My friend Ronda has been raving to me for years about how charcoal is a miracle worker for skin care and her skin does look amazing. When she first told me about it I wasn't too sure and then, she started to explain to me on why and how it's actually good for you. I figured if it purifies water for all these years then why not. So one night during our work related mini sleep overs, I decided to give it a try. To my surprise my skin did look a little bit lighter. I only tried it once but, Ronda uses it all the time and I am telling you the first thing people ask her when they see her is about her beauty regiments. She is in her early 40's and looks as if she is still in her early 30's. I decided to do a little bit more research on it and here is a little bit on how this works for our skin. Charcoal is known to absorb up to 100 to 200 times it's weight in impurities, which makes it an all natural purifying cleansing skin care treatment. Activated charcoal benefits the skin by drawing out the oil's and dirt and other harmful substances that is located deep within our pores. These gross little toxins are not visible to the eye, they come from the natural dirk your skin will collect through out the day. Think of this as a facial detoxifier with a magnet pulling all of that crap out of your skin. A couple of different people that I have talked to about Charcoal face cleaners, mostly mentioned that it's good to help fight acne. You can easily find different products in your local drug stores. Like I said I have tried it once and this weekend I will try it again, along with one of the MDB stylers. Keep a look out for the follow up. It also can help relieve some of those annoying itchy insect bites.
