This Natural Ingredient Is Like A Vacuum For Your Pores

Instantly purify your skin

While putting charcoal on your face might sound very unglamorous, it’s fast becoming one of the most trendy skincare ingredients out there. Why? Charcoal contains natural properties that act like a magnet, drawing impurities such as make-up and dirt out from the skin’s surface.

Incorporating a charcoal-based product into your daily regimen can balance oil production and increase skin’s radiance over time. Since it doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals, this wonder ingredient can be used on sensitive complexions while still being effective enough to tackle adult acne
