Activated Charcoal Bath Benefits

It’s been a long day and you look forward to having a relaxing quality “me” time before going to bed. Or, it’s a weekend, and you wish to pamper yourself without going outside the comforts of your home. An activated charcoal bath is the best way to give yourself a break, as well as provide your skin with needed TLC. Here are activated charcoal bath benefits that you should take advantage of regularly.

Detoxifies the skin

Activated charcoal is a known detoxifier. Its negative charge makes it capable of drawing out heavy metals, toxins, and pollutants that your skin gets as you go through your day. Pollutants are known to cause skin problems such as eczema, acne, and hives. As you enjoy your soak, activated charcoal helps remove all those irritants from your skin, helping ease breakouts and other skin problems.

Soothes inflammation and clears the skin

As activated charcoal draws out all those dirt and impurities, your skin will eventually smoothen. You’ll experience less redness, and your skin inflammation will go down. Your skin will also clear up since there is a reduction in discoloration caused by inflammation.

Gentle exfoliation

Dry exfoliating rubs can irritate the skin, while chemical exfoliants can cause reactions. The presence of water helps create a lubricating layer between the activated charcoal and your skin. This enables you to scrub the activated charcoal all over your body with minimal irritation. Each scrub helps to gently remove dead skin cells that make your skin dull, scaly, and lifeless. After soaking and rinsing, you’ll find that your skin will absorb moisture and nutrients from your skin care products.

The gentle exfoliation of activated charcoal can also help lighten acne scars, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. As you peel off the dead skin layer, you move some of the pigmentations, revealing clear, glowing skin beneath.
Adding essential oil boosts the experience

Because activated charcoal is an inert material and will not react to almost any compound, you are free to add essential oils to your soak. Boost your mind and lift your spirits by adding cypress, grapefruit, or lemon oil to your bath.

Hit two birds with one stone by using Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask as you let the activated charcoal bath remove all the toxins, stress, and tiredness from your body. As the charcoal mask dries on your skin, it absorbs all dirt, makeup residue, and excess oil from your skin. By gently peeling off the mask, you’ll lift away dead skin as well as those ugly blackheads. As a result, your face will look smooth, clear, and fresh-looking.

Give your skin the pampering it deserves. It works hard to protect yourself from harm, injury, and sickness every day. Keep it healthy by eating right, resting well, and using activated charcoal to cleanse and detoxify.
