There’s some makeup and skincare ingredients that have been spoken about for years, we’ve spoken about the Vitamin C benefits before. One ingredient that is taking the beauty world by storm is charcoal and the benefits of charcoal in your skincare. Charlotte’s Goddess Cleansing Ritual features a duo of skin saviours, including a citrus oil cleanser, but also a purifying bamboo charcoal cleanser.
What Are The Benefits of Charcoal?
Whilst it may not seem like the most glamorous ingredient in town, charcoal, especially in its activated form, can be incredibly beneficial. We’ve seen it in detoxes, teeth whitening products and even as a hangover cure, but this also translates to our skincare routines.
The benefits of charcoal stretch from its all natural form, to purifying your skin and making your pores appear reduced. Let’s face it, in our day to day life, our skin picks up a lot of grime and dirt, especially in cities. A detoxifying ingredient like charcoal can help to cleanse your skin a lot deeper, really cleaning in those pores to help extract dirt and oil that builds up. This helps to keep your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
If you have oily skin, a charcoal cleanser can also help balance out your complexion, leaving your skin feeling smoother, perfect for makeup application. The oil and dirt that gets stuck in your pores will often stick to the charcoal cleanser when washed away with water, leaving you with a fresher-feeling complexion.
Combined with the supercharged Vitamin C, a purifying charcoal cleanser can make for an incredible daily skincare routine, to help you leave your skin feeling ultra-smooth, nourished and clean. This makes it the perfect base to your makeup application, for a flawless-looking complexion that feels like the day after a spa every day!
