But there’s a lot of confusion about what type of mask is best for you- which is why we’ve compiled this list of charcoal products that will work best depending on your skin type.
Goodness of Charcoal
According to Dr. David Colbert’s book “The Green Beauty Guide,” activated charcoal not only absorbs oil but anything else on its surface, including dirt, bacteria, or even other toxins! Charcoal absorbs 100 times its weight in impurities, making it highly effective for oily skin. In addition, it is highly absorbent, non-drying, and does not over-strip the skin of essential moisture. Charcoal also contains anti-microbial properties to help minimize breakouts.
There are three main categories of skin type: dry/ sensitive, normal/ combination, and greasy /acne-prone. Let’s take a look at them in detail:
Greasy / Acne-Prone Skin
To combat ‘oily’ issues without drying out the skin, keep an eye out for antibacterial or antioxidant-rich ingredients. This will help tone down oil production, keeping acne at bay! Mamaearth C3 Face Mask is an excellent choice for this skin type because it has the goodness of charcoal, coffee, Kaolin, and Bentonite Clay, which help detoxify the skin. This face mask is suitable for all skin types but works best for acne-prone skin. The goodness of these natural ingredients helps get rid of excess oil and toxins hidden in the pores without drying it out!
If you have dry skin, go for a more gentle mask and do not strip off the protective layer of moisture from your skin. Masks with ingredients rich in antioxidants, vitamins and emollients will help protect your skin barrier while hydrating your skin!
Lotus Herbals Purifying Neem Face Pack can be used on all skin types but will be particularly beneficial for dry/sensitive skin. It contains neem extracts to soothe irritated skin, aloe vera to heal wounds quickly, lemon to brighten the complexion. The best part about this product is that it has natural antibacterial properties that keep acne away!
Renee Voltaire Charcoal Clay Mask is another popular choice amongst people with sensitive skin. It contains activated charcoal to draw out impurities from the pores. In addition, it has a combination of bentonite clay which absorbs excess oil, avocado butter to soothe dryness, and orange peel wax to balance uneven skin tone.
Normal / Combination Skin
This is probably the most common type of skin encountered that can be normal or have an oily T-zone depending on hormonal changes! So, here you should go for a sheet mask for combination skin that exfoliates but doesn’t overdo it. You need something deeper cleansing yet gentle enough not to strip off all your moisture at once!
