5 Skin Benefits of An Activated Charcoal Clay Face Mask

Smearing activated charcoal all over your face might not sound very glamorous when you think about it but it does have many skin benefits (especially for those with oily skin) when used correctly.

What is activated charcoal?

Activated charcoal is simply heated carbon. This helps to increase its absorption power, and when applied to the skin, helps to draw little, tiny particles such as dirt, oils, and bacteria to the surface of the skin, for an easier removal.

So, what can activated charcoal do for your skin?

1. Deeply Cleanses Pores

As stated above, activated charcoal has major absorptive benefits. In a way, it acts as a magnet when applied to the skin, as it helps to draw out all those nasties that are deep down within your pores.

All these impurities stick to the activated charcoal and are pulled to the surface, detoxifying your skin by removing dirt, oils and bacteria.

2. Balances Oils

If you struggle with oily skin, activated charcoal helps to re-balance everything out.


By pulling out those excess oils. This can have you saying going goodbye to shiny skin for good!

3. Gently Exfoliates

Have you ever felt powered activated charcoal?

Well, if not, it’s a got a slightly gritty nature. This unique texture helps to gently get rid of those dull, dead layers of skin. Leaving behind a new, detoxed, fresh canvas.

4. Reduces Pore Size

With routinely using activated charcoal, you may notice your pores shrinking smaller and smaller.


Because our pores are constantly being filled with nasty pollutants, bacteria, oils, dirt, toxins and dusts.

This makes your pores look enlarged in appearance, but with the deep cleansing benefits of activated charcoal, your pores may not be as noticeable as it once was.

5. Treats Acne

Activated charcoal helps to kick to the curb pore clogging bacteria that in turn can cause acne. As we have already established, this star ingredient has so many skin benefits and those unique features of drawing out excess oils, dirt and bacteria also help in the fight against acne.
