On the other hand, one pays attention to the galenic form used, which it can pose problem. For example, we avoid patches and masks on dry and sensitive skin, otherwise they will be weaker.

Bamboo Charcoal, a “vacuum cleaner” with impurities
Bamboo charcoal, obtained by heating wood at a very high temperature by depriving it of oxygen, has a porous and very airy structure. It has an extremely powerful absorption capacity that captures and eliminates any impurities such as sebum, dead skin or blackheads.
As a result, the skin is detoxified, it regains its radiance, and the pores are deeply deincrusted. The elimination of bacteria and dirt thus limits the appearance of pimples.
