The Daily Dozen: Charcoal Beauty
By now you’re probably at least vaguely familiar with the charcoal beauty obsession. To put it lightly, these things are everywhere. Wondering why people are paying to put leftover camp fires all over their bodies?! It sounds weird, but the benefits of charcoal beauty are real. The actual charcoal beauty benefits have to do with charcoal’s ability to absorb toxins and pollutants. So it’s not the ashes that are magically making your skin #flawless. It’s carbon’s ability to attract the oil and dirt in your skin and then take it when you rinse that makes charcoal so fab.
