Why You Should Add Charcoal to Your Beauty Routine

Why You Should Add Charcoal to Your Beauty Routine

Trying to improve your skin by putting dark, seemingly dirty charcoal on it might seem counterintuitive, but in fact adding a charcoal to your skincare (or hair) routine could really help give you the clean, fresh feeling you're looking for. 


A natural filter, charcoal does a really good job of removing deep-down dirt, oil, and impurities. It can act like a magnet for dirt, oil, and anything else that is clogging up your pores. It's actually known to absorb 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, making it an amazing ingredient to give skin a seriously deep clean. Charcoal can also be added to your hair routine to draw out oil and help you avoid those dreaded greasy hair days.

Bioré® recently launched a new line of charcoal products -- everything from toners and scrubs to strips and masks -- which join other charcoal options already on the market. Check out or picks for the best charcoal beauty products below.
