I’ve really been getting into cleansing my face everyday with charcoal infused products. I’ve been using a Konjac bamboo charcoal sponge along with an activated charcoal facial cleanser and my face has never felt so smooth. The combo of these two items has really cleaned out my pores and kept blemishes at bay. The secret behind it is that activated charcoal acts like a magnet to attract and absorb dirt and oil. So it literally is pulling all the gunk out of your pores like a magnet. The result is smoother skin and shrinking pores.
This sponge is made from natural Konjac root fiber and infused with activated bamboo charcoal. You can even use the sponge on it’s own but I like to add the cleanser for extra oomph. It’s easy to use and comes rock hard at first. You just dampen it with some water to soften it up and then gently rub on your face in a circular motion. Great way to throw in some exfoliating as well.
Some benefits of Charcoal are:
- Make pores smaller and cleaner.
- Take care of oily skin.
- Treat acne.
- Deep clean your skin.
- Soothe and heal bites, cuts and skin irritations
As far as moisturizing goes this Darphin Hydraskin Rich face cream has been doing the job exceptionally well. It’s so rich and leaves your skin feeling healthy and plump. It feels quite luxurious on the skin and it smells so good too! I love smelling traces of it left on my pillow. Formulated with Darphin’s Hydra-Structure™ Technology and powerful naturals salicornia herbacea and butterfly lavender, it revives the skin’s natural moisture and will leave you having that 24hr all day glow.
The key ingredients are:
- Imperata Cylindrica: The extract of a dessert plants whose roots can be used to hydrate the skin and help it retain moisture.
- Sodium Hyaluronate: Secures moisture and creates fullness in the skin. Makes for a plumper, younger looking complexion.
I also use oils for extra hydration. I’m currently lovingPure Truth™ Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil. I use it in combo with their serum that has five-source vitamin C complex to help brighten the skin and boost collagen.
This is not skincare related but part of what I use for my morning routine. Some of you guys already know that I am obsessed with Gypsy Water from Byredo. It’s my go to scent and I want it all over me at all times lol. It’s a perfect daytime scent, not overpowering and is just so fresh and earthy.
What are some of your beauty skincare favs? I’m always eager to try new things that really work magic on my skin. Let me know your go-tos below.
