Pollution, tobacco, excess sebum…these are just some of the ways our skin can be suffocated. It becomes dehydrated, starts to look dull and the pores get clogged up resulting in imperfections.
Thanks to its absorbent powers, vegetable charcoal has proved itself to be a real game changer when it comes to fighting all of these problems effectively. But how can you build it into your beauty routine?
In the world of beauty products, you will mostly find vegetable charcoal in masks. When combined with clay, for example, it helps absorb impurities, eliminate toxins, get rid of blackheads and illuminate your complexion. And, because it’s so effective, vegetable charcoal can also act as a light exfoliator, which is perfect for eliminating the dead skin on the surface of the epidermis. Your skin is soft, purified, fresh and radiant.
But the superpowers of vegetable charcoal don’t stop there. As well as purifying the skin, it also helps to preserve its hydrolipidic film, whilst avoiding the uncomfortable tugging sensation which you can sometimes feel after putting on a clay mask.
Finally, charcoal has antioxidant effects which help in the fight against the daily signs of tiredness that active women tend to experience and, over time, against skin ageing.
