Charcoal is not only made for your grill because right now, it’s also a hot beauty ingredient. Charcoal has always been a trend in the beauty industry. It is known to unclog pores by pulling dirt, bacteria and all kinds of other pesky particles on the skin’s surface. Putting charcoal in your hair and on your face might not seem glamorous but don’t worry, skin care experts believe it’s a heaven-sent ingredient.
Throughout the day, especially when we are out and about, dirt can easily clog our pores and when our pores aren’t clear, neither is our complexion and this is where charcoal comes in. It binds and helps pull the dirt out of your pores, making them less visible. The benefit is not only limited to your face but it is also very great for your hair. You can use it as a scalp treatment before you shampoo or you can even mixed it with your shampoo. The activated charcoal will work on your scalp the way it does on your skin – pulling out dirt and purifying it.
Try the trend yourself with one of these 7 amazing products. Check out the best-activated charcoal products you need to get your hands on right now!
