Charcoal mask to the rescue!

Why do I have a shiny face? I'm over 40 (well over 40!), so shouldn't I have DRY skin now? 

Just when you think you have your skin type figured out, hormones or humidity or who-the-heck-knows-what? throws you a curve ball and you have too much oil. What's a girl to do? 

I reached for my trusty charcoal mask because I know it absorbs excess oil in addition to a whole lot of other things! And then I wondered if all of you know the many benefits of a charcoal mask, the ultimate skincare multitasker. 

And this week's blog was born!
