Your Instagram feed may be filled with nothing but black-hued foods lately due to the trend of goth ice cream, goth lattes, and now, goth pizza. But charcoal ingredients aren’t just popular in the foodie scene — they’re also big in the beauty world. Charcoal-based skin care can be really helpful, as they bind sebum and impurities found in the pores, leaving your complexion super fresh and matte.

If you are plagued with acne-prone skin, selecting skin care products with the right pimple-fighting ingredients can definitely help keep those gnarly breakouts at bay. Sounds like the perfect reason to make your beauty routine more goth.

Charcoal isn’t the only super-powered black skin care ingredient known to revolutionize acne-busting beauty. African black soap, moringa, and black tea also deserve honorable mentions, as they also combat oiliness,  keeping unwanted breakouts and pimples under control. To bring some black skin care products to your everyday routine, here are 16 essentials your face is totally going to fall in love with.
