Charcoal mask

Caution girly beauty blog alert. After seeing the new wonder beauty must have “the peel off charcoal mask” I thought I must try this.

Charcoal seems to be the latest trend.  Though you may not immediately associate charcoal with healthy skin or skin-care products, activated charcoal boasts beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers.

Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a popular ingredient in facial masks.

I Cleansed my face and I applied this unctuous black liquid and left it to dry. When I have seen the videos on Facebook advertising this, it shows the models peeling it off easily. In reality this is not the case, every bit peeled off feels like I’m ripping my skin off. On the plus side my skin is lovely and smooth.It’s probably    because I’ve taken a layer of skin off! The things we do in search of beauty.
