Has your skin ever felt greasy, congested or generally lackluster? Maybe you stayed out a little too late one night and forgot to wash your makeup off, or you’ve been testing too many products and want to get your skin back to a youthful, clear state. These are all signs you should be adding a Charcoal Detox Mask into your weekly skincare ritual.
Charcoal masks are great for oily skin, particularly if you’re experiencing congestion, blackheads, and visible pores. Purifying, exfoliating, and smoothing, charcoal masks can also help minimize the appearance of active pimples, helping to dry them out. Add the Charcoal Detox Mask to your weekly skin-clearing ritual and notice how much clearer, brighter, and refreshed your skin looks in no time.
With its antibacterial properties, charcoal works best on the face in a mask treatment, detoxifying the skin by binding to and removing excess oils. Recommended for those with oily skin, charcoal is highly absorbent and antimicrobial, clearing and cleaning out pores, while helping to mattify shiny, oily complexions.
“Charcoal is a great ingredient in balancing and detoxing skin, as it has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, drawing out excess oils and impurities,” explains Dr. Nina Desai, board-certified Dermatologist. “Charcoal Detox Mask can be helpful in the treatment of both active acne and in preventing new breakouts.”
The skincare community loves to throw around the term ‘holy grail’ loosely when it comes to a “life changing” product, but for those who know and love Charcoal Detox Mask, it truly is a game-changer. It’s tough on skin concerns but gentle on skin and makes the perfect detox to get your skin back on track. Think of it like a yoga-retreat for your face. Packing that many benefits into one product was not an easy task but Charcoal Detox Mask really does it all.
To get even more specific, let’s hear from some friends of Glo on why they love our newest mask so much:
“Oh my god where do I even start. It sucks everything out of my pores without drying out or irritating my skin. When I wash it off it’s like my pores have magically disappeared”- Meghan G.
"After just a couple of uses of this mask, my skin looks and feels great! This is one of my favorite products and I will make sure to incorporate this in my regimen to help maintain balance in my combination skin." - Kaci T.
“When I'm feeling like a pumpkin, I use it before bed and wake up looking like Cinderella. This mask is my jam.” - Sadie A.
"The true detox your skin needs! Stress and hormonal breakouts were totally busted with 1 use of this new revolutionary mask. Can’t wait to use it again." - Stephanie S.
“I’ve been testing this product for almost two years and can confidently say I will never stop using it. The obsession is too real.” - Simone E.
Now that you understand the obsession, let’s chat about what makes this product so special. Charcoal Detox Mask contains several oil fighting, pore-clearing ingredients: Charcoal (of course), bentonite clay and kaolin clay, in addition to environmentally-friendly jojoba beads.
Whether it’s a weekly ritual or a special occasion mask, it doesn’t matter, the benefits of the mask are noticeable immediately. Start with a freshly washed and dried face and apply a thin layer all over. Feel free to use your (clean!) fingers or a face mask brush for more control. Let the mask dry for roughly 10-20 minutes depending on how much product was used; you’ll know it’s dry once it turns a lighter shade of gray.
To exfoliate and remove, wet your hands and gently massage your face. This is where you’ll really feel the jojoba beads get to work, gently scrubbing away any last bits of debris. Once sufficiently exfoliated, continue to remove the product by rinsing your face completely or gently wiping with a wet towel. Finally, marvel at your beautiful skin and apply your favorite serums and/or moisturizers to lock in all of that goodness. Pro tip: while intended for those with oilier skin types, dry skin clients can still benefit. Stick to one use per week and make sure to apply a quality moisturizer post mask.
