Benefits of Charcoal on your Skin & Hair

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed us all, for better or for worse. As a result, we listened to your feedback and launched an amazing new category for entrepreneurs to advertise their services.

One such service you can find advertised here is health and beauty services! If a facial is long overdue, we hear you; this pandemic and lockdown has really done a number on us all.

With that being said, we thought we’d give you the scoop on the many benefits of activated charcoal on your skin. Perhaps a charcoal facial is in your near future?

  1. When used on your face in the form of a mask, charcoal binds with the dirt in your pores and helps pull it out.
  2. When used in either a cleanser or a mask, charcoal helps balance out oily skin.
  3. When used in soap or cleanser form, charcoal can be a little bit gritty which is great to be used as a gentle exfoliator.
  4. Charcoal can help soothe and relieve symptoms of cuts, scrapes, minor infections, and bug bites.
  5. When used in a shampoo, charcoal gently detoxes your hair by attracting dirt and oil and then washing it away without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
  6. Charcoal does not leave the same residue behind on your hair that most regular shampoos do, so your hair will be left lighter and voluminous.
  7. Charcoal can also be used as a scalp treatment to reduce dandruff, redness, and oily or itchy scalps by pulling out toxins and purifying the skin.
