If, like us, you are a beauty junkie, you’ll know it’s all about the charcoal at the moment. Yep, you read it right, charcoal. What happens is, throughout the day your skin absorbs toxins that ultimately clogs your pores. When your pores aren’t clear, neither is your complexion. Uh oh! So, when Activated charcoal is used in a face mask, it helps draw out the build up dirt and impurities from your pores, making them less visible and brightening your complexion.
We were so excited when we heard one of our favourite cosmeceutical brands, COSMEDIX, was releasing a new product, COSMEDIX Detox Activated Charcoal Mask. The charcoal and clay based mask gently exfoliates your skin, draws out impurities and effectively cleanses away pollutants for a visibly brighter, more radiant complexion.
The key ingredients includes charcoal, which acts like a magnet to draw out oil, dirt and impurities; kaolin clay, which helps draw out and absorbs excess oil and impurities; and diatomaceous earth, which exfoliates the skin.
We found the product to be gentle and soothing, and after a couple of uses we already noticed a big change in our complexion and appearance of pores. It’s perfect for a mid-week pamper sesh while you unwind in the path, or on a rainy Sunday afternoon while you’re tucked up on the couch watching Netflix.
For the best results, use the Detox Activated Charcoal Mask up to three times a week, preferably with your other COSMEDIX products.
