The result can be the reduction of acne and an improvement in your complexion. Here's the thing with any beauty product, your body is an individual universe. Therefore, you have to test and try them for yourself to see what works.
If you do a search online, you will see different ways to use activated charcoal when it comes to caring for your skin.

Be careful when it comes to combinations of any product for your skin. Activated charcoal within itself is going to pull excess oil from your skin. Honey might be a better combination because it hydrates your skin when used.
On the other hand, your dry skin might have more of a challenge brewing if you choose apple cider vinegar or lemon juice with your activated charcoal.
