Charcoal masks are safe for every skin type. The only time it causes redness or dryness is when it is overused. The charcoal mask is a must-have because of its tenderness on the skin. It has numerous benefits because of the activated carbon in it, which is the major ingredient found in charcoal masks. It is safe to know that the charcoal used in making masks for the skin is different from the outdoor/grill charcoal.
Activated charcoal used for masks draws bacteria from the skin and is used for many other products in the beauty world. There are cleansers and scrubs, but first, here are ten reasons to add charcoal masks to your skincare routine.
It purifies your pores.
The contents of the charcoal face mask make it easy for the product to unclog the skin. It penetrates the skin and cleanses the dirt in the skin. When the charcoal mask is used on the face, it gets to the skin’s depth and purifies the oil and dirt build-up. A tightened pore means an acne-free pore. With a charcoal mask, your skin’s pores are not just purified, but it stays healthy and tight. You can close open pores using an activated charcoal mask.
It absorbs toxins from the skin.
When the skin is toxin-free, it glows. Not all face masks have activated charcoal. The one’s that do not contain this major ingredient does not get rid of the toxins. Daily activities have your skin exposed to various pollutants that build up dirt and grime. These pollutants can be from exposure to the sun, sleeping patterns, and products used on the skin.
Moisturizing and cleansing the skin is not enough to get the toxins out. The charcoal mask absorbs the dirt and leaves your skin glowing. Use our charcoal mask at least twice a week to achieve that glowing and toxin-free skin.

Popping blackheads with your fingers is extremely bad. It doesn’t only leave you with scars or injuries; you also have to deal with dark spots. Blackheads are a result of all the dirt accumulated on the skin over time. Blackheads can turn to pimples and acne over time.
The good thing with a charcoal face mask is that it is also a spot treatment. Apply on the areas with blackheads and gently pull. Do this two times a week to achieve results.

The dead skin cells make it hard for your skin to be clear and bright. Excessive exfoliation of the skin is bad. Use the charcoal face once a week or twice, depending on your skin type.
