Charcoal Masks: A Must-Have For This Summer
Activated charcoal is one of the latest trends in the skincare industry. Different types of products like powdered charcoal masks and charcoal face mask sheets are available in the market today. Activated charcoal helps to remove impurities from your pores and helps minimize their size and appearance. It pulls out toxins from deep within your skin to reveal fresh and clear skin. Also, keep in mind that the activated charcoal we are talking about here is not the same charcoal you use in your barbecue grills! Charcoal peel off masks are applied as a thick layer on your skin and peeled off once they dry down. You must have surely seen videos of people (painfully!) peeling off black charcoal masks from their faces. Often times, the skin is left feeling tingly and uncomfortable. People with sensitive skin often experience a very red face. But peel-off masks are not the only way you can introduce activated charcoal to your skincare routine. Why not try a charcoal sheet mask instead?
A charcoal mask sheet harnesses the power of activated charcoal in an easy-to-use and painless sheet mask format. The extra heat and humidity in the summers can clog your skin with oil and sweat. Activated charcoal helps draw out all the dirt, oil, sweat, and other impurities from your skin. And unlike a peel-off charcoal mask, you don’t have to painfully rip off a charcoal face mask sheet from your face.
We at Garnier recommend trying the Pure Charcoal Black Serum Sheet Mask. In just 15 minutes, the charcoal mask removes facial impurities, toxins, and blemishes and reduces the size of your pores. The charcoal in the Pure Charcoal Black Serum Sheet Mask acts like a magnet and draws out the toxins from your skin. The highly potent serum in the charcoal mask also contains Black Algae Extracts to intensely hydrate and purify your skin while also firming up your face.
The Garnier Pure Charcoal Black Serum Sheet Mask is dermatologically tested and is suitable for all skin types. Depending on your skin type and needs, you can use the charcoal face mask sheet between one to three times a week. People with dry skin should avoid using a charcoal mask excessively since it could dry out the natural oils and moisture from your skin.
The purifying properties of activated charcoal also help to absorb excess sebum from your face. A buildup of dirt, bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells on your skin can clog your pores, causing breakouts and acne. Since charcoal face masks help clear your pores and reduce their size, blackheads, breakouts, and acne are reduced. Consistent and regular use of charcoal masks will leave your skin feeling smoother and healthier.
Your skin often feels dull and tired in summer and charcoal masks are a great way to purify your skin and clean it from deep within.
