We have heard of the many uses of Charcoal since olden times that include cooking fuel, filtration, purification etc. But of late Charcoal has been popping up in healthy menus and beauty products touting its efficacy in skincare and detoxification. We try out two Charcoal based masks from Skin Republic and come away impressed.
Charcoal used in skincare products is activated charcoal and is known to be unbelievably porous, acting like a sponge for impurities that sit on our skin. It helps remove impurities from the skin through adsorption, effectively collecting solid impurities and toxins and attaching those particles to itself. It is all-natural and won’t add new chemicals to your skin and hair when you use it. When used in face masks, it pulls out the dirt and toxins from the pores making them less visible and leaving your skin feeling fresh and radiant. Charcoal masks are extremely effective on oily skins as they pull away excess oil leaving skin smooth and supple. The gritty texture of charcoal helps in gentle exfoliation, while absorbing toxins giving a blemish free skin. Charcoal acts as an amazing cleanser for the skin and can even aid in speeding up healing of wounds and cuts if applied topically.
Skin Republic packs in all the goodness of Charcoal in their masks making them effective and giving a radiant glowing skin.
SKIN REPUBLIC BUBBLE PURIFYING CHARCOAL FACE MASK as mentioned above helps eliminate impurities, exfoliating dead skin resulting in a luminous complexion. The oxygenating facial effect cleans pores with the help of Fruit Acids which exfoliate and brighten the skin for a youthful appearance. After application, when the mask is exposed to air, it begins to bubble and foam plunging deep into the skin’s pores and eradicating impurities. The bubbling sensation is pretty cool, and the skin feels squeaky clean afterwards.
SKIN REPUBLIC DETOX + CHARCOAL FACE MASK is a purifying charcoal mask infused with a 10-superfood complex to protect skin against the visible signs of premature ageing caused by free radicals and environmental pollutants. The mask contains an antioxidant-rich formula of acai berries, chia seeds, cacao, avocado oil, rosehip oil, hemp oil, quinoa, spirulina, green tea, and black tea. Phew!
This mask is great! It is drenched with serum which the skin just soaks up. It has a pleasant scent too. The left-over serum can be rubbed into the skin and ends up leaving the skin hydrated, plump and glowing. This mask dies it all – cleanses, nourishes and luminates the skin! The superfood ingredients are all natural, and nourishing. Visit www.theskinrepublic.com
