Charcoal Cleansers For the Win

Share:

Charcoal cleansers continue to be an essential skin care product. Beauty experts rave about its effects and have been using it for years. SKINNEY Medspa is featured in an article on Insider.com titled, “I often describe this $6 Biore charcoal cleanser as a ‘plunger for your face’ — it uses activated charcoal to clear the grime from my face.” If you struggle with skin or acne issues, this could be a solution. Find out why professionals swear by charcoal cleansers.

why charcoal?

Charcoal cleansers are said to get deep into the pores and remove dirt and grime from the skin. The activated charcoal and salicylic acid work together to create a product that is more than just trendy. Professionals say doctors use activated charcoal to remove toxins from someone suffering an overdose. If it can attract toxins in the stomach, it might be able to do the same for skin.

Patricia Giles, an esthetician with SKINNEY Medspa, says, “Activated charcoal has powerful absorption and anti-inflammatory properties. It acts as a deep pore cleanser and detoxifier as it binds to dirt, toxins, and dead skin cells when used in skincare.”

Charcoal cleansers are easy to use. Wet your face at the sink or while taking a shower. Take the cleanser and start rubbing it on your face in circular motions. The dark gray color will turn into a white foam. Spend some time rubbing it in. This allows the cleanser to penetrate the skin. Some people report a tingling feeling. To get an even deeper cleanse, use a face brush. The spinning brush helps to spread the charcoal cleanser evenly.

You can use a charcoal cleanser year-round. Some beauty experts report that it can be drying and adjust their use to just a few days during the winter. When it comes to summer, cleanse away every day!

Expensive charcoal cleansers don’t always mean better. Test the high-end products, but also give the drug store items a chance. Gradually incorporate charcoal cleaners into your skincare routine. Figure out how your skin reacts and then decide how often it can be used.

Most skin types can handle charcoal cleansers, but beauty experts say that the tingling sensation often results in redness. Rinse your face with fresh water, and the redness should subside in minutes.
