When used in baths, foot soaks or "mud" masks, activated charcoal can draw impurities from the body and skin, moisturize skin cells, stimulate lymphatic flow and circulation, tighten pores, treat acne, heal bug bites and cuts, and balance oily skin. Activated charcoal is also great for absorbing odors, which makes it perfect for helping feet smell clean and fresh.
Activated charcoal is especially helpful with detoxing the body when used in balneotherapy foot soaks as the feet are truly one of the main centers of the body. Many diseases and ailments appear on the feet before anywhere else, and many people believe the body can be healed through the feet. Examples of that would include foot reflexology and the ancient practice of applying onion slices to the feet to treat a cold or the flu.
