This Mask Is the Solution for Reactive Skin

Hygge: It's the Danish term for the feeling of warmth, comfort and coziness (and it's pronounced hoo-gah, by the way). It's the contentedness you feel when your house is full of family and good food for the holidays, or the peace you feel sitting on a patio as you watch the sun set with a glass of wine in hand. It's a concept that has taken the wellness world by storm, and now it's seeping into skin care. After all, what makes you feel more content and comfortable than having a great skin day, every day?

Charcoal is also super-popular in lots of beauty and personal care products -- everything from face masks to soaps to toothpastes. Basically, it's everywhere you look. But does this ashy black ingredient deserve superhero status? Or is it simply something that looks cool when you Instagram it?
