charcoal kleanser 101 Posted on 12 May 00:00
Charcoal - probably not the first word you think of when you think of skin care, but you should definitely start to welcome it into your skin vocabulary.
What makes charcoal so great for your skin?
Charcoal is a natural detoxifier. This means it helps to draw out impurities in your skin such as dirt and oil, and clarify your skin. Our newest charcoal kleanser also includes tea tree oil which has anti-bacterial properties, and salicylic acid which is a mild exfoliator and helps control blemishes. While the charcoal kleanser is great for oily/blemish-prone skin, it can also be used for any skin type looking for a deeper cleanse. From daily usage, to monthly deep cleanses - charcoal is a small addition to your skin care routine that can make a huge impact.
How to use:
1) Apply a quarter size in the palm of your hand
2) Add water and start to massage the charcoal kleanser in circular motions on your skin for 1 minute
3) Rinse off
4) Continue with your routine and add your favourite toner, serum, eye kream and moisturizer on top
A little tip: charcoal does have a deep black colour and your pretty and perfectly white towels might get stained if you haven't rinsed the cleanser off completely. If you want to keep those towels sparkly white, we recommend to using your cleanser in the shower to ensure you're rinsed off and squeaky clean
