Three Reasons Why You Need a Charcoal Mask in Your Routine

by Imah Usen 12 Apr 2021 0 Comments

Ok y’all! It’s Imah B, and I’m so excited to be officially be your Esthi Bestie. As an esthetician, it’s SO important to me to educate you all on your skin. I want you to feel so confident with the skin that you literally wear every single day. I want you to be certain that you are using the skincare products that your skin needs versus just using what is popular because an influencer said so. Sorry not sorry!

This week, let’s focus on detoxing. But first, let’s talk about our pores (which aren’t the foundation of our skin- but they are pretty dang on important). Pores are literally the gateway for our bodies oil (sebum). This is why some people have naturally shiny skin! They have more oil being produced than others. When our pores are clogged, infection is always a risk! Infection then leads to breakouts of black heads, whiteheads and acne appear.

Benefits of Charcoal and the Skin

There are several benefits of adding a charcoal mask to your skincare routine. The activated charcoal mask may remove impurities from the skin. Activated charcoal has the ability to absorb bacteria and toxins within the body. Because of this, it is believed that the these impurities are absorbed through the skin as well. Removing this trapped dirt and bacteria of course leads to clearer and brighter skin.

Charcoal masks also may improve acne! Acne is caused by a combination of dead skin cells and bacteria that get trapped underneath our skin. This is where various skin conditions such as blackheads, whiteheads and acne begin to appear! The antibacterial properties of the Detox Clay Masking Powder fights off infection to keep the skin clear and glowing.

Lastly, charcoal masks may help the skin's texture become smoother! Using the mask along with a balanced skincare routine encourages the skin to become smoother over a prolonged time. Environmental issues such as impurities in the air and season changes can cause your skin to become dry and honestly "ashy" looking. Don't let that be you. GRAB THE MASK.

How to Use Our Charcoal Mask

If you want to add a great charcoal mask into your routine, follow the steps below using our Detox Charcoal Masking Powder.

STEP 1: Cleanse Your Skin
Before applying the charcoal masking powder, use a cleanser like the Hydra Luxe Cleanser, which is formulated to cleanse the skin without stripping the skin and making it dry. Be sure to double cleanse and take your time. There's no rush here.

Step 2: Apply the Mask
After you completely rinse the skin, create your favorite "cocktail"  using the Detox Clay Masking Powder. I suggest starting with the mixture (a little water, aloe vera gel, and sweet almond oil). Remember, a little goes a LONG way. 

Step 3: Sit Back and Relax
Leave the charcoal mask for 10 to 15 minutes. Grab your fave wine and enjoy! Be sure to use all of the mask you created, you won't be able to reuse this mixture later.

Step 4: Let's Rinse it OFF
Be sure to rinse the skin thoroughly with lukewarm water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

Until next time...
