Possessing the color of dirt itself, it's ironic how charcoal actually helps the skin recover from impurities. Confusing as it may sound, it can suck all the nasty stuff out of your pores like a sponge! Oil, bacteria, and other micro-particles beware. Another great thing about charcoal is that our skin can't absorb it, so it works great in face masks and exfoliating products instead of moisturizers and serums. It's definitely an ingredient you need if your pores are prone to clogging.
Now, what are you waiting for? Keep your pore condition in check and treat yourself to these purifying picks!
