The Deal with Charcoal

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

So, what's the deal with Charcoal? Really? You've seen all the beauty bloggers toting it, you read about it in the beauty mags, but what are the true benefits of activated charcoal for your skin? Activated charcoal which actually is carbon that's been treated to increase its absorbency isn't a new concept, it's been around for quite some time, but much like the fashion industry, beauty trends come and go in cycles. The theory behind including activated charcoal in beauty products is that it attracts dirt and oil. Many experts are saying that when dirt and oil in your pores come in contact with the carbon, they stick to it and then get washed away when you rinse.

Activated charcoal is said to draw out bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a clear complexion and best of all, fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body. Bioré has some great options for those of you interested in trying including facial masks, face washes and bar soaps..

Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar – Liquid cleansers have their place, but some of us just prefer a bar experience. For those who like to hold pore cleansing power in the palm of their hand, this new cleanser features a dual action formula to exfoliate while deep cleaning pores. This cleanser draws out and binds to deep down dirt and oil for 2.5 times cleaner pores than a basic cleanser. With jojoba beads and peppermint, the formula gently exfoliates and leaves skin feeling refreshed and smooth. The exfoliating aspect of this bar is probably the best part as it scruffs off dead skin and allows the skin to breath, feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
