A Carbon facial, also known as a "charcoal facial" is a cosmetic treatment that uses activated charcoal to deep cleanse the skin and improve its overall appearance and texture. The treatment typically involves the following steps :
Cleansing : The skin is cleansed to remove any makeup, impurities, and oils.
Exfoliation : The skin is exfoliated using a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells.
Activated charcoal application : A thick layer of activated charcoal is applied to the skin. The charcoal is left on for about 10-15 minutes to draw out impurities and toxins from the skin.
Extraction : Blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities are removed using a gentle extractor tool.
Hydration : The skin is hydrated and nourished using a serum or moisturizer that is tailored to the individual's skin type and concerns.
Sunscreen : Sunscreen is applied to protect the skin from UV rays.
The advantages of a Carbon facial include :
Deep cleansing and purification of the skin
Improved skin texture and tone
Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Reduced appearance of acne, blackheads, and whiteheads
