When you think of charcoal, your first thought probably goes to summer cooking on the grill, but charcoal is good for more than just delivering a tasty burger. According to MoreThanAlive.com, when used on your skin, charcoal draws toxins out of the pores. You could go to the salon for a pricey charcoal face mask, but if you want to save some money, try doing one at home instead.
