Why Women With Acne Should Try Charcoal For Clearer Skin

Mar 6 2015 - 5:00pm

Want clearer skin? Slather your face with dirt! OK, we know it sounds counterintuitive, but dusty charcoal can actually help your complexion. Activated charcoal works like a magnet to draw out all the impurities that get trapped in the pores (and the inky application makes for hilarious spa-day selfies). Skin feels tighter and brighter, pimples are minimized, and visible pores shrink away. Turns out charcoal isn't just for Summer cookouts anymore! Shop the trend from blotting papers to bar soaps when you keep reading.
