Over the past couple of years, People have become more aware of what detoxing is and have found more helpful ways to aid their bodies in the process. Our bodies are naturally designed to detox, take in the good and eliminate the bad. The simple act of breathing in (bring in fresh oxygen) and breathing out (exhaling carbon dioxide) is detoxing. Since we now live in an overpolluted world from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the chemicals we put on our skin, sometimes our bodies become overloaded with toxins. When our bodies can not keep up with proper detoxing we start to suffer. Looking at this from the skin aspect you can suffer from conditions such as dark circles, acne, dullness, dehydration or even sallowness. There has been one ingredient effective at helping with the detoxing process, and it is activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. It is often given internally to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. It works the exact same way for your skin. When using activated charcoal on your skin, it will draw pollution, chemicals and toxins off and safely eliminate them when you rinse with water. Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

Lemongrass Spa Products launched three new skincare products handcrafted with activated charcoal to help your skin detox. Incorporating these products into your skincare routine or using them all together once or twice a week, as a system will help liven up your skin. If you live in a city or suburb I would recommend using these more often as the exposure to pollution is much higher in those areas. Here are some ways you can incorporate each new product into your skincare to achieve healthier skin!

  • Detoxifying Charcoal Face Soap Replace the cleanser you use at night with this face soap. This will help detox from the environmental pollution your skin has absorbed throughout the day. Even if you work at home, stepping outside for a walk or running errands exposes you to pollution.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish Mixing activated charcoal with a gentle exfoliator is a double detox. Not only are you removing cell build up, but you’re also allowing the activated charcoal to work deeper when exfoliating. After you give this product a gentle scrub on your skin, allow it to sit for 1-2 minutes and let the activated charcoal absorb more before rinsing. Enhanced with acai berry and raspberry seed oil antioxidants, you’ll enjoy a subtle fruit essence upon application. This is perfect if you don’t have time to do a full-face mask or detox system. Include this once or twice a week into your routine.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Mask This is great to add to your routine when you have at least 10 minutes or more to allow it to work to its full capacity. If you chose to do your full detoxing routine once a week then apply this mask after you have used the Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish.

    Would it help to rinse with cold water after using these items to close your pores? Or is that a myth?
