Charcoal, as an ingredient in skincare products, rose to fame a few years ago and took the beauty world by storm. Due to its absorptive qualities, charcoal removes dirt and impurities from the skin’s surface and is still considered to be one of the best ingredients for oily skin.
But that’s not all, here are 3 amazing benefits of using charcoal cleansers for oily skin.
Removes excess oil
Excessive oil production is a common problem among those with an oily skin type, especially in humid weather. If you find yourself dabbing excess oil off your face every few hours or washing it frequently, then all you need is a charcoal cleanser. Using activated charcoal to wash your face can remove excess oil from the face as well as control excess sebum production. The Ponds Pure White Anti Pollution + Purity with Activated Charcoal Face Wash attracts oil and other impurities to leave you with smooth and squeaky clean skin.
Oily skin is prone to acne and breakouts. The excess sebum production attracts and traps pollution and dirt into the skin, which leads to blackheads and breakouts. Using a charcoal cleanser to wash your face twice a day will help get rid of dirt, bacteria as well as makeup residue, which are often responsible for acne and pimples. The oil and dirt that gets stuck in your pores will often stick to the charcoal cleanser when washed away with water.
Oil, dirt and dead skin cells easily get trapped into the pores of the skin, this makes your pores appear larger. Big pores can make your skin appear dull and mature, but charcoal can help with this problem. Activated charcoal helps unclog and shrink pores while purifying the skin.
