We’ve heard a lot about charcoal benefits however, what are the benefits of it for the skin? This ingredient has been a skincare craze for a few years now, and for good reason. It’s uses dates back centuries ago, as far as ancient Egypt. Why should you start adding it into your skincare?
Charcoal has absorbent properties, allowing it to soak up excess sebum and oils from your skin. Removing excess oils allows your pores to work at a controlled and balanced level. Your skin won’t need to overwork or compensate which is usually when oils gather and clog the pores.
Smooth & Soft Skin
With the different benefits of charcoal like balanced oil, gentle exfoliation and pore-cleansing (among many others), another benefit is a new canvas! Giving your skin the ultimate detox is great to elevate your skincare routine and continue to make it smoother and softer.
Soothes Skin Irritation
Another benefit of this special ingredient is its ability to speed up the healing process of cuts or scrapes and relieve symptoms. That’s why we’ve included it in our Shopping Annuity Premium Shave Cream with Activated Charcoal (exclusive to UnFranchise Owners). This shaving cream can help prevent skin irritation and discomfort caused by razor burn.
One of our favourite charcoal products is the Lumiere de Vie Konjac Sponge Set which includes two natural sponges and one bamboo charcoal sponge. A konjac sponge that includes charcoal benefits can really change your skincare routine. You’ll be able to gently exfoliate the skin without stripping it of it’s natural oils.
