Detoxifying Charcoal Mask with earth clays!
By now it’s no surprise that charcoal plays an important role in the self-care world! Our Detoxifying Charcoal Mask not only contains charcoal, but it also contains kaolin clay and lecithin. Kaolin clay is known to reduce blemishes and treat acne. Lecithin is known to soothe and moisturize the skin, while also restoring hydration! Put them together in one and you have one powerful combination in a jar!
Charcoal draws out dirt and impurities, reduces, acne breakouts, and controls oiliness. Our charcoal mask is guaranteed to give you a powerful pore-cleaning, detoxifying potential for clear, blemish-free skin. As we may or may not know, pores are the portal in which our naturally produced oils pass through. If there are blockages and they are not cleaned, you risk bacteria that leads to infections, which can cause acne and blackheads. While some people may have bigger pores than others, you can minimize them by ensuring that you clean them often using our charcoal mask and then following through with a toner (witch hazel), and our hydrating face moisturizer to complete your skincare routine.
Alongside charcoal masks, there are other factors to consider when trying to minimize the appearance of your pores. To prevent blockages you should:
- Keep dirty, oily hands off and away from your face.
- Use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful rays.
- Skip aggressive exfoliation with plastic beads and use our natural face scrub with natural jojoba beads!! No harmful plastics and chemicals!
- Never skip moisturizing but don’t use too much product either. You want to use a natural face moisturizer (you guessed it, like ours!), that will not contain chemicals to aggravate your skin! (FYI, all of our products are cruelty-free, vegan, and free of any chemicals!)
So you may ask, “how is it that charcoal actually cleans the pores???”. Well, my friend it’s simple…. Charcoal effectively cleanses the skin, unclogs pores, removes deep down impurities, and dead skin cells. Dirt, toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and other poisons are attracted to the molecules in charcoal (like a magnet) and washed away! The best part?! It does all of this without absorbing the vitamins and nutrients from your skin! Leaving you with smooth, supple, even-toned, radiant, and healthy skin!
When cleansing, it’s best to use a cleanser that won’t strip your skin barrier and leave your face dry. I suggest using our Cucumber Daily Cleanser gel because it’s gentle on the face and does not irritate or dry out the skin.
Using a high quality cleanser ensures that your skin gets a good balance of emollients, essential oils, and vitamins to remain healthy and prevent drying. Also, keep in mind that charcoal is inert. This means that it will not cause allergic reactions and it will not irritate sensitive skin. As a matter of fact, charcoal is known to remedy allergic skin reactions!
Cleansing and taking good care of your pores won’t make them disappear, but establishing a consistent skincare regimen with high end and high quality products will ensure that they are healthy and clear. Resulting in a fresh, vibrant, youthful complexion!!
REMEMBER, HEALTHY SKIN IS IN!!
