How to Improve Skin With Charcoal. Bamboo charcoal is made by burning pieces of bamboo at temperatures above 800 degrees. Bamboo charcoal absorbs odors, can purify water, and has many health and beauty benefits for your skin. Most places that sell health and beauty items now offer products with active bamboo charcoal in the ingredients.

Step 1

Shower with a body wash or bar soap that contains active charcoal. Bamboo charcoal absorbs into the pores on your skin and draws out the dirt and oils that are blocking the pores. Regular use can reduce or eliminate acne, bumps and blackheads.

Step 2

Give yourself a facial using a mask that contains active charcoal. This will improve your skin by absorbing oil on face and penetrating the skin to clean the lower dermal layer. Most charcoal masks require that you heat them before applying to help open pores and activate the charcoal.

Step 3

Wash your hands with bamboo charcoal soap for younger looking hands. Charcoal soap won't dry out your skin and helps to fight odors.

Step 4

Choose makeup that contains active charcoal if you wear cosmetics. Bamboo charcoal is an antioxidant that can improve our skin through absorption, and it will not cover and block your pores.

Step 5

Mix raw bamboo charcoal into your favorite skin care products before using them. Bamboo charcoal will mix easily into most hand and body lotions.
