10 Best Charcoal Skin Products

Charcoal is an amazing natural beauty product.  Activated charcoal is just like the charcoal that you get when you burn wood except the activated version is made to use on the body.  To make activated charcoal, they take charcoal and heat it, which causes expansion.  This expansion causes it to be porous to trap more toxins.  The reason charcoal works is because it forms bonds with other substances, namely toxins.  It can absorb 1000s of times its own weight in toxins, and it has a large surface area.  This is why charcoal is sometimes used if someone ingests a poison or toxin.  This also makes it a wonderful natural product to help prevent and heal acne.  Charcoal is gentler than using harsh chemicals on your skin, so it really works well for those with sensitive skin and acne.  I don't suffer from acne other than the occasional blemish, but I like using charcoal because I have large pores, and it helps pull the dirt out to make them appear smaller.  Here are my top 10 best picks for charcoal skin products.
