Charcoal Face Wash- Why is it good?

Charcoal is the magic element in the skincare industry today. The ability to absorb all the impurities, excessive oil, and bacteria from the pores of the skin makes it an unbeatable necessity for skincare. For obvious reasons, the environment is not fit to lead a healthy lifestyle. The insurmountable pollution, the harmful UV rays of the sun, contribute a great deal to damaging our skin. 

The facial skin is twice as sensitive as the body’s skin. This is because the facial skin has comparatively more sebaceous glands and the face epidermis is only 0.12 mm thick compared to 0.60 mm of the body skin. This makes our facial skin more sensitive to pollution, toxins, and bacteria. 

Pores and Skin Issues

The pores on your face, if not looked after and taken care of regularly, can throw an ultimate tantrum like a spoiled child. A tantrum that is so stubborn that it can take you ages to get rid of it. Yes, that oily skin, acne, dull skin, a breakout in most of the cases is a result of large pores on your skin. 

It may be due to clogged pores or sun damage or it could be because of aging or blackheads. What matters is that it does some real damage to your skin, which can cause trouble in the long run. The smaller the pore, the clearer the skin.

Clogged Pores and Oily Skin 

Pores are nothing but glorified hair follicles on the skin that can make way for the sebum gland to secrete excessive oil. It is no wonder that the pores enlarge if they are left clogged with oil for a long time. The enlarged pores further increase the secretion of oil in the skin and this is what may lead to oily skin.

Sunlight and Dull Skin

Sunlight is one of the reasons for enlarged pores on the skin. The more time you spend tanning on a beach or with your skin exposed to the sunlight, the more your pores get damaged. Next time you’re out, make sure you use sunscreen. The enlarged pores and harmful sunlight can also lead to dull skin and drain the life out of the skin cells.

How Does Charcoal Face Wash Help?

Charcoal has completely transformed the healthcare and beauty industry. The benefit of this single ingredient on the skin is almost magical. Clear skin became a reality for many and natural exfoliation of the skin brings back its brightness. Here’s why you should try charcoal face wash for yourself.

Removes Blackhead 

Blackheads and whiteheads are those stubborn spots on the face that appear due to pores clogged with dead cells, bacteria, and oil. The pores remain blocked due to blackheads and when they are removed, the closed pores leave whiteheads on the face. 

Charcoal face wash removes the oil and dead skin cells from deep within the skin. Applying a few drops gently on the skin for two to three minutes can absorb all the dead cells and oil, naturally leaving the pores clean, without leaving an aftereffect on the skin.

Extracts Bacteria and Impurities

Bacteria and impurities are two very common reasons for skin infection. The break out of dry skin or excessively oily skin is due to the harmful bacteria and impurities accumulated deep within which cannot be removed with normal ingredients.

Activated charcoal balances these bacterias and completely extracts the impurities from the skin, removing half of the reason for skin problems. Impurities, whether internal or external, can do some serious damage to the skin.

Opens Clogged Pores

After a long discussion above, it is clear how clogged and enlarged pores become the main reason for early wrinkles, dull skin, acne, and many other problems. Hence, charcoal face wash comes to your rescue here. The charcoal removes all the reasons for clogged pores and reduces its size so that it does not affect your features and evens out your tone.

Excessive oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, impurities, dust, anything that can cause damage to the skin is gently removed from the skin without leaving any trace.

Prevents Acne

Acne is the most common skin related complaint among both men and women. Acne is usually caused due to clogged pores and bacterias. However, it can also be caused due to hormonal imbalance, stress, or an unhealthy diet. The food we eat has a lot to do with everything that goes around in our body. Hence, the excess oil production in the skin is visible on the face in the form of acne. 

Charcoal face wash balances the oil in the skin and prevents acne. Once the skin is all clear of bacteria, dead cells, and impurities, the chances of an acne breakout on the skin decreases. 

Firm Skin

No one wants to look like they are 50 years old during their 20s or 30s. In fact, the idea of early wrinkles causes chills running down the spine for many people. Early wrinkles usually occur because the skin loses its firmness and tightness that is required to hold it all together. Enlarged pores are one of the reasons for early age wrinkles on the face.

Charcoal face wash reduces the pore size and tightens the skin after cleaning. It keeps the skin hydrated and increases firmness. The charcoal face wash is your way to flawless beauty and bright skin.

Say No to Dull Skin

That’s it! With charcoal products in the market, you have no excuse to not take care of your skin. Charcoal is produced using many kinds of wood, bamboo, and coconut burns. These burns are then activated for further use. 

Charcoal face wash can help you achieve clear and flawless skin. Check out Les Creme for some amazing charcoal face washes.

  1. Why did you decide to pursue acting and how did you know that New York City was where you wanted to be?

To be completely honest with you, I had zero clue what my “thing” was when I was in an all girls Catholic school in Delhi. Everyone around me was either winning extempore rounds, school debates or getting the lead role in our annual Christmas play without auditioning. I clearly wasn’t the most academically gifted student and in a class that had over 175 girls in it, I wasn’t the most conspicuous as well. I believe it was this fear of invisibility, of being excluded that led me to go all in for this acting opportunity where I had to play the role of a tortured kid in a street play. At that time my resume was just limited to my height which, I am pleased to inform, remains intact at 4’11. I think that’s what got me the role!That play struck a chord deep within. Whether it was the energy of doing live theatre or seeing some semblance of respect in my teachers’ eyes- I don’t know, but I wanted more of it. While the experience of acting in school helped me improve my confidence and surprisingly, my grades as well, I was still insecure about my choice to pursue acting professionally. In university, I went ahead with a safe option of pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in History and refused to join the Drama Society. Primarily because I didn’t know if I could do it. So what did I do to face this fear? I moved to a whole new continent without even knowing why. Perhaps it was my unmitigated love for (censored) Sex and the City or the need to have bagels as my staple breakfast diet. Who knows? But what I did know was that I needed a chance to experiment with my craft, to find out if I could really do it, and to quote Jay-Z ``If you make it here you can make it anywhere” Right? It’s funny that my fear of invisibility which pushed me towards acting, drew me to a city where being visible is one of the toughest things to accomplish.

  1. What lessons have you learnt thus far as an artist on American soil? And how do they show up in your work?

One must always be true to their own identity and embrace it rather than run from it. While the odds may be stacked up against you, it is more empowering to stick with what you know, than to submerge yourself into what “they” want. Real talk, “they” truly don’t care about you so you might as well go ahead and do what you love and add some masala to it while you’re at it. This lesson holds not just for my work but for my personal life as well. So many times I’ve been asked to repeat myself because people had issues with my accent. I don’t say issues “understanding” my accent but just issues with it. It seems there is a very specific cadence of tone or voice that is deemed acceptable or worthy of response when it comes to the English language in America. I would love my work to challenge that, to show that people who sound like me, who mix English with their mother tongue are capable of telling narratives that are gripping, valid and worthy of viewership.

  1. How do you hope that your presence on the stage or on the screen, even behind the scenes as a writer, producer,  will inspire young creators who are also coming in trying to engage in the same process as you?

A network, that I shouldn’t name (yet), was looking for a South Asian actress with an accent obviously, and they needed them to speak in one of the South Asian languages. I did get the chance to tape myself and improvise in my native tongue. However, on the day of the submission I was told that the network  will not be accepting someone on a work visa. This is the fifth time this has happened to me. While all this is great fodder for my grand ‘thank you’ speech that I would love to make one day, it has also led to this growing confusion that irks me like that one ankle sock that refuses to co-exist with your latest bootie. Confusion because I feel I am in this state of constant unknowing when it comes to TV. I don’t genuinely know whether or not I’m good at it because I’m never allowed to present my work in front of the people who are the gatekeepers of it. But what I do know is that stopping isn’t an option for me. And this isn’t some you can do it motivational spiel that various self proclaimed “gurus”  keep spewing about. I genuinely think that there is a way to pierce this unnecessary barricade that impedes non- citizen artists from presenting their work forward and I truly want to be a part of that movement so that people who look like me or will be in my position five years from now are not as massively confused as I am today.

  1. Do you plan on continuing with production? Is being a producer what’s bringing you the most fulfillment now?

I accepted the role of a producer rather unwillingly as most of the projects that came my way were through my acting network. I deeply appreciated that my network took note of my resourcefulness, but it also hurt that they forgot to take note of the fact that I am an actor first. While these projects were not large scale it still bothered me to watch the paucity of diversity in each one of them. That’s when I decided that if I am to take on the arduous task of being a producer then I better invest and uplift stories that were true to what I knew and understood to be the POC experience in America. I want to ensure that these stories were told right. Keeping that as my throughline, I can most definitely say that producing stories that align with my values and vision has definitely proven to be more fulfilling than I had imagined.

  1. COVID-19 was obviously challenging for the entire world, the entertainment industry included. What were the major takeaways, positive or negative, from that experience?

It’s hard to see Covid-19 under a positive light given what is going on in the global south, especially in my country, India. To see one part of my world  move on at warp speed, effortlessly forgetting the collective trauma and the ache we all felt in the year 2020. While the other part struggles non-stop to obtain even the most basic of medical supplies. It’s one of the toughest contradictions I have to live with. But, it’s also made me more wary of this unacknowledged global divide and how unnerving it can be for someone who has their toes dipped in such extremely different worlds. However, my mother says, one must always look at the bright side. I try with all my might to do so, especially with something as oppressive as Covid. So, no matter how unforgiving it was (still is), Covid did bring to light some of the most heroic stories of our times. The indefatigable spirit of the health care and the essential workers, the acumen of the common people of India who used social media to raise funds for oxygen tanks and supplies when the government abandoned them, the young men and women who risked their lives to donate blood to save the elderly and finally the NGOs that worked relentlessly to provide aid to the smallest of villages.  All these stories show us that some heroes really do exist beyond the cinematic universe of  Marveland they don’t necessarily wear capes or need to have a specific kind of accent or look to be deemed worthy of the Hero’s Journey.
