When it comes to skin care, Khloé Kardashian is just like us: she gets plagued by blackheads from time-to-time. But unlike the rest us, Kardashian has a solution for this annoying skin care woe that isn’t a pore strip.

What makes charcoal so great for treating blackheads? Clogged pores are the biggest culprit behind blackheads and charcoal is a highly porous substance that acts like a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and toxins from pores for a clearer, brighter complexion. "I put it on whenever I feel like the texture of my skin is getting bumpy or after days of shooting wearing heavy makeup,” Kardashian said.

"I've tried a bunch of charcoal masks and this one trumps them all," Kardashian wrote in the post. "Not only does it dissolve and suck out the dirt from my pores, it's not drying like many other charcoal-based masks."

If there was any good excuse to do a face mask, this skin care advice from Kardashian would top the list.
