Suggestion from my side, when you discuss the topic with your close knits you will soon realise this is the common topics discussed with many of the ladies around and you are one among them. Ladies around their early 25’s look very close to 30’s and ladies with their 30’s start looking old horribly.

Charcoal helps to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines which make your face look dull and old.

Loose skin is a symptom when your skin starts looking old and it is very important to take the necessary steps early as possible. Your lower chin and cheeks appears to be loose and seems to have filled with wrinkles and fine lines on them which don’t look good at all. To get rid of this problem, I would say charcoal is the only ingredient which helps in skin firming and tightening with a good rate of speed.


8. Suitable For All Type Of Skin

Type of skin matter a lot, when you count on your vanity products. Many a times, I like a particular product but pull back my hands just because it does not support my skin type. This is not the case with charcoal based product and it suitable for all type of skin, it nourishes and moisturises the dry skin well whereas in the case of skin it pulls out the dirt along with extra oil present on the face.
