Charcoal-based beauty products are all the rage in 2019, and for good reason! This naturally-derived ingredient has a ton of skincare benefits to get rid of those winter blues and help your skin look better than ever. That’s why on this month’s blog, FREEDOM Naturals® is spotlighting four benefits of incorporating charcoal into your skincare routine.
- Helps Fight Acne
Whether you struggle with persistent acne or occasional blemishes, activated charcoal is the answer to your skincare prayers! This powerful ingredient draws acne-causing bacteria and micro-particles to the surface of the skin like a magnet. In addition to ridding the skin of bacteria, charcoal also acts as a natural healer for acne-prone skin helping protect against current and future breakouts.
- Cleanses and Unclogs Pores
With all the environmental pollution, make-up and germs our skin is exposed to daily, we are all in desperate need of some relief. Charcoal is the ultimate pore cleanser, with the ability to draw out up to 200 times its weight in impurities. Clearing out your pores regularly delays the signs of aging by promoting a healthy and bright complexion.
- Relieves Irritated Skin
Charcoal is known for being a natural healer for all types of skin irritations. Apply activated charcoal to areas of irritation to reduce pain, itchiness and inflammation caused by bug bites or other skin flare-ups. The next time you need some calming relief, reach for the charcoal!
- Reduces the Appearance of Scars
If you struggle with acne scars, dark spots, blemishes or hyperpigmentation, then charcoal is your new best friend! Charcoal gently exfoliates dead skin cells that cause discoloration on the skin. After a few uses, this natural exfoliate will begin to reveal new younger and glowing skin.
At FREEDOM Naturals®, we believe in the power of charcoal! Our new Detoxifying Charcoal Peel-off Mask has activated bamboo charcoal infused with sugarcane, orange and lemon extracts to make you feel energized each time you use it. Say goodbye to unwanted dirt, bacteria and blackheads, and hello to beautiful skin!
