Clear Out Your Pores with Activated Charcoal


Hey, what’s up? Charcoal!

Like fashion and beauty, skincare also has its fair share of trends. I’ve recently noticed a rise in charcoal-infused products and was curious about them right off the bat!

After gathering a good amount of skincare products chock-full of activated charcoal and using them consistently for a couple of weeks, I can honestly say that they have been clearing out the gunk from well within my pores! Best of all, by ridding my skin of all the impurities—the dirt and dead skin cells—the charcoal products have also minimized the size of my pores.

Removes Impurities

Boscia’s Charcoal MakeUp Melter and First Aid Beauty’s Cleansing Body Polish are the perfect product duo (face and body) for melting and buffing away impurities lodged in the skin. Boscia’s Charcoal MakeUp Melter is a cleansing oil-balm that melts way makeup (including the toughest mascara!) while keeping the skin hydrated. First Aid Beauty’s Cleansing Body Polish works to buff away the dry spots, while also keeping the skin hydrated as well.

These products are so good for the pores! If you like nose strips (ahem, the part where you exam their aftermath), you’ll love both Sephora’s Charcoal Nose Strip and Caolion’s Original Pore Pack. The former helps remove blackheads while the latter is phenomenal for tightening and cooling your pores. Herbivore’s Bamboo Charcoal Soap Bar exfoliates and detoxifies the body, and is perfect for those with blemish-prone skin!

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
