Sensational skin cleaning
There’s nothing better than pure, clean skin. When you think about the amount of make-up, sweat and dirt that accumulates on our faces every day, the thought of drawing out every single impurity so that nothing is left but a blank and balanced canvas, is every skin lovers dream.
But when time is short and the hot water is running out, how can you ensure that your skin is getting a deep clean? What’s needed is a cleanser that works efficiently and effectively to ensure impurities and toxins are removed from the skin.
So what is this magical ingredient? Well it’s charcoal of course!
Yep, that very same black substance that springs into your mind is actually one sensational skin-cleaning ingredient.
What exactly is charcoal?
Charcoal is a lightweight black substance, typically made from burnt wood. It forms when wood is heated in the absence of air and consists of an amorphous form of carbon. The fine, black powder is odourless, tasteless and non-toxic.
What are the benefits of charcoal?
In 1831 at the French Academy of Medicine, Professor Touery consumed 15 grams of the deadly poison strychnine, but lived to tell the tale because he had mixed the poison with activated charcoal. Activated charcoal absorbs chemicals to reduce the toxicity (poison) of substances, so it can be used after a person swallows certain toxic drugs and chemicals. Today, activated charcoal is still utilised for its healing properties, from saving children after they find their way into cleaning products, to healing spider bites and naturally whitening teeth.
So what does this mean for my skin?
Charcoal is not only excellent at absorbing chemicals, but it also has the ability to efficiently and effectively hold onto and remove toxins and impurities from the skin. Within skin care products, charcoal has the ability to effectively deep cleanse without irritating the skin.
Skin purifying products formulated with charcoal
In the Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, charcoal is combined with Skin Purifying Technology to effectively eliminate skin impurities and congestion, while deeply cleansing the pores.
Now, don’t be put off by the dark appearance of the Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. Although it appears black in the bottle (because of the charcoal ingredient) it transforms into white foam upon application and won’t stain your skin one bit. Instead, the dirt-seeking molecules will leave the skin smooth and thoroughly cleansed.
As for the Bioré® Self-Heating Mask, the mask truly does heat itself up – no microwave necessary.
The mask is activated by water. After massaging for about a minute, wash it off and voila! You are left with smooth and soft skin and of course naturally purified pores.
