Applying charcoal to your face may not be the most appealing thing to hear, but don’t be intimidated by its dirty-looking color. Toxins stick to these activated charcoals, which makes it a good cleanser and detoxifier. It draws impurities trapped deep within your skin (whiteheads, blackheads, dead skin cells and dirt) and even oil.
So whether you had your daily commute or slept last night with makeup on, we’ve rounded up our favorite charcoal products to clean up that mess!
