Charcoal isn’t just for grillin’ anymore! The lightweight, black material has been a key ingredient in many beauty products for a while, and you might as well get used to it because this trendy ingredient is not going away anytime soon.
Ingrid Jackel, CEO of Yes To, Inc. weighs in on this hot ingredient:
“Charcoal has been used for medical and healing purposes for thousands of years. As of recently, it has become a trendy ingredient endorsed by wellness-minded celebrities for its ability to remove toxins from the body. It has been appearing more and more frequently as an ingredient in products ranging from skincare to drinks, and dental products for the wide range of benefits it offers. Charcoal is really well suited for most skin types, but especially for those who may have impurities or excess oil they’re trying to remove.”
Say YES To Charcoal (and Tomatoes too!)
The Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser seems to be pH balanced as it makes a nice amount of suds and leaves skin feeling squeaky clean but not dry. This cleanser is formulated to gently cleanse oily or acne prone skin. One of it’s key Ingredients is, of course, the Detoxifying Charcoal which helps to draw out skin impurities while the tomatoes are rich in anti-oxidants helping to clear skin up and prevent future breakouts. The eco-friendly Jojoba Spheres provide extra gentle exfoliation without irritating skin. Overall, this a great choice for your teens or any adult that experiences acne. I love the way it leaves my skin fresh, clean and smooth feeling!!! Best of all, it’s just $9.99.
A great product to go along with the cleanser is the Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask is an all natural rich and creamy mud mask that helps to clean up and reduce breakouts. Apply this mask after cleansing skin and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. This mud mask features amazing ingredients including Charcoal, Salicylic Acid, Tomato, Aloe, Watermelon, Pumpkin, Chamomile and more. This mud mask works better than more expensive mud masks I’ve tried. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and smooth. I think it’s even made my pores appear smaller. At just $15.99, you really need to give this one a try.
If you experience acne other places than your face, then you are going to want to grab a bar (or two) of the Yes To Tomatoes Activated Charcoal Bar Soap. Acne on your back, neck, arms, back of your thighs, doesn’t matter! It’s not going to know what hit it once you cleanse it with the Yes To Tomatoes Activated Charcoal Bar Soap. It leaves skin smooth and clean, without drying you out. I recommend using a moisturizing lotion afterwards that is appropriate for acne prone skin. Yes To Tomatoes Repairing Acne Treatment would be a great choice.
