We’ve all heard that skin is the body’s largest organ. And, like its internal counterparts, from time to time your skin will appreciate a thorough cleaning for one week. A “facial detox” is simply a process of removing pollutants and impurities from the skin, and it should be a requisite part of every woman’s skin care ritual.
Why, you inquire? When your complexion becomes overloaded with toxins (like chlorine and phthalates), it begins to look dull and tired, and often develops fine lines, wrinkles, acne, blackheads, and enlarged pores.
And when lymphatic circulation—a system that helps rid the body of inflammation, water retention, and infection—slows down, so does cellular turnover, which accelerates aging. “Eventually, after a detox, skin will look glowing, soft, and radiant,”.

The mattifying offering promises to "absorb oil, impurities, and environmental pollutants to help detoxify skin." The charcoal powder works to draw out deep-seated debris to purify pores, while the mineral clays soak up excess oil. When I was feeling especially sweaty (my skin is more dry than oily, so I wanted to wait until I really needed some serious cleaning) I applied a thin layer and left the mask on for a few minutes, as directed.

It is used in acne products to draw out impurities, heal pimples, and prevent further breakouts. Also an anti-aging ingredient, activated charcoal is said to tighten pores and smooth the skin. It also reduces inflammation, which is significant in preventing premature aging.
