Acne is something we all experience sometime or the other in our lives. There are girls who have acne 24/7 and this can lead to scarring! Oily skin has higher chances of getting acne. Activated charcoal these days is used in so many skin care products because it has a great property called absorption! It absorbs all the impurities and cleanses the pores thoroughly so there is no acne causing agent in them. Below is how you could use activated charcoal to make an anti-acne face cleanser along with its benefits:



  • Charcoal is like a magnet for skin that traps impurities and draws them out from the surface of the skin and thus helps in brighter looking skin.
