The Beauty Secret of "Activated Charcoal "

Activated Charcoal is famously known as mkaa in swahili ,a very important ingredient when it comes to beauty .It has recently gained traction in the beauty world .It is mostly used as a mask,  to treat different skin issues.Mix the charcoal powder with water or other ingredients such as jojoba oil ,bentonite clay and other carrier oils to create a paste. Below are some benefits of activated charcoal.

1. Make pores smaller and cleaner
Throughout the day, toxins from the world around us clog our pores. When your pores aren't clear, neither is your complexion. Activated charcoal when used in a face mask helps remove the dirt out of your pores, making them less visible (it’s the oil and dirt that makes them appear bigger). This leaves your face feeling fresh. (Use it with an exfoliating scrub to get the dead skin off and experience an even deeper clean.)
2. Takes care of oily skin
Activated charcoal may be just the ingredient you need to balance things out. when used in a cleanser or mask, activated charcoal can remove the unwanted excess oils from your skin, leaving it smooth. You’ll want to do this sparingly once or twice per week at the most so that you don’t over-dry your skin.
3. Treat acne
Depending on how serious your acne is, activated charcoal can be the best answer to your problem.In soap form, it’s slightly gritty, which provides the gentle exfoliating you need. It also absorb oils and toxins on the skin. You can use it as a spot treatment if you don’t want to use it on your whole face, just think of it as a mini mask for your blemish.
