ACTIVATED CHARCOAL: THE ‘IT’ INGREDIENT
Charcoal, specifically activated ones, are effective in treating skin as well as hair-related issues. Here are a few benefits:
■ Skin repair: Active charcoal deeply cleanses the skin by absorbing deep-rooted impurities and toxins from the polluted environment. It also controls unpleasant shine, itchiness and tightens the pores.
■ Great for oily skin: Those who have oily skin, activated charcoal is a rescuer. It pulls out excess oil from your skin and makes your skin feeling smooth.
■ Goodbye oily hair: Regular shampoos only remove surface dirt, but activated charcoal will pull out more than what regular shampoos can achieve. A shampoo with activated charcoal has the ability to absorb debris and even bacteria.
