The Many Benefits of Charcoal for Oily Skin

Oily skin requires the right cleansers and moisturizers to eliminate excess oil while maintaining hydration and a healthy glow. There are many ways that activated charcoal benefits the skin, and it’s especially effective for absorbing oil. Charcoal skincare helps support a balanced, shine-free complexion.

Is Charcoal Good for Skin?

Charcoal for skin is “activated,” meaning it is produced at much higher temperatures than the charcoal used for cooking. Activated charcoal is good for skin because it is also much more porous than non-activated charcoal, so it can absorb toxins and draw out impurities like oil, dirt, sweat, and makeup. That makes charcoal highly beneficial for detoxing all skin types, plus it doesn’t cause allergic reactions or irritation.

What about charcoal for oily skin? Charcoal is very effective for oily and acne-prone skin since it eliminates excess sebum, blackheads, and dead skin cells. It can be found in a number of beauty products formulated for oily skin, as well as in cleansers like gels, scrubs, and masks.

Cleansing with charcoal is a great way for oily and acne-prone skin to reap the benefits in a daily beauty routine. The goal is to leave your skin clean, matte, and ready for the next steps. Charcoal works wonders when combined with a moisture-balancing ingredient like micellar water, which doubles as a makeup remover.
