10 Fabulous Benefits And Uses Of Charcoal Soap
If you’ve been keeping abreast of all the latest trends in the health and beauty world, you’ll have heard all about the addition of charcoal to a number of beauty products. In this article, Beauty and Tips uncovers the benefits and uses of charcoal in soap.
Charcoal soap is black soap. Had grandma used it in the 1940s to wash her hands and face, we wouldn’t have been surprised. We’d have found it disgusting that someone had to do that, but we wouldn’t have been surprised.
After all, there was no such thing as lavender and elderflower soap in those days (gorgeous).
However, it’s 2017 and your best friends are the ones who are soaping themselves up in the shower with charcoal soap! What gives?!
Mankind has known all about charcoal’s medicinal properties for thousands of years now. Indeed, the Ancient Egyptians used to clean their wounds with it, while the Hindus filtered their water with charcoal.
Fast-forward to 2017, and Westerners have finally realised how beneficial it is to our skin and overall wellbeing.
Does the idea of black soap repulse you? Can you really bring yourself to lather your body with charcoal?!
Here are 10 good reasons why you need to add charcoal soap to your beauty regime:
Charcoal Soap Remedies Oily Skin
Oily skin is SUCH a pain. Right?
The thing with oily skin is that it just doesn’t seem to go away, no matter what you try.
Worse still, it gets even worse in the summer months. That’s really not cool!
If you’re literally exhausted from having tried lots and lots of methods to treat your oily skin, it’s now time to give charcoal soap a chance.
This black soap absorbs all that excess oil, taking dirt and debris with it, too. It cleans up your skin, removing all the unwanted oil.
Should’ve just trusted charcoal all along, huh?
Charcoal Soap Slows Down The Ageing Process
Let’s face it, no one wants to age ever. Nobody wants to get older.
But especially no one wants to look older than they actually are.
When the ageing process is sped up, it can be really upsetting. Wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines all contribute to make us age prematurely.
There is a way to eliminate such obvious signs of ageing, however. And it comes in the form of – you’ve guessed it – charcoal soap.
Washing with charcoal soap basically means you’re washing away your fine lines and wrinkles, thus slowing down the ageing process to its normal pace.
Calm down, ageing process!
Charcoal Soap Can Cure Stings And Bites
If you ever get bitten by a spider or stung by a bee, you should know that you can turn to charcoal soap for assistance.
This is why you should really keep a bar of it in your house, as it can come in handy during an emergency.
It works by drawing out the toxins from bites, and can help to remove the stings completely.
Charcoal Soap Is Amazing For Your Skin
Now come on. Who doesn’t want amazing skin? Who doesn’t want their skin to glow like a teenagers? Who doesn’t want their skin to look rejuvenated and healthy again? Who doesn’t want to slow down the ageing process?
And who wants to use charcoal soap to get such amazing skin?!
Yes? You do?! Yay!
The things we’ll do for amazing skin really is, well, amazing. Women who want to glow and glisten are now prepared to cover themselves in charcoal soap. It works, too. It eliminates all the impurities that have built up in your pores, drawing them out (as well as dead skin cells), thereby leaving you with fabulous skin.
Charcoal Soap Treats Acne
Acne can be pretty horrendous, huh? For many women who struggle with acne, the skin condition can have a really debilitating effect on their self-esteem.
Worse still, acne gets really sore.
Charcoal soap has been found to provide relief from acne. It removes both skin impurities and toxins, and can even clear up acne scars.
Get on it.
Charcoal Soap Treats Psoriasis
Arguably just as bad as acne (or perhaps even worse), psoriasis is a nasty skin condition that doesn’t really ever go away. It doesn’t look nice, leaves scarring, and can be really painful.
However, you can manage it and keep it in check by doing the right things. And adding charcoal soap to your beauty regime can help.
Charcoal soap is an amazing exfoliant that removes dead skin cells. It also sweeps up grime and dirt, and treats psoriasis.
Charcoal Soap Can Whiten Your Teeth
It might sound counter productive for black soap to whiten your teeth – but it can. Just add a dab of charcoal soup to your toothpaste and you’re away! But make sure you don’t swallow!
Charcoal Soap Can Tighten Your Skin
Many women would admit they’d prefer to have tighter, firmer skin. But no matter what they do, it just doesn’t seem to be forthcoming. What gives?
As we get older, our skin loosens. But it’s not fair when it loosens SO EARLY!
Fortunately, this doesn’t mean your skin will hang loose forever. It can still be rescued. For tighter, firmer skin, start showering with charcoal soap. It’s got that seemingly magical quality that banishes loose skin.
Charcoal Soap Can Shrink Pores
Have you become concerned recently over the size of your pores? There are a few reasons why pores grow bigger and thus more visible.
It starts with dust, pollution and smoke from outdoors settling on our skin and pores. Once this happens, the toxins start to actually highlight our pores, making them so much more noticeable!
To stop this from wreaking havoc with your self-esteem, start using charcoal soap. It draws out the grime and the dirt, treating clogged pores and shrinking them in size.
Charcoal Soap Treats Dandruff
Okay, so dandruff isn’t painful or anything like that. But it doesn’t look good, and it can really wreck our self-esteem.
Worse still, it sometimes feels as though it just won’t go away, no matter what you do.
Dandruff is another skin condition that the amazing and awesome charcoal soap can treat.
