Charcoal is an all natural detoxifier that deep-cleans skin and draws out toxins. It is the star ingredient in two new products from MAC — Mineralize Charged Water Charcoal Spray ($26) and Mineralize Reset & Revive Charcoal Mask ($31). Combine the new products with the existing Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator ($31) for a detox system that will clarify skin and give it a glow from within. Available now at MAC stores and online at maccosmetics.com.

RX FOR DARK SKIN
Urban Skin Rx, a skincare line targeted to diverse skin tones, launches this month at Target stores nationwide. The collection was developed by Rachel Roff, a licensed medical aesthetician and founder of Urban Skin Solutions — a medical spa and laser center that caters to ethnic and diverse skin tones. Urban Skin Rx focuses on concerns specific to melanin-rich and dark skin. Target will carry the brand’s 3-in-1 bars which include the Clear Skin Cleansing Bar for oily or breakout-prone skin, the Anti-Aging Cleansing Bar to remedy dry, rough skin and the Even Tone Cleansing Bar with a blend of Kojic and Azelaic Acids to fight inflammation and promote even skin pigmentation. All are available for $12.99 each at Target stores.
