What was once only thought of as a grilling component has become the main ingredient in face masks and cleansers. Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out dirt and oil from pores. Keep in mind activated charcoal is NOT the same as the stuff you grill your burgers with, so don’t go steal some from dad. It is a medical grade version, used in hospitals as emergency treatment to remove poison from the body.
There are other amazing benefits of using charcoal on skin. Insect bites, stings, cuts, scrapes, and minor irritation can all be reduced by using activated charcoal on the infected areas. It works by bringing down swelling and also helps lessen the pain.
Charcoal can also be used as a cleansing component for the body, while charcoal capsules are becoming increasingly popular to rid the body of toxins. It is also helps when struggling with a hangover (thank goodness). So, we definitely understand why this is becoming a trend!
GREAT NEWS! The main ingredient in the T-Zone Mattifying Mask is bamboo charcoal! Bamboo charcoal is another form of activated charcoal, a natural ingredient to help purify and deep-clean skin. The crushed powder draws out toxins, without adding any new chemicals. It is great for treating acne by pulling the excess dirt and excess oils. Overall, it’s definitely one of the reasons why people all over the world are trying the Zone Mask System!
