The 10 Best Charcoal Masks
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Activated charcoal is used in a wide variety of ways, from air and water filters to an emergency treatment for poisoning, because it basically acts as a sponge that soaks up toxins, bacteria, and other impurities. With one of these masks, it will do the same for your skin, absorbing dirt and excess oil from deep within pores and leaving your face clean, glowing, and blackhead-free.

Investigated several peel-off masks, and No B.S. Blackhead Remover stood out for being more effective than most others without being painful to remove. For those with oily skin, Dermalogica Rescue, Origins Clear Improvement, and The Body Shop Purifying are all good options. For dry and sensitive complexions, FineVine Pore Minimizer, Chic Republic Hydrating Cream, and Brickell Men's Products Organic will provide a deep clean without being harsh or overly drying.
