Secrets, treatment

Hi everyone, its been a while since ive been on Flaym lol. Just wondered if anyone had used Active charcoal/Charcoal (not sure if its the same thing😂) specifically on the face areas and has it worked to reduce redness and/or build up of dead skin??

Charcoal reduses acidity and is a neutral element it has been used for years and can even filter water.

Whats the name of that @Madmum, not sure if you can write it here? I used a coal tar based scalp treatment that worked well.
@Michelle Thank you, and i have not tried it yet but i did see a video on it which says it helps reduce inflammation, so thought id research and give it a try :)
