What’s the deal with char­coal?

Sharp - - STYLE -

Not only is it pop­u­lar in goth-bait­ing ice cream flavours — it can also keep your skin look­ing fresh. Case in point: Clin­ique For Men’s char­coal face wash,

which lever­ages the in­gre­di­ent for its detox­i­fy­ing prop­er­ties. Here’s the lowdown: ac­ti­vated char­coal’s neg­a­tive elec­tric charge at­tracts pos­i­tively-charged tox­ins and chem­i­cals to bind to its sur­face. This is why it’s some­times used as a treat­ment for poi­sons. In the case of Clin­ique’s prod­uct, this sci­en­tific magic helps to re­move the dirt and oils that can clog pores.
