3 Benefits of Using a Charcoal Mask

Charcoal Mask

Have you tried a charcoal mask? Let me tell you they work! I honestly love them. Charcoal masks come in two different forms. They come in a peel or as a traditional wash off mask. Both masks are great! I believe it's just a matter of preference. I personally like to peel off the mask because it's less messy. Anyway, the benefits of charcoal masks are:

1. Helps brighten your skin

Charcoal helps to remove impurities from your skin. When you remove the mask, you will see how much healthier your skin will look. It will have a healthy glow to it, which indicates good circulation.

2. Helps to exfoliate your skin

Charcoal helps remove dead skin from the area. As it's removing impurities and reviving your skin, it is also helping reduce the appearance of pores, giving your skin a more porcelain look.

3. Great for people with oily skin

Charcoal masks help balance the oil secretion from your skin. If you have oily, acne prone skin, it's good to use once or twice a week. If you have dry skin, you can use it once a week or even less like once a month. It's a great way to detoxify your skin regardless of skin type.

Choosing which type of charcoal mask you want to use is up to you. I personally love the peel mask because it's less messy. I have very dry skin and use it once a week to help detoxify my skin. It's a great way to have an at-home facial.
