Best Activated Charcoal Beauty Products

Washing you face with soap and water? You’re living in the past. It might seem strange, but charcoal is one of the best ingredients for getting your skin clean. The natural substance helps to draw out impurities and toxins, leaving your skin clear but still soft.  Check out the following charcoal-filled products and add this ingredient to your beauty routine.
