Charcoal is said to absorb about 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, which makes it an awesome ingredient that helps to purify and deep clean the skin. Activated charcoal is a heavy duty agent that will pull out the impurities settled in your pores making it super clean and pure. This when combined with other equally good ingredients can turn out to be superb as many skincare products. Here are the ways we can use activated charcoal:
