Celebrity facialist, Joanna Vargas, on the front lines of skincare, founder of Joanna Vargas Salon, Skin Care Sanctuary on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and also star-studded Los Angeles, reveals her NEW Miracle Bar.
This is a charcoal soap and this means it has activated charcoal, a specially processed form of carbon, that has increasingly been used in natural soaps and cleansers. Charcoal has has high adsorptive powers and perhaps this is the reason it has been used medicinally since antiquity and as far back as 450 B.C according to Hindu texts.
This ability to draw other elements into itself is why this seemingly simple solution is used today to filter water from poisons and toxins. This is also the basic assumption on why using activated charcoal is a natural way to thoroughly cleanse skin and draw out dirt, oil, and other impurities.
The Joanna Vargas Miracle Bar uses this special form of charcoal that goes through a process of being heated with a gas that causes the charcoal to expand, creating a porous surface. This is what allows activated charcoal to then able to traps toxins and poisons.
Ms. Vargas created this soap for those suffering from acne and oily skin to help relieve their condition as this natural element has been proven to help humans.
This charcoal soap is deep cleansing, moisturizing and will rinse away impurities to deliver a flawless finish for all skin types. Formulated with skin repairing ingredients, this innovative bar of soap is non-drying and can be used on the face and body. It is perfect for those seeking a cleansed, balanced skin from head to toe.
The Miracle Bar is not drying as many charcoal soaps can be. This is because it is also formulated with olive oil and shea butter to balance the skin with hydration and moisture. A winning combination.
Olive Oil is anti-inflammatory and rich in fatty acids to soften the skin. Shea Butter hydrates and soothes the skin. Shea butter is packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins and unique fatty acids to nourish the skin while charcoal helps to keep the skin healthy and clear.
Joanna Vargas says, “This is probably the only soap I would ever recommend that you use on your face as most bars are normally too drying and not gentle on your visage.” However, she also points out that this bar of soap can be used by athletes after a heavy workout and perfect for people that live in major cities.
InStyle magazine says, “The Miracle Bar by Joanna Vargas is actually a miracle. It’s not stripping at all, but makes your skin feel clean, which is key when things feel super duper icky.”
You can use the soap in the following manner: If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you can use this soap daily. If your skin is normal to dry, try using it maybe 3 or 4 times a week, or whenever you need a deep cleanse. However, it’s the most ideal at night because it will really help cleanse your skin of the toxins it has come in contact with throughout the day.
