaking in toxins and impurities but also cleanses your insides, helping you feel fantastic inside and out.
