Skin Detoxing with Activated Charcoal

Over the past couple of years, People have become more aware of what detoxing is and have found more helpful ways to aid their bodies in the process. Our bodies are naturally designed to detox, take in the good and eliminate the bad. The simple act of breathing in (bring in fresh oxygen) and breathing out (exhaling carbon dioxide) is detoxing. Since we now live in an overpolluted world from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the chemicals we put on our skin, sometimes our bodies become overloaded with toxins. When our bodies can not keep up with proper detoxing we start to suffer. Looking at this from the skin aspect you can suffer from conditions such as dark circles, acne, dullness, dehydration or even sallowness. There has been one ingredient effective at helping with the detoxing process, and it is activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. It is often given internally to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. It works the exact same way for your skin. When using activated charcoal on your skin, it will draw pollution, chemicals and toxins off and safely eliminate them when you rinse with water. Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

Lemongrass Spa Products launched three new skincare products handcrafted with activated charcoal to help your skin detox. Incorporating these products into your skincare routine or using them all together once or twice a week, as a system will help liven up your skin. If you live in a city or suburb I would recommend using these more often as the exposure to pollution is much higher in those areas. Here are some ways you can incorporate each new product into your skincare to achieve healthier skin!

  • Detoxifying Charcoal Face Soap Replace the cleanser you use at night with this face soap. This will help detox from the environmental pollution your skin has absorbed throughout the day. Even if you work at home, stepping outside for a walk or running errands exposes you to pollution.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish Mixing activated charcoal with a gentle exfoliator is a double detox. Not only are you removing cell build up, but you’re also allowing the activated charcoal to work deeper when exfoliating. After you give this product a gentle scrub on your skin, allow it to sit for 1-2 minutes and let the activated charcoal absorb more before rinsing. Enhanced with acai berry and raspberry seed oil antioxidants, you’ll enjoy a subtle fruit essence upon application. This is perfect if you don’t have time to do a full-face mask or detox system. Include this once or twice a week into your routine.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Mask This is great to add to your routine when you have at least 10 minutes or more to allow it to work to its full capacity. If you chose to do your full detoxing routine once a week then apply this mask after you have used the Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish.

Give the Gift of Healthy Skin

With the holiday season in full swing it’s important to take care of your skin. Festive parties and family gatherings require us to put our best face forward, and it all starts with a good skincare routine. Having a fresh, clean and natural skincare routine doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Here are three easy and quick (because who has a lot of time???) tips to get the best deals for those of us who are on a skincare budget.

Tip #1 Purchase skincare kits

Lemongrass Spa offers a variety of skincare kits ranging from a basic routine to a more advance routine. The best thing is they also offer them for a variety of different skin types! When you buy the face kits you are receiving full size products for an added discount then purchasing them individually. So to get the best bang for your buck I would advise in investing in a skin care kit! Another option is a Travel Face Care Kit; these trial sized kits make perfect stocking stuffers and are a great way for someone to try new products.

There are several face kits Lemongrass Spa offers: Basic #1 Dry or Sensitive Skin, Basic #2 Oily or Acne Prone Skin, Basic #3 Normal or Dry Skin, Basic #4 Oily or Acne Prone Skin, Ultimate for Normal or Dry Skin, Ultimate for Oily or Acne Prone, Ultimate with Prebiotics, Luxury System for Normal Skin, Luxury System for Dry Skin and Ultimate for Oily or Blemished Skin

Why Using Oil on Oily Skin Might Surprise You

Will using oil on my oily skin make it worse? Will it make my skin look greasy? Will it cause acne? Can I cleanse my skin with just oil? These are all concerns people with oily skin have when considering incorporating naturals oils into their skincare regimen and you’ll find them addressed below.Everyone with every skin type can benefit from using natural oil on their skin because it provides the most rapid results for hydrating and moisturizing.  Oils provide your skin with vitamins and omega’s, both of which help guard against aging and aid in healing a variety of skin issues.

  1. Will using oil on oily skin make it worse? No. People with an oily skin type have larger pores, which produces more oil (click here to read my blog on how to determine your skin type). The problem with people who have oily skin is their want to strip or remove all of the oil off their skin. They either contribute excess oil production to causing acne (which it does not), or they don’t want to look “shiny”. When they do this they cause their skin to overcompensate and produce even more oil. When you put oil on oily skin it tricks your skin into thinking it has enough oil on it and does not need to produce anymore. Over time your skin will stop overcompensating and balance out.
  2. Will using oil make my skin look greasy? No. When using the right oil for your skin type and the correct amount your skin should absorb most of the oil, leaving no greasy residue and just a healthy glow! The key to using oil is the ‘less is more’ approach. Unless you are using it to cleanse the skin, you should only use a tiny amount. Also, the type of oil you are using on your skin will help with how your skin will absorb it.
  3. Will using oils cause acne? It is possible. Oils do have a comedogenic (pore clogging) rating from high to low. The oils itself do not cause acne, but if you are using an oil with a high comedogenic rating and have large pores, it could clog them and cause breakouts. Before using oils, research the best oils for your skin type. This will eliminate any unwanted breakouts. When you find the correct oils they can actually help heal acne and clear the skin.
  4. Can I cleanse my skin with just oil? Yes! This is the best example of like attracting like. When you are removing makeup, dirt and excess oil, it is beneficial to use a product that will attach itself to these impurities. Oil will attach to them, and then when you remove the oil everything else will remove with it. If you are also having trouble with cleansers stripping your skin, I would suggest massaging a little bit of oil on your skin before cleansing. This will create a protective barrier and ensure your skin won’t become stripped along with deep cleaning the makeup and dirt out of the pores.

Lemongrass Spa Products offer a variety of different types of oils. The Organic Anti-Aging Oil Serum is rich in vitamins B, C and E that helps guard against free radicals and boost luminosity. The Baby Massage Oil and Coconut Crème Massage Oil are great in place of or addition to moisturizers for an extra hydration boost. The new Men’s Essentials Beard Oil is excellent for conditioning men’s facial hair and skin, while reducing itchiness or irritations associated with hair growth. Last is the Organic Eye Makeup Remover, which replenishes the skin with nutrients and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Enjoy using and incorporating these oils into your daily skincare routine!
