Active charcoal and its benefits

Looking youthful is something all women strive for and like most, we have tried and tested hundreds of beauty products to keep our skin looking beautiful. What if there was an all-natural solution to our skin care problems?

Active Charcoal has been around for centuries but recently, charcoal has re-emerged as something of a ‘miracle product’ in the beauty world. Active Charcoal works by chemically binding toxins together, adsorbing oil and debris whilst gently exfoliating, leaving your skin refreshed and glowing.

The benefits don’t stop there! Charcoal can be used to whiten teeth by lifting coffee and red wine stains and can also be used in everyday hair care. The charcoal will help heal minor scalp conditions, reduce dandruff and give your hair a much-needed shine.

Want to try this amazing product? Here’s our simple charcoal facial mask recipe:

  • 1 ½ tablespoons of activated charcoal powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of water (more of less)
  • Place the charcoal in a bowl or cup and slowly add the water, combining until the charcoal and water is a pudding consistency. You may need to add more or less than water than indicated above.
  • Wet your face first and gently apply the mixture generously to your face
  • Leave the mask to set for 10-30 minutes (if you experience any irritation, wash mask off immediately)
  • When ready, wash your face with warm water until the entire mask is removed
  • Moisturise your skin with your regular (natural) beauty products

Another tip: Wash hands while mask is drying with baking soda and warm water, you will find baking soda gets the charcoal off your skin rather well.
