Can I use drawing charcoal on my face?
Correspondingly, can we use normal charcoal for face mask?
You can. But the charcoal used in masks are made specially to get the optimum properties required for use in masks. Normal charcoal may not have the required adsorption capacity and you will have to use a larger quantity to compensate.
Likewise, is charcoal facial good for skin? You can expect the masks to help unclog pores and absorb environmental pollutants, oil, and dirt from the skin. Charcoal is especially good for people with acne and blackheads as it can help reduce excess oil, says Dr. Jaliman.
Considering this, how long should you keep charcoal on your face?
about ten minutes
What can I mix with activated charcoal for face mask?
