Using Charcoal for Your Skin

Using Charcoal for Your Skin

I’m not too sure if you’ve heard, but believe it or not, charcoal is the beauty ingredient of the moment, and for good reason – it is a natural detoxifier, working to effectively attract and absorb impurities, chemicals and dirt from the skin for a clearer, more radiant complexion. For this reason, charcoal has been my go-to as of late, because sometimes we need a little extra help, myself included.

Tried, tested and true! Check out my top charcoal picks:

From sipping it (yep, Organic Avenue’s Charcoal Lemonade helps to flush out any unwanted toxins in the body), to using Sukin’s new charcoal infused skincare range, my abode is now a charcoal haven. And the one product that stands out from the crowd and deserves a round of applause is…

Sukin Oil Balancing Purifying Gel Cleanser $12.95

Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I have a very oily/ combination skin type. What does this mean? My skin, particularly in the warmer weather, is so shiny that it resembles an oil slick. I love shiny hair and nails, but on my T-Zone? Not so much.

So when Sukin launched their brand new Oil Balancing Purifying Gel Cleanser, I was intrigued to see if it delivered on results. The verdict? It’s AH-MAZING! All I need is a fifty-scent sized pump every morning and night and my shine factor is much more manageable. But possibly the best part is that infusion of chamomile, aloe vera and cucumber makes my skin feels soft and supple, not tight and parched, which normally comes along with gel cleansers. Oh and did I mentioned that it helps to minimise pesky pimples?

I highly recommend!
