Completely coaled over

Every year seems to bring a new ‘wonder product’, promising to transform skin.

The latest ‘it’ ingredient is activated charcoal; carbon that is treated with oxygen to increase its absorbency, with the thinking behind it that because of charcoal’s binding abilities, it will draw out any impurities and excess oil.

Indeed, it is effective at cleansing skin without any need for harsh chemicals, so it’s worth introducing it into a cleansing routine for any age. It works wonders to decongest areas of skin, as well as detoxing to help cells fight ageing.

Most brands use the same levels of charcoal, so you don’t need to spend a lot to make your skin feel fresh, so try a cleanser at night or a weekly charcoal-infused mask and get your charcoal ON!

Perfect for a weekend away, Yes To… Tomatoes Detoxifying Facial Wipes are super handy.

Formulated with charcoal to help remove dirt and impurities whilst you cleanse, they will remove even stubborn mascara, while being good for skin. Best of all, the detoxifying formula is captured in a sleek, black wipe. Result.
