It’s not just fashion that follows trends - modern skincare has its must-haves too and the latest ‘IT’ ingredient making waves in the beauty world is charcoal. Not just any old barbecued carbon though, we’re talking about activated charcoal - a specially treated charcoal which has been enhanced. The use of charcoal in the body is nothing new – it’s been used in medicine and hospitals for years, treating poisoning and overdose cases. So we knew it wouldn’t be long until the beauty world caught up with it’s magical properties!
infusionofstyles likes this one also by pureSOL. These facial and body sponges also come in Original, and Turmeric. But I also like the ego-friendly Agave material. Which infusionofstyles sells at events. So try then out for your face and body. You 'll love them both! Like I did!
Why Is Charcoal So Great?
The way that charcoal works is by attaching itself to toxins and absorbing them before your body can. When added to beauty products, charcoal is like a mini magnet for dirt and oil, so that they will get washed away with the charcoal when you rinse.
The best thing about charcoal is the fact that it’s an all-natural element so it can be ingested too. Its jet black color can be off-putting to some but, in our opinion, the numerous health and beauty benefits far outweigh its ugly appearance!
Contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum and grime. Great for oily and acne-prone skin. If you’ve got quite sensitive skin or are thoroughly committed to a product routine already, you can still get your charcoal fix by replacing your muslin face cloths with a charcoal facial sponge like the Konjac Facial Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal $8.99 at Amazon.
This little black sponge is made of vegetable materials and the activated charcoal absorbs excess oil during cleansing so it’s great for sensitive, oily skin whilst reducing exposure to potentially irritating products.
