1.     Activated Charcoal Cleanses Small Pores

Throughout the day, our pores are clogged with pollutants from the environment around us. You may have heard about the long-lasting damage to your skin caused by air pollution. If your pores are not visible, neither is the damage. Activated charcoal can bind to dust in the smaller pores, and it helps draw it out of the pores. This renders the pollutants and the damage less noticeable. It leaves you feeling cleaner and gives your skin a touch of freshness.

Oils and contaminants will also be absorbed on and below the skin. If you don't want to use it all over your face, you can use it for spot treatment. Activated charcoal will effectively act as a mini mask for your blemishes and dark spots.
