Why Charcoal Needs to Be a Part of Your Skin Care Routine

If you’re looking to give your pores the deep clean they deserve, it may be time to incorporate charcoal into your skin care routine. Charcoal is able to attract dirt and other surface impurities like a magnet, making it a great addition for oily and combination skin types. Thankfully, you don’t have to take a trip to the chimney to start using charcoal in your regimen, you simply have to head to your nearest drugstore. Garnier’s SkinActive line features four great products formulated with charcoal that are ideal for oily skin and perfect to start using this summer!

Garnier Clean+ Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask

This double-duty product is both a mask and a daily cleanser—perfect for busy girls everywhere! The creamy kaolin clay-based formula—infused with charcoal—draws out impurities from the skin’s surface, giving you a deep cleanse and glowing skin. Use daily as a cleanser and twice a week as a 5-minute face mask to detoxify your pores.
