I still remember when I used to stay at my aunt’s for school holidays, where she made all the kids use little pieces of charcoal to clean our teeth using our little fingers as a toothbrush, old grandma trick she said! I loved it and as a kid, I was amazed that this little black thing could make my teeth WHITER! Daaaaammmn!!
On a daily basis, our skin is exposed to dirt, toxin and many other impurities which end up clogging our pores and resulting in our complexion. I googled a little on the benefits of charcoal and I find out that one of them, was that it has the ability to absorb the excess oil produced by our skin and at the same time helps to pull out the dirt in our pores. (it’s the oil and dirt that makes them appear bigger)
I wanted to try a few charcoal-base products and came across a brand called “Be Sure” a few days ago. My sister, who is a pharmacist, also recommended those products and informed me that they have just received them in store. So, I got my hand on some of those lovelies to give them a try! All charcoal-based shampoo, face wash and even charcoal-aloe vera skin care.
I have been using the product now for the past 10 days. I have an oily skin type. Ever since I used the charcoal soap, I noticed a reduction in the oily effect. It is a good product for skin care, personally like it as it is gentle enough to use, both, for the face and body.
The soap can be used for both face and body. Some people prefer the soap texture, others more in the form of a liquid base for the face. (both are available)
While on one hand, it extracts the excess of oil from the oily skin, it also moisturisers and nourishes dry skin. The charcoal soap also effectively treats skin allergies and redness on the face.
When used as a shampoo it helps treat skin condition like dandruff and dry scalp.
How does charcoal help your skin and hair?
•Balances oily skin
•Reduce pore size
•Takes out impurities from the skin
•Prevents premature ageing
•Clear skin blemishes
“Be Sure” activated charcoal range of products are completely inexpensive for all it treats and as good as the other charcoal brands. You can find them in pharmacies, beauty parlours, hair salons and super-markets. They are between Rs 190 to Rs 390.
I am totally a complete fan.
Happy Bathing !!
