What is activated charcoal used for? 

In Artepil we use activated charcoal in some of our treatments, whether facial or body, this element will improve the appearance of the skin and give more luminosity and beauty to the face, it also has the ability to eliminate toxic chemicals, as there is an attraction between toxins and carbon particles, which allows absorbing impurities and toxins from the skin.


Benefits of using activated charcoal

Less greasy skin

Activated charcoal manages to reduce the oil that is created on the skin and therefore prevents the appearance of pimples or blackheads. It will reduce excessive shine in the T-Zone and leave only the shine that makes your skin look healthy and radiant. 

It eliminates bacteria and disinfects the face.

By performing a mask or facial treatment with activated charcoal, you will eliminate the bacteria accumulated on the skin, as well as the remains of dirt that have become embedded in the pores during your vacation or your day-to-day life. Remember that the treatment must be performed by qualified personnel to avoid affecting the sensitive skin of your face. 

Reduce pores

Activated charcoal acts directly on the pores, reducing their size by cleaning and disinfecting them in depth, which is why it is widely used in beauty routines.


Exfoliates your skin

Activated charcoal is a slightly irritating product, but it is so gentle that it is used as a skin exfoliant, it will remove dead skin cells and leave your skin smoother.


Depending on the needs of your skin an activated charcoal mask will be applied, either on the whole face or only on the "T zone", this will be determined by the expert hands of Artepil's staff, the process lasts 60 minutes, you can also combine this facial with one of our massages or body treatments.
