Charcoal is the new black
The beauty industry is constantly evolving, and with these changes and innovations come buzzwords and new ingredients claiming to improve our appearance.
Over the years, we’ve fallen in love with the beautifying benefits of new skin care ingredients like antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, rosehip oil, and of course, coconut oil.
This year, there’s a new and seriously effective ingredient on the block, and it’s probably one you wouldn’t expect: charcoal. Surprised? Well, the dusty black stuff can actually work wonders on your complexion, and here’s how…
Thanks to its absorbing properties, charcoal has the ability to deeply cleanse and purify skin. This is good news for oily-skinned ladies, or anyone who struggles with pesky pores because it sucks deep-down dirt, oil and impurities from pores, making way for a cleaner, brighter complexion.
Sounds pretty amazing, right? Bioré® Skincare has been well ahead of the trend since the launch of two charcoal products last year, including a cleanser and mask. The Biore® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser combines charcoal and Skin Purifying Technology into a formula that helps whisk away impurities, leaving you with deeply cleansed pores. For a little extra TLC, the Bioré® Self-Heating One Minute Mask heats up to help open pores and dislodge grit and grime. Genius!
To help women the world over rock a clean complexion, Bioré® Skincare has added three brand new deep-cleaning charcoal products to this range. First up is the Bioré® Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. Formulated with charcoal, jojoba beads and peppermint, this two-in-one goodie helps to purify and gently exfoliate skin. And you guessed it – since it contains charcoal, the bar is black, so it’ll look downright cool in your bathroom. Consider yourself warned: your boyfriend will definitely want to steal this one!
Secondly, the Bioré® Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips will be your pores’ new BFF – once a week, that is. A new take on the cult Bioré® pore strips we know and love, these strips are enriched with charcoal and work like a magnet to rid your skin of ingrained dirt, oil, and stubborn blackheads. Simply pop one on your nose for ten minutes and say sayonara to blocked pores and oil!
Finally, if you’re worried about the size of your pores, try adding the Bioré® Charcoal Pore Minimiser to your skin care routine. This exfoliates skin and washes away impurities while helping to visibly reduce the size of pores. Cleaner skin and smaller pores? Yes, please!
