Sensitive skin: People with sensitive skin often find that harsher ingredients can irritate their skin. This can be in the form of dry, red or blotchy skin, so people have to be weary about what a product is made from. The beauty of activated charcoal is that it’s gentle on the skin, so it shouldn't irritate people with sensitive skin. Be sure to check with a small patch test first, to make sure. The NIVEA MEN Deep Shower Gel is ideal for thoroughly cleansing sensitive skin, with gentle microfine clay.
Oily skin: Oily skin can be caused by hormonal changes or occur naturally for some people. Activated charcoal helps to remove oil from your skin. This means that it can reduce the appearance of shiny, greasing looking skin. Activated charcoal for face cleansing can reduce the buildup of oil and prevent breakouts and acne.
Combination skin: People who have areas of both dry and oily skin have combination skin. Using activated charcoal for combination skin routines should help to balance out both factors. Whilst it removes excess oil from your skin, be careful not to over use it on drier areas, as it could course further dryness.
Normal skin: People who do not have overly dry or oily skin have normal skin. With normal skin, activated charcoal works just the same, removing impurities and excess oil. Be sure not to use activated charcoal for face cleansing too often as it may cause dryness.
