As the weather gets colder, no part of a person’s skin is impacted more than their face. And because Calgary’s weather is shaping up to be extra harsh this year, one product you may want to add to your beauty regimen is Dermalogica’s Charcoal Rescue Masque.
This product is made with activated charcoal, which is a carbonized, mineral-rich material that can absorb more than 1,000 times its weight in positively charged compounds. This makes it a great material for attracting positively charged compounds such as skin oils, dirt, makeup and other impurities that attach to your face throughout the day.
In a sense, the activated charcoal acts like a magnet, attracting skin oils, dirt, makeup and other impurities, so that when you rinse off the masque after 10 minutes, it takes all the skin oils, dirt, makeup and other impurities with it. This leaves your skin looking bright, pure and fresh.
Activated charcoal is so good at pulling out impurities that it has been used in hospital emergency rooms to adsorb poisons from bodies.
