CHARCOAL has SO many benefits for the skin and has been around for ages! More recently, charcoal has made it’s way back around and has been the talk lately! From charcoal toothpaste to charcoal masques, it seems to be the BIG craze! As Master Estheticians at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove, Utah, we have a few favorite charcoal products we use from Eminence Organic Skin Care.
Let’s talk about a few benefits charcoal has on the skin and why everyone is going crazy about it! When Charcoal and Kaolin clay are mixed together it detoxifies the skin, drawing out oil, dirt and bacteria that cause excess sebum making it incredible for congested, oily and combination skin types. When using charcoal based products, your pores will appear refined and minimized. The look of sebum on the skin is reduced. Skin surface appears clarified and less irritated. The skin will be hydrated and nourished. Skin looks soft and noticeably smoother.
One of our very favorite masques from Eminence Organics is the CHARCOAL T-ZONE PURIFIER MASQUE. We love it for it’s deep cleaning and pore refining benefits for combination and oily skin types. This is a great one for problem skin types.
A few ingredients in this masque and ingredients we encourage all oily t zone skin types to use are:
Buchu Leaf Extract: mattifies the skin. Kaolin Clay: draws out impurities without stripping the skin. Charcoal: draws out oil, dirt and bacteria.Willow Bark: anti-inflammatory. Tea Tree Oil: soothing anti-inflammatory. Salicylic Acid: evens complexion and smooths. Eucalyptus Oil: anti-fungal and antibacterial.
If you are wanting to reduce the appearance of large pores, oily t zone and breakouts we suggest scheduling a Targeted Facial at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove, Utah and letting one of our Master Estheticians help you achieve your skin care goals and help with your at home skin care routine.
