Activated charcoal masts are gaining popularity because of its efficiency in removing blackheads and whiteheads on your skin. It helps to boost the effectivity of your skin care routine by peeling off dead skin, enabling your skin treatments to penetrate deeper. If you’re wondering why you need it, here are the benefits of activated charcoal mask for acne.
Maintains the skin’s natural pH
Your skin has a pH of 4.5-5.5, which is acidic in nature. This is essential in maintaining a barrier that protects your skin from harmful irritants and bacteria. Most skin care products are either too acidic or too alkaline, disturbing your skin’s pH balance.
Activated charcoal is pH neutral and acts as a buffer to help stabilize the pH on your skin. This helps prevent the disruption of your skin’s protective barrier. As a result, you have better protection against inflammation and irritation that causes overproduction of sebum.
Promotes your skin’s microbiome
Your skin also has its own environment of good bacteria that helps fight against harmful microorganisms. These bad bacteria are often the cause of papules and pustules, which are pus-filled pimples that are red, inflamed, and tender.
Activated charcoal masks have anti-bacterial properties that help control the proliferation of bad bacteria. In order to prevent pimples from forming, use the mask when your comedones are still dry and have no signs of inflammation. Avoid applying the mask in red, inflamed areas as the mask penetrates deep and sticks firmly on your skin.
Exfoliates dead skin
Your skin sheds dead skin cells every day. Dead skin, not dirt, is the major cause of acne breakouts. When they accumulate on your skin’s surface, they penetrate deep inside your pores. Once these dead skin cells mix with oil, they cause the formation of whiteheads and blackheads.
When you use Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask, it takes out that dead skin layer, leaving behind a clear, glowing complexion. This helps you limit the formation of comedones on your skin since there won’t be enough dead skin to go deep inside your pores.
As an added bonus, Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask also penetrates inside your pores, attaching to the surface of your comedones. As you peel the mask, these comedones remain stuck to it so you’ll be able to lift them off and remove them from your pores.
Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask works well in removing excess oil on your skin. The highly adsorptive properties of activated charcoal suck that persistent oily film layer and bind it on its surface. As the mask dries, more and more oil attaches to the mask, leaving your skin clear and shine free. No more excess oil that will serve as an environment for dead skin, dirt, and bacteria to accumulate.
Benefits of charcoal mask for acne comes from its highly porous surface, adsorptive capabilities, and inert qualities. It helps maintain your skin’s natural balance and prevent dead skin cells from accumulating. With regular use of Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask, you have better control over acne breakouts while enhancing the effects of your skin care treatments.
