6 DIY Charcoal Face Masks For Beautiful Skin

Homemade charcoal face masks are made using activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is made by heating charcoal to a high temperature that causes smalls gaps to be made which in result, makes the charcoal very absorbent.

Research has shown that due to its ability to absorb, activated charcoal can draw out and absorb toxins from the body. For this reason, activated charcoal is very useful in the beauty industry, as it can detoxify your skin and give it a much smoother and glowing appearance.

Clogged pores are one of the major causes of skin problems. So activated charcoal face masks work to draw out the toxins from your body that clogs your pores, giving your skin the chance to breathe.

Benefits of charcoal face masks

  • Draws out impurities

Due to it’s absorbent nature, activated charcoal can draw out toxins and impurities from your skin. It is able to penetrate deep into your skin and draw out built-up dirt that may clog your pores. This makes your pores clear and healthy.

  • Removes dead skin cells

It also works as a great exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and reveal a healthier and glowing skin.

  • Oil control

Dirt and dead skin cells aren’t the only things that this charcoal can draw out. It also helps to mattify the skin by absorbing excess oil from the skin.

  • Acne control

Since acne is caused by clogged pores and too much oil on the face, activated charcoal is best for acne control because, it removes dead skin cells and dirt from the skin and also draws out excess oil and control oil secretion.
