We all deserve to have a radiant and healthy skin, but as we go outside or commute daily to work, our face falls victim to the chemicals, smog, dirt and toxins that saturate the air. A regular face wash is no longer enough to pull out all the dirt from the skin since the deep-seated impurities can remain and cause all kinds of troubles.

Thankfully, there’s an effective solution that will prevent our skin from adopting such troubles. Let’s find out.

Nature’s vacuum cleaner: Activated Charcoal


Charcoal is a black, lightweight and highly porous residue of charred wood and other similar substances. An ‘activated’ charcoal is further processed by the application of heat to it which reduces its pores, thereby, enhancing its absorptive power.

A regular detergent-based cleanser will only wipe off the dirt from the superficial layer of your skin. But an activated charcoal, on the other hand, is equipped with the powerful ability to absorb and trap even the most stubborn impurities by pulling them out from the depths of your skin, just like nature’s very own vacuum cleaner. It can absorb impurities and dirt many times its own mass and is completely non-reactive to the skin. Charcoal is so effective that it is sometimes used to treat infections, wounds and removing toxins.

Now that you know what charcoal can do for your skin, let’s look at a few products:
