DETOX YOUR SKIN WITH CHARCOAL

Let’s chat about activated charcoal.

Ahhh, when it comes to natural beauty remedies it seems like there is always something new on the market.

We’ve seen activated charcoal just about everywhere in the media and now it’s popping up in all of our beauty products because of its amazing benefits.
